The rich significance and brilliant blue color makes a sapphire an elegant and versatile fit for every jewelry collection. Ancient Persian rulers believed the sky was painted blue by the reflection of sapphires, reflecting the stone’s connection with the heavens and symbolizing its powerful beauty and energy. Kings also wore sapphires around their necks as a powerful defense against harm. Some believe the name of the blue jewel is derived from its association with Saturn, with sapphire roughly translated to “dear to the planet Saturn” in many different languages.

In some religions, the blue color of the sapphire represents heaven. Derived from the Latin word saphirus and Greek word sappheiros meaning blue, sapphires protect the wearer from envy and attract divinity. For centuries, the exuberant gem has been seen as a symbol of divinity, a guardian of chastity, a bestower of truth, a promoter of good health and a preserver of innocence. The sapphire is a very powerful talisman, according to ancient and medieval civilizations. Buddhists believed sapphires brought spiritual enlightenment and devotion, while Hindus deemed them as great gems used in offerings at their temples for worship in order to align astrological forces. When traveling to the Oracle at Apollo’s Shrine at Delphi, the Greeks wore sapphires for wisdom.

Sapphires are the most important and versatile of all gemstones because sapphires are available in many colors. Because of their hardness, sapphires and rubies are said to be prized just under the level of diamonds. In terms of hardness, diamonds are listed as a ten and sapphires a nine. The sapphire's hardness makes it the ideal gemstone for jewelry that needs to stand up to everyday wear, such as rings and bracelets.
