Sapphires are the hardest precious stone after diamonds and come in a stunning array of colours including blue, violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple as well as intermediate hues.
The different colours are due to different chemical elements present when the sapphire forms, these trace elements create the rainbow hues, for example chromium is responsible for pink sapphire colour, and iron and titanium traces result is a blue sapphire. You can read more about the science behind the stones here.
Sapphires are said to encourage truth, loyalty, wisdom and faithfulness, making it a popular and symbolic stone to use for engagement rings. In fact, the best-known sapphire in recent years is Princess Diana's 12ct blue sapphire and diamond engagement ring. It was given by her son to Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge.
