Quick Facts about Pink Sapphire

The word “Sapphire” is derived from the Latin word “sapphirus.” It has been one of the most precious gems, along with many other valuable ones. Getting a hand on one of the sapphires is considered luck even in the modern days.

You can find the sapphire gem in multiple colors, and one of the most demanded and loved types is the pink sapphire. This precious stone is known for representing love and affection.

This gemstone is mostly contrasted with a flower called ‘lotus’ that symbolizes perception, clarity, and charms. If observing from modern history, this elegant gemstone is usually regarded as fascination and modest refinement.

Another one of the interesting facts about the pink sapphire is that it is one of the rarest colors found in sapphires. The more chromium that is present in a precious corundum stone, the more profound its pink tone. Purely transparent pink sapphire with no slight incorporation is no doubt cherished by many.

Though these exceptional cases, sapphires are incredibly long-lasting. It would be best if you always managed them tenderly and with great care. Unveiling these rare pink sapphires to immediate, extreme heat and straight sunbeam can destroy their tone and diamond layout for a long time. The bigger a sapphire is, the more expensive and luxurious it becomes. Compared to the smaller pink sapphires, huge ones can be too costly and rarely available.

The Pink Sapphire as a Mineral

Sapphires are also formed in numerous tints, like yellow, green, and blue, and every assortment gets its tone from various minor components. It is a variation of mineral corundum that consists of aluminum oxide with a slight amount of other elements, e.g., magnesium, chromium, iron, vanadium, and titanium.

Cultural Significance of the Pink Sapphire

The pink-colored sapphire is a uniqueness that was initially found only in Thailand and was later mined in 22 other countries where they are excavated with great effort. In Thailand, sapphire drawing and gem cutting expertise is a tradition passed on to several generations.

Pink Sapphire Jewelry Trends

These pink Sapphire stones are often designed on jewelry accessories, frequently worn by celebrities. We even saw royalty like Queen Elizabeth wearing a pink sapphire floral design brooch on her Christmas day speech in 2013. There is a variety of jewelry items available online and in physical stores adorned by stunning pink sapphires. The 1-carat pink sapphire can be the ideal option for cost-effective yet decent-sized gems for jewelry items.

We hope this guide helped you know to get the right information about the pink sapphire and decided if they are the perfect option for you to choose.
