Purple sapphires are a beauty in their own right.
In the local jewellery scene, both online and in real life, we don’t see purple sapphires featured often enough. But it is a beautiful colour to wear. The jewellery piece should be designed and styled to fit the owner and the of course, the gemstone.
Our client came through with a request for green and purple with wholly natural, unheated gemstones, but “I don’t want it to look too loud”. It was a design task that needed some planning.
Set in a classic style, with a combination of colours that are not only bold but in fact, complement each other. A lot of thought has gone into the design of this pair of earrings, to create that effortlessly simple yet classy look.
Featured in this pair of earrings is a pair of unheated purple sapphire, with green tsavorites and diamonds.
Against a backdrop of glistening diamonds, the rich hues of the tsavorite with the cool purples of the sapphires make for a pretty pair. Bold, yet so easily wearable.
Notes about Purple Sapphires:
Until we actually set our minds to sourcing for a pair of unheated purple sapphires, one would never know the difficulty in finding such a pair. Firstly, as most would know, Sapphires are more often seen in blue, red, pink or yellow. Purple sapphires are in fact, not as common. In addition, sourcing for an unheated, matching pair required a fair bit of time and luck.
Unheated purple sapphires are a beauty in their own right because a vast majority of purple sapphires available in the jewellery market is heated. Heating is done to improve colour saturation of a gemstone. That being said, purple is a saturated hue that is not easy to come by. So, you can imagine the delight in stumbling upon this pair of unheated purple sapphires.
