Sapphire Jewelry for Every Occasion

When it comes to pieces of jewelry that you want to make a statement, pieces containing sapphires can fit the bill. Any type of classic sapphire jewelry is going to look great regardless of the occasion that you are dressing for. While there's a temptation to turn to diamond jewelry for a special occasion or formal event, a beautiful sapphire can really make the difference and elevate a look with a splash of color.

The Allure of a Sapphire

Sapphire is one of the four true precious stones alongside diamond, emerald and ruby (all other stones used in jewelry are classed as semi-precious). Most people think of beautiful blue stones but there are various colors of sapphire.

Sapphire is the mineral corundum and it is the presence of different trace elements during formation that create different colored stones. Pure corundum produces a white sapphire but titanium, chromium, iron and vanadium, in varying degrees and solo or in combination can produce pink, yellow, green, black, brown and orange sapphires. Despite the beauty of the other colors, blue sapphires are the most popular choice for jewelry.

If you want to experiment with a bit of color or even a range of colors in your jewelry collection, then sapphires are the ideal precious stones to choose. The variety of choice in this single beautiful stone will be able to provide you with the burst of color from the color wheel that you are looking for, while also maintaining the air of sophistication and style that is so important in the world of jewelry. The great thing about sapphires is that they work with all precious metals in jewelry pieces: white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and sterling silver.

Another attraction of sapphire is that it is (in its blue form) the birthstone for September. Sapphire represents sincerity, truth, faithfulness and nobility.

With all of this in mind, here are some examples of occasions when any type of sapphire jewelry would be the perfect choice. With so much variety to select from, it really is impossible to make a bad choice when blue sapphire jewelry and the surrounding family of colors are in the equation.

Wedding Day

Everyday Wear

Eternity Ring

Sapphires are a perfect choice for this kind of ring that is deliberately distinct from something like a diamond ring.
