A gemstone from the mineral variety corundum, sapphires are naturally found in every color in the spectrum (when red they’re classified as ruby). Because of their intense color and excellent light reflection, pink sapphires are particularly coveted. From baby pink to hot magenta, this gem offers especially unique hues that complement any skin tone.
From Victorian-era jewelry to contemporary design, sapphires are a favorite gemstone for bridal pieces to last the ages. A gem variety of corundum, sapphire gets its colors from subtle differences in chemical composition, such as varying amounts of iron or titanium. This produces colors that range from deep and inky to lighter tones, with a cool iridescent sparkle.
