What is a Pink sapphire?

Pink sapphire is extremely sought-after, they belong to the corundum mineral family that contains traces of iron, titanium, magnesium, copper and chromium that help determine its colour. They can range in colour from pale pink to vivid magenta. Pink sapphires were considered rare prior to the 1990s when the Madagascar mines were discovered. The quality and quantity of pink sapphires from Madagascar make these gemstones more widely available and affordable. Beyond Madagascar, pink sapphires are often found in Sri Lanka, Myanmar and the mines of East Africa. Many cultures and people believe pink sapphires symbolise trust, loyalty, and sincerity. They are also believed to carry good fortune and intense love.  Their vibrant colour has become quite popular for engagement rings and can be cut or designed in any shape and still look stunning.

which hue of pink sapphire to choose?

When selecting a pink sapphire, it’s essential to consider both personal preferences and current trends. The most popular hues often fluctuate, but soft, pastel pinks have been a consistent favourite due to their romantic and timeless appeal. They exude subtlety and elegance, making them a frequent choice for engagement rings and fine jewellery. On the other hand, deeper, more vivid pinks are gaining popularity for those seeking a bolder, confident look. Lighter pink sapphires tend to be more readily available, while the deeper, more intense shades are rarer and prized for their unique and vibrant character.
