The brilliant, familiar blue of September’s birthstone brings to mind a sense of sophistication and timelessness, providing the perfect accent to any jewelry design. Associated with spiritual enlightenment, truth and inner peace, the Sapphire can help make your dreams become a reality. In 1981, Lady Diana Spencer received one of the most famous Sapphires, set in a Diamond-studded ring. While precious few of us can boast any claim to royalty, we have the ability to carry a little bit of noble beauty with a romantic, polished Sapphire on hand.

Closely related to Rubies as a variety of corundum, Sapphires come in many different colors, scattered around the world. Places such as Thailand, Madagascar and eastern Australia are home to abundant Sapphire deposits. Some of the highest quality Sapphires come from Kashmir in India.

Some Sapphires can even be gray, black or colorless. The Star Sapphire displays whitish, golden tendrils, and the Color Change Sapphire’s colors vary depending on the lighting. The rare Padparadscha is a highly valuable pink-orange Sapphire, which derives its name from the Sinhalese word for “lotus blossom.”

Sapphires also symbolize the fifth and twenty-third anniversaries, so make sure to surprise your loved one with a stunning Sapphire jewel for your special day. Browse our beautiful collection of couple’s jewelry, including a wide array of rings, bracelets and necklaces.
