Stunning blue sapphires are the birthstone for September and also the 5th and 75th-anniversary gemstones. These dazzling gemstones can be worn any time of year and are favorites here at Isbell Jewelers! Today’s blog is highlighting our favorite sapphire jewelry and the best ways to wear it!
Blue Sapphire Jewelry and Choice of Metal
The cool blue tones of sapphire gemstones pair beautifully with cooler metals such as platinum, white gold, and silver. You will find gorgeous rings, pendants, bracelets, and earrings most often with this combination of metal and gemstone. Sapphires set in white gold or platinum are definitely a favorite at Isbell Jewelers!
If you are a lover of yellow gold in your jewelry, you don’t have to count blue sapphires out! The deeper darker blues contrast dramatically with yellow gold and are a favorite of many! If your sapphire gemstone is surrounded by diamonds or another cool-toned gemstone like aquamarine or complementary colored stones like citrine or ruby, adding the rich warm tones of the yellow gold metal can be a powerful and beautiful combination!
Blue Sapphire Jewelry Paired With Diamonds!
While the singular blue sapphire is gorgeous by itself, we also love to pair it with other gemstones to create unique combinations!
Isbell’s favorite gemstone to pair with blue sapphire is a white diamond! There is something about this combination that exudes grace, beauty, and elegance but also is relaxed enough for everyday wear!
Our estate jewelry collection carries several elegant blue sapphire and diamond combinations like the ones shown below. This beautiful combination of blue sapphires and diamonds never goes out of style!
Sapphire Rings, Earrings, and Necklaces
Engagement and Wedding Rings with Sapphires
Diamonds have long been the choice for the featured gemstone of engagement rings and wedding bands but many have chosen to add sapphire gemstones to the set. We love the elegant look of the deep blue that enhances the sparkles of the diamonds! Blue sapphires add the traditional “something blue” to a wedding ensemble also.
Romantics-at-heart may choose a sapphire in their engagement or wedding ring if they met their beloved during the month of September, set the date of their wedding to September, or if either of them has September birthdays.
The late Princess Diana of Wales chose a large blue sapphire surrounded by smaller white diamonds as her engagement ring. She was also often seen wearing sapphire pendants and earrings that complimented her ring. Her style and grace were a favorite of so many! Sapphires have a way of making you feel like royalty while also staying down-to-earth!
Sapphire Pendants & Earrings
Sapphire pendants and earrings create stunning sets that can be worn for the most formal events or for a casual day around town. Darker blue tones are a classic neutral and can be worn with a variety of skin tones. When choosing the style of sapphire necklace for your next event, be sure to check out our guide Choosing the Right Necklace for Every Neckline.
For formal occasions, pendant sapphire earrings elegantly frame the face and bring a bit of drama with their contrast! Sapphire pendant necklaces elevate your outfit with a grounding yet eye-catching effect!
