In recent years, blue sapphires have been one of the most popular gemstones among celebrities. Blue sapphires, from engagement rings to everyday jewelry, can be seen on the red carpet and beyond. Let’s look at some of the celebrities who have been spotted wearing blue sapphires.
What makes Blue Sapphires so special?
Blue sapphires are one of the most popular and valuable gemstones. They are found in various colors, but the most prized are those with a deep blue hue. The blue color is caused by the stone’s traces of iron and titanium. Sapphires are typically cut into faceted stones or cabochons and set into rings, pendants, earrings, and other jewelry.
Sapphires are among the hardest gemstones, making them durable and resistant to scratching, chipping, and breaking. Blue sapphires are also quite rare, contributing to their high value.
