|This article is about the Crystal Gem Sapphire. You may be looking for another Sapphire.|
Ruby, my future used to look like one single, obvious stream, unbending 'til the end of time. In an instant, you pulled me from that destiny, and opened my eye to an explosion of infinite possible futures, streaking across space and time, altered and obliterated by the smallest force of will. What I mean is, you changed my life. And then, I changed your life. And now, we change our lives.
Sapphire is a member of the Crystal Gems who made her official debut in "Jail Break". Previously a member of Blue Diamond's court, her mission was to inform her Diamond about the Rebels' attack using her Future Vision. After one of her guards, Ruby, fused with her accidentally, Sapphire fled with her to prevent her from being shattered by Blue Diamond. Sapphire later joined the Crystal Gems and became part of their new facto leader Garnet, marrying her fusion partner in "Reunited".
AppearanceSapphire is a slender Gem and slightly taller than Ruby. She has blue skin, prominent lips, a large eye with blue iris and pupil upon her forehead, and pale blue; wavy hair with bangs that cover the top half of her face. Her facial structure resembles Garnet's. Her gemstone is in the palm of her right hand.
Sapphire wore a floor-length gown with white, rounded, puffy sleeves, a navy top with a blue pinafore, and a blue skirt with several frilly layers in several blue shades resembling an open geode. She also wore white elbow-length evening gloves. Her feet are usually hidden by her dress, on which she wore blue shoes in "Gem Heist".
Before her regeneration in "Jail Break", Sapphire's dress had navy blue sleeves and a dark blue vest without a pinafore.
In "The Answer" which flashes back to the Rebellion when she was part of Blue Diamond's court, Sapphire's dress has a white top with the Blue Diamond insignia and a navy blue vest with a frilly bottom. Although her feet are not visible, she is implied to have been barefoot (based on imagery seen in "Isn't It Love?" and Garnet's first form lacking a shoe on one foot). This form reappears in Steven Universe: The Movie when The Crystal Gems are reset to their first forms from the Gem Rejuvenator.
In "Reunited ", Sapphire forewent her dress to wear a black Tuxedo with a pink rose in her upper pocket during her wedding with Ruby.
Why does she always act like I'm being ridiculous? Just because she wants to pretend that she doesn't have any feelings!
|—Ruby, "Keystone Motel"|
Because of her precognitive abilities which allow her to have experienced the resolution of an event prior to it happening, Sapphire can come off as cold and distant. This is shown in "Keystone Motel", wherein which she feels the best option is to face problems by acting as though they have already been resolved. Because of this, she has trouble expressing her emotions in the present, heavily contrasting with her partner Ruby, who has a difficult time concealing her emotions. Her blasé attitude to the present can make her appear somewhat passive-aggressive. Despite this, Sapphire is shown to more outgoing between Ruby and herself, willing to start a conversation with one of her Ruby escorts about her thoughts on the Earth. In "Hit the Diamond", she is shown to be rather amorous and flirty with Ruby, to the point of detriment to her team.
In the same episode, Sapphire is shown to have a more violent side to her. When the leader of the Homeworld Rubies threw a flaming fastball, she managed to hit a home-run by encasing the bat in ice, all the while screaming with determination. When under a lot of stress, Sapphire is seemingly unable to control her powers, leading to her both figuratively and literally freezing up as ice begins to encase her in "The Answer" and "That Will Be All". "Now We're Only Falling Apart" goes further in-depth with this when her stress over Rose Quartz being Pink Diamond causes her to freeze and make snow the entirety of Rose's Fountain and the surrounding terrain. She forgoes her usual calm demeanor, greatly expressing her rage over Rose's deception and leaving to her Fountain in order to reflect on the matter. However, Sapphire isn't above reason even when under emotional disquietude, listening to Pearl's story on why Pink Diamond became Rose Quartz and started the rebellion. After she calms down, she realizes that she must apologize to Ruby right away, showing her concern for Ruby which turns in deep desolation at the loss of her partner in "What's Your Problem?", having learned Ruby has run away and worries she will never return.
