Sapphires are precious gemstones known for their stunning blue colour, although they can occur in various other colours as well. They belong to the corundum mineral species, which also includes rubies. Sapphires are valued for their beauty, durability, and rarity, making them highly sought after in the jewellery industry.
Blue sapphire is the most popular and well-known colour of sapphire. It ranges in hues from light blue to deep, velvety blue. The finest blue sapphires come from Kashmir, which are renowned for their rich cornflower blue colour.
Sapphires are also found in other colours such as yellow, pink, green, orange, purple, and even colourless (known as white sapphire). These coloured sapphires are collectively referred to as fancy sapphires.
Sapphires have for long been associated with nobility, wisdom, and divine favour throughout history. They have been used in royal jewellery and are often considered a symbol of loyalty, truth, and sincerity.
