Blue Sapphire Stones

There is something about the color blue that makes it the most favored color in the world. Psychologists say that there is something calming about the color as it reminds us of the sky on a clear day or the crystal clear depths of the ocean. Without knowing anything about blue sapphire stones from a gemologist’s point of view, they are among the most popular stones simply because of their color. However, in terms of a gemstone, sapphires are second only to diamonds in their hardness, coming in at 9 on the Mohs scale which makes them durable and easy to care for, and of course quite valuable.

What Exactly Is a Blue Sapphire?

The ‘funny’ thing about a blue sapphire is that you could say it is the same stone as a ruby only it is blue and not red! Both are gemstones of the corundum family of minerals but a blue sapphire gets its color from both titanium and iron impurities being present in the crystal while rubies derive their vivid red color from chromium. A sapphire then is any member of the corundum family that is colored anything but ruby red, and blue sapphire stones are not only the most beautiful, they are the most valuable. Going a step further, cornflower blue from gems mined in Kashmir is actually the most valuable of all the blues. Sapphires are only found in a few locations around the world, the most notable being Kashmir (India), Burma, Australia, Thailand, …

Emerald Cut Diamond Rings

When choosing a diamond engagement ring, there are a variety of factors to consider. You may have heard about the four C’s — color, clarity, carat, and cut. Each of these factors contributes to the unique beauty of each finished diamond. Here we will be discussing cut, emerald cut to be exact. This cut is rectangle-shaped with gently slanted corners. Made to showcase the clarity of a diamond, emerald cut features rectangular step-cut facets. When shopping for emerald cut diamond rings, it is a good idea to know more about the ratio of length to width. On average, a ratio of 1.35 is ideal for achieving a classic, sophisticated look.

Clarity is a word used in the gemstone world to describe blemishes and interior imperfections called inclusions. Inclusion might be a crack in the stone or even fragments of a totally different stone. Occasionally you can see diamond imperfections with the naked eye, although usually, a jeweler must examine the stone under 10 times magnification to grade the clarity. One thing to note about clarity inclusions is that small one that doesn’t affect the appearance of the diamond can be useful in verifying authenticity or even identifying the diamond if it is ever lost or stolen.
