It’s September, which means it’s all about the one and only Sapphire gemstone! It’s not only the sole birthstone for September, but it’s also the gift to give your loved one the 5th and 45th wedding anniversaries! Sapphires are just one down on the hardness scale next to diamonds, making them an ideal choice to wear everyday. Here is our list of the top 5 ways to wear this stunning gemstone!
TOP 5 WAYS TO WEAR SAPPHIRES
#1 In an engagement ring
There are many ways to wear a Sapphire, but one of the most popular ways is in an engagement ring! Feature the Sapphire in the center or add just a touch on the sides for a great non-traditional look. Sapphires are the best stone to use in an engagement ring other than a diamond because of its incredible durability.
#2 during your wedding
Surprise the bride with “Something Blue!” Wear Sapphire earrings during your wedding and then time and time again after the wedding. We like to keep it simplistic with an elegant diamond halo. Wearing a Sapphire symbolizes faithfulness and sincerity, which is perfect for your special day!
#3 Wear it bold
Go big or go home! Wear a bold bracelet to really show off the incredible color Sapphire has to offer. If you love being bold, wear a show stopper ring to let people know you mean business.
#4 change colors with the seasons
The great thing about Sapphires is that they come in just about every color, except for red! With so many amazing choices, it makes for an easy transition into changing colors with the seasons. For Spring, wear a soft yellow Sapphire, during the Summer, go for a bright pink, when Fall rolls around, switch to a warm orange Sapphire and when Winter hits, go for the cool blue Sapphire!

I had been searching for a specific type of sapphire for nearly ten years, and just couldn’t find a jeweler that had the rare stone in stock.
I, eventually, came to Underwood’s and was greeted by their lovely and intelligent staff.
I had asked if this rare stone might be in their inventory and was excited to find out that they indeed had a decently large twelve-ray black star sapphire of genuine and impeccable quality. Absolutely stunning!!!
After months of making reasonable payments on the sapphire, I am now a proud owner of the gem of my dreams! What’s even better? Becky, Underwood’s talented Custom Jewelry Designer, is woework with me to create the perfect rose gold ring setting for my precious gem.
Ultimately, I am admirably pleased with Underwood’s service and selection. A big thanks from a now “customer for life” client!
HANDS DOWN AMAZING!!
My boyfriend and I went in there to get an idea on engagement rings after being all over town looking. Let me tell you this places crushed everyone else the minute I walked in the door! Everyone was so sweet and when we told them we were just looking instead of writing us off Taylor pulled us to the engagement rings and started showing us different things and the more I told her I liked she started pulling other things for me to look at. She even broke down all the different diamonds to my boyfriend for him to understand better. She even made me a wishlist for the rings I liked and gave my boyfriend her card with my favorite rings information on it including the different payment options. Long story short I found the ring I wanted and everyone was absolutely amazing and so kind to us and will for sure be getting all my other jewlery from them and Taylor!
Today I received the most splendid uniquely designed vintage inspired ring from Undetwood’s Jewelry. It was a pleasure working with Becki, their gifted designer. The process of coming up with my heirloom ring was most interactive and each meeting with the designer was interesting, educational and
productive. Having my mom’s diamond solitaire and two diamond earrings reset in 18 K gold resulted in a way to keep her close to me forever, reminding me to cherish the past, present and future moments in my life.
