Well hello there, September!
Star of treasured family heirlooms and engagement rings, birthstone pendants, and everyday stud earrings. Sapphire is September’s birthstone. Sapphires have adorned royalty for centuries. The gemstone was thought to attract wealth and protect its owner from envy and harm.
Sapphire is a form of aluminium oxide also known as corundum, one of the hardest known minerals after diamond. This makes them a great alternative for unique wedding and engagement rings. Sapphires have long been associated with romance and are a traditional gift for 45th wedding anniversaries. Because sapphires are traditionally associated with a rich blue colour, many people don’t realise that natural sapphires come in nearly every colour of the rainbow. The only colour they don’t come in is red. When a gem from the corundum family is red, they are classified as Rubies.
We have seen a rise in popularity in Australia of brides-to-be choosing sapphires for their feature stone in their engagement ring. The cut and style of your feature sapphire can help make your engagement ring the timeless masterpiece that it deserves to be.
A custom made engagement ring we finished this year featured a stunning 4.14ct emerald cut Ceylon Sapphire flanked with two perfect pear cut diamonds. Highlighting the sapphire’s natural beauty to make a statement that will truly last forever.
One style of engagement ring which is gathering popularity is the halo style. Many brides-to-be are incorporating sapphires into halo styles and creating stunning engagement rings as a result. The halo style allows for diamonds to compliment your feature stone, and make for a timeless piece.
