Representing strength, loyalty and wisdom, the sapphire is a vibrant stone that has always been coveted by royalty, the rich and the powerful. It adds radiant colour to everyday, making it an exquisite gift for a special occasion; for an engagement, an anniversary or for someone who celebrates their birthday in the month of September. Hugh Rice are proud to present the Sapphire & Diamond Birthstone Stud Earrings to bring life back into your jewellery collection so you can live in a world of coloured gemstones. Two blue sapphire stones are held in a classic claw setting and surrounded by a cluster of twelve H/Si round brilliant diamonds which create a halo around the exceptional central sapphires. Expertly crafted from a smooth and highly polished 18CT white-gold setting, the earrings are complete with a pin and post fastening, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit when wearing. They’re presented in stunning Hugh Rice packaging, and they’re a perfect gift for a loved one, to show how much you care. You can also find the matching ring and necklace on our website and in store too, for a co-ordinated finish to your look this season.
Seen on the engagement ring of Diana, Princess of Wales and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, sapphires are a truly stunning stone. Considered the finest of all coloured gemstones, the sapphire doesn’t just feature in Asian mythology, but also in many European and Near Eastern history books and religious texts. In Greek mythology, one of the Titans stole a sapphire from Zeus. The story highlights how valuable these gemstones were to the ancient Greeks. In fact, the word ‘sapphire’ originates from the Greek sappheiros, meaning “precious stone”. It’s said to encourage truth, loyalty, wisdom and clear thinking, especially when worn by those born in September or under the star sign of Virgo.
