    A growing trend among many couples is to have a Ring Warming Ritual as part of the ceremony. This deeply meaningful, yet simple gesture, is a beautiful and unique compliment to your wedding day ceremony. During the service, your wedding rings are passed around to all of your guests. Each guest holds the rings briefly, while silently saying a blessing or wish for your union. This ritual is ideal for small  ceremonies and is an interactive way to include your guests in the service. They will all feel so cherished by your gesture to include each and every one of them.

    If you are worried about your rings getting dropped or lost, consider placing the rings in a small bag or tie them together with fabric. In addition if you are having a larger ceremony - or if you just don’t like the idea of having everyone touching your rings - pass them just among your immediate family members. The passing can even take place during the vows, so that by the time you get to the ring exchange the rings will have made their way back to you.

  • Sapphire ~ The Birthstone for September

    Folks born in the month of September are fortunate to have the stunning sapphire as their birthstone. Sapphire is a variety of the mineral corundum and is found in just about every color except for red. There is red corundum but it is known as the gemstone ruby. The blue variety of sapphire is the most popular and is the color used to represent September. The blue sapphire ranges in color from light to dark blue.  The most valuable varieties of sapphire are called Kashmir and Burmese and prized for their intense, deep blue coloring. The Celyon sapphire is one of the oldest varieties of sapphire to be discovered.

    Sapphire is a relatively hard gemstone. It is a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness where 10 (which happens to be diamond) is the hardest mineral. The fact that it is so scratch resistant makes it ideal for daily wear and works well for wedding rings. One of the most famous sapphire wedding rings was worn by the late Princess Diana and now adorns the finger of her daughter-in-law Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge. In addition to being the birthstone for September, it is also the gemstone used to represent the 5th, 23rd and 45th year of marriage.

    Sapphires have been worn to represent truth, honor and faithfulness. They were thought to bring about feelings of friendship, harmony, and sympathy. It has also been believed to  offer healing for colic, mental illness and rheumatism and has been worn to  protect against evil spirits and other unsavory creatures. The power of the sapphire was believed to be so strong that if given to another person it could still protect the original wearer and the new owner at the same time.

    Sapphire is a luminous and radiant gemstone. It has a rich history and has been loved and adored for centuries. Yes, September babies -- you sure have one heck of a gemstone to represent your birth month. Congratulations and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

  • Ruby ~ The Birthstone for July

    Ruby is the birthstone designated for the month of July. No other gemstone would be as perfect, to represent this warm summer month -- the red-hot ruby had to have been the clear choice. This dazzling gemstone represents love and passion; which not only makes ruby a great birthstone -- but a wonderful engagement ring as well. It is also said that the ruby brings the wearer health, wealth and success. You lucky July babies!!!

     

    There are so many great things to love about rubies! For one thing, they are a very hard stone, so they can be worn every day. However, you must keep in mind that with any stone, you will want use a reasonable amount of caution. While it is more resistant to surface scratches than most stones - if it takes a hit - it could chip or crack.

     

     

    Another great thing about the ruby is how absolutely striking it is. Whether you find it in the highly sought after "pigeon blood-red "- or in a pink-red or purple-red tone - it is still gorgeous. The ruby is a stone that has been worn by royals all over the world - it was actually known as the "king of gems" for a time. In fact - in England - it was commonly used for coronation rings.

      

    Rubies are  a variety of the mineral corundum. Corundum is also known as sapphire and comes is just about every color. So, the ruby is essentially a red sapphire --  but because of is beauty and prestige it is in a class all its own. Sapphires and rubies are identical in properties but the color is what makes them different.

     Ruby - along with emerald, sapphire and diamonds - are considered precious gemstones. They are classified this way because of their rarity and value. For rubies, the richer the color - the more rare and valuable the stone is. Another thing that is considered when pricing a ruby, is how free of blemishes or "birthmarks" it is.
