There’s certainly an art to buying the perfect gift for someone you love, and this remains true for sapphires.
The perfect present in all its forms, shapes, and colours, sapphires are a truly magical gemstone, and can be worn in rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and more. Read on to discover more about the art of sapphire jewellery gifting.
Sapphires: a Jewellery Gift with Meaning
Every gemstone has a meaning, whether you’re using them as birthstones or thinking about their spiritual significance. With regards to sapphires, these gemstones hold great meaning - historically, spiritually, and astrologically.
Historically sapphires have held an important place in society: ancient Persian rulers believed that the sky was painted blue by the reflection of sapphires. The theme of heaven and the sky has been intrinsically linked with sapphires throughout time, with the Catholic church also thinking that the stone was related to holiness. In the Royal Family, Kings have worn chains adorned with blue sapphires to attract divine favour and the elites of ancient Greece and Rome wore them to protect their loved ones from harm. Thus giving the gift of a blue sapphire would serve many purposes such as good luck and protection.
Sapphires in general hold great astrological meaning: sapphire derives from an association with the planet Saturn. Many believe that the gemstone is ruled by the planet, so if your birthday relates to Saturn in any way, you’ll benefit immensely from wearing this stone. Traditionally, sapphires are the stone for the month of September, but Saturn can affect many different months astrologically, so be sure to look up whether your gift will hold any great power to the wearer in this light.
Finally, sapphires are also the gemstone for a fifth-year wedding anniversary present: so if this is a gift to celebrate this occasion - a huge congratulations to you! We hope that this gift symbolises your happy relationship and signifies many more happy years to come.
Sapphires come in many Beautiful Colours and Hues
Traditionally many think of the sapphire as a beautiful blue gemstone, and while this is certainly true, this stone is not limited to just one colour.
Sapphires are truly unique in the fact that they are in many different colours and hues: from the deepest velvet green to a pastel lilac, pretty in pink, and gorgeous gold, sapphires come in every colour imaginable. It’s what makes them such a fantastic gift, as you can buy them in your loved ones’ favourite colour and be sure it’s a present they’ll love.
Each colour comes with its own special meaning, highlighted below:
- Orange sapphires: love and creation
- Violet sapphires: oneness and peace
- Pink sapphires: love and forgiveness.
- Blue sapphires: love, trust, loyalty, and commitment
- White sapphires: wisdom, strength, and communication
- Green sapphires: fidelity and integrity
Perhaps decide on a gift based on your loved ones’ favourite colour, or go deeper and choose one with a meaning that will speak to their soul. Either way, it’ll be the most beautiful and thoughtful gift.
