Sapphires – The September Gem of Wisdom

September 1, 2016

September is the month of Sapphires. Grand Jewelers adores sapphires and wants our customers to know more about this beautiful gem. Known commonly as a deep blue stone, sapphires can actually come in any color but red (red sapphires are actually rubies). A part of the corundum family, the finest selection of sapphires is known to be found in Kashmir. September is a time to celebrate a loved one who embodies the qualities of a sapphire with rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants and more featuring these precious gems.

Some of the most well known sapphires are those worn by the royal family. Both Kate Middleton and Princess Diana had engagement rings holding royal blue sapphires. Generally, sapphires are a stone of wisdom. Bringing their wearer wisdom of fidelity, spirituality, integrity, intuition, and resolve, sapphires are beautiful gems unlike any other. A representation of resilience and prosperity, sapphire jewelry can be worn as a talisman of maturity and elegance.

Treasured since the time of the ancient Romans as a perfect gem for jewelry, sapphires develop their color from the combination of corundum with iron, titanium, and chromium. Sapphires score a 9 out of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, making these gems as physically tough as they are symbolically resilient. Due to this sturdiness, sapphires are the perfect gem to wear more often, as they are more difficult to damage. Finally, one of the most amazing sapphires is the color change sapphire. Depending on the way in which light hits the color change sapphire, the color it exhibits will change, for example, from blue to purple.

Sapphire jewelry makes for an excellent gift for one and all. Rings, bracelets, pendants and more present sapphires in all the sophistication they deserve. Buying a sapphire for a loved one born in the month of September shows them the love and respect you hold for them and highlights all the grace they reveal. Sapphires are also known as representations of 5th and 45th anniversaries. Give the one you love a sapphire surrounded with classic yellow, or white gold, diamonds, or other precious metals and gems to express the passion of your relationship. At your 45th anniversary, use a sapphire to show the wisdom you have learned over the years and the strength of your love.

Take a look at each of the sapphire pieces of jewelry we have at Grand Jewelers to find the best way to celebrate this September with a loved one.
