Sapphire Jewelry: Liberal Colors Challenge Conservative Blues

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.
