Blue sapphires

At Metal Urges we love working with natural and untreated blue sapphire, in fact it’s our specialty. Our blue sapphire colour range is extensive, filled with vivid and saturated hues. This rare and valuable gem is perfect for engagement, eternity or wedding rings, necklace pendants or earrings.

Sapphires belong to the corundum aluminium oxide mineral group. Pure corundum is colourless, although majority of corundum contains chemical impurities called trace elements. These elements are responsible for the range of different colours sapphires come in, sapphires become blue thanks to a combination of iron and titanium trace elements.

Natural and untreated blue sapphire is even scarcer now than before due to the current marketplace and mining conditions. If sapphire deposits are situated in areas that are too inaccessible, isolated, politically unstable, or environmentally extreme they will not be mined. The main mining areas for blue sapphire are Sri Lanka, Cambodia, India, Madagascar, Australia, Thailand and the US. Majority of the time characteristics of an individual blue sapphire can be identified and traced back to its country of origin.

At Metal Urges, Chris our head designer personally sources and selects every blue sapphire we work with. This means Chris travels far and wide to ethically source these beautiful blue sapphires. Metal Urges’ mission whilst sourcing stones is to leave the community and those surrounding a little better than they were. We always ensure to work with the people within these communities, especially those not as fortunate and with fewer opportunities than we have. Donations to schools and education are priority to us, as well as contributing to the local economy.

The blue sapphire symbolises truth, sincerity, faithfulness and nobility and has come to represent romance and royalty. Blue sapphires have had many different purposes and meanings throughout the ages, from the Ancient Greeks believing they protected the wearer from harm, to clergymen wearing them to represent Heaven. Through history, art and consumer awareness, sapphire has come to be mostly associated with the colour blue.
