What Blue Color Sapphire Should I Buy ?
When it comes to choosing a sapphire by color we always tell our customers to choose a color that appeals to them, Blue sapphire account for over 80% of our sales even though sapphire can full under every color you can imagine from canary yellow to hot pinks and even color change sapphires which typically go from a blue to purple with hint of violets depending on the light source here I wanted to share some information on blue sapphires in general.
Cornflower blue platinum custom sapphire ring GIA color B 5/4.
As blues are the colors most people start with I will open up on this color and go down though the main colors you are likely to see in a well stocked store.
Up until about 10 years ago cornflower blue sapphires use to be the most prized and sought after color with the highest market value, since then the royal blue sapphire has now taken the top spot in price as well as the most sold today, we believe with more & more sales being carried out online, the royal blue sapphire both photographs & video’s better than the other hues & because of this the demand increased with this the price for these darker sapphires.
What we have noticed over the last 10 plus years when we meet with our customers face to face and they are able to choose by hand from a selection of sapphires from royal blue down to vivid blue and then further down the colors to cornflower blue stones even though the royal blue sapphire might have being there pick online approximately 8 out of 10 of our customers will choose a cornflower blue sapphire over royal blue than any other blue hue.
