Sapphire is a gemstone favorite at Anpé Atelier, as it’s the gemstone we work with the most.
It makes us incredibly happy to see that colors truly have found their way back to the jewellery scene – at Anpé Atelier we love colorful jewellery as it’s the essence of our brand. For the same reason sapphires are also our favorites gemstones to work with.
Sapphires come in a wide range of colors – from royal blue sapphire to vivid yellow and hot pink sapphires and over to more pastel hues and even white. Sapphire jewellery thereby truly meets all the colorful jewellery dreams you may have. Sapphires also reach a hardness of 9 on the Mohs Scale, meaning it is a very hard gemstone and has a great resistance to scratching and chipping. Because of this it is recommended for everyday wear.
Another advantage is that no two sapphires are alike, which means sapphire jewellery is unique and one of a kind. So, 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.

Whether you believe in the more spiritual aspects of the sapphires is surely up to you – but there’s no doubt that birthstones are increasing in popularity and that there’s something both meaningful and personal in using birthstones in your fine jewellery.
Sapphires are found in a handful of locations around the world, and our sapphires mainly come from Madagascar and Sri Lanka. Madagascar is a relatively new area for mining, but despite that, Madagascar has grown to become one of the leading sources in the world for colorful sapphires.
There are different and very special varities of sapphire, for example bi-color sapphire, color changing sapphire, padparadscha sapphire and star sapphire.
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. And it’s the second hardest gemstone in the world – only diamonds are harder.
