Why Sapphire?

As one of the “big four” Gems (diamond, rubies, emeralds and sapphire), Sapphire and Diamond are the only “durable” gems that come in a colorless variety making sapphire the ideal diamond alternative. Oh and did we mention sapphire comes in at a fraction of the cost. 

Diamond vs Sapphire?

Are diamonds or sapphires better?

Which one is best for you? 

What are the differences and why should you care?
