So, what is it about sapphires that got our attention? Below, we've listed the five best things about the gemstone!

5. Sapphires are Strong

They're sturdy enough to withstand a lifetime of wear - they're the second hardest, natural stone next to diamond.

4. Sapphires are Symbolic

Sapphires symbolize faithfulness, good fortune, and wisdom—all great things to bring into a marriage. Legend has it that it can bring harmony between lovers. The color is reminiscent of water, and the night sky.

Additionally, Sapphires are the birthstone for the month of September, and the traditional 5th, 10th, and 45th wedding anniversary presents.

3. Sapphires are Unique

Our customers love a natural, non-traditional aesthetic. Sapphires are earthy, unique, and mystical. They are a timeless way to bring a pop of color to an engagement setting and 'something blue' to a wedding ceremony.

2. Sapphires Have a Reduced Environmental Impact

Sapphires are generally mined in countries with more strict regulations surrounding gemstone mining. Most stones are mined on a small, artisanal scale that brings economic empowerment to communities. Although all types of mining create some environmental impact, impact reduction and reforestation efforts are common in many of these communities.

Rose Gold and Silver Conifer Couple Ring

I cannot find adequate words to describe the beauty of this ring. The contrast between the two metals is absolutely perfect, which only enhances the beauty and simplicity of the design. The craftsmanship is of the highest quality by Beth Millner and I look forward to further jewelry purchases. I also liked that I purchased this piece on sale.

Communication with Beth via phone was very prompt and professional. I highly recommend a jewelry purchase from Beth Millner. Delivery was quick and packaging was outstanding. Thank you, Beth, for your beautiful ring creation.

Beautiful print

Print reminds me of wonderful trip to Lake Superior. Awesome power of the water is captured well in her print design.

This is a hauntingly beautiful setting and zi had to have one of these prints.. The use of light and dark, the shading and shadows alldraw me into the forest. The Turquoise color illuminating a nighttime scene like this is something I would love to see. Now I can see Beth's print every day as it hangs on my wall andlose myself . Thank you! XOXO
