What makes a sapphire stone desirable?
Sapphire is said to be the wisdom stone, stimulating concentration, enhancing creativity and promoting purity and depth of thought. It is believed to focus and calm the mind as well as remove unwanted thoughts, depression and mental tension. Blue sapphires are the birthstone for September and the zodiac sign, Virgo.
Natural sapphires (heated or unheated) come in a range of colours, from clear white to pale yellow, pink and blue, making them suitable for every kind of setting, skin tone, dress, and occasion. We have some beautiful natural unheated sapphire earrings that you will love!
The best colour for sapphire earrings
Sapphires are popularly associated with a vibrant and velvety blue to an electrifying violet-blue colour. In fact, when we hear the word "sapphire", the colour that comes to mind is blue. Today, sapphire earrings may be set with any fancy-coloured sapphire, pink, orange or clear white, their novelty has made them a hit, especially among younger women.
However, blue sapphire earrings are the most sought-after accessories for many reasons, mainly because they are a sign of elegance and sophistication and go well with all outfits for any occasion. While they look resplendent in both white gold and yellow gold settings, modern trends favour blue sapphire earrings in white gold.
Sapphire earrings are durable and versatile style accessories
One of the most significant advantages of sapphire earrings is durability. Prized for their hardness, sapphires are gorgeous gemstones measuring 9 on the Moh’s hardness scale, making them able to withstand considerable wear and tear. Since they have no cleavage, sapphire stones do not break or chip easily. Because of these qualities, sapphire earrings are considerably low-maintenance and can be cleaned with mild soap and water at home.
Sapphire earring designs
Precious sapphire stones are best set in gold or precious metals. You can choose any style of sapphire gold earrings in a myriad of beautiful hues. Rose gold and white gold sapphire earrings are a treat.
Sapphire stud earrings
Studs come in round, oval, and square/rectangle shapes. Round sapphire studs are the most traditional and popular shape for stud earrings, while oval sapphires too are chosen for their more prominent appearance.
Sapphire studs could be set in yellow, rose, or white gold and be in a solitaire, three-stone, or multi-stone arrangement. White gold earrings set with square/rectangular cut sapphires have a more modern vibe and are especially favoured by those looking for unique shapes in their earrings.
Halo studs are one of the most popular designs for sapphire and diamond earrings and simply stunning in white gold. This design features a central sapphire within a circle of small pavé-set diamonds.
Sapphire drop earrings
Drop earrings extend to hang below the earlobe. Sapphire drop earrings in small and medium sizes can be worn for casual occasions, while larger, more ornately designed sapphire drop earrings with white diamonds on white gold look glamorous and make a dramatic statement for formal dress-ups.
Sapphire hoop earrings
Hoops paved with sparkling blue sapphires look trendy and stunning. Small sapphire huggie-hoop earrings that lie close to your earlobe make perfect accessories for work or play. If you want to make a statement, go for square, hexagonal hoops in medium to large sizes—depending on the design, these are the ultimate show-stoppers.

Coloured natural sapphire earring styles
While earrings set with sapphires in yellow, rose, or white gold look impressive, these gemstones are raised to the next level and certainly pack a punch when combined with diamonds.
Another exciting variation that offers a unique and exciting look is earrings set with a combination of different coloured sapphires. Blue sapphire earrings embellished with pearls also exude a classic charm and timeless sweetness that will never go out of style.
Price of blue sapphire earrings
As with all gemstone jewellery, the price of blue sapphire earrings depends on the colour grading and cut, clarity and carat weight—of the gems. The bigger the sapphires in the earrings, the purer their colour, the greater the clarity, and the fewer the inclusions in them, the more costly they become.
The price also depends on the quality of the gold used to make the earrings. The more gold used to make the earrings, the greater their cost. A pair of blue sapphire earrings made in 14-karat white gold would be less than one made in 18-karat or 22-karat white gold.
Choose your blue sapphire earrings with care
Here are some essential tips on how to choose sapphire earrings:
♦ Breathe on the sapphires. Genuine sapphires will defog almost immediately.
♦ Check for imperfections such as air bubbles and inclusions in the sapphire: the clearer the gems, the higher their quality.
♦ Be sure to purchase your sapphire earrings from a trusted brand/jewellery retailer whose products are certified for the quality and grade of the metal and gemstones used. Check their returns and refunds policy too.
