This year’s summer jewellery trend is all about the colour pink, from bright vibrant pink sapphires, pinkish rubies, pink tourmalines and peachy pink morganites.  Coloured gemstones are a great way to add some fun, glamour and pizazz to your everyday look.

What colour are Sapphires?

Sapphires are commonly thought to be blue; the most desirable blue sapphires are royal blue. However, sapphires can be any colour, when they are red, they are named rubies. This is because rubies and sapphires are the same mineral group, Corundum.
Rubies are red due to the presence of chromium, and sapphires vary in colour depending on what transition metal is present.

Sapphires are a more durable gemstone than morganite. They are suitable for everyday wear as a ring, where as morganite should be worn with care. Both gemstones are suitable in earrings and pendants.
