Of all the coloured gemstones throughout all the ages, sapphires would without doubt be the most well known. Just the name “sapphire” conjures up images of richly coloured blues, greens and yellows. Long before diamonds were ever even thought of for engagement rings, sapphires had always been worn to signify that special bond between two people. Sapphires are prized for their rarity, vivid colour and hardness second only to diamond. They are perfect for every jewellery setting.
