Birthstone for September: Sapphire

Birthstone for September: Sapphire

Sapphires are some of the most valued gemstones on the planet, and one of Ragnar's personal favourites. Our Design Studio probably has more large sapphires in stock than any other jeweller in Vancouver.


Sapphires come in almost every colour of the rainbow (except red) and every shade in between. The size, intensity and saturation of colour in each gem is different, and each of those variables affects the price - sometimes dramatically!


Classic "blue" is the most well known and popular; in the case of the very rare "Kashmir blue" it can be extremely valuable.
Natural Sapphires are known as the gem of sincerity, love, happiness, truth and fidelity, which is why it is often chosen for engagement ring designs. They are also reputed to promote peace, wisdom, prosperity, protection and joy.


If you're concerned about durability, we have good news for you!
Sapphires are strong enough to be worn daily, as they are the second hardest mineral in the world. They are the second hardest natural gemstone next to diamond! (Within the Mohs scale, which goes from 1 to 10, a diamond is hardness of 10, sapphire is at hardness 9).
