This unique piece had a previous life in Italy.
The story: The Greeks already knew about sapphire in 480 BC, which they imported from Sri Lanka, hence the fame of the “Ceylon Sapphires”. Since then, many cultures have adopted it, such as the Catholic Church, for whom the celestial color of sapphire represents a closeness to the kingdom of God. In Asia, Buddhists dedicate the stone to the gods, a guide in meditation and a bringer of peace and happiness.
