The Legend Of Sapphires
Sapphires have been with us for centuries, the gemstone was initially reserved for royals and aristocrats. In the early days a commoner could not wear or own a sapphire gem even if, he or she could afford one. The royals claimed that the gem brought power and determination to its wearer, gifting the gem was supposed to imply a show of respect and sincerity. Most royal households had their share of priceless sapphire gemstones, these often included huge chunks that would today be worth millions of dollars. The interesting thing was that all these sapphire gems were blue, the name 'sapphire' was inspired by the Greek word 'sappheiros' and the Latin word 'sapphiru', both these words refer to the color blue. This very close association of sapphire and the color blue was probably the reason why, ancient Persians mistook blue lapis lazuli for sapphire. The theory put out by the Persian scholars was that, the world (globe) rested on a huge sapphire. it was the reflection from the sapphire gem that gave us the sky and stars above. As time went by it was realized that the reference here was to blue lapis with its sparkling pyrite specks that, was confused with the valuable sapphire gem. The RG800 Sapphire Diamond Ring crafted by the expert artisans at Kaisilver, features a gorgeous cushion cut blue sapphire gem in the center, a diamond graces each shoulder.
As time went by the blue beauty became available to anyone who could afford its premium price, centuries of seeking and mining meant that the gem began to get rarer. Even the wealthy began to reserve sapphires to celebrate special occasions, traditions built up linking the gem to true love, loyalty and sacrifice. The stiff price and exclusive status of sapphire made it the preferred choice for wedding and engagement rings. By then sapphire was credited with being both an anniversary and birthstone gem. Historians relate the 12 birthstones to the 12 gems studded in Aaron's breastplate, sapphire happened to be one of the gems on the breastplate worn by the high priest of the Jews. Those born in September can today proudly claim that the historic sapphire is their gemstone. As an anniversary gemstone, it is the 5th and 45th anniversaries that are marked with sapphire. The beauty, rarity, durability and rich folklore bestowed on sapphires, make them perfect for every occasion. You could gift a sapphire ring to your loving mother, a husband could present a fine sapphire diamond ring to his wife and loving mother of his children. The most lavish, elaborate and expensive sapphire gemstone rings are generally worn as wedding and engagement rings.

Science had a major role to play in bringing even greater joy and amazement to sapphire gemstone lovers.

The sapphire story goes on and own, it began centuries before our time and will evolve for centuries into the future. There is only one factor that can slow down or limit development of this amazing gem, it is the lack of supply. Modern mining techniques are intensive, gem miners move deep into the mining pits and scoop up every single fragment of sapphire that can be found.
