If blues are the traditional conservatives of the sapphire family, the unabashedly exuberant fancy colors are undoubtedly the rambunctious liberals. And, among jewelry designers this year, there’s a noticeable move toward the left. Pinks and yellows are the hands-down favorites, offering a precious alternative to meet fashion’s demand for these pretty hues. Don’t be surprised, however, to see more sapphires in a rainbow of colors like green and orange. From mass-market suppliers to high-end designers, the variety of sapphire colors is teaching the industry that you can indulge in sapphire jewelry whether you’re a strict conservative or a vibrant progressive.
