Why are sapphires sought-after gemstones?
Sapphire is one of the four precious gemstones that have been part of the crown jewels of many kings and queens. Jewelry set with sapphires displays classic elegance and beauty. Sapphire is sought for its wide range of beautiful colours, durability, and spiritual associations.
The sapphire stone is named for its deep blue colour. However, it is available in almost every colour of the rainbow. The best and most expensive sapphires are found in deep velvety blue to violet-blue hues. Yellow, orange, pink, brown, and green sapphires are also used in jewelry.
Since a sapphire bracelet is worn on the wrist, the durability of the gemstone is an important feature. Measuring 9 on the Moh's hardness scale, sapphires will not crack or chip easily and can withstand wear and tear better than most other precious gemstones.
Sapphires are the birthstone for the Sun sign, Virgo, and the gemstone for September. A sapphire bracelet is a beautiful and memorable birthday gift for someone born in September or December.
Spiritually, sapphire is also called the "wisdom stone" and is said to enhance the clarity of thought, sharpen focus, and promote mental calm. Wearing a sapphire bracelet is a lovely way to remind yourself or a loved one of these wonderful qualities.
Sapphire bracelets come in gorgeous materials and styles
As an item of jewelry, the bracelet is charming in its fluid grace. And one embellished with vibrant blue sapphires has a compelling beauty you cannot ignore. The deep blue, pink or orange sapphire stone shines beautifully alone or when combined with diamonds and other gemstones.
Sapphire bracelets are mesmerising when the setting is in gold, white gold or silver. The most popular bracelet styles are bangle bracelets, charm bracelets, link bracelets, cuff bracelets, and bead bracelets.
Handcrafted gold sapphire bracelets
A gold sapphire bracelet comes in variant hues of gold– yellow, rose or white gold. For pristine elegance, white gold sapphire bracelets are loved the best. If you love a vibrant finish yellow gold or rose gold settings complement the colour of blue and orange sapphires in the bracelet.
A point to consider when shopping for a sapphire bracelet is the purity of gold used to make it. If you want a gold and sapphire bracelet, you can choose 14k or 18k yellow, rose, and white gold. 14k has 58.3% pure gold, while 18k has 75%. So, sapphire bracelets made of 18k gold costs more than those made of 14k gold.
Beautifully handmade silver sapphire bracelets
Sapphires go well with silver as with white gold. The best-quality silver sapphire bracelets are made of 925 sterling silver which is the most accepted hallmarking standard for silver used in jewelry making. The best advantage of a sapphire bracelet made of silver over one made of gold is price; a sapphire bracelet made of silver costs less than one made of gold.
Silver sapphire bracelets can be finished with rhodium plating for a white gold-like finish, or with gold for a yellow or rose gold finish. These are more beautiful and affordable than those made of solid gold and more durable than a silver sapphire bracelet.
Sapphire and gemstone bracelets
Sapphires look most stunning when combined with diamonds, and a sapphire and diamond bracelet makes an impressive statement that draws attention.
Piccolo-style bracelets with facet-cut blue sapphires and colourful gemstone beads in different hues have a colourful and youthful vibe.
Sapphire bracelets settings
The setting used for your sapphire bracelet makes a difference. We have found that the prong setting is the most popular for sapphire bracelets. Other settings used to make these jewelry items are bezel, channel, and claw.
How to style your sapphire bracelet
A bracelet set with sapphires—especially blue sapphires—adds glamour and sophistication to any outfit. Sapphires look eye-catching with black, white, red and pastel-coloured outfits. Pair a beaded sapphire bracelet or a simple one made in silver or white gold with jeans, a business suit, or your favourite casual wear. Save your more ornate sapphire and diamond bracelet, for that special dates, gala nights, and celebrations.

Caring for your sapphire bracelet
As we've already mentioned, sapphires are durable gems, so you can wear your sapphire bracelet daily without worrying about damaging the stones. Still, all fine jewelry needs care, so here are a couple of pointers to care for your sapphire bracelet.
♥ If you wear your sapphire bracelet often, clean it periodically with mild soap and water to remove accumulated dust, dirt, or oil.
♥ If your sapphire bracelet is made of plated sterling silver or yellow, rose, or white gold and designed for occasional wear, wipe it with a soft, damp cloth to remove traces of sweat, makeup, or perfume. Dry it thoroughly before you put it away.
♥ Sapphire bracelets made of silver that is not plated with rhodium or yellow/rose/white gold will tarnish quickly and become black and dull due to oxidation. Such pieces are best stored in anti-tarnish boxes/pouches.
We wish you an enjoyable shopping experience on our website and hope you find the perfect sapphire bracelet that you can happily wear for a long time to come.
