Amethyst might be the birthstone of February. But this past month, we couldn’t help but notice our online auction house was sparkling with another colored stone: sapphires.
One of the “big three” gemstones alongside ruby and emerald, the blue stone has been a favorite for both jewelry designers and wearers for centuries. Just like rubies, the September birthstone belongs to the corundum family. While most valuable sapphires are blue, they can be also found in other colors like violet, green, yellow, orange, pink and purple. They are associated with the values of devotion, honesty, loyalty, and the faith in the fulfillment of one’s destiny.
Even though diamond and blue sapphire jewelry has always been a classic in designer collections, the blue stone has recently made a comeback as a trending choice for engagement rings. Perhaps one of the most famous sapphire jewels is Princess Diana’s antique-style ring, worn today by the Duchess of Cambridge.
But even the most stunning jewelry can gather dust in a drawer for years if it no longer fits its owner’s taste. And that’s where we come in to help our clients sell their valuable items in a secure and hassle-free way.
