Dark blue sapphires set in sterling silver ear studs
This is a gorgeous matched pair of hand cut dark blue sapphires! They are round, 3 mm in diameter and well matched AA grade gemstones. Perfect for everyday wear, a party, or to add a little sparkle to a special outfit. The posts for these ear studs are sterling silver that compliments the deep color.
Sapphire is the birthstone for September, and the Zodiac stone for Taurus! They are associated with truth, sincerity, commitment and loyalty. Did you know that sapphire is a member of the corundum family? Another famous member is ruby. Corundum gems that are red or pink are labeled rubies, any other color is considered sapphire! I have Montana sapphires that are a beautiful, clear teal-green color and I have seen sapphires in orange, black and deep green.
As a small business I get my gemstones from many places and every location has its own story! I have purchased in the USA and abroad, at craft fairs, gem shows, garage sales, geology symposiums, private collectors and gemstone setters who are retiring from the business. This particular set of stones came from another small business run by a man who exclusively cuts gemstones! I see him annually at a really big gem and mineral show and he always has the same question, “You aren’t getting into too much trouble, are you?”
