Sapphire is a gemstone that is steeped in the history and lore of nearly every religion.
The traditional birthstone for September, Sapphire is a stone of wisdom and royalty. To the ancient and medieval world, it was believed to bring protection, good fortune and spiritual insight. Sapphire was a symbol of power and strength, but also of kindness and wise judgment.
Sapphire is one of the 4 most precious gemstones (alongside diamonds, rubies and emeralds). The reason I use Sapphires in the Aluna, Solitude & Demilune collections is because Sapphire can withstand the high temperature of molten metal and unlike most other gemstones, they won't crack or change colour when heated. Ranked number nine on the Mohs scale (a scale of 1-10 of mineral hardness), Sapphire is a great choice for rings and other jewellery pieces intended for daily wear because of it’s toughness and durability. It is a variety of the mineral corundum (which also includes Ruby), consisting of aluminium oxide, with trace amounts of elements such as iron, titanium, chromium, vanadium and magnesium.
Another reason I love working with Sapphires is because of the stunning range of colours these stones are found in.The only colour you won't find Sapphire in, is red because this is considered Ruby. However, yellow, pink, orange, violet and green - even black and white Sapphires are available and each different coloured stone holds a special healing property.
