SEPTEMBER - SAPPHIRE

SEPTEMBER - SAPPHIRE
The only difference between a Ruby and a Sapphire is simply the colour. The colour of a Sapphire is created by various amounts of iron and titanium in the stone, the combination of which produce varying colours. Whilst the most desirable colour Sapphire is blue, ( specifically a“cornflower blue’) they also come in violet, dark gray, orange, yellow, pink, green and black. These different coloured Sapphires are referred to as “fancy Sapphires” and are often less expensive than the blue ones, yet equally as beautiful, and a fine alternative to blue. 
A rare orange - pink coloured kind of Sapphire is called “Padparadscha,” which means “Lotus Flower” in Sinhalese, is very expensive and is the only colour Sapphire given its own name. Because Sapphires are available in so many colours, they are an incredibly versatile gemstone.

MARCH - ALLURING AQUAMARINE

MARCH - ALLURING AQUAMARINE
Nearly all Aquamarines on the market have been heat treated to enhance the colour. In meeting with the consumer preference for aquamarines in deep blue, the stones are heated near 800 degrees Fahrenheit, which causes the blue colour to emerge and the yellow/green tones to disappear. As a gemstone, they work equally beautifully set in silver or gold. Many aquamarine stones are virtually free of inclusions and their lustre is vitreous or glass-like.
