Sapphires

 Sapphire is the birthstone for September and the gem of the 5th and 45th anniversaries.

A distinctive and vibrant choice, sapphires have been valued for their vivid color and durability for centuries. Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. They come in violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and intermediate hues. Some stones exhibit the phenomenon known as color change, most often going from blue in daylight or fluorescent lighting to purple under incandescent light. Sapphires can even be gray, black, or brown.

Kashmir: Intensely saturated and velvety, rare sapphires from Kashmir set the standard for blue.

Royal Blue: The world’s most famous engagement ring: Kate Middleton’s and Princess Diana’s sapphire.

Padparadscha: A rare and valuable pinkish-orange sapphire named from the Sinhalese for lotus blossom.

Why We Love This Gemstone:

 
Vivid and Saturated - Sapphire’s blue can be vivid and saturated, like it’s lit from within. 
Durable -  It’s so durable, synthetic sapphire is used for the windows of supermarket scanners and spacecraft.
Delicate Silk - Sapphire often contains delicate intersecting needles of rutile that gemologists call silk.
