To answer what you may be asking yourself... is it real? Well, yes and no. This stone IS a real sapphire - but it is lab-grown, an ethical alternative to mining. High-quality lab-grown sapphires differ from low quality “simulated” stones, in that they are physically identical to natural sapphires and boast the same hardness and spectacular color. A natural sapphire of this size and quality might only be found in a museum, or in a royal collection.
Sapphire has long been associated with royalty, worn by kings for protection as early as the 2nd century AD. Emperor Charlemagne wore a large sapphire amulet around his neck, vowing never to take it off. Princess Diana was famously gifted a sapphire ring upon her engagement to the Prince of Wales. Prized not only for their beauty but their great strength - these magnificent stones rank high on the gemstone durability scale (second only to diamonds.
