Are you in love with a blue-eyed girl? If her eyes have captivated your heart and mind, then it isn't too early to start planning that special holiday gift this year, especially if you want to get her something that has a little shine to go along with the sparkle in her eyes. Here are some specific stones that you should consider if you want to emphasize the blue in your beloved's eyes.
Lapis lazuli was once prized by people in ancient Egypt, Persia, Greece, and Rome for its intense blue color. It was even ground into a fine dust and used to make unique pigments for great paintings by Renaissance painters and is widely believed to be the main ingredient in the most expensive pigment ever created.
The most valuable lapis lazuli gems are usually solid blue, or solid blue with a few flecks of pyrite in them. However, many people find beauty in the mix of white calcite that is commonly seen with less-expensive pieces. Consider either a simple strand of lapis lazuli beads to grace your blue-eyed lady's neck or a pair of matching stones set in gold to highlight the flecks of pyrite in them.
Blue topaz is a very abundant gemstone—which also makes it reasonably priced. It also comes in a tremendous number of shades, from an ice blue that's very pale to a deep shade known as "London Blue." Because of the tremendous number of shades that you can find in this stone, it may be possible to get jewelry custom-designed that will actually match the shade of your lady's eyes exactly. A pair of sizeable studs set in either silver or gold will look stunning without necessarily breaking the bank. This is also an especially good choice if your beloved is a writer or works in communication—it's supposed to carry energies that help people express their thoughts more clearly.
If you're ready to make a commitment to your blue-eyed love, you might want to consider a blue sapphire ring. Sapphires are nearly as hard as diamonds and they are associated with constancy and faithfulness, which makes them ideal for a wedding ring. The engagement ring that was given by Prince William of England to his wife, Catherine, is a large blue sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds. It's the same ring that once graced the hand of his mother, Princess Diana.
If you prefer a diamond center, consider adding a couple pear-shaped sapphires as accent pieces. The flash of color will make the ring more striking.
These are just some of the most accessible options you can find when it comes to blue jewelry. You can also find beautiful blue turquoise jewelry, as well as jewelry made from such unusual stones as rainbow moonstones, sodalite, and kyanite. Talk to someone at your local jewelry store and explain exactly what you're looking to buy and ask for their assistance.Share
