Coveted and revered throughout the ages, sapphires have made many appearances in ancient history. It was recorded that Helen of Troys most prized possession was her beautiful blue star sapphire. Vedic astrologers prescribed sapphires to be worn touching the skin, to heal and protect the wearer. Even the 10 commandments are believed to have been inscribed on tablets fashioned from sapphire. But sapphires popularity is not relegated to the past. Always fashionable, sapphires have become extremely popular since Princess Diana was given a blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds for her engagement ring. And while blue may be the best known hue, sapphires can be found in all colors and shades.