Over 5,750 years ago, Sapphire lived on Homeworld, being an aristocratic Gem who formed part of Blue Diamond's court. Sapphire later was part of the diplomatic team sent to stop Rose Quartz's Rebellion on Earth, along with 3 Rubies assigned to guard her. Sapphire saw a future where the rebels, Rose Quartz and Pearl, were indeed caught and stopped, but seven Gems, including herself, were going to be poofed in the process. Just as she finished reporting her premonition to Blue Diamond, the rebels attacked as Sapphire had predicted, and destroyed the physical forms of six Gems, including two of her Ruby guards.
Before Sapphire was struck down, her remaining Ruby jumped forward and pushed her out of the way of Pearl's sword. They accidentally fused and formed Garnet for the first time. This first-ever fusion of two different Gems caused an uproar among the other Gems, during which Rose and Pearl escaped. However, Blue Diamond wasn't pleased and declared that Ruby shall be shattered for fusing with a member of her court and changing Sapphire's prophecy. However, Sapphire grabbed Ruby by the hand and ran off the edge of the Cloud Arena, floating down to Earth below. Sapphire was "frozen" because her future vision was wrong for the first time due to Ruby's impulsive nature. They found shelter in a cave, where Sapphire revealed her eye to Ruby and the two talked about their feelings when they were Garnet.
Ruby and Sapphire grew closer and eventually decided to fuse again. Garnet was found by Pearl and Rose shortly after forming. Upon being met with acceptance and not revulsion, she began to bombard Rose with questions about the events and circumstances that allowed her to become Garnet, as well as her own feelings about existing as a fusion. Rose told her to "never question this," and said that she was already the answer to all her questions—love. This would be the beginning of Sapphire's existence as part of Garnet for the next thousand years, fighting Homeworld with the Crystal Gems to protect Earth. At some point, she and Ruby chose to fuse permanently.
Soon after Steven is born, Garnet de-fuses to show Steven, who she believes is a kind of fusion, how to unfuse, but Ruby and Sapphire re-fuse once baby Steven begins to cry due to missing Garnet.
Garnet is poofed by Jasper and as a result Ruby and Sapphire reform separately after being kept as prisoners on the Gem Warship with the other Gems.
Sapphire sings in her cell in order to signal to Steven and Ruby. After Steven finds and frees Sapphire, she and Ruby reunite in the center of the ship. They make sure they are both okay before fusing once more into Garnet.
Ruby and Sapphire converse while they are Garnet after they see the Cluster Gems. Ruby becomes enraged and Sapphire tries to calm her down. Garnet almost unfuses, but Ruby and Sapphire find peace once again.
Garnet unfuses because Ruby and Sapphire have a conflict over Pearl's deception in "Cry for Help". Ruby believes that Pearl tricking Garnet into forming Sardonyx is an unforgivable act, while Sapphire is more open to Pearl redeeming herself. After Ruby storms out of the motel room, Sapphire sits quietly on a bed, expecting Ruby to calm down and see that Sapphire is right. The next day, at The Best Diner in the World, Sapphire says that Ruby will burn herself out eventually, causing Ruby to summon her gauntlet and smash the table onto its side. Steven leaves the diner, upset, and Ruby and Sapphire follow him out to see what is wrong. After realizing the effect of their conflict has on Steven, they make up and re-fuse into Garnet.
A Ruby squadron arrives at the Barn, leading Garnet to unfuse so Ruby can get them to leave. Ruby fails at this, but Steven convinces the Rubies that they can't search the barn until they win at baseball against a team of humans, and they have to leave if they lose. Sapphire, Amethyst, Pearl, and Lapis Lazuli all pretend to be humans and play on Steven's team. At the end of the game, Ruby encourages Sapphire until she finally hits the ball and wins the game for the humans. Out of pure joy and pride, Sapphire jumps into Ruby's arms and the two accidentally form Garnet, blowing the Crystal Gems' cover.
When Garnet is teaching Stevonnie how to stay fused under stress, Ruby is shown to get frustrated, but then have Sapphire comfort her, teaching Steven and Connie that they have to work together to stay together.
Garnet unfuses and Sapphire devises a plan to sneak into Pink Diamond's Zoo undetected. The Crystal Gems pretend to be Homeworld Gems delivering Steven as another human for the zoo. Sapphire asks Holly Blue Agate to take her, Ruby, and Pearl on a tour of the zoo, hoping to find a door to the enclosure through which Greg Universe can escape. Holly Blue shows them one, and Ruby and Sapphire distract Holly Blue by telling her that their ship's engine is in danger of exploding. Sapphire leaves with Holly Blue to give the other Crystal Gems time to figure out how to open the door. They fail to open it, however, and Steven is sent into the enclosure alone.
