Sapphire is one of those gems that comes in virtually every color of the rainbow. With that said, the most recognizable and popular color of Sapphires by far is blue. I've seen literally every shade of blue known to man exhibited in Sapphires, and they are still some of the most admired, durable and highly sought after gems on the planet. This stone has a strong royal blue color face up, and looks beautiful in both sunlight and incandescent light. The stone is very slightly included and has a standard "Step Oval" cut. It is a very attractive example of this storied material.
