Think Pink: Pink Sapphires for Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a beautiful time to honor those who are fighting breast cancer, recovering from breast cancer, and in memory of those who have lost their battle with breast cancer. Pink sapphires make a meaningful symbol of support now and throughout the year.

Symbolic of loyalty, trust, and sincerity, the romantic hues of pink sapphires range from pale blush pink to vivid magenta. One of the most beloved shades is a medium hot pink hue, vividly saturated with color, and often in high demand from colored gemstone lovers.

As the rarest and most prized of the fancy sapphires, cut is one of the most important factors in determining the value of a pink sapphire. A well cut sapphire allows the light and color to shine through the gemstone, enhancing its beauty. Oval, round, and cushion cuts are among the most popular, and are showcased beautifully in rings, pendants, necklaces, and earrings.

Often set in platinum or white gold to highlight the color, pink sapphires pair especially well with diamonds and make a stunning statement in both fashion and bridal jewelry collections.

With an array of beautiful pink sapphires in our showroom, there are many fine jewelry designs to show your support for breast cancer. Join us in the fight against cancer with your purchase of pink sapphire jewelry from Gary J. Long Jewelers - we are donating 10% of any purchase of pink gemstone jewelry to the American Cancer Society for the month of October.
