The mesmerising, deep blue gleam of sapphire is enough to make you want to dive in. This intense colour is the standard against which other blue gemstones—from topaz to tanzanite—are measured. And if its hypnotic hue isn’t enough to make you fall in love, its rock hard composition ensures it’s the second hardest stone after a diamond – an eternal talisman in the making.
For centuries, sapphire has set royal hearts beating. Associated with nobility and romance, Britain’s Prince Charles gave a blue sapphire engagement ring to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. His son, Prince William, consequently passed on the regal ring to Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. Gracing the fingers of two adored princesses, this majestic sapphire heirloom ties modern events with a touch of romantic history and fairy tales.
Did you know… sapphire comes in an array of shades such as pink, purple and yellow, as well as a vibrant range of blues?
