quality workmanship partnered with customer service.

Traditional Birthstone for September is the Sapphire
The color blue holds an endless fascination, from the high dome of the sky to the oceans that
cover two-thirds of the globes surface, blue literally surrounds us. When seen from space, the
earth is revealed as a shimmering blue planet. Its little wonder then that the breathtaking blue
of Sapphire has captured mans imagination from the beginning. Ranging from the deepest
midnight to brilliant cornflower blue. Sapphires have long been prized for their intense
The ancients believed that Blue Sapphire (holding in its depths the power of sea & sky) had influence
over the spirit world. Also among its reputed powers was the ability to make peace between
warring parties. The calming influence of blue has also made it an enduring symbol for loyalty
and trust, one reason that women around the world choose Sapphire for their engagement rings.
Sapphire (in all its rainbow of colors) is the gem given to those born in September and to those
born under the sign of Aquarius. Those who celebrate their 5th, 7th, 10th, and 45th wedding
anniversary find the brilliant blue color of Sapphire makes the perfect gift to represent faith
and steadfast commitment of their relationship.
Many people believe that the darker the color the more valuable the gem. In many
instances, this is not the case. Sapphire is one such example where the best and most
valuable color is a mid-toned hue. In the case of Blue Sapphire it is the
vibrant "cornflower" color that is most prized.
Several countries produce gem quality Sapphires including the United States, Asia, Australia and East Africa.
Our Blue Sapphire is mined primarily in East Africa.
What ever the reason, the Sapphire is always a fabulous fashion choice
