When you think of sapphires, the first thing that comes to mind is blue gemstones. However, the range of colours that genuine sapphires have to offer is far greater! Depending on the deposit and the elements involved in the formation of the stones, sapphires can occur in almost every colour of the rainbow. Sapphires with particularly expressive colours are especially sought after, which is why we are especially pleased with the beautiful, bright pink, all-natural sapphire in this vintage white gold ring. The precious pink sapphire in a cushion-shaped facet cut is set very discreetly by small lobes and nestles wonderfully in a classically designed ring head that sparkles spectacularly with ten white diamonds. The diamonds surround the sapphire in a stylish entourage, so that the entire ring head shines with countless reflections of light. The ring, which we discovered in Munich and which immediately impressed us with its quality and the beauty of the rare sapphire, was created in the 1970s. It comes with an appraisal from the German Gemstone Appraisal Society.

The sapphire is a truly royal stone. Even more frequently than the ruby, it adorns the crowns of the monarchies of Europe: the English state crown sparkles in the light of 18 beautiful stones, and that of the Bohemian king Wenceslas has just as many. And yet the sapphire shares many properties with the ruby, because for the mineralogist both stones belong to the group of corundum. The most famous sapphires in the world come from Kashmir, where today only a few sapphires are mined. Kashmir sapphires show a powerful cornflower blue and have a so-called "sleepy", slightly milky character. Sapphires from other sites show different shades of blue: stones from Mianmar, which can also reach the highest qualities, tend more towards an ultramarine. Sapphires from Sri Lanka tend to shine in a lighter, sky-blue tone. Sapphires from both locations tend to show stronger inclusions. It should not be forgotten, however, that sapphires can be more than just blue! Because like the ruby, the sapphire belongs to the corundum group. Since in mineralogy all corundums except the red ruby are called sapphires, yellow, green and orange sapphires are encountered in addition to the blue varieties. These stones, if they have an outstanding quality in colour and freedom from inclusions, also fetch high prices in the trade. The pink to orange variety of sapphire is particularly sought after: these stones come exclusively from Sir Lanka and are known as Padparadscha. Today, however, the colour of stones from other regions is often altered by technical treatment and then also sold as padparadscha. In popular belief, the sapphire is considered the stone of truth, loyalty, prudence and reason. Accordingly, the Doge of Venice wore such a mild blue stone as a sign of his fidelity and marriage to the sea, set in gold. And Queen Elizabeth I of England also believed that her sapphire could protect her against slander and cunning.
