Sapphires look absolutely stunning set in earrings, pendants, eternity rings and even with diamonds set in engagement rings. The name is from the Greek word “sappheiros” – meaning “precious stone”. Sapphires are a blue transparent variety of corundum, and highly sought after as a precious gemstone. Although the stone comes in different natural colours, the most common and associated is a deep, vivid blue. Like diamonds the stone is graded by colour, cut, clarity and carat weight, and also extremely durable – perfect for everyday jewellery wear. The beautiful blue stone has been worn in Royalty through the years, and was recently given to Kate Middleton when Prince William proposed. The largest Sapphire in the world is a huge 61,500 carats and weighs 12.3kg. The mighty stone was discovered in 1995 on the shores of Madagascar, Africa.
