Wearing a sapphire ring is a time-honored tradition for people who value sapphire for both its beauty and its symbolism. They have been admired for centuries by cultures around the globe. Kings and Queens once prized them for their supposed ability to confer supernatural abilities and wisdom, and in the early church, many early church leaders would wear a sapphire ring for its ability to protect them from harm. The belief in sapphires as a powerful talisman can be traced to the Hebrew tradition that the Ten Commandments were etched on tablets of pure sapphire. From there, it is not surprising that many people began to wear sapphire rings in order to harness the power of these stones.
Other traditional beliefs hold that wearing a Sapphire Ring endows individuals with chastity and protect them from the plague, fevers and skin diseases. Some even believe sapphires can help deflect curses and black magic.
