Sapphires have long been a symbol of wisdom, virtue, good fortune and holiness for royals. In an engagement ring, a sapphire means faithfulness and sincerity too and is believed to calm the spirit and heal the body. Long a favorite of royals, the sapphire is known for its beauty, brilliance and hardiness. The most famous royal blue sapphire engagement ring in modern history was that of Princess Diana’s, now Kate Middleton’s.

We’ve handpicked six sapphire accessories from our trusted jewelers, ranging from rings to necklaces just for you. Scroll down and let the queen within you aspire for a sapphire. Happy shopping!

“Weston proposed in Brooklyn overlooking the water with the NYC skyline in the background,” remembers bride Liles. “It was absolutely breathtaking.” After finding inspiration within the pages of Weddings in Houston magazine, Liles planned a wedding that was both a “fun and memorable” affair with a “romantic” theme. “Our venue was beautiful without any decor, but I knew I wanted to dress it up in a big way for our day,” says the bride who describes a ballroom filled with greenery and colorful florals in a stunning palette of mauve, blush, and creams.

The celebration included personal touches such as a live painter, custom cocktail napkins to include their pets, with cute sayings: “Raise the woof” “Guard your drink” “Purr me another” and “Hightail it to the dance floor” and Weston playing “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John with the band on stage. The bride adds, “We also incorporated some very non traditional aspects—I had a Bridesman and Weston had a Best Woman.” Photographer Amy Maddox expertly captured the celebration through her light and airy photography style. “Everyone has asked us what our favorite part about our wedding was, but truly the whole day was just the best day ever. All of it coming together the way I’d very thoughtfully planned was so awesome!”

Join us in celebrating this sweet young couple’s romantic mauve, blush, and creams fall wedding, all stunningly documented by Amy Maddox Photography. Congratulations, Liles & Weston!

You can’t spell spouse without OU! College sweethearts Nicole and Braden met at the University of Oklahoma and sooner or later they were engaged there as well. Braden proposed to Nicole by cementing a paver at the spot, where the two fell in love on campus, with the words “Will you marry me.” Nicole was left speechless and mustered up the courage to say the most important word of all, “Yes!”

Following a traditional church ceremony on January 25, 2020, the couple joined 263 loved ones at The Woodlands Country Club; an elegant venue with stunning golf course views. The venue was transformed into a timeless, candlelit celebration with lush white floral decor and pillar candles that illuminated the roomThe magical night continued with a delectable dinner catered by The Woodlands Country Club and a heartfelt speech made by the bride’s father. Among the bride’s most cherished moments of the day? “Getting ready with my bridesmaids at my family home surrounded by all the generations of girls in my family and friends.”
