Sapphire Gemstones

The September Birth Stone, Sapphires

  Page   1   2        


The sapphire along with ruby is surely one of the most sought after gemstone. Kings and queens of yesteryears regarded these gems as a show of wealth, power and status. One very important thing about sapphire gems is their hardness. When compared to the hardest stone used in conventional jewelry, namely diamonds, sapphires measure up a very close second. The hardness of gems is measured on the Mohs scale and a sapphire gem stone rates a 9. There is only one stone that has a better rating and that is diamonds. It is this hardness that makes sapphire gem stone jewelry very durable and sturdy.

Sapphire gem stones are found in a few colors but, the most popular are the blue sapphires. These gems can be found in a bright blue like those mined in Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Madagascar sapphires are also found in good blue shades. The most commonly used blue sapphire gems are mined in Australia and Thailand. If you had to value a sapphire based on it's grade, the origin of the gem stone would also influence the price of the gem. Moving from the highest priced ceylon blue sapphires you would then have the Madagascar blue sapphires. Thailand and Australian blue sapphires come next. The importance given to gemstone origin for blue sapphires is so high that, the depleted Sri Lankan mines yielding patchy and streaky blue sapphires are still highly preferred.

Another interesting color in which sapphires are found is white. While some sapphires are found in a colorless state (white), pale blue sapphires are also heated to high temperatures to produce white sapphire gemstones. The demand for white sapphire stones is somehow restricted to the smaller sizes like 3mm and smaller. These small white sapphire gemstones are used as diamond substitutes in gold and sterling silver jewelry. After all, the hardness of these sapphires would come very close to that of natural diamonds.

While blue sapphires are worn by ladies and men, there is one color of sapphire gems that is almost always restricted to ladies jewelry. This is the pink sapphire, a gem stone that looks simply stunning. Sapphires have better glitter and lustre as compared to pink tourmaline or morganite, two other pink gemstones. However, pink sapphires with good clarity and color can be quite expensive. It is also much harder to find larger sizes of pink sapphire as compared to blue sapphire. In general try to stay within the 1 carat range when choosing pink sapphire gemstones. You will then get a gem that looks good and has impressive color saturation and clarity too.

Green sapphires did make a splash in the gemstone world about 5 to 6 years ago but, the popularity of this gemstone has remained low and stagnant. While there is no technical reason for the lower demand for green sapphire gemstones, it is probably related to the fact that many options are available when it comes to green gems.

Star sapphire is an interesting type of sapphire. Specific natural inclusions in a sapphire cause a star effect on the surface when light strikes the stone. A good star sapphire should have a bright and sharp star. Natural star sapphires also show one important characteristic, the star moves with the source of light that shines on it. One important thing that you should know is that most good star sapphires have been mined out. Gemological experts have now come up with a special process to treat natural sapphires. This process creates a star effect on the gemstone, the star is sharp and moves with the source of light. These star sapphires are called diffused star sapphires, important thing being that they are made from natural sapphires. If you had to get a moderately priced natural star sapphire today, you would seem little more than a blob of light than any type of star. On the other hand, diffused star sapphires show an impressive star effect and are very affordable.

Wearing a birth stone is supposed to bring good luck, sapphires are the birthstone for the month of September. You can ofcourse choose a sapphire of any color to represent your birthstone. Directstones provides all types, shapes and sizes of sapphires. You can also choose a grade for your sapphire gem. Remember that the price of sapphire stones depends on their clarity, origin and size too. A larger sapphire would be priced higher per carat as compared to a smaller one. This would be true even if both sapphires were of the same grade. You can email us at sales@kaisilver.com for your requirements of sapphires or any other gem stone. We welcome even single piece orders so do let us know what you require.

Who Is Kaisilver?

With a spectacular online track record that extends over 8 years, Kaisilver is today widely accepted as the global leader in online custom jewelry. A team of over 3,500 skilled craftsmen and gemstone cutters works on all custom jewelry orders received by us. Seven top notch designers drawn from five nations ensure that buyer requirements are well understood no matter which part of the globe they come from. This wide expertise allows us to produce high end jewelry of all types, modern, traditional, historic and even antique. The gemstones used in our jewelry are not leftovers, they are not drawn from a fixed inventory. We have instead developed and built a close network with the world's largest sources for gemstone mining and manufacturing. This gives us priority access to over 200 million carats of gems. In the majority of cases, fresh batches of gems are first made available to us. We then pick the cream of the lot and the remaining gems are returned to the gem manufacturer, that is the produce that then hits local markets in various countries.

So why then have many people not heard of Kaisilver. The reason is simple and straight forward. At Kaisilver we do not believe in spending big bills on advertising and publicity gimmicks. Though we do have fashion models and sportsmen in our customer list, we do not use them as sponsors for our custom jewelry. We realize that expensive showrooms and commission driven sales staff all add up on the price tag. The final buyer needs to bear all these overheads and this reduces the material value that the buyer derives for the price paid. We have as a policy, kept away from hiring sales staff. All customer service requirements are made by experts in gems and jewelry. We use customer satisfaction levels as a bench mark to measure staff capability and capacity. So it is customer satisfaction that keeps us in business and ensures a high growth rate.

How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to sales@kaisilver.com provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
