The holidays are coming early at The Natural Sapphire Company (TheNaturalSapphireCompany.com). Starting November 21st, it will be raining sapphires as their annual Holiday Sale season begins.
“Sapphire rings have been extremely popular in 2011 since Prince William and Kate Middleton were engaged with an oval blue sapphire engagement ring last November. The holiday sale season will be an opportunity for shoppers to save on all of our sapphire jewelry, not just sapphire engagement rings,” stated Michael Arnstein, 4th generation sapphire specialist and company CEO.
Sapphire jewelry is very durable, as sapphires are the second hardest gemstone behind diamonds. Sapphire jewelry gifts last a lifetime, and sapphires and sapphire jewelry continue to be very popular presents for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. Rubies are also extremely popular holiday gifts. In gemological terms, rubies and sapphires are composed of the same mineral, corundum. The difference between the two gemstones is based on color. A red piece of corundum is always a ruby. A piece of corundum in any other color except red is considered a sapphire. Red rubies and blue sapphires are festive holiday colors and compliment the bright lights of the season.
Engagement rings, as we know them today, became popular in the middle ages amongst royal and wealthy families. Sapphires and other colored gemstones were all used in these early symbols of betrothal. Sapphire engagement rings were favored because they symbolized romantic love, truth, and commitment. We welcome our customers to continue this beautiful tradition this season!
