What is Sapphire?

Sapphire is in many respects one of the most important of the colored stones. Rubies and sapphires are more familiar and cherished by layman than many of the other gem varieties. With a hardness of 9 on Moh's scale, sapphires are extremely hard and second only to diamonds in this respect. Sapphires are noted for the large range of colors in which they occur. The name fancy sapphire, is used to describe sapphires which are not blue. Fancy sapphires are available in an amazing range of colors including yellow, green, violet, pink, brown, purple, violet, white, black and orange.

Color is the single most important factor in determining the value of a sapphire. Indeed, the color of a sapphire is more important than it's clarity. Sapphires are rarely clean like diamonds and even very expensive stones can be moderately included. Subtle differences in color correspond to marked variations in price valuations. Fine stones of good color and clarity are always rare and uncommon. The best and most valuable colors for blue sapphires are actually violetish blue. Highly saturated medium or dark medium tones are best and sapphires which are too dark or too light are worth considerably less.

Sapphire has long symbolized truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. Tradition holds that Moses was given the ten commandments on tablets of sapphire, making it the most sacred gemstone. Because sapphires represent divine favor, they were the gemstone of choice for kings and high priests. The British Crown Jewels are full of large blue sapphires, the symbol of pure and wise rulers. Since sapphire symbolizes sincerity and faithfulness, it is an excellent choice for an engagement ring. When Prince Charles chose a sapphire engagement ring for Princess Diana, couples all over the world were inspired to revive this venerable tradition. With a hardness of 9, sapphires are extremely hard and suitable for any kind of jewelry.
