Ancient Persian rulers believed that a sapphire wedding ring was a reflection of the blue heavens above. Indeed, its very name in Latin, sapphirus, means blue. Natural gem-quality sapphire is found in many parts of the world, but the rarest gems are from Kashmir and Myanmar (Burma), most prized because their color is closest to pure spectral blue.

Fine sapphire is also produced in Sri Lanka in limited supply, both in blue and fancy color. Sapphire is also found in Thailand, Cambodia, Tanzania, Madagascar, Australia, and the United States (Montana). Many couples in recent years have chosen the sapphire for an engagement ring over the traditional diamond solitaire.

Options Are Endless

A sapphire wedding ring can be just as spectacular as a diamond wedding ring. In fact, a sapphire ring is a bold statement to the world that you thrive on individuality and that you have impeccable taste. Sapphires are so tasteful and desirable that in 1980, Prince Charles slipped an oval sapphire flanked by brilliant diamonds on Lady Diana Spencer's ring finger, and the rest is history.

Certainly, sapphires are not just for Royals, but for people all over the world who are in love. Sapphires make unique wedding rings that are sure to turn a few heads. Most importantly, they will turn the head of the special lady who receives such a spectacular ring.
