Sapphire is a beautiful gemstone that has been a favorite among Italian fine jewelry designers for centuries. It is well known for being the luxurious, blue birthstone of September, but this jeweler’s dream has more going on than meets the eye. Did you know that the color of the sapphires in your favorite jewelry is actually determined by its supercharged ability to absorb different energies?
That’s right! The blue color in sapphires results from an electron transferring between metals, which creates an electromagnetic charge. This charge absorbs wavelengths that produce yellow light. When yellow light is removed from incident white light, the blue wavelengths are left to shine brilliantly. Due to their energetic nature, sapphires with fewer impurities will have more vivid hues of blue, which ultimately increases their aesthetic appeal and value.
Now that you’re ready to shop for sapphire jewelry, here are 3 gorgeous, Italian ring designs that demonstrate different styles in which the gemstone may be worn.
This colorful 18kt white gold ring showcases a round cabochon opal weighing 5.16cts surrounded by 6.79cts of vivid rose cut blue sapphires, for an overall flower-like design. Here the sapphires are used to create a floral effect while complementing the opal center.
