Jewelry with sapphire - cool fascination

Its wide range of nuances, from sky blue to almost black dark blue, has fascinated people for centuries. So it is no wonder that the precious stones play a very large role in ancient jewelry. Already in Victorian England, at the same time in France and Germany, the magnificent blue gemstones adorned silver necklaces (925 sterling), pendants, bracelets and earrings. Particularly attractive specimens in a lighter color were cut into a cabochon and then staged as an irresistible eye-catcher and centerpiece of a piece of jewelry. The sapphire harmonizes extremely well with white metals. It is mainly made of high-quality white gold and platinum, from the Edwardian era around 1900, in a wide variety of jewelry. Not exclusively in white metals, but noticeably often. The pieces of jewelry made of yellow gold with sapphire were mostly made before 1900, later pieces have at least one setting for the stones made of white gold. Since blue is not exactly associated with “warmth”, it is more of a cool fascination and not infrequently even a deep revelation that one sees when looking at Sapphire jewelry seizes. As I said, the color stands for eternity and loyalty. You want both. You want to achieve both. Both give strength, courage and hope.

Sapphire ring: dreamlike nuances from dark blue to sky blue

A lively color like blue is often used in jewelry. Here the sapphire is far superior to the aquamarine in terms of the range of its colors. You can't really compare these two gemstones. The very light sky-blue to watery-looking aquamarine is staged very differently than the sapphire due to its often very large stones, in perfect eye-clear quality. Although the lighter sapphires with a tendency towards green-blue and violet-blue are usually clear to the eye, they are significantly smaller. These sapphires are extremely rare and costly in their natural form. Rings with such sapphires require the highest material quality in gold, platinum and accompanying diamonds. They are luxurious pieces of jewelery that are designed for astonishing perfection in detail. Nevertheless, the dark blue sapphire is in the favor of jewelry lovers, especially for antique jewelry, at the top. The dark sapphire should be clearly distinctive. Lighter stones could also be tourmalines or tanzanites. A natural sapphire of intense blue simply cuts a fine figure on the finger.
