If you’re searching for the perfect engagement ring, rich in colour then the Australian Sapphire might just be the perfect fit! Mined in Australia for over 100 years, sapphires come in an array of alluring colours including yellow, pink, black and classic deep blue. Australian Sapphires can also come in colour change or mixed colours of blues, greens and yellows, banded together to create an exceptionally unique stone and heirloom to be treasured. These sapphires are referred to as parti, rainbow or bi-coloured.
There are so many reasons why we love Australian Sapphires; their colour, beauty, individuality, but above all else, they can make the perfect engagement ring.
Like all sapphires, Australian Sapphires have a hardness rating of 9 on the Moh scale making them the second hardest natural substance next to a diamond. This makes them extremely durable and therefore perfect for engagement rings as well as everyday jewellery.
If you are after a striking coloured stone that makes an impact in both size and colour then an Australian Sapphire is a great option. Australian Sapphires do not carry the hefty dollar weight of a diamond which means you can scale up in size to create something dramatic and eye-catching. Available in not only a variety of colours but also shapes and sizes, with an affordable price tag, the Australian Sapphire is a unique and beautiful stone to create jewellery with.
