- Blue - Sapphire's Fairy Partner.
- Midorikusa Emerald - One of Sapphire’s best friends. Sapphire lives right next doors to Emerald, so they’ve known each other since they were very young. The two don’t even remember when they first met. Emerald always tries to get Sapphire over her own stubbornness.
- Shirosora Diamond - Sapphire’s second childhood friend. Unlike how it was with Emerlad, Sapphire didn’t know Diamond from the very beginning. They first met when the three girls were only four. Emerald and Sapphire were playing with their favorite ball when it accidently landed in the Shirosora’s garden. So the two went to get the ball back and rang the doorbell. Sapphire wanted to play with Diamond then too and so they became friends.
- Akahane Ruby - Ruby and Sapphire are very good friends. They might have just become friends because they are in a Pretty Cure team, but they have really grown to each other.

Sapphire would also challenge Ruby to a basketball match, even if she would lose, just to have some fun together.
- Kiishi Topaz - Topaz is a good friend of Sapphire. Both share their love for western languages, especially English, even though Topaz is hardly as good in it as Sapphire. They first, actually, met when the "Shiro students" had to move to the Nijiiro Private Middle School due to the renovating at their school. When Crimson fought against the two Karahowas, Topaz tried to get to her and help her. However, Sapphire told her to stay inside since it’s too dangerous out there.

For example both were raised with music. Sapphire also was very impressed that Amber was able to play the piano.

- Murasakiiro Amethyst - Sapphire has actually the kind of personality which Amethyst is used to. Not too childish, to too cheery, not too crazy. However, she's not a fan of Sapphire not thinking before talking or acting. But that's fine as long as she doesn't come off as a typical girl-y.
- Low - Sapphire didn't trust Low at all at the beginning and always tried to "protect" Diamond from him. And even after she started trusting him, she likes to tease him. The two keep teasing each other or even call each other by special nicknames. However, their teasing sometimes becomes a arugment where Diamond has to try to calm them two down.
Aomizu (青水?) - Aomizu comes from Ao (青?) meaning "blue", "blue color" or even "green color", combined with Mizu (水?) meaning "water, "cold/fresh water", "liquid" or "a fluid". So Aomizu basically means "blue water" or "blue colored fluid". All in all, her name is a reference to her alter ego, Cure Azure, who holds the power of blue colored water.
Sapphire (サファイア?) - Sapphire is a gemstone, it is typically blue in color. The word "sapphire" was borrowed from the Old French "saphir", which came from the Latin "sapphir", "sappir" or "sapphīrus". Both versions originally came from the Ancient Greek sáppheiros, which means "precious stone, gem" or the Sanskrit śanipriya, which can loosely be translated to "dark-colored stone", while having the literal meaning "dear to Saturn". Sapphire is also the birthstone for September.
Cure Azure (キュアアズール?) - Her Cure alias is based on the given name Azure, which comes from the English word that means "sky blue". It is ultimately from Persian lajvard meaning "azure, lapis lazuli".
Cat Sapphire Cheshire Cat (キャット・サファイア・チェシャ猫?) - The name Sapphire took, and probably gave herself, during Emerald's adventures in Wonderland. The name is coming from the word "cat", her name and the name of the Cheshire Cat, appearing in the real Alice.
Sapphire-hime (サファイア姫 Safaia hime?) or Sapphy-hime (サフィー姫 Safī hime?) - Sapphire was called that way while FairySina drew her design for Sky Pretty Cure episode 30. Later it was also used in the episode by the others to tease Sapphire. It was mostly used by Low. Apparently Sapphire didn't like being called that way.
