Sapphires are among the most popular gemstones and together with emeralds and rubies, they make up the big three of precious stones. Sapphires are corundums with a hardness of 9, so only diamonds are harder than them. They are very durable and retain their beautiful appearance even with minimal care.
COLOUR: Sapphires are known for their royal blue colour, but apart from red rubies, all other corundums are also classified as sapphires. You will therefore also come across sapphires in a range of colours including pink and yellow.
CUT: Jewellery with sapphires is most often decorated with stones in a round cut. However other shapes are also used, such as the oval cut (especially popular in rings and necklaces) or fantasy shapes such as the marquise, heart or teardrop.
WEIGHT: The weight of a sapphire is expressed in carats (ct) to 2 decimal places - 1 ct = 0.20 g. With earrings and jewellery which have multiple sapphires, we always state the total number of carats of all the stones.
CARE: Soak jewellery with sapphires in warm soapy water and clean it with a soft brush. You should protect the stones from pressure and temperature shocks.
