Many people are headed to the Azeera store to design custom sapphire engagement rings. This isn’t just a hot new trend or the latest in-demand engagement ring style. The history of sapphires in engagement rings actually goes hundreds of years, first becoming popular in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries and continuing in popularity through the 1920’s. In recent years, there has been a resurgence in sapphire popularity thanks to notable sapphire engagement rings worn by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley, and Princess Kate.
So why is the sapphire so popular in engagement rings? It could be due to the meaning behind this beautiful stone. Many cultures believes the stone brought protection and wisdom to its wearer and it’s a stone that’s often associated with royalty. It’s also often associated with truth and clarity. While the stone is most commonly known for a beautiful blue hue, it can actually come in a variety of colors including pink, yellow and green.
Ancient Persians believed that the Earth rests on one huge sapphire whose color reflects the sky. More than that, they believed that sapphires represent faith and truth.
Here is one more interesting myth: Ancient Moses got the “ten commandments” on tablets of a sapphire what made sapphire the most sacred gemstone of them all!
Lets not forget the sapphire’s healing powers: it is believed that it removes all impurities from the eye and that it is a very powerful talisman for travelers.
If your beloved one is born in September, a sapphire is the right gemstone choice for her since it is the birthstone of September. However, ancient beliefs claim that this divine gem is associated with Taurus, so it is considered to be a birthstone of April, as well.
