We savor the majesty of September’s birthstone - the bright royal blue sapphire.
One of the most famous sapphires is not the largest or most remarkable, but it was worn by one of the world’s most photographed women.
Princess Diana was regaled for her impeccable style and magnanimous demeanor.
Sri Lankan in origin, the stone had a valuable and desirous hue - well matched to the intensity of the young Princess’ eyes.
The cluster style ring was crafted by the royal jeweler Garrard in 18 karat white gold with the center stone elevated by a diamond halo surround.
The piece sparked a frenzy for the design that recently had a resurgence via Kate Middleton.