Sapphire continues traveling with Ruby, Pearl, and Holly Blue. Inside the Rose Quartz Bubble Room, Sapphire begins to freeze up in front of Blue Diamond when pressured to explain why she delivered Steven to the zoo, but Ruby holds Sapphire's hand to comfort her, and Sapphire is able to maintain their facade. Once Sapphire, Ruby, and Pearl are reunited with Amethyst, Steven, and Greg, they try to sneak back to their ship while hiding Steven and Greg from Holly Blue. However, Holly Blue realizes what's going on and attacks the Crystal Gems, and Ruby and Sapphire fuse once more to protect the others.
Following the revelation that Rose Quartz was actually Pink Diamond, Garnet destabilizes and unfuses, with Ruby sad and attempting to comfort the furious, betrayed Sapphire, who takes the lie personally. Sapphire yells at Ruby, taking out her stress on her, and questions their relationship. Sapphire warps to Rose's Fountain, leaving Ruby in tears as Pearl and Steven go after her. At Rose's Fountain, Sapphire felt useless and ignorant for not being able to see this via her future vision. Because of her hatred for the diamonds, she assumes Pink was only using the rebels as pawns. Pearl tells Sapphire and Steven the story of Pink Diamond's and Pearl's past. In the end, Sapphire returns to the house with Pearl and Steven, understanding that they didn't follow Rose; Rose followed them. However, once they warp back, Sapphire becomes shocked to find nobody in the now dark, vacant house, and a letter from Ruby.
After Steven, Pearl, and Sapphire return from Rose's fountain, Sapphire finds a letter from Ruby explaining that she is leaving. Steven, Pearl and Sapphire ask Amethyst if she knows where Ruby went, but she has not seen her since supplying the pen and paper to write the note. Sapphire breaks down in guilt while Pearl attempts to console her.
When Steven returns to the Beach House, he finds Sapphire being comforted by Pearl, and tells her Ruby is outside waiting to tell her something. Sapphire goes out and greets her, apologizing for her earlier behavior. To Sapphire's surprise, Ruby gets down on one knee and asks her to marry her so that they can be together even when they are not fused as Garnet. Sapphire happily accepts the proposal.
Ruby and Sapphire organize their wedding, practicing where and how it's going to be carried out, inviting many of the citizens of Beach City and the Gems. Sapphire mentions that she would like to have been able to invite old members of the Crystal Gems, who are now either shattered or corrupted and bubbled. That drives Steven to free Bismuth, who reunites with her fellow Gems and makes two rings for the couple (a copper one for Ruby and a tin one for Sapphire).
Before the wedding begins, Sapphire agrees to not cheat on seeing Ruby's wedding dress. After the two say their vows, they exchange the rings Bismuth had made for them, and Steven pronounces them as Garnet. They begin to kiss, fusing again.
Sapphire is forced to defuse from Ruby in order to attend the Era-3 Ball. She appears alongside other Sapphires approaching Steven. She later fuses back with Ruby into Garnet after Steven and Connie fused, but is poofed by Yellow Diamond almost immediately afterward.
Her gemstone was released by Steven from Yellow Diamond's bubble in her bubble chamber. She was later accidentally dropped into Homeworld's surface by Steven and picked back up by Rainbow Quartz 2.0 and fused for the first time with Steven and Ruby's gemstone to form Sunstone.
She has a rather minor appearance. She gets brought back in System/BOOT.pearl final(3).Info and after introducing herself to Ruby, they go offscreen. A few minutes later, Steven tries to cause a disaster, but Sapphire says he won’t, and he doesn’t. Instead, Spinel accidentally causes a disaster in which an anvil almost falls on Ruby; but Sapphire pushes her away, and they fuse. Sapphire is not seen after that.
Sapphire possesses standard Gem abilities, including regeneration, fusion, as well as presumably bubbling and shapeshifting. However, it is possible she doesn't have a weapon of her own as when a fusion first summons their weapon, they start with the weapons of their separate parts, and none of Saphire's fusions (even Obsidian, who showed Rubie's gautlent) showed Saphire's weapon.
