COMMENTS: A gorgeous cocktail ring with a rich blue sapphire set amid a sparkling burst diamonds. This Sapphire which weighs 0.75 carats is surrounded by 16 brilliant cut diamonds. The ring is crafted in 14kt yellow gold and designed to show off all the glittering gemstones to the best effect. The blue sapphire, sparkling diamonds and rich yellow gold create an elegant ring that is ideal for an evening out or a festive party. In fact this style of ring was originally known as a "cocktail ring".
During the 1950s and early 1960s, when the cocktail party was the peak of sophisticated entertaining, the jewel of the day (or perhaps we should say the evening) was the cocktail ring. No fashionable woman would be seen without one of these bedazzling jewels on her gloved hand. Sapphire is the official birthstone for the month of September as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also one of the birth stones for the Zodiac signs of Pisces, Taurus, Virgo and Sagittarius. See the birthstone tables for additional references to this stone. Sapphire is given as a gem for the 5th, 23rd and 45th wedding anniversaries while a star sapphire is given on the 65th wedding anniversary. Its powers include spiritual enlightenment and inner peace. Sapphire is believed to offer healing properties for rheumatism, colic, and mental illness. It is also considered an antidepressant and an aid to psychokinesis, telepathy, clairvoyance and astral projection.
