Among the “Big Three” gemstones, sapphires deserve their place with emerald and ruby gemstones, because of their rich deep color.The cerulean blue of sapphire is unlike any other gemstone… but did you know there's more to this gemstone than just its beautiful blue coloration?

The Many Colors of Sapphire

Sapphires belong to a group of gemstones known as “corundums.” Even the legendary ruby is a corundum, making sapphire and rubies almost the same. The key difference? Rubies are always red, or at the very least, reddish pink. But sapphires can be any color in between. Blue might be the first you think of, but consider the magic of orangish-pink, light yellow or purple sapphires.

Corundum is also used as one of the key materials on emery boards.So next time you're giving yourself a manicure, think about how the corundum in an emery board is just as valuable as the sapphire ring on your finger when it comes to making you look gorgeous.

The History of Sapphire

Sapphire gemstones are said to have a lot of powers. Royalty would often carry or wear blue sapphires in order to protect themselves from harm or envy… but it's a challenge NOT to be envious of this precious gem. We certainly wouldn't blame you. And not only that but sapphire is a symbol to many of faith and trust, and because of this, is said to make peace in disagreements.

A well-known use for sapphire is in the engagement rings of Kate Middleton and Princess Diana. This design choice popularized the use of sapphires in engagement rings.