- When fused with Ruby, they form Garnet.
- When fused with Ruby and Amethyst, they form Sugilite.
- When fused with Ruby and Pearl, they form Sardonyx.
- When fused with Ruby and Steven, they form the hybrid fusion Sunstone.
- When fused with Ruby, Pearl, and Amethyst, they form Alexandrite.
- When fused with Ruby, Pearl, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz, they form Obsidian.
- When fused with Ruby, Pearl, Amethyst, and Steven, they form the hybrid fusion Obsidian.
- Future Vision: Sapphire can see the future to some extent. According to Garnet, this ability is rare among Gems, enough so to place Sapphire in Blue Diamond's court. This power is hinted when she was able to find Ruby in a matter of seconds in "Jail Break", then confirmed in "Keystone Motel". "What's Your Problem?" hints that like Garnet, Sapphire mainly relies on probability to see the future, doubting that she would be able to predict the course of action of someone she couldn't be completely objective about someone as spontaneous as Ruby. She also doubts some predictions due to how unlikely seemed to her, despite she succeeded in "The Question."
- Multiple Futures: Unlike Garnet who can see multiple futures due to Ruby's impulsive influence and intervene in the change of the future, Sapphire could only see one definitive future where she doesn't intervene, probably for her passive personality.  According to Rebecca Sugar in an interview, Garnet can see multiple futures, while Sapphire is only able to see one single main time stream. However, it is revealed in "Hit the Diamond" and "That Will Be All", Sapphire has acquired the ability to see multiple futures.
- Cryokinesis: Sapphire can drastically lower the temperature of her surroundings, which is rather linked to her emotions rather than a conscious ability. This includes forming ice on the walls or freezing water in "Keystone Hotel". Offensively, Saphhire can freeze objects into solid ice and quickly summon ice spikes from the ground, as respectively seen in "Hit the Diamond" when she froze a baseball bat and "Now We're Only Falling Apart". Her power can make an area snow, making it snow all over Rose's Fountain. This ability contrasts to Ruby's ability to raise the temperature. When fused as Garnet, Sapphire's cryokinesis fuses with Ruby's pyrokinesis and forms Garnet's electrokinesis, as thunderstorms can result from the formation of masses of cold and warm air.
- Levitation: Sapphire can hover in the air at will. This ability was shown in "Keystone Motel" when she hovers onto the bed and when she can land herself with Ruby gently onto the ground in "The Answer".
- Enhanced Speed: Sapphire has proven to be able to travel great distances in a short time, possibly due to floating and not walking on legs. This ability isn't yet seen in any other Gem other than Diamonds.
Ruby, my future used to look like one single, obvious stream, unbending till the end of time. In an instant, you pulled me from that destiny and opened my eye to an explosion of infinite possible futures, streaking across space and time, altered and obliterated by the smallest force of will.
In "Keystone Motel", because they were mad at Pearl for lying, they temporarily split up to calm down and come to terms with each other's feelings toward Pearl's actions. She is shown to be the calmer member of the relationship (as she said she was filled with rage but looked as calm as she was), sometimes to the point of seeming aloof, which infuriates Ruby further. "Keystone Motel" also reveals that their relationship can be strained at times due to Sapphire's precognition, causing her to be preoccupied with the outcome of events, instead of the events as they happen. This caused them some degree of conflict throughout the episode, as Ruby was angry that Sapphire was so willing to forgive Pearl after manipulating them and that Sapphire seemed to dismiss her feelings. They share a great concern for Steven, which ultimately leads them to talk about and resolve their conflict at the end of the episode, and they form Garnet once more.
Sapphire has shown to be somewhat emotionally dependent and centered on Ruby, constantly focusing on and flirting with her during "Hit the Diamond" even saying that Ruby is all she wants to look at, and completely breaking down when she thinks Ruby is gone and their relationship has ended. It is shown in "That Will Be All" that Ruby can easily calm down Sapphire when she is nervous and literally freezing up by simply holding her hand. In the episode "The Question" Ruby asked Sapphire to marry her, to which she responded saying, "Of course." The two got married in "Reunited."
But we made him feel... like it was his fault.
