Blue Sapphire Buyer's Guide

Sapphire: The "celestial" sapphire, symbol of the heavens, bestower of innocence, truth, good health, and preserver of chastity, is reserved today as the birthstone of September.

Occurence: Other important sources of Sapphire now include Thailand, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), and Kenya. The wonderful, rich color of Sapphire combined with its high brilliance and wearability make it an unusually fine choice for any piece of jewelry. This guide defines the five essential characteristics of sapphire quality. By understanding these characteristics, you'll be able to shop with confidence. Print helpful list and take it with you when shopping so you can choose a beautiful piece of sapphire jewelry.

Sapphire Color: The finest sapphires are considered to be the blue variety-specially those from Burma and Kashmir, which are closest to the pure spectral blue. The Ceylon sapphires are a very pleasing shade of blue, often on the pastel side.

Sapphire Clarity: Clarity refers to the absence of internal flaws or inclusions. Type and placement of flaws are also very important. Sapphires also contain inclusions and even quality sapphires are lightly included. Dark sapphires show less inclusions and light sapphires show more. Jewelry industry prefers moderately included sapphires and that's what we offer.

Sapphire Clarity: Clarity refers to the absence of internal flaws or inclusions. Type and placement of flaws are also very important. Sapphires also contain inclusions and even quality sapphires are lightly included. Dark sapphires show less inclusions and light sapphires show more. Jewelry industry prefers moderately included sapphires and that's what we offer.

Sapphire Saturation: Saturation (color purity) is the brightness or vividness (dullness or drabness) of the color. It refers to the degree to which the hue is hidden by brown or gray. Colors with minimum amount of brown or gray are described as vivid or strong. For color purity GIA uses saturation and AGL uses intensity. Saturation can be "highly pure" and "slightly brownish or grayish".

Sapphire Cut: Cut effect the depth of color seen in the stone and influence the liveliness projected by the stone. A good cut will enhance stones natural beauty to the fullest. A poor cutter make may make the same stone less desirable, beacause a poor cut will significantly reduce the vividness and alter the depth of the color (saturation), usually producing a stone that is too dark. We offer well cut sapphires in our rings, earrings and bracelets.

Sapphire Size: The common unit of measurement for stones is weight, expressed in carats and decimal parts thereof. Also, remember again not to confuse weight with size. Some stones weigh more than others because stones have different density. Size of stone which can be diameter, or length and width is expressed in millimeters. Our stones are not cut deep to gain weight but are well cut sapphires offering you maximum size.

Sapphire Enhancements: Heating sapphire is a practice that is accepted by the jewelry industry. Sapphires that are not heated are very rare and demand very high prices.

Sapphire's Value: Sapphires which are well cut, cornflower blue colored and have minimum inclusions are most valuable.

Judging Sapphire Color: Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the American Gemological Institute (AGL) divides color into three components: hue, tone (lightness/darkness) and saturation (color purity). This provides a more precise and accurate description of gems. Evaluate gemstone color taking into consideration hue, tone and saturation. Pure, vivid colors are far more desirable than dull, muddy ones. Look for a rich blue color sapphire with a light shade in sapphire rings.

Sapphire Tone: Refers to the depth of color (light or dark). The lighest possible tone is colorless. The darkest is black. Tone is another word for the degree of lightness or darkness. Judging the tone of a stone is difficult because it doesnot display a single, uniform tone. To judge the tone of a stone, examine it face-up and look for areas of light and dark. Sapphiires can have tones: "light-medium," "medium," "medium-dark," and "dark". We prefer sapphires with medium tones and thats what we offer in our rings, bracelets and earrings.

Sapphire Hue: Refers to the basic colors of blue, gren, yellow, orange, red, purple and violet. All sapphires exhibit some other colors (hues) in addition to their basic blue color. To determine the hue, look for the dominant color in the face-up view. When you move the stone in different directions you see the different colors. Australian sapphires have a tint (hue) of green.

Important Factors: Both intensity and tone of color can be significantly affected by the proportioning of the cut. In other words, a good gem cutter working with a fine stone will be able to bring out its inherent beauty to the fullest. A poor cut will significantly reduce the vividness and alter the depth of the color (saturation), usually producing a stone that is too dark. In sapphires a shallow cut might bring more color saturation than a deeper cut. Some stones are cut deep for additional weight and tend to be dark in color. Inclusions are generally more apparent in light- to medium-color sapphires. Since sapphires generally embody some inclusions, look for a sapphire with a darker tone, as the inclusions will be effectively hidden in these darker gems.

Betrothal (Engagement) rings have been the ultimate pledge of love for  thousands of years and for thousands of years to come. The ring as a pledge of love and honor is said to be first mentioned in Roman literature by Plautus. Of such a ring the Roman poet Ovid writes "a ring soon destined to encircle the finger of a beautiful girl, a ring having no worth except the love of the giver." In ancient Egypt, they wore rings on the third finger of the left hand as a mark where the "vein of love" went directly to the heart, starting a tradition that continues even today in our era. When you pledge your love for her with a truly unique engagement ring, you are starting your own family heirloom tradition. The most important value factor to consider when shopping for blue sapphire engagement rings is the superaltive color quality of the center stone such as blue sapphire. Sndgems rare gorgeous deep blue sapphires are hand-selected for top quality conflict-free gems that are expertly cut by artisan slowly with patience for their maximum beauty. Sapphire captures the beauty of the sky. Our unparallel selection of engagement rings by Gelin Abaci, and other expert jewelry designers means you can find an engagement ring that perfectly symbolizes your important relationship. Proper attention needs to be given when cleaning blue sapphire engagement rings with mild soap: always use a extra soft brush where dust can be carefully gathered . When taking off your engagement ring, don't try to pull on the gemstone: this will not damage the gem but it can, over a period of time, stretch the precious metal that holds it in place, making the setting less secure. Be extra careful when removing your ring to wash your hands. Don't leave it on the edge of a wash basin where it can slip down the drain. Sndgems's fine quality blue sapphire engagement rings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand and not machine-made as are made by other jewelers of today in the United States of America.

Blue sapphire is noted as a regal gem, considered the gemstone of truth, the original "natural blue." In ancient times, a gift of a sapphire was a pledge of honesty and devotion. Princess Diana's blue sapphire engagement ring passed on to Kate Middleton is the latest in a long tradition of royal sapphires. A hand made ring given from the birth of a child to announcement of an engagement is a appropriate gift which will recall the memory of it for years to come.

Sapphire comes from the Greek word "sappheiros," meaning blue, so it's no surprise that beautiful rich blue is the most popular color for a sapphire. When shopping for magnificent blue sapphire jewelry of natural beauty, the most important factors usually to consider are the grade of any given quality, superlative color or shade, perfectly cut and not large size of the sapphire. Sapphires very rarely possess the deep blue color of the fine blue sapphire; generally the color is somewhat impure, possibly from the fact that their are more inclusions. The more vibrant and deeper the hue, the more valuable the blue sapphire will be. Also, note that the larger the size higher the carat weight, the more the blue sapphire will cost per carat weight. Just before their final finish, most blue sapphires are heat-enhanced to almost 2,000 degrees in order to improve their color and internal clarity. This jewelry industry standard treatment process does not require special care and does not decrease the gem's value. Sapphire is the September birthstone, the 5th and 45th wedding anniversary gem, and the zodiac gem sign for Virgo. All Sndgems jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a superlative-quality blue sapphire perfectly cut will be only hand-selected to most perfectly fit your design.
