Sapphire - September's Birthstone

Did you know that one of September's birthstones is Sapphire?

Sapphires come in a sparkling range of colors and finishes, encompassing nearly every color of the rainbow. These exquisite gemstones can also exhibit more than one color within them, which are known as "Parti Sapphires." With their stunning variety, sapphires have long been associated with royalty and have been highly prized throughout history. Let's explore the allure and durability of sapphires, as well as their origins and why they are a popular choice for custom jewellery.


What makes sapphires so special?

Sapphires are a type of corundum, a mineral composed of aluminum oxide. They are renowned for their hardness, ranking 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, just below diamonds. This exceptional hardness makes sapphires highly durable and resistant to scratches, making them perfect for everyday wear. Whether you're wearing a sapphire engagement ring or a pair of sapphire earrings, you can be confident that your jewellery will maintain its beauty over time.


Where are sapphires found?

Sapphires are mainly mined in Australia, southern Asia, eastern Africa, and the islands of Sri Lanka. At Custom Jewellery Co, we feature many Australian Sapphire designs, showcasing the unique beauty of these gemstones. Australian sapphires are known for their vibrant blue hues, ranging from deep navy to light sky blue. They are highly sought after for their exceptional color and clarity.
