For centuries, Sapphires have been the most coveted precious Gemstone among the four – Sapphires, Rubies, Emeralds and Diamonds. Sapphires were considered the most predominant Gemstone to the British in engagement rings. Within the next twenty-five years, approximately 75% of Sapphires on the market will be man-made/lab-created, whereas 50% are currently. An investment that will only escalate in value, with a neutral soothing color and hardness similar to a Diamond. Sapphires also come in various colors across the spectrum.
The Fleur de Lis symbol in jewelry is attributed to Joan of Arc & the immigrants who migrated from France to the French Quarter in New Orleans…
