Sapphires are a perfect gift for that September birthday, but they are also ideal for a unique engagement ring
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2012
Sapphire is the birthstone for September and in celebration of that, a new and handmade sapphire jewelry collection will be arriving at San Francisco’s custom jewelry store, Union Street Goldsmith. Clients can show their loyalty and commitment--the meaning of the sapphire--to their significant other with a lovely sapphire ring or pendant. These gorgeous gemstones are a great colored stone option for everyday wear because of how hard they are.
"Sapphires are a perfect gift for that September birthday, but they are also ideal for a unique engagement ring. My sapphire wedding set, designed by Glenda Queen, gets compliments all the time on its beautiful color and original design," Summer Anderson, graduate gemologist of Union Street Goldsmith, said.
Union Street Goldsmith’s huge collection of sapphire jewelry covers price ranges from about $350 up to $20,000. The sapphires come set in platinum; rose, white and yellow gold; or sterling silver.
“We are also happy to make you a custom sapphire piece or reset your sapphires into a new design that you will love,” Anderson said.
Sapphires are most commonly known for their beautiful blue hews, but they are also available in almost every other color or colorless. A little known fact about sapphire is that it is structurally and chemically the same gemstone as Ruby. They are both a very durable mineral named corundum.
