The velvety blues of Sapphires have created a strong desire for the gemstone throughout history.
Prized by nobility, Sapphire has been discovered on nearly every continent.
Sapphire is a member of the corundum family and is colored by the trace elements iron and titanium.
The most commonly known color for Sapphire is blue but it exists in all the colors of the rainbow.
In their red variation, corundums are called Rubies but in all other colors, they are refered to as "Fancy Sapphires".
The hardness and durability of Sapphire make it a desirable choice for jewelry.
