halsketteSapphires are gemstones that are related to rubies, as both are made the same mineral, corundum. However, if you priced real, high quality rubies you will see they cost much more than sapphires. Sapphires are usually thought of as blue, but they can come in several different colors, including yellow and even purple. Sapphires are just like other gemstones when it comes to valuation, and the typical criteria used includes the clarity, size and cut. As you have seen, we are sure, sapphires are used in just about any type of jewelry as any other gemstone. It is possible to see very expensive sapphire jewelry, when it is authentic, even though the lower end sapphires can be found in faux sapphires. Value is subjective, as you know, and for instance red coral, and coral overall, is held in high esteem by some cultures. Red coral was even thought to be much more valuable than the diamond at once point in history. Perhaps part of the reason for it being thought of as a semi-precious gemstone is due to its relative soft quality. One of the spiritual or metaphysical qualities of red coral, for those who have this view, is that wearing it would give the person protection. One of the more popular uses for red coral is as beads for necklaces and bracelets, etc. The Mediterranean Sea is home to the blood coral which is quite valuable and not easy to find. If you are a true coral lover, then perhaps you know about white coral which originates from Japanese waters.
