Sapphire was used by the Etruscans over 2,500 years ago and was also prized in Rome, Greece and Egypt. Revered as the stone of royalty, sapphire was believed to keep things safe from harm or envy. It was also purported to protect you.

Sapphire has also long symbolised truth, sincerity and faithfulness. Tradition holds that Moses was given the 10 Commandments on tablets of Sapphire, making it the most sacred gemstone. Because Sapphires represent divine favour, they were the gemstones of choice for Kings and high priests. The British Crown Jewels are full of large blue sapphires, the symbol of pure and wise rulers.

Sapphire is the birthstone of September, the month when most babies are born. Ancient lists also name sapphire as the birthstone for April and the gemstone for the sign of Taurus.
