When you are shopping for blue sapphire jewelry, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the sapphire. The more vivid and bright the blue, the more valuable the blue sapphire. Cut and clarity also matter and the larger the carat weight, the more a blue sapphire will cost per carat. Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality blue sapphire to perfectly suit your design. What is the meaning of blue sapphire in the language of gems? Sapphire is the gem of truth and the soul: that's why we call a faithful friend "true blue." In ancient times, a gift of a blue sapphire was a pledge of trust and loyalty. This tradition makes blue sapphire engagement rings a perfect symbol of the promise to marry. Kate Middleton's sapphire engagement ring is the latest in a long tradition of royal blue sapphire engagement rings.
Sapphire is the September birthstone, the gem of the 5th and 45th wedding anniversary, and the zodiac gem for Virgo. Blue sapphire with fine color is so desirable that producers take an extra step after mining and before cutting to make sure that a sapphire has the brightest blue hue possible. Before their final polish, most sapphires are heated to almost 2,000 degrees in order to improve the color and clarity. Heat enhancement is stable, does not require special care, and does not reduce the gem's value. Blue sapphire jewelry is most often crafted in white or yellow gold or platinum but silver is also an option if budget is a concern. Because the bright cornflower blue color of your blue sapphire jewelry will catch the eye, you will want to match the color of blue sapphire earrings or a blue sapphire necklace closely to the color of a blue sapphire ring. Sapphire is a very durable gem that wears well over generations. Clean blue sapphire jewelry with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the stone where dust can collect. Gemvara's fine quality blue sapphire jewelry is designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.
