 A lot of people don’t realise that Sapphires come in a wide range of different colours, not just the blues that we all know and love. In general, the most desirable and valuable are the bright vivid cornflower blue varieties, but they also come in greens, pinks, yellows, orange, purple and even white.

Sapphires are super durable, 9/10 on the Mohs scale of hardness so second only to diamonds (which are still much harder than anything else). It’s relatively hardwearing compared to other gemstones making it ideal for jewellery that you wear every day.

Sapphires are often heat treated to improve the colour and it’s considered a perfectly acceptable process as the effects are permanent. Most of the stones we buy tend to not have been heat treated because we like the more natural feel and character of inconsistent colouring.




Care & Cleaning

Warm soapy water is a safe bet for cleaning your sapphire jewellery.
