With the summer quickly wrapping up, and Fall just around the corner, I thought now would be a good time to put the spotlight on Sapphires, considering it is the birthstone of September.
Rare, exceptionally durable, and available in a very wide range of colors, sapphires are probably one of the most versatile gemstones available. Ranging in price from just a few hundred dollars to earth shattering and historical auction-house prices, sapphires can be available to most who seek out these beauties, no matter the budget. Although one of the more expensive gemstones available, that doesn’t mean you have to pay a small fortune for one that suits your fancy. From vivid royal and corn flower blues to vibrant purples and pinks and even spectacular greens, yellows and oranges, sapphires have a wide range of color that is sure to please, no matter what your taste might be. But where does one start?
