sapphire engagement ring

Mostly known for their rich blue hue, sapphires are a popular coloured gemstone. They have a rich history and have long been favoured in jewellery by royalty and celebrities. From the Duchess of Cambridge’s stunning sapphire engagement ring to the Blue Giant of the Orient, which is the largest faceted blue sapphire in the world, there are many impressive famous sapphire pieces to admire. But what does a sapphire engagement ring mean? We learn the origin, meaning and symbolism behind this beautiful blue gemstone.

Sapphire origin

Sapphires originated in India in the 1800s and since then have been discovered in areas across the world. Today, sapphires are mined mainly in Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar, Madagascar and Australia. Montana was given the nickname the “Treasure State” after sapphires were found during a quest to find gold in 1865.

History of sapphires

Often considered a symbol of nobility, clergy members and royalty decorated their robes with sapphires for centuries. In ancient Greece and Rome, Kings and Queens believed that sapphires protected them from envy and harm. Throughout the Middle Ages, people believed blue sapphires symbolised heaven and attracted heavenly blessings. Due to the rich history and symbolism behind sapphires, they are still associated with good fortune, royalty and protection today.

Types of sapphires

Most people don’t realise there are different types of sapphires. In jewellery, when we use the word “sapphire”, we are referring to blue sapphires. Sapphires come in many colours (minus red), such as purple, pink, orange and brown. The colour of a sapphire depends on how and where it was formed, but blue sapphires are the most popular colour.
