Sapphires are the birthstones of September. This rich, vibrant blue stone represents honesty and loyalty. For that reason, they’re also a very common stone used for engagements. Sapphire engagement rings saw a huge boost in sales thanks to the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton, whose ring once belonged to Princess Diana. The one-of-a-kind ring features an oval sapphire, surrounded by a halo of diamonds. This classic design and style is popular today due to its timeless look that will never go out of style. Plus, who doesn’t want to look like a princess? Our collection of sapphire rings includes replicas of this famous ring, as well as many other styles that give the fresh and peaceful feeling.
In addition to the future queen of England, many other notable people have worn statement sapphires. Another well-known sapphire reference is the “Heart of the Ocean” sapphire necklace worn by Rose in the blockbuster movie, “Titanic.” Today, the popularity of that pendant lives on through all of the women who wear a similar style. Our sapphire necklace is surrounded by diamonds, giving a look that spans generations and would make a beautiful piece to hand down within families.
Sapphires make beautiful pieces of jewelry, including rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more. Solitaire studs are a great choice for daily wear, while unique dangle earrings add a little flair to a dressier look. Sapphires pair well with many other colors, including diamonds and more. For a complementary look, try pieces that combine blue and yellow stones together, like these drop earrings. As opposite colors on the color wheel, blue and yellow create a harmonizing look that just “works.”
Sapphires are naturally found in a rainbow of colors, including yellow, pink, white, and violet. However, it is the traditional deep blue color that is the beloved stone for women around the world. They are very hard stones, measuring a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale, which makes them appropriate for many jewelry applications, especially rings that are worn frequently, such as engagement or wedding rings.
Blue stands out as a favorite color for many women, which is why sapphires are a common choice for jewelry. Even though it is the birthstone for September, this gem is worn by all women due to its rich color, powerful symbolism, and link to nobility. The connection to mental health makes sapphires a popular choice, as it is said to improve mental clarity, aid in focus, and keeping out negative thoughts.
