Spring Romance - The Allure of Beautiful Pink and Purple Sapphires

Spring Romance - The Allure of Beautiful Pink and Purple Sapphires

With spring comes a burst of color that inspires and captivates us. Among the dazzling shades that this season offers, pink and purple stand out for their delicate beauty and romantic appeal.

At EmilyGill.ca, we are proud to showcase a remarkable selection of sapphires that range from sweet pink to regal purple. From exquisite engagement rings to beautiful statement pieces, our collection captures the spirit of spring in all its glory.


The Sensuality of Purple and Pink

The sensuality of purple and pink can be seen in the lush petals of a rose, the ethereal beauty of a lavender blossom, or the radiant glow of a sunset. In fashion, these colors have often been associated with femininity and grace. From bold statement pieces to subtle pastel hues, any outfit can become a source of charm and romance when these colors are included.

The scent of purple and pink flowers is also known to be calming and soothing, creating an atmosphere of relaxation. In nature, the reflection of light on the petals makes these colors glow with a magical aura. Whether you choose to admire them in a garden or in a jewelry shop, the beauty of these colors is undeniable.

It's spring, a season we associate with all things bright and beautiful. Like fresh purple flowers with an amazing aroma, such as lavender and hyacinth. We also start to see breathtaking sunsets that paint the sky in shades of magenta and violet. This year the northern lights have lit our skies with unusually beautiful shades of purple and pink.

Purple is a color of profound significance. With its rich history and diverse cultural symbolism, it has been a source of fascination for centuries.  We also see purple as a symbol of royalty and luxury, as it was once a rare and expensive dye reserved for the elite.

In our contemporary culture, purple evokes feelings of grace, creativity, and spirituality. With its calming and uplifting energy, it is a color of inner peace and mystical beauty. It's no wonder when some people meditate they claim to see the power of purple and associate it with peace. 

When you wear purple sapphire jewelry, you carry with you the essence of spring's magic and the allure of the divine.

Pink is the color of love and tenderness. In nature, it symbolizes innocence and youthfulness - a perfect expression to match the beauty and freshness that spring brings.

We know pink as an ideal hue for romantic occasions like weddings or anniversaries. It also speaks to us of beauty, softness, and femininity.

A pink sapphire ring is a timeless symbol of romance that will add grace and elegance to any jewelry collection.

Every spring, we are reminded of the allure and power of pink and purple. Whether you are looking for the perfect engagement ring or a unique statement piece, we invite you to explore our selection of bright to pale pink and purple sapphires.

 So Where Does the Color Come From? - The Science of Color in Sapphires

Sapphires are a type of corundum mineral that get their color from different chemical impurities in the crystal's structure.

Pink sapphires are tinted with a trace of chromium or iron, while purple sapphires contain traces of titanium or iron. The intensity of the color depends on the amount and type of impurities present, as well as the crystal's crystallographic orientation.

At EmilyGill.ca, we source our sapphires from reputable miners and gemstone cutters who comply with ethical and environmental standards. We believe in promoting transparency and accountability in the gemstone industry, and we are committed to providing our customers with nothing but the finest quality gemstones.


The Art of Opalescence

One of the fascinating features of sapphires is their opalescence, which is a phenomenon that occurs when light interacts with inclusions inside the crystal. 

Opalescent sapphires display a milky, hazy effect that resembles the beauty of a gentle mist. This effect is caused by tiny needle-like inclusions that scatter the light in different directions, creating a diffused and soft appearance. 

The opalescence in sapphires can vary from subtle to intense, and it can affect the value and beauty of the stone.

A special opalescent deal for you

To launch the very special opalescent sapphire collection from one of my oldest suppliers of natural earth mined sapphires, we are offering a sweet deal on anything in the www.sorbetsapphire.com collection - including pink and purple opalescent sapphires.

Experience the Magic - Another Exceptional Moyo Sapphire Ring

You may have seen tanzanite, a gem named after the geographical location where it is primarily mined in Tanzania, but did you know many purple sapphires also are found in mines across Tanzania, and Kenya. Late last summer, we picked out this incredibly stunning sapphire to include in our collection for spring...take a look!

Our Purple Sky Moyo Sapphire Ring is a stunning example of the captivating beauty of sapphires. This exceptional ring features a 2.94 carat sapphire with a dreamy purple hue that evokes the tranquility of a summer sunset. The sapphire is ethically sourced from artisanal female miners in the Umba Valley, Tanzania, who work with dedication and skill to extract these rare and precious gems.


The ring's design is a perfect balance between simplicity and sophistication. The sapphire is set in a bezel that highlights its natural beauty without overpowering it, while the knife-edge band adds a touch of modern elegance. The step-cut baguette lab diamonds complement the sapphire's color and enhance its brilliance, creating a sense of harmony and balance in the design.
