Sapphires in Every Color | September Birthstone

Sapphires in Every Color

When you think “sapphire”, a very specific shade comes to mind. But blue is just the beginning for this gem of many shades. Any color—and there are a lot—of the crystalline form of aluminum oxide known as corundum is actually a sapphire.

Are Red Sapphires Rubies?

Yes! This timeless gem is actually sapphire in a red dress, getting its red hue from the presence of chromium in the molecular mix. Despite the sibling rivalry, being in this family has its benefits. Rubies have the same durability as all sapphires; 9 on the Mohs scale, second hardest to diamonds. You can also judge a stone’s quality based on the 4Cs of diamonds.

Pink Sapphires

Where the official delineation between pink sapphires and rubies lies was only recently defined. But one thing that’s certain is this gem’s feminine appeal. Pink sapphires come in every shade from magenta to blush. They make an amazing gift but also consider how personal an engagement ring with a pink stone would be for fans of the shade.
