7 Tips For Buying Sapphire Jewellery

Sapphires are one of the most popular gemstones in the world; but with so many options, it can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to purchasing sapphire jewellery. Read on for our top tips to help you find the perfect piece.

1. Know your options

When it comes to buying sapphire jewellery, there are two main types to consider: natural and synthetic. Natural sapphires are mined from the earth like other gemstones, while synthetic ones are created in a lab by replicating the process that occurs naturally when an igneous rock cools down slowly over millions of years. Natural sapphires are generally preferred because they have a unique appearance that can set your piece apart from others, and they have a greater lustre and brilliance than synthetic ones. Every stone at Sapphire Dreams is naturally produced and incredibly unique, giving you sentimental luxury.

2. Consider your budget

Like many other gemstones, sapphires can vary greatly in cost depending on an array of factors including colour and size. Your budget can easily blow out when shopping for sapphire jewellery, so it’s important to establish what you’re willing to spend before you begin browsing. Speaking to an experienced jeweller can give you an indiciation of price, as they can make recommendations based on your needs and budget.

3. Determine your personal preferences

Before shopping for sapphire jewellery, it’s important that you know what your personal preferences are. If you like bigger pieces, look for larger stones. If you prefer minimalist designs, look for smaller ones with simple settings. If you want something that stands out from other pieces in your collection, go with something unique like a multi-colour stone or an unusual setting, found in our Parti Sapphires and Multi Colour Collection.

4. Choose your colour and cut

Sapphires come in different colours, including blue, green, yellow, teal and Parti. To make sure you're getting the perfect piece, it's important to know what colour you want before you start shopping around for sapphire jewellery. The cut of your sapphire can also have a huge impact on its appearance. The stone should be cut so that it reflects light evenly around its surface, rather than having parts of it darker than others—this will give you a beautiful sparkle when light hits it.

5. Look for quality

Sapphire is one of the most beautiful gemstones in the world, and it’s also one of the rarest. You’ll want your sapphire jewellery to be with you for a long time, so it’s important to ensure your piece is crafted to the highest quality. Keep an eye out for sapphires that are not treated with heat or chemicals - opt for natural Australian sapphires where possible.  

6. Buy from a reputable seller

Buying sapphire jewellery in Australia from a reputable jeweller can ensure that your stone is not only authentic, but that your piece is produced to the highest standard. For your peace of mind, choose a seller that offers lifetime warranty and service, like Sapphire Dreams, on sapphire jewellery, so your piece will look stunning for many years to come. 

7. Care for your sapphire jewellery

Finally, remember that sapphires are an investment—you'll want to take good care of your new piece so that it lasts a lifetime (or longer). There are some simple things that you can do to help keep your sapphire jewellery looking its best. Where possible, remove your sapphire jewellery before going swimming or doing any other activity that will make you sweat, and store your pieces in a clean, dry place. Where possible, choose a reputable jeweller, such as Sapphire Dreams, that offers free yearly inspection on your item to ensure that your sapphire jewellery stays in top condition.
