The heavenly birthstone for September and chosen gem commemorating the 5th and 45th wedding anniversaries.
September babies...you are one lucky group! Sapphires are one of the big three in colored gemstones — the other two being Emerald and Ruby. This vibrant gem was first discovered in Kashmir around 1881 following a landslide in the Himalayas, but today it is found all over the world in mines of Australia, Thailand, Cambodia, Madagascar and the United States (mainly Montana), and among other countries in Asia and Africa. For centuries, Sapphires have been sought after for its diamond-like hardness and durability as well as its stunning color range.
One of our absolute favorite pieces that shows the Sapphire color range is Alex Sepkus's signature Candy ring. Accented by white diamonds, this ring is sure to please any September baby!
We've been swooning over our latest LA designer, Emily Wheeler and her ultra-sleek collection. Her Split Diamond Earrings with Pink Sapphires bring a timeless yet edgy sophistication and instant confidence whether dressed up for a date night out or down with a cozy knit sweater.
We can't talk about Sapphires without highlighting the Erika Winters Mariana Ring that features a 1.79ct untreated, piercing Blue Sapphire set in icy Platinum. With Sapphires, it is common to see heat treatments to enhance their color. Being untreated, this ring is a rare showstopper, allowing the wearer to peek into the striking inclusions and striations of a natural sapphire.
We love the electric palettes of Lord Jewelry. This 18k gold handmade chain with rose cut sapphires and their signature vibrant enamel is the perfect piece to introduce color to a neutral fall look and create effortless layers.
Keep things simple and bright as we transition from summer to fall. The Green Sapphire studs from NY designer, Lauren K is the color to wear as an everyday stud or compliment a dangling earring.
This fall we will see polished metals and rainbow statements. But if you're more timeless with your statements this petite Precious Amulet from Temple St Clair with blue sapphire, emerald and ruby instantly elevates any outfit you'll wear year round as a forever keepsake.
Sapphires are just behind diamonds in hardness, ranking 9 on the Mohs scale. It has excellent toughness and no cleavage, which is a tendency to break when struck. This makes it a great choice for everyday jewelry and heirlooms.
Before you buy your sapphire, ask if it is treated. The September birthstone is often treated to improve its color or clarity. Most commonly, we see heat treatments which bring out beautiful hues. Note, though, if your sapphire is fracture-filled or dyed, it can be damaged by even mild acids like lemon juice.
Warm, soapy water and a soft bristle brush is always safe for a little sprucing up. For deeper cleanings we would love to have you visit our studio and check in on its condition.
