Sapphires symbolize a pledge of trust and loyalty, making it a popular choice for engagement rings. In ancient times, the Persians believed the earth rests on a giant sapphire. Its reflection, they said, made the sky blue. Sapphires are found in many areas of the world including Kashmir, Burma, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Thailand, Cambodia, Australia, Tanzania, Kenya, and the United States. Cornflower SapphiresTM are named for their brilliant blue color which resembles the unique blue of the cornflower.
Cornflower SapphiresTM are set with cool tones of Vanilla Diamonds® and Vanilla Gold® to bring out its vibrant blue flavor.
In the news? The 'Blue Belle of Asia,' a 392.52-carat Ceylon sapphire was the fourth of the most expensive jewels sold at auction in 2014 (the other 3 were natural color diamonds).
