Sapphires are a precious gemstone like diamonds, rubies (which are a red sapphire) and emeralds. When you think of sapphires, you will probably think of a dark blue royal gemstone. But sapphires comes in a rainbow of colors - even in white, as you see in Abelstedt's selection. White sapphires are among the most expensive and rarest of all sapphires. And some white sapphires can be more expensive than a white diamond.
Sapphires is made of the mineral called corundum, which makes it a very hard, durable and stable gemstone for everyday use. Sapphires have a hardness of nine out of ten on the Mohs scale, where a diamond is a 10s.

The sapphire is alumina with a trigonal crystal structure, it is in the same family as the red ruby. The only difference between a ruby and a sapphire is simply the color. A ruby is red. Other colored crystals are called sapphires and they come in many colors where the most well known is blue. Since sapphires are available in so many colors, they are the most important and versatile of all gemstones. Rubies and sapphires are said to be valued just below the level of diamonds because of its hardness. Diamonds are rated as a 10 in terms of hardness, with the sapphire lying at nine. The sapphire's property of hardness makes it a perfect choice for jewelry that must withstand everyday wear and tear, so the stone would be an amazing choice for an engagement ring.
The gemstone inclusions reflect light that gives a faint sheen called "silk". The most transparent, colorless variety of sapphires is known as "Leucosapphire." Some have streaks of light color inside, others have the slightly silky sheen in bright light where their color intensifies. Sapphires are usually round or oval in their cut, but can also be obtained rectangular, pear or square.
