What is Sapphire?
As you can see from the graphic that we have provided below, the mineral corundum is also known by its more common name, sapphire. Corundum is the mineral that makes up sapphires and rubies. However, the color red is the only one that can be called a Ruby because that is the name given to the precious gemstone.
This precious stone is offered in an extensive palette of hues and tones to choose from. As a direct consequence of this, the vast majority of our customers are under the impression that Blue Sapphire is not a color option.
On the other hand, this lovely gemstone can be purchased in Pink, Green, or Yellow, in addition to a wide variety of color intensities and shades. First and foremost, we are able to collaborate with customers to achieve the desired end product, which may include a specific color or shade.
The word "Sapphirus," which means "dear to the planet Saturn," is where we get the name "Sapphire." In Latin, the word sapphirus refers to the color pink, and this usage dates all the way back to the 17th century. As a direct consequence of this, pink sapphires are currently the most preferred option for use in engagement rings.
This precious stone has long been associated with aristocracy, honesty, sincerity, and steadfastness. In addition, it has been used for decades to embellish the robes of royalty and members of the clergy.
In addition to that, it has a reputation for being associated with romance and royalty. The connection was cemented in 1981 when Prince Charles presented Lady Diana with a ring set with a blue sapphire as an engagement present. Learn more about the engagement ring that Lady Diana wore.
Where did they originate from?
Mines in Madagascar produce the vast majority of the world's gem-quality stones. The rough is heated at low temperatures during the treatments that are used to intensify color. On the other hand, this process has no negative impact whatsoever on clarity.
The most well-known variations of pink
There is a wide range of shades, from very light pink to very dark purple pink. For instance, the broad spectrum of color intensities gives customers the opportunity to select a hue that best suits their tastes.
