For connoisseurs of color there is no blue quite like that found in a fine sapphire. That has helped make the blue sapphire one of the most mysterious, and coveted, of all gems. This spring renowned Swiss jewellers Gübelin probes the depths of this unforgettable stone through a set of very special pieces.  Blue sapphires have captured the imagination for millennia. Deep, alluring, and often unfathomable, their subtle shades have often been associated with the blue of heaven and the all-encompassing sky. This has made them almost divine to many, symbols of nobility, virtue and wisdom.

Anyone who has had the good fortune to gaze into a fine blue sapphire, however, knows that it is a stone of great depth as well. Its mysterious hues pull one in, revealing a deep blue world full of marvel. Evoking the depths of the sea, sapphire blue can therefore also remind us of the origins of life. That makes it a potent symbol of life’s deeper meanings, of important connections, whether in nature or in our own lives, of loyalty and of the nurturing of deep friendships and lasting relationships.
