Although sapphires can be found in almost any colour, blue is the colour normally associated with it. Cornflower blue is the standard that sapphires are measured against. A light and watery blue colour or dark, almost black sapphire is not at all desirable. The brilliance of a stone can be almost as important as its actual hue. Therefore the next most important factor affecting worth is clarity. A stone, which is relatively free of inclusions, will transmit more light, and therefore appear more brilliant. Clear transparent sapphires with no visible flaws are the most sought after.
The colour of the sapphires that we select varies between bright blue through royal blue and all are expertly cut and calibrated to fit into the centre of our Claddagh Diamond Rings.
