Stunning Sapphire: Discover September’s Birthstone

Monarch Jewelry is known for our colored gemstone jewelry. This month, we’re going to talk about one of the most popular blue gemstones, the sapphire. While it’s commonly known that Sapphire is September’s birthstone, but it’s also used to celebrate the 10th and 45th wedding anniversaries, so if you’re looking for a gift for a September baby or one of these milestone anniversaries, you’re in luck!

A Symbol of Nobility, Truth & Faithfulness
Sapphire Gemstone

Sapphires are one of the four precious gemstones. Along with diamonds, emeralds, and rubies, they have been the gem of choice for royalty, designers, and fashion lovers throughout time. Sapphires occur in nature in a variety of blues, from the deep intense indigo they’re known for through lighter shades of royal blue and paler blues. Though, the very best sapphires have a dark blue color! Sapphires can also be pink. Pink sapphires are very popular in fashion and bridal jewelry.

Sapphires are extremely durable stones. They stand up to regular wear on a daily basis without chipping or getting damaged easily. Sapphires look gorgeous when set in white gold, silver, platinum and yellow gold. Along with contemporary designer looks, sapphire lovers will want to check our Estate Jewelry cases – spectacular examples of sapphire jewelry show up regularly!

Sapphire: A Top Choice for Unique Engagement Rings

In 1981, Prince Charles captured the world’s attention when he gave Lady Diana Spencer a large sapphire engagement ring. Since that time, sapphires have taken a starring role in many engagement rings, either as the center stone or as accent stones for a diamond. Sapphire engagement rings are available from many designers and can also be custom designed here in our Winter Park jewelry store. The fervor for sapphire engagement rings surged again when Prince William presented Kate Middleton with the sapphire ring his mother wore – proof that some styles can truly stand the test of time.
