Sapphires have been treasured for thousands of years and are thought to represent wisdom, loyalty, nobility and even purity of the soul. The best known sapphires are the rich blue variety, but they actually come in every colour of the rainbow—including pink sapphire, yellow sapphire, orange sapphire and even green sapphire. Sapphire is one of the hardest naturally occurring materials known to man; the only natural material that can scratch a sapphire is diamond. The durability of sapphires makes them an excellent choice for engagement rings and other pieces of jewellery that you plan to wear every day, such as earrings, bracelets, pendants and rings.

The term cornflower blue sapphire refers to a gemstone with a colour similar to the intense blue colour of a cornflower, a flower that is purely blue, rather than violet or purple. Sapphires generally have undertones of green or purple, so a cornflower blue sapphire is said to be closer to ‘true’ blue, along with excellent tone and saturation to highlight the purity of the colour. While the term cornflower blue is more descriptive than scientifically precise, it is extremely rare to find a sapphire of pure blue, so these are particularly prized.The term Ceylon sapphire comes from the colonial name of Sri Lanka, which has long been famed for the wealth of gems mined and traded from its shores. While many fine gems come from Sri Lanka, the ceylon sapphire is valued for its vivid colour which tends to be a lighter and brighter blue than the darker blue sapphires from other producing countries such.
