It’s almost September, and we’re going to focus on beautiful sapphires! Preusser Jewelers highlights this gorgeous colored gemstone that’s more than just a rich vivid blue tone!
Sapphires as Colored Gemstones
Sapphires are stunning, and they come in fantastic colors! They’re September’s birthstone, and they gained popularity when Princess Diana chose it as her engagement ring, and again when her son Prince William gave it to Kate. Did you know sapphires come in every color of the rainbow? Everyone thinks they are just a deep blue color. A rich, intense blue is the most prized color, but sapphires also come in shades of green, yellows, oranges, pinks, violets, and shades of purple. When sapphires are so dark you aren’t sure what color they are, those are very poor quality. Sapphires are the second-hardest gem after diamond, which makes them a great option as an alternative to diamonds for a ring that is worn for a lifetime.
