GIA Report

When you invest in a sapphire engagement ring, it should include a gemology report. This document represents the highest standard of consistency, integrity, and reliability. It is the credential of the sapphire’s quality and authenticity.

Colour 

Sapphire stones are available in a variety of colours, including yellow, violet, pink, blue and purple. These colours are also available with different tones, levels of saturation and hues. As mentioned above, the more expensive stone will have a very strong hue and level of saturation, with little to no other coloiring. This means that the cheaper stone will be a much lighter colour of blue than the expensive stone.

Just like gemstones, sapphires are graded on their tone, hue, and saturation. The hue is the main colour of the stone, while the tone shows the brightness or darkness of the stone. The saturation determines the strength of the colour. Be sure to keep this in mind, when you are shopping for a sapphire. 

Clarity 

It is important to note that the value of the sapphire is note based on its clarity, like a diamond. However, the clarity of the sapphire is very important, when looking at pastel shades and lighter colours.
