The saying “True Blue” came about during the Roman empire. When the Czars would have loyal subjects that were very true to them, they would give them a blue sapphire as a reward for being loyal and honest to them. Hence today the reason for blue sapphires being handed down to royalty is that the honesty and the truthfulness shall always remain within their reign. Now in modern tradition we continue to use the blue sapphire as a gesture of the underlying meaning that I will always love you and be true to you, hence the phrase “True Blue”. Sapphire is also the birthstone for the month of September.
This is a ceylon sapphire, oval cut, approximately 2.5 carat center stone with a beautiful halo and side diamonds of approximately .25 tdw set in 14k white gold and is a sizeable 6.5. This would be the perfect example of a “True Blue” engagement ring for that loyal love of your life.
