Natural Sapphire Earrings

Sapphires are a variety of corundum, the same mineral which comprises rubies. Sapphires are usually blue but may be yellow, purple, orange or green. The color variations come from elements like iron, titanium, chromium, copper and magnesium, in trace amounts.

Natural sapphires are prized for their rarity and hardness. Like many other colored gemstones, sapphires can be fabricated in a lab. However, jewelers and many buyers tend to prefer natural sapphires for their rarity and investment value. Lab-created sapphires may be color treated or otherwise changed, while natural sapphires retain their natural color. That being said, natural sapphire jewelry fetches a higher price as the gems are rare.

Natural sapphires occur in places like Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and even here in the United States. Prized for hardness and hue, many varieties of jewelry are made with sapphires. Natural sapphire necklaces, earrings, and rings especially top the market.

Sapphires are used for many kinds of jewelry. One of the most classic and iconic ways to use sapphires are within earrings. Earrings can be worn for a lifetime and are a perfect gift for any occasion.
