Sapphire Pink

A gift of a sapphire symbolizes a pledge of trust and loyalty. It is from this tradition that sapphire has long been a popular choice for engagement rings. One of Nature's most durable gemstones, sapphire shares this quality with its sister, the ruby.

Pink sapphires range from red to purple with weak to vivid color saturation and lighter tone.
