Sapphire

The name sapphire (Greek-blue) is used to describe a variation of stones.
As late as the middle ages, the name sapphire was understood to mean what is today described as lapis lzuli, which now we know is a completely different stone.

These beautiful stones are becoming more and more popular for engagement rings as well as wedding bands and eternity rings. Due to the amount of colours sapphires are available in and shapes and sizes. Also, considering you can get a larger looking stone in a sapphire for about 30% cheaper than diamond (depending on the sapphire) its all about the size when it comes to engagement rings!
Mixing colours like sapphires and diamonds makes for some interesting designs. Adding small sapphires to a ring or making the sapphire a centre piece, the choices are endless.

In around 1800’s sapphire and ruby were recognised to be the same material known as corundum. Which we now know comes in a range of different colours such as orange, pink, purple, red, green and blue.

There is no real definition between ruby and sapphires. Light red, pink or violet corundum is generally called sapphire but if they were considered rubies they would be grouped as inferior colour for rubies.

The hardness of sapphire on the MOHs scale is 9 but some corundum can have a hardness up to 9.5.
The most sought after colours for corundum are Blood red rubies,  Ceylon sapphire royal blue and pure cornflower blue.

Sapphires are mined in various countries around the world including Thailand, Burma,  Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
