Remembering The Titanic

This year marked the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s ill-fated maiden journey across the Atlantic.

The dramatic style of the necklace, and the tragic love story around it, have made this piece a favorite for romantics of any age. Capture the essence of the “Heart of the Ocean” pendant in these vintage-style designs, all available from Zales.

"I'll Take Sapphires for $500, Alex."

You don't have to be born in the month of September to appreciate the brilliant sapphire! The birthstone for those lucky Virgos is one of the most ancient gems, coveted by many. It's been rumored that the Ten Commandments were inscribed on tablets of sapphire so that a hammer swung against them could not succeed. And in ancient Persia, it was believed that the earth rested atop a giant sapphire and its reflection colored the sky. (You may need to know these fun facts for your appearance on Jeopardy™ one day!) 

Oval Blue and White Sapphire Ring Though the gem has been around for centuries, it grew in popularity after people got a look at Princess Diana's engagement ring.  And after Prince William passed the ring on to his bride, Kate, the look has taken off again - in fact sapphire engagement rings (and similarly styled earrings and pendants) are spotted quite often on trendy fashionistas everywhere.  Zales, of course, follows the trends for you. While Diana/Kate's ring is a magnificent 18 cts., our smaller styles are easily affordable for all.

Speaking of wedding rings, sapphire is considered the gem of faithfulness and fidelity. It's being seen more and more in stylish wedding and engagement jewelry for the modern bride. Our Cherished Promise collection features a variety of rings and pendants each with a tiny blue sapphire hidden somewhere along the setting. And many of our exquisite diamond engagement rings boast a pink sapphire accent on the bezel, offering a bright pop of color and a charming twist on tradition.

Marriage isn't the only reason to purchase a sapphire! Birthstone jewelry is a gift any woman (or man!) would love. Our sapphire styles for him and her run the gamut from simple to extravagant, traditional to modern, with even a few whimsical style thrown in for good measure!Pear-Shaped Lab-Created Blue and White Sapphire Earrings

Another fun fact - sapphires come in a wide variety of colors! While blue is the most  popular color, pink sapphires are sneaking up on them! And white sapphires are always an elegant and affordable option to diamonds. Sapphires can be most any color of the rainbow!
