17.03.2023 | Sapphires Beautifully Encapsulated | Precious Stones

Blue sapphires are among the most highly valued gemstones in the world – prized for their vibrant hue and associating the gemstone with royalty, wisdom and protection. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or simply curious about this beautiful gemstone, we reveal some of Dehres’ stunning blue sapphires in our latest blog.


Sapphires that originate from the Kashmir region are typically the rarest, most beautiful, and desirable of all sapphires. Their treasured beauty is due to unique needle-like⁠ inclusions known as rutile needles, giving Kashmir sapphires their⁠ distinct, velvety and sumptuous glow. Their beauty, combined with their rarity and allure mean that Kashmir sapphires command the steepest prices among all sapphires.

Burma is another important country of origin when it comes to sapphires. Known for their deep color saturation that often result in their being classified as ‘Royal Blue’, Burmese sapphires are, indeed, very special.

Weighing in at 15.48 carats, this Royal Blue cushion cut Burmese sapphire ring is truly a sight. The fact that it shows no indication of any heat or treatment makes this exceptionally clean and saturated sapphire even more remarkable. ⁠


Sri Lankan, also known as Ceylon, sapphires are prized for their bright medium to deep-tone blue color. Sapphires with such features are referred to as ‘Cornflower’ or ‘Royal’ blue, respectively. They are, both, extremely desirable with Royal Blue sapphires commanding steeper prices. With mines in Kashmir being shut and Burma focusing its mining efforts on Rubies, Sri Lanka has become a primary source for sapphires, today.