Sapphire made less of an intent to hide her identity from Steven than Ruby but still did not tell him she was part of Garnet, as her and Ruby's intent was to properly introduce themselves to Steven on his birthday. She, along with Ruby, cares for Steven greatly, and when Steven asked if he made a good first impression, Garnet assured him that both Ruby and Sapphire already loved him. She even cried over him, along with Ruby, as they saved him from suffocating in space in "Bubbled". She can seem somewhat cold toward him when under stress, as she shot down his idea to talk things over with Ruby in "Keystone Motel" without even hearing him out. Despite this, she was still willing to watch TV with him, even using her future vision to see what channel he would like. After realizing that Steven felt like it was all his fault that Garnet and Pearl were fighting, Sapphire felt incredibly guilty. Like Garnet, Sapphire grew to respect Steven's mature attitude and listened to his thoughts about Pink Diamond.
She lied to us! She lied about everything! She held our hands, looked us right in the eyes, and told us to never question who we are as Garnet. We never questioned ourselves, or her!
|—"Now We're Only Falling Apart"|
Like most of the Crystal Gems, Sapphire greatly respected Rose Quartz as a leader and friend. She also deeply trusted Rose to the point of never questioning her judgment, owing to her sustained existence as Garnet to Rose. Upon the discovery that Rose was actually the rebellion's mortal enemy Pink Diamond in "A Single Pale Rose" and "Now We're Only Falling Apart", Sapphire felt deeply manipulated and betrayed, believing she could have known the truth with her powers, and cursing herself for never second-guessing her, even going so far as to separate from Ruby under the belief that their relationship was based on a lie. After Pearl explained Rose's true intentions to her, however, Sapphire regained some peace of mind over Rose's actions, understanding that their leader was inspired by her eventual followers and not using them.
Oh, Pearl! How will I ever get her back?!
|—Sapphire and Pearl sobbing over Ruby in "What's Your Problem?"|
During "Keystone Motel", Sapphire is more willing to forgive Pearl's trickery regarding the Communication Hub. In the episode "Hit the Diamond", Pearl seems delighted to see Ruby and Sapphire when they unfuse from Garnet. In the episodes "Now We're Only Falling Apart" and "What's Your Problem?", Pearl and Sapphire share a lot of individual interaction. In the former, Pearl willingly explains the backstory of Rose to Sapphire, who is furious over the revelation. Sapphire then finds out Rose was following their example, claiming Pearl "swept Rose off her feet." In the latter episode, Pearl attempts to comfort a crying Sapphire but ends up crying with Sapphire herself. In "The Question", Pearl is briefly seen comforting Sapphire before Steven enters the Beach House.
Why don't you guys take all this into the temple?
|—Amethyst, "What's Your Problem?"|
Of course she was a Diamond. What a long road she took to torture us all like this...
|—"Now We're Only Falling Apart"|
My diamond, I have arrived.
Sapphire was once a subordinate of Blue Diamond, as well as an aristocrat in her court. Blue Diamond valued Sapphire highly due to her unique power to see into the future. After accidentally fusing with Ruby into Garnet, Sapphire rebelled against her superior to save Ruby and formally defected to the side of the Crystal Gems. As seen in "Steven's Dream", Sapphire is afraid to face her former superior again, fearful she would recognize her. In "That Will Be All", Blue Diamond does not seem to recognize her in the bubbled room. However when Blue Diamond tells the group that she never sent a Sapphire to Earth, Sapphire freezes up, reigniting her fear until Ruby holds her hand for comfort. In "Reunited", Blue Diamond recognizes Garnet as the fusion who disrupted her court.
Everything we were running from, she was right there all along...using us for her little war...smiling at us with those knowing eyes... Making me believe in a better future that I couldn't see, because it wasn't real, and now here we are, our friends, shattered, and corrupted...of course she was a Diamond. What a long road she took to torture us all like this...

- According to an interview with Rebecca Sugar, Sapphire did not always have one eye in her pre-show development.
- Sapphire's dress resembles a dirndl, a traditional women's outfit from Bavaria, Germany.
- Garnet's three eyes are a combination of one of Ruby's two eyes and Sapphire's one eye, with the third being mixed between the colors of both of their eyes.
- Along with other Sapphires,the Pebbles, Aquamarine, Jasper, Snowflake Obsidian and the Rutile Twins, she appears to lack a nose.
