The sapphire is a favorite gem for engagement rings. It symbolizes faithfulness and sincerity. Traditionally, it is used to mark a 5th and 45th wedding anniversary as well. As an everyday gem, the sapphire is believed to promote joy and to protect during long journeys.

The name Sapphire is derived from the Greek and Latin. It means blue. The characteristic blue of the sapphire is due to the presence of iron and titanium within the gem. However, the sapphire also occurs in a wide range of other colors, from yellow and green to black, and some are clear.

Ancient Persians believed that the earth rested on a magnificent sapphire and that it was its reflection that colored the sky. In the Middle Ages, many believed that wearing a sapphire could assist in the quest for higher thinking.

The Sapphire has been valued and abundantly used by royalty throughout the ages. Sapphires were mined in Sri Lanka and India as early as the 7th Century BC.
