Happy Autumn, ladies!
With summer having come to a close and the brisker months fast approaching, it’s time to break out the cooler hues. A fan favorite for fall and winter is the Sapphire, the birthstone of September.
Sapphires (translating to “blue” in Greek) are often heralded as the ultimate blue gemstone, and since ancient times have been synonymous with the promise of honest, loyalty, purity, and trust. Varying greatly in tone, transparency, and overall appearance, sapphires range from the patchy periwinkle of an autumnal sky obstructed by tendrils of clouds to the highly-saturated cerulean of a clear winter's evening.
One of the most popular engagement stones today, there is a sapphire for every woman, everywhere, whether it be a symbol of the lifelong commitment of marriage or simply the perfect birthday or holiday gift to celebrate your favorite Sagittarius! Sapphire jewelry is the perfect accessory to get this season started off right, adding a touch of sparkle to a winter wonderland wedding and crisp fall sweater-weather day alike!
Sapphires not your selection? Do not despair! Lapis Lazuli is the secondary stone of September, however, it is anything but second best. Don’t Lazu-Loose out on these beauties, a relatively unknown and under-appreciated alternative (or addition!) to the Sapphire in your winter jewelry wardrobe!
