Grand Dame of gemstones
Precious sapphire is the cornerstone of any jewelry collection
Deep blue sapphire: the undisputed Grande Dame of the gemstone kingdom. Is there anything more elegant? Adorn-ing crowns of ancient kings, embellishing thrones of Persian emperors, flaunted by Hollywood royalty, bestowed upon countless brides-to-be, the sapphire has a long history of at-tracting major attention.
Since the beginning of time sapphires have inspired fasci-nation, envy and in some cases, rash action. According to legend, Helen of Troy owned a large star sapphire, which was believed to hold the key to her desirability. With at least thirty suitors vying for her hand she married King Menelaus of Sparta, but was abducted by Paris, an act that led to the Trojan War. Perhaps the beauty that “launched a thousand ships” owed it all to the allure of sapphires!
Every jewelry collector knows that a fi ne sapphire is the cornerstone to any collection. And, no luxury was spared in creating this magnifi cent piece. Here, a perfect sapphire teardrop is framed by sparkling white diamonds creating a magnifi cent contrast. It’s time to pay homage to the Grand Dame—your brilliant blue beauty is waiting.
