The pink sapphire has a royal tie
The pink sapphire is also known as the “royal gem”. It was the colour chosen by Italian heiress Beatrice Borromeo for her vintage lace wedding dress when she married Monaco’s Pierre Casiraghi in August 2015. Monaco’s most iconic bride, Grace Kelly, also wore a classic pale pink suit for her civil ceremony when she married Prince Rainier III.

The fine line between a pink sapphire and a ruby
Did you know that sapphires are formed from the same mineral as rubies? Called corundum, this rare precious stone is mined in all different colours.
There is a fine line between where a ruby’s red colour ends and a pink sapphire’s hue begins! Many gem experts debate it, but no official distinction has been established. That’s why natural pink sapphires are said to exist in a whole scale of shades: from baby pink to deep fuchsia.
