Your Guide to Ethical Sapphire Jewelry

If you want to make a statement of substance, sapphire is your dream come true. From its rich color and history to its spiritual and energetic appeal, it’s no wonder that its rise to popularity began as early as 800BC! In fact, during this time ancient Persian rulers believed that the beautiful blue of the sky was painted by the reflection of sapphire stones. Though notorious for its vivid blue, this mystical gem exists in a variety of colors including pink, green, yellow, purple, orange, black, and even colorless! Regardless of color, the sapphire stone is commonly associated with protection and divine favor; in too many religions and spiritualities this gem is highly symbolic of the heavens and spiritual ascension. They are even thought to increase communication and connection with angels/spirit guides and promote inner peace and soul growth. 

Whether trying to connect with your spirituality or simply looking for the perfect accessory, you honestly cannot go wrong with investing in sapphire jewelry. Not only is it a more colorful and lively option (in both texture and color) but it’s also great in terms of being ethical and primarily conflict-free. 


Ethical Sapphires 

Aside from being a total statement gem, sapphires are generally easily traceable and considered a much more ethical option when compared to diamonds and other jewels. The traceability of sapphire gemstones is largely due to them primarily coming from small independent family mines; this is greatly different from the diamond mining industry which is infamous for its negative environmental impact and the disregarding of human rights abuses and forced labor. 

Environmental and humanitarian awareness is a big deal here at Valley Rose. These core values of ours significantly impact and inspire not only our designs but our business model as a whole! All sapphires found here at Valley Rose are ethically sourced from verified and reputable suppliers from India (white), Africa (teals and blues), or the United States (teals and blues). 

Inspired by the lore and beauty of nature, our sapphire jewelry is both ethical and eye-catching. Continue reading as we unravel our most mesmerizing and jaw-dropping sapphire pieces (your jewelry box will thank you later).