- As seen in "Hit the Diamond", Sapphire has two legs like all singular Gems. This fact was disputed among fans prior to the episode, due to the long skirt of her standard outfit and
her predilection for levitation.
- Neither Sapphire nor Ruby has a star or a diamond on their outfits. However, when fused with Ruby, Garnet has a star on her chest.
- Sapphire's instrument has been confirmed to be "a gentle synth pad." In addition, her instrument was reverse-engineered from Garnet's to be shown in "Keystone Motel".
- Sapphire and Ruby are both named after varieties of corundum (crystalline aluminum oxide, chemical formula Al2O3).
- The name "Sapphy" (as in "Laughy Sapphy," Ruby's pet name for Sapphire) is very similar to the word "sapphic." In the most specific sense, "sapphic" means "pertaining to Sappho," the name of a famous female poet in Ancient Greece. The word also can be used to mean "a woman attracted to women", which describes not only the historic Sappho but also both Ruby and Sapphire in their romantic relationship together.
- However, the word "sapphic" is now relatively archaic in the English language. The more common word with the same definition today is "lesbian," originally used in allusion to Sappho herself because she came from the Greek island of Lesbos whose geographical natives are called "Lesbians."
- Sapphire's cryokinesis – lowering the temperature directly opposes Ruby's pyrokinesis – raising the temperature, which could represent hers and Ruby's opposite reactions to stress.
- In "Keystone Motel", Sapphire's attitude could be a reference to her Thermo-Regulation powers. For instance, she "freezes Ruby out" (literally) and acts both cold and distant toward Ruby and Steven.
- Out of all the Crystal Gems, Sapphire has personally engaged in combat the least. This may be because Sapphires are made to be fancy, diplomatic court members.
- According to Matt Burnett, Sapphire probably doesn't have a weapon.
- In "The Answer" and "Keystone Motel", Sapphire's philosophy toward future vision seemed to be based on Hard Determinism, the idea that fate is always in control and that free-will is just an illusion. This is deeply in contrast to Garnet's philosophy of Soft Determinism, the idea that fate grants options in the exercise of free-will.
- In "Made of Honor", Sapphire appears to have a fondness for dolphins, enough so to ask for dolphins to be depicted on her and Ruby's wedding invitations.
- Her relationship with Ruby is based on Ian Jones-Quartey and Rebecca Sugar's relationship.
- "Reunited" inverted Sapphire and Ruby's usual appearances, with the masculine appearing Ruby wearing a wedding dress and the feminine Sapphire wearing a Tuxedo.
- During times of great disharmony in opinion, she and Ruby can talk to each other individually through Garnet, as shown in "Keeping it Together" and "Keystone Motel".
- The first hint of Sapphire along with Ruby was in the episode "Together Breakfast" when Garnet opens the door to the Burning Room. When she does that, two lines – one light red, the other a darker shade of red – coming from two blue and red circles, meet the star and then continue down when they connect, a clear reference to Garnet being a fusion.
- Before her introduction, Sapphire had a small cameo in "Fusion Cuisine" when the Gems unfused from Alexandrite, but she and Ruby quickly fused to keep their existence a secret, intending to reveal their existence during Steven's birthday.
- In the extended theme song, Sapphire is gracefully holding her hands together, interlocking her fingers. This shows that she is calm, graceful and passionate while Ruby is shown to be cracking or holding her knuckles, a sign of toughness or that she is ready to fight. On the other hand, Ruby seems calmer than expected from her and Sapphire more upbeat than usual, indicating that being Garnet brings balance to both of their personalities.
- Sapphire possibly has her own room in the Crystal Temple, as the Temple Gate has a blue gemstone and a red gemstone that Garnet opens simultaneously.
- "Hit the Diamond" marks Sapphire and Ruby's first appearance outside of a StevenBomb.
- Throughout history, sapphire has symbolized truth, sincerity, and loyalty.
- Sapphire has some similarities to the character Elsa from the movie Frozen. They are both calm, poised, intelligent, and noble figures who possess cryokinetic powers shown when their emotions run out of control. They also both wear blue dresses.
|Sapphire's gemstone is located on the palm of her right hand, featuring a triangular facet. The front and back are symmetrical. It has a light blue ring around it, which is usually hidden inside her body unless she is regenerating. It is an octahedron, specifically a truncated trigonal dipyramid.|
