Voyagers Jewelry Monthly Tip:
Sapphire, the birthstone for September,
has long been associated with the sky and
the heavens as a celestial gemstone.
(for a full list of birthstones
by month click here)
Blue is the main color of the sapphire. Blue is also the favorite color
of some 50 per cent of all people, men and women alike. We associate
this color, strongly linked to the Sapphire with feeling of sympathy and
harmony, friendship and loyalty.
color intensity and hue of the gemstone vary. Should she go for a
mid-blue stone which will remind her even on rainy days of that shining
summer sky? Or should she prefer a lighter blue because it will continue
to sparkle vivaciously when evening falls?
The bright light of day makes most sapphires shine more vividly than the
more subdued artificial light of evening. So in fact it is not, as is
often claimed, the darkest tone that is the most coveted color of the
blue sapphire, but an intense, rich, full blue which still looks blue in
poor artificial light.

Reuse, Recycle, Repair, Remount
Unique and Custom creations are Voyagers specialty -
unlike most jewelers,
we do all work in house and are able to work with existing pieces to
make them "new" again from a good cleaning and polishing to adding
stones or reusing a part of the old design to create a new piece. This
ability to create brand new from scratch, innovative designs, to reusing
and redesigning existing pieces allows Voyagers to be your personal and
full service jewelers. We do free estimates for any design.
always, we recommend that you regularly have your jewelry checked &
inspected. We can do that while you wait ... as well as keep
your jewelry sparkling & clean.....
After cleaning, we
will check for any missing stones; inspect each stone for
tightness; and look for chips, nicks and breakage.
Prongs, shanks and mountings will be inspected for wear and cracks.
If repairs are needed, we will make suggestions and discuss possible
options with you.
