This article is about the Gem type. You may be looking for another Sapphire or the Crystal Gem.

Sapphires are rare aristocratic Gems used to see the future. In addition to their abilities as prophets, they have ice powers and can levitate. All known Sapphires have been voiced by Erica Luttrell.

Together Alone 282.png

Sapphires were high ranking Gems. Several Sapphires attended the Era 3 Ball. Sapphires were also commonly flanked by several Ruby guards.

Primarily, Sapphires use their future vision to assure other Gems of the future's certainty, since they can only see one possible future.

Physical Characteristics 

Sapphires are short Gems with round faces and one singular eye. Sapphires all wear ballgowns with poofy sleeves and elbow length gloves, although the additional details on their gowns can vary between them. Sapphires can have many different hairstyles, but one common feature is that they all have their eye covered by their hair regardless of what way it is styled.

While mostly shown in shades of blue, different colored Sapphires can exist, with orange Sapphires (Padparadschas) being noted by Garnet as especially rare.

Other Sapphires
