Flirty pink sapphires are versatile gemstones that range from bubble gum pink to a light demure blush. Pink sapphires have a rich history—engagement rings made out of the stone have been used since Ancient Rome and are known to intensify passion and truthfulness in their wearers.
Pink sapphires hold various meanings to cultures worldwide, including peace between lovers, wisdom during hardship, intense passion and protection from harm. During medieval times, people used sapphires to test one's truthfulness: if the color of the sapphire remained strong, its wearer was a sincere person.
How can I tell if a pink sapphire is real?
The easiest way to tell the difference between a natural pink sapphire and a synthetic one is to assess the stone's quality. A natural pink sapphire will typically have some flaws. At the same time, a synthetic one will be perfect since it was created in a controlled environment. Another way to tell if a pink sapphire is natural is to look at the stone's cut. Most natural sapphires are cut using a mixed cut instead of specific shapes. Purchasing your gemstones from a reputable retailer, like us, will provide peace of mind that your pink sapphire stones are 100% authentic.
Are pink sapphires durable?
