The Beauty of Sapphires
Did you know that the birthstone for the month of September is the sapphire? The scientific name for this popular gem is Corundum. They can be found in an array of colors, but when the corundum is red, we have what’s known as a Ruby.
Sapphires are known for their beautiful deep blue color, but did you know they can also be found in yellow, green, pink, and purple colors? Orange/Pink sapphires are known as Padparahdascha Sapphires.
The most valuable of sapphires come from Kashmir and Burma, but sapphires are also found in Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Australia.
This Tiffany & Co. diamond and sapphire ring creates accents to this stunning round diamond. The contrast of the deep blue color between the white center stone makes the diamond “pop”.
This Art Deco sapphire and diamond ring is set in a unique mounting with small rubies and diamonds. The combination with diamond, and ruby presents a unique and eye catching piece.
Our of our personal favorites, is the Van Cleef & Arpels sapphire and diamond ring. Made in the 1950s, a ring such as this is rare. Holding a 19-carat natural sapphire, the ring contains approximately 7 carats of diamonds. It’s style is similar to that of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, and now, to Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.
This Tiffany & Co. bracelet is still produced today in many different versions– and it is safe to say, this simple line design will never go out of style. Worn alone or stacked with bracelets of a similar style, it’s beauty is timeless.
Whether worn as a bracelet, earrings, ring, or as any other piece of jewelry, the sapphire is sure to make a lasting impression.
