September’s birthstone is the venerable sapphire!
It ranges from a distinguished inky blue to an alluring cornflower blue. Sapphire is a gemstone with properties said to enhance level thinking and with an appearance of refinement.
Its steadfast nature made sapphire the perfect gemstone to coincide with the inception of the dinner ring!
This style of ring came into prominence through the 1920s during the Prohibition era in America. With the sale of alcoholic beverages prohibited, cocktail parties fell by the wayside and the term 'cocktail ring’ with it.
Instead, innovative women hosted fabulous dinner parties to have a reason to show off their latest fashion with friends and family. The dinner ring was then the next big thing.
Regaled in sophistication, dinner rings were elongated mountings with intricately pierced details and a low profile.
Often amplifying this design was the hardy sapphire which added a burst of blue sparkle in electric lamplight.
