Sapphires have long been valued for their lovely color as well as their reputation for being symbols of power and faithfulness and utilized in beautiful sapphire jewelry. The word sapphire is from the Greek “sappheiros,” meaning blue and an ancient Sanskrit word that means “dear to Saturn.” The deep, cornflower blue of a sapphire necklace is reminiscent of the oceans, lakes and the sky at dusk, all calming, centering aspects of nature. The intense color of a sapphire comes from the mineral corundum within the stone. The varying shades of blue are due to the different levels of iron and titanium within each stone. In some cases, sapphires aren’t blue at all, but red, yellow, orange or green, although blue is currently the most popular color by far.
It shouldn’t be surprising that even ancient man associated the color blue with stability, order and faithfulness. In medieval times, sapphire necklaces were often worn by both men and women as signs of power as well as charms against illness. Even today, people who wear blue are seen as trustworthy and honest. In Indian Ayurvedic medicine, wearing a sapphire necklace stimulates the third eye and throat chakras, imparting a deeper level of consciousness and allowing individuals to communicate sincerely and effectively on a spiritual level.
