Saturday in Maine
Blue Sapphire & Diamond Ring
Ahh…the freedom of the weekend.
Sleeping in late. A lazy breakfast.
Then comfortable jeans, my favorite sweater,
And barefoot on the beach.
This is my Saturday ring, comfortable, casual. It’s pretty, feminine, but not frilly. Practical, low profile. I can wear it almost anywhere I choose to go.* A beautiful antique cushion-cut center gem in the colors of summer and eight brilliant diamonds. – E.W.
Cross’ Passion for Blue Sapphire
Most Jewelers say the darker the better,
We say the bluer the better
People often comment on how blue our sapphires are, how brilliant and pure the color. We believe in blue, pure true blue. True blue is a medium toned blue. True blue is not navy or inky dark. True blue is bright and brilliant. True blue sapphires are shades of blue you can relax into; they calm, comfort and soothe.
If You Love Blue
Many sapphires are simply too dark. Often to see the blue in these sapphires you’d need to stand under intense direct light. In its finest qualities, a blue sapphire should be blue under normal life lighting conditions – home, office, and outdoors; not just under the bright showcase lights of a jewelry store.
Chosen One at a Time
Most jewelers prefer dark sapphires because they are easier to source and easier to match. Our sapphire jewelry starts with the selection of the individual gem. We choose gems one at a time, and evaluate them under different lighting conditions to find the best performing sapphires. The result is a gem which is bright, blue, and brilliant – everything you want in a sapphire.
This process takes more time and it results in the best, brightest, and truest bluest sapphire jewelry. The jewelry is then specially crafted to fit the gem.
