When love comes knocking your door, you don’t have time to question it or judge it. Love is a feeling that may be described in many words but best understood silently. If you have found your love, understand that you are lucky. Not everyone finds their true life partner easily. But one of the most difficult phases of a relationship is when you have to take the bold step and ask her for marriage. Most men don’t know how to pop the question and end up asking the wrong questions, at the wrong time. If you don’t want something similar happening with you, prepare yourself beforehand. There are several ways to make the moment special, all you need to do is bring out the romantic in you.
There can be no better gesture or proof of your love than gifting your lady a precious gemstone that’s embedded on a ring. If you want to make the moment special, there’s hardly a better way of doing it than with a sapphire ring. The reason why a sparkling sapphire would suit the occasion is because it is regarded as a timeless beauty that has for ages embodied love. A sapphire is the perfect way of expressing your love because just like the gemstone your affections are skin-deep and ever-lasting.
Sapphire has always been associated with royalty. You can see many celebrities wear the beautiful gemstone with grace and pride. Penelope Cruz, Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley, Kate Middleton or the Duchess of Cambridge all proudly show-off their engagement or wedding rings that have striking blue sapphire in the middle.
You shouldn’t be gifting a sapphire to your love simply because it is expensive. Of course, you can’t deny the fact that it’s one of the most expensive gemstones ever known to mankind, but there are several more reasons for you to choose sapphire.
Sapphire is known as the stone of wisdom. It is considered a prophetic stone and also regarded as the gem of gems.
Sapphire is a variety of corundum and because of its cornflower blue color, it is also known as Cornflower Blue Sapphire or Kashmir Sapphire.
The word ‘sapphire’ is of Greek origin and literally means precious stone.
If your lady is born in the month of September, you have an even better reason to gift her a sapphire as it is the birthstone for the 9th month of the year.
Be careful whether you are getting a natural sapphire or an unnaturally manufactured one because apart from expert gemologists very few can distinguish the difference. Sapphire has unnaturally been manufactured since 1902.
In the olden days, kings and aristocrats believed the sapphire to be a protection against destruction, jealousy and greed.
Though it is true that when we think of sapphire, the deep blue color comes to the mind. But sapphire is available in other majestic colors as well though they are not as popular as the Kashmir Sapphire. When you are not simply satisfied with the sapphire and feel you could go the extra mile to make your girl happy, that’s when you should choose a differently-colored sapphire.
The second-most precious sapphire, after the Kashmir Sapphire is the Pink Sapphire. The vivacious pink color comes with a hint of suspense as you can hardly guess whether it’s simply a darker shade of pink or a color that’s just about to transform into ruby.
This gemstone is identified by the intense wine and purple color, which often come with a hint of grey or brown.
The elegant-looking green sapphire is found mainly in Thailand and Australia. But most green sapphires come with a tinge of black and grey shades which reduces its value.
White sapphire is among the cheaper sapphires available in the market.
These colors are very rarely found and thus are relatively unknown. Because sapphires with these colors have such light hues, they have to undergo numerous color-enhancement treatments.
There are several more reasons why you should choose sapphire for the special moment. Like all other gemstones, sapphire has several healing properties. Sapphire is regarded as a treatment for insomnia and is also seen as a purifier. It is particularly effective during seasonal changes. The precious gemstone is also believed to have saintly powers and helps take better decisions. It also helps amass wealth. The wearer of a sapphire remains focused and channelizes her energies towards fulfilling desires and dreams.
So, what are you waiting for? Splurging on a sapphire and gifting it to the love of your life is one of the best decisions you will make. Remember that there is no better time than now and no perfect moment than the ones you spend with your love. So make it special.
