Pink Sapphire Earrings

Although the sapphire is a gem in its own right, it is one of those rare stones that as the color changes, so too does the gem! While pink sapphires are among the rarest, they become increasingly rare as the color deepens to red. Of course, that’s only to a point. When a pink sapphire becomes deep red, it is then a ruby!

While a pink sapphire is truly a lovely stone, it is one of those gems that lends itself well to being worn in settings with other precious gems such as diamonds and blue sapphires. Pink sapphires are also exquisite in a setting with pearls, white, pink or black!

In fact, pink sapphire earrings are often made with the pearl as the center and small pink sapphires framing the pearl, giving them the appearance of a small blossom. The pearl is the center and the sapphires are the round petals. This style is usually fashioned into a huggie earring and not only are they amazingly attractive, they are delicate and feminine as well.

The pink sapphire stands for positive energy in the metaphysical realm. It is a gentle gem that brings love and forgiveness.

A pink sapphire is said to heal old wounds of the heart and the primary energies it holds are healing, love and power. It is the birthstone of Libra, and it is one of the stones of the heart chakra.
