The Magnificent “Ceylon Sapphires” have continued to adorn Crowns, Thrones and Tiaras of many Kings and Queens whilst several others have become the prized possessions of the Rich, Erudite collectors as well as Prestigious Learning Institutes and Museums who have adored them among their priceless chattels.
Prince Charles Heir to the British Throne charmed his fiancée Lady Diana Spencer with a dazzling engagement ring consisting of uniquely magnificent 12 Carat Cornflower Blue Oval Ceylon Sapphire encircled by 14 solitaire diamonds personally handpicked from Pelmadulla Sri Lanka by Garrads the Royal Jeweler. The royal tradition continued over the years with Prince William signifying his engagement to Ms Kate Middleton with the gracious Cornflower Blue Ceylon Sapphire and Diamond cluster ring.
Furthermore, the St. Edward’s Sapphire, set in a Maltese cross resting atop the imperial crown of the British Monarchy also traces its origins back to Sri Lanka. These testamentary artefacts admired and highly desired across the universe tantalizingly embellished by the Blue Sapphires from Sri Lanka has fittingly dubbed this paradise as the ‘The Sapphire Capital’ of the World’.
