Like the ruby, the sapphire is a variety of the corundum.
Although its most frequent color is vivid blue, there are also pink, yellow, orange and violet sapphires.
Sapphire mines vary greatly in location; most are situated in South East Asia (Sri Lanka, and Thailand) and Australia, but there are others in Brazil or in Africa (Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, etc.).
Today, the sapphire is admired as a stone with a soft, discreet beauty, and is never ostentatious. To give a sapphire is to give an elegant, powerful stone. Its deep color is at its most beautiful and sparkling in the daylight.
The Maison Boucheron is delighted to advise clients in their search for an original engagement ring with character, and it offers a selection of sapphires of all shapes and sizes.
