Gemstone Details

Fancy Sapphire

Beloved for centuries as the ultimate gemstone, sapphire is part of the Corundum mineral family and is an ideal choice for everyday wear. With a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale, sapphire of any color is one of the hardest gemstones behind a diamond. They exist in blue, pink, green, yellow, orange, purple, colorless and black. Sapphires that are not blue, black or colorless are called fancy sapphires. Some sapphires may be considered ‘parti-colored’ by displaying combinations of different colors. Each color category has its own color range from different color-causing trace elements and sources.

Sapphire is found in many parts of the world, but the most prized sapphires are from Myanmar (Burma), Kashmir and Sri Lanka (Ceylon). Variations of fancy sapphire include the rare, orange-pink padparadscha sapphire as well as the unique star sapphire.

Due to their crystal growth, larger sapphires are most often found in fancy brilliant cuts, like oval or cushion, large rounds and emerald cuts are markedly rarer to encounter. No matter what the color, sapphires combine durability and beauty for generations of pleasure.

Sapphire is the birthstone for September and the gem of the 5th and 45th anniversaries.


The very name aquamarine brings to mind the clear blue waters of the sea. Unsurprisingly, since its name derives from the Latin words aqua marina for "water of the sea," the Greeks and Romans considered aquamarine the sailor’s gem, believing it would ensure safe and prosperous passage across stormy seas. 

It is the blue member of the beryl mineral family, which also includes emeralds, morganite and heliodor. With a 7.5 to 8.0 hardness on the Mohs scale, aquamarine is a durable gemstone that has featured in jewelry designs for hundreds of years. Often found in large clean crystals, it can be readily found and purchased in larger carat sizes relative to some other gemstones. 

Many aquamarines are greenish when mined and cut. For those who prefer a purer blue, these gemstones are heated to enhance their blue color permanently. Some prefer the greenish hues, saying the greener tones remind them more of the sea. The color tones of aquamarine are subtle and varied. Their soft luster is a wonderful addition to any natural colored gemstone jewelry collection. 

Aquamarine is the birthstone for March and a gift for the 19th wedding anniversary.
