How to Buy a Sapphire2
Blue is a color beloved by many. Our passion for blue has resulted in a sapphire collection that spans a wide range of blue tones, from our light pastel Sweden Princess blues to the rich and velvety Royal Blue sapphires. Whatever your favorite blue, we have the shade you will love.
To the right is a tone scale for degrees of lightness & darkness. Rather than absolute starting and stopping points, the color groups overlap and can blend into one another.
We select loose sapphires individually and build a piece of jewelry around the gem. We choose sapphires that range in tone from Sweden Princess blue to Commodore blue.
The shade of navy to many people appears too dark. Our simple test is to hold a sapphire at arms length under normal lighting conditions. If it’s difficult to see the blue then it’s too dark. (these darker gems are very common in many stores).
