sapphire, queen of gemstones

Sapphire, Queen of Gemstones

Sapphire gemstones are treasured for their beauty and their hardness. They are the third hardest gemstone known to man, with a 9 on the Mohs scale. Only diamonds and moissanite are harder. Because of their hardness, they are used not only in jewelry, where their durability lets them absorb rough handling but in scientific instruments such as solid-state electronics. The best sapphires come from Asia, although they are also found in Africa, Australia, and North America.

Something Romantic and Blue History

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in your shoe” Have you heard this old rhyme, or a variation and wondered to yourself - why? Well, we've done some research into the history of this rhyme and would like to share what we've found.

The rhyme is believed to date back at least to the time of Great Britain's Queen Victoria, who was born in 1819 and ruled from 1837 until 1901. She and her consort, Prince Albert, were married in 1840 and began one of the great love stories of all time.
