Blue September

English Art Deco Silver Cufflinks with Sapphire Blue Enameling (LEO Design)

September begins, bringing with it the month’s birthstone: the sapphire.  The sapphire is a variety of the mineral corundum.  Most people think of sapphires as blue although they also can come in shades of green,  yellow, orange, or purple—but not red (for then it would be a ruby).  Some sapphires display more than one color and others have inclusions which create radiant, six-pointed “stars” which glow from within the stone.

The cufflinks, shown above, are enameled in sapphire blue—not the gemstone itself.

For the Labor Day Weekend, LEO Design will be open from Noon ’til 6:00 pm daily, today through Monday.
