September's birthstone has long been Sapphires - said to symbolize loyalty, sincerity and integrity.
Popularly assumed to be only a blue stone, natural stone Sapphires actually come in a rainbow of colors - all except red, which are Rubies.
Sapphires are used to celebrate 5th, 45th and 65th wedding anniversaries!
In addition to dangling earrings, I suspend the sparkling blue Sapphires on a beautiful Sterling Silver bar necklace. I also love the look of Sapphires and raw Emeralds - so you'll see those natural stones used together in my earring and necklace designs.
Hypoallergenic jewelry is nickel free - or contains such small amounts of nickel that it is considered hypoallergenic. 925 Sterling Silver is an alloy that does not contain any nickel, which means it is hypoallergenic. All of my handmade natural stone jewelry is nickel free and hypoallergenic! Be aware that silver-plated jewelry might not be nickel free. You need to be certain that you are purchasing genuine 925 Sterling Silver jewelry or that the silver-plated jewelry you choose is on a nickel free base, such as copper. To learn more about this and other hypoallergenic metals, see my article on Hypoallergenic & Nickel Free Jewelry.
