About Sapphire
 Sapphire

Stone Information & Mining

Blue sapphire belongs to the mineral species corundum. The name "sapphire" can also apply to any corundum that's not red and doesn't qualify as ruby, another corundum variety. Besides blue sapphire and ruby, the corundum family also includes so-called "fancy sapphires." Fancy sapphires are generally less available than blue ones, and some colors are scarce, especially in very small or very large sizes. Still, fancy sapphires create a rainbow of options for people who like the romance associated with this gem, but who also want something out of the ordinary. Both blue and fancy sapphires come from a variety of exotic sources including Madagascar, Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and Australia.

Legend & Lore

Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. It has decorated the robes of royalty and clergy members for centuries. Its extraordinary color is the standard against which other blue gems—from topaz to tanzanite—are measured. For centuries, sapphire has been associated with royalty and romance. The association was reinforced in 1981, when Britain’s Prince Charles gave a blue sapphire engagement ring to Lady Diana Spencer. Until her death in 1997, Princess Di, as she was known, charmed and captivated the world. Her sapphire ring helped link modern events with history and fairy tales. In ancient Greece and Rome, kings and queens were convinced that blue sapphires protected their owners from envy and harm. During the Middle Ages, the clergy wore blue sapphires to symbolize Heaven, and ordinary folks thought the gem attracted heavenly blessings. In other times and places, people instilled sapphires with the power to guard chastity, make peace between enemies, influence spirits, and reveal the secrets of oracles.

Color

It can be a pure blue but ranges from greenish blue to violetish blue. "Fancy sapphires" come in violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and intermediate hues. There are also "parti-colored" sapphires that show combinations of different colors. Some stones exhibit the phenomenon known as color change, most often going from blue in daylight or fluorescent lighting to purple under incandescent light. Sapphires can even be gray, black, or brown.

Cleaning

Warm, soapy water is always safe. Ultrasonic and steam cleaners are usually safe for untreated, heat-treated, and lattice diffusion treated stones. Fracture-filled, cavity-filled, or dyed material should only be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Love it At first I wasn't sure if I would keep. I prefer smaller, lower style rings. However, the more I have worn this ring the more I have fallen in love with it. It is really beautiful, sparkles like my diamond, and the style is simple but classy and I can't take my eyes off of it. Am very happy I ordered this ring. 01-23-11
Absolutely Beautiful I bought this ring for my daughter for Christmas, well did she go nuts. She thought that they were diamonds. She put it next to her Dominique eternity band ring, what a gorgeous wedding set. She is dainty so it looks perfect on her hand. She said that it was the best present that she ever got. QVC you did it again!!!! My husband bought me the White Sapphire Cluster Earrings and I bought the White Sapphire Heart Pendant for myself. QVC I hope that you could keep getting White Sapphire Jewelry in the 58 facets round cut stones. QVC is the best place to shop for jewelry online. Keep up the good work. THANK YOU QVC 12-25-10
Pretty Ring ... Perfect Size I just received my ring today. Like several other comments, I agree, the ring is scratchy on the sides but it is too pretty to return. Mine is a little large. I really needed a size six. It sparkles and looks like a small flower. I can't help but look at it on my finger since it arrived. 12-08-10
Beautiful I had never heard of white sapphires before...I am so glad that I have added this ring to my jewelry collection...it is absolutely beautiful!!! It sparkles like nothing else...it sits a little high on but it is really comfortable...Its wonderful! 12-04-10
Very pretty but ..... ...I found the prongs on mine to be very rough and uncomfortable to wear, especially on the sides. Sorry to say, I sent it back. I wish the ring could be smoother, pave-set, or even bezel set at a slightly higher price. Then it would be perfect. The white sapphires were very clean and sparkly. 12-01-10
beautiful ring but!!!! When I received this ring I absolutely loved it, until I tried to slip it on my ring finger. I wear a size 7 on my ring finger, but when I put this ring on my finger it did not fit at all. It was way too small. I looked on the package and it said they sent size 7, but either their sizing is small, or they had the wrong size in the package. I sent back, but didn't reorder, because I wasn't sure if I should order size up or if it was an error in packaging. I was so disapointed, because it was a very lovely ring. 11-24-10
Wow Love this ring. I am using it with the Sapphire stack rings for my wedding rings they are fantastic 11-13-10
Sparkling petite ring This ring has beautiful, fine details and a lot of sparkle. It is smaller than I expected (very petite), but the silver work and the white sapphires make it a great buy. I gave it 4 stars only because it is so small on my finger. It's a great value at the sale price! 10-22-10
Beautiful Ring I wear this ring as a pinky ring. Everyone thought they were diamonds, Very dainty 10-06-10
Beautiful and sparkly!! This ring is much more beautiful than I expected. I'm wearing it as my wedding ring and I absolutely love it! It is so sparkly, especially outside in the sunlight. I would definitely recommend this ring. It is just perfect as an engagement/wedding ring!! 10-05-10
Perfect! I've been eyeing this ring since it first aired. I have a white sapphire bracelet that I think is nicer than most diamond tennis bracelets. I have so many rings from QVC that I felt I should just let this one pass me by. Well, today I received it! White sapphires are cleaner than most diamonds so I took the splurge. I just ordered a second one just in case I ever lose the first. I don't ever want to be without this ring. The other reviewer who is using this as an engagement ring is so so smart. It is perfect! 10-04-10
Lovely! This ring is sparkly, sparkly, sparkly! It's not large, and the setting is delicate and girly, but this is a substantial, well-made and VERY present piece of jewelry. Beautiful! 09-23-10
