Sapphire is the most precious and valuable blue gemstone. It is a very desirable gemstone due to its excellent color, hardness, durability, and luster. In gem trade, sapphire without any color prefix refers to the blue variety of the mineral corundum. However, the term Sapphire encompasses all other gem varieties and colors of Corundum as well, excluding Ruby, the red variety of Corundum, which has its own name since antiquity.
Sapphire gemstones are a lovely gift for any occasion. Shop sapphire for birthdays, anniversaries or holidays. You can gift someone, or even gift yourself.
September’s birthstone has come a long way since the days when any and every blue stone was called a sapphire. Though its fame is shared with its “Big Three” counterparts ruby and emerald, sapphire has enjoyed a long run as one of the world’s most beloved gemstones, earning itself a place of honor in crown jewels, royal accessories, museums, and even in modern royal engagement rings. Lest sapphire get too haughty, it has common uses as well.
