A Natural Sapphire Pendant is a symbol of commitment, fidelity and following the thread of your own destiny. It is a gemstone that is revered by royalty throughout the centuries.
Sapphire is one of the Big Three gemstones–those that are considered most valuable in jewelry–and a popular choice for engagement rings and special occasion necklaces. It is a durable gemstone that also represents devotion and loyalty. This makes it the gem of royalty’s choice. The color of blue sapphire is the most famous, but this natural gemstone comes in many colors and qualities. Sapphires come from the mineral corundum. It contains trace elements, which determine color. Iron and titanium are two of the trace elements that give blue sapphires their lustrous beauty. When these elements with chromium are replaced, sapphire is transformed into ruby.
Color is the main factor that determines a sapphire’s value. The best blue sapphires will be velvety, with vivid saturation in a medium-dark to medium-dark color. They should be free from flaws which diminish their beauty. This includes cloudiness and bluish castings. Large blue sapphires with these characteristics are rare and expensive.
It’s possible to find sapphires in colors other than red, but they are not as common. Fancy sapphires are known as fancy corundum and can be found in a range of colors, including yellows, oranges, pinks, purples, and greens. Fancy sapphires come in larger sizes than blue sapphires. However, they are usually more expensive.
Sapphires that show different bodycolors when viewed from different directions are called pleochroism. In a sapphire, this means that it shows greenish blue and violetish blue when viewed from the sides and a deep blue when viewed face-up. This pleochroism enhances the value of sapphires, especially when they are well-centered and easily visible at arms length.
Another desirable trait is a star in a sapphire. This phenomenon occurs when a stone has inclusions of rutile and hematite that reflect light into a star shape. It can be found in any color of sapphire, although black star corundum is the rarest. The star should be distinct and symmetrical. The size and type of inclusions in a sapphire can affect the quality of the stone. Also, the cutter’s ability to position them so that the star is visible will also influence the quality.
The clarity of sapphires is one of the most impressive features. Sapphires have a unique quality in that their appearance is affected by the inclusions. Gemologists determine the sapphire’s grade of clarity by evaluating their visibility and nature. This is usually classified as Type 1 (eye clean), Type 2 or type 3. The lower the number of inclusions, the higher the clarity.

Before being cut into jewelry, natural sapphires are subjected to several treatments that improve their color and clarity. Heat treatment is another method used to permanently enhance the color. It’s a natural, safe process. Not all sapphires have been heat-treated, and many others have been enhanced using other methods.
When choosing a sapphire, it is important to choose a naturally untreated specimen. This will ensure that the sapphire was not subjected harmful chemical treatments which could have altered its clarity or color. At With Clarity, we only carry high-quality sapphires that have been carefully selected and hand-picked to be as pure and genuine as possible.
When selecting a sapphire, it is also important to consider the cut and polish. Poorly cut sapphires can lose their brilliance because they have a dull, opaque appearance.

We offer sapphires with various cuts, including princess, round and marquise.
When choosing a blue-sapphire necklace, the carat weight is a key factor to consider. It determines the overall size and length of the piece. A larger carat weight sapphire will appear bigger in scale and provide a more dramatic appearance than a smaller carat weight gem.
