Another advantage is that no two sapphires are alike, which means sapphire jewellery is unique and one of a kind. That also means that when you buy a piece of sapphire jewellery you’re getting a one of a kind piece, that no one else can create a 100 % identical edition of.

Sapphires fall under the gemstone category corundum – the same mineral as ruby. The only thing that separates sapphires from ruby is the color. Corundum can be equally or higher priced and valued compared to diamonds, as they are both rare, durable and one of a kind.
