    The legendary sapphires of the Kashmir region were first discovered in a remote part of the Himalayan Mountains around 1880. Quickly becoming the property of the Maharaja, the sapphire mines were worked day and night throughout the summer months until 1887, when they were completely depleted. Kashmiri sapphires are a rich and lustrous blue, often compared to that of a cornflower, and surpassing that of sapphires from any other part of the world. With such limited production, Kashmir sapphires make up a tiny percentage of the world's total sapphire supply.
