White Sapphires have been around for thousands of years. They have been used as a Diamond substitute for as long as jewelry has been made by humans. Because it is hard and durable, it is a natural choice as a low cost Diamond substitute. Nowadays, White Sapphire has been enjoying a renewed interest among jewelry designers and artisans that work with colored gemstones.

Large white sapphires are exceptionally rare in pure white color, as any slight impurity will give the stones a tint of color, mostly blue. White Sapphire and Fashion Rings
