Gemstones of all types have been valuable for centuries due to their beauty and rarity. The gorgeous colors and eye-catching sparkle coupled with the fact that gemstones are limited in quantity makes them a precious commodity. These days, gemstones are frequently treated to bring out the color and enhance the clarity of the gemstone. However, consumers are beginning to recognize the natural beauty of uncut gemstones, and uncut sapphire is becoming increasingly popular to wear in rings, necklaces, pendants, earrings, and many other types of jewelry.
Uncut sapphire comes to you directly from the ground in its natural state. This rough, natural, straight-from-the-ground look makes for beautiful jewelry for someone with more of a Bohemian or free-spirited style. Polished, perfectly cut gemstones are gorgeous, but some might feel like this high-end style doesn’t match their personal, everyday style and they feel out of place wearing their valuable sapphire jewelry except on special occasions. The uncut sapphire makes for a beautiful and valuable jewelry piece that fits more into an everyday, casual style while still holding the significance and value of a fancy, polished piece.
When you select your uncut sapphire piece, it is important to keep in mind what type of jewelry you plan to use it in. Each uncut sapphire will be unique in shape and size and you’ll want to take special care to choose a gemstone that fits your vision for you jewelry piece. If you plan to do a piece like earrings or a ring with more than one stone, you’ll want to find similar sized and shaped gemstones to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your piece.
