Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh, are this week celebrating their sapphire wedding anniversary, which marks an incredible 65 years of marriage. The royal couple, who were married on 20th November 1947 at Westminster Abbey, spent their special day privately at their London home Buckingham Palace.
If you know anyone who is lucky enough to be reaching their sapphire anniversary celebrations, a stunning piece of sapphire jewellery is the perfect gift to give them in order to mark the occasion. For ladies, a pair of sapphire studs or a sparkling sapphire pendant would be a thoughtful, elegant present; for gentlemen, you could consider some smart sapphire cufflinks or a watch with a diamond and sapphire encrusted dial.
However, sapphire jewellery is a great gift for any occasion, not just anniversaries. Whether it’s a birthday, a national holiday, or even a proposal, sapphires are wonderful, versatile stones that work well in all sorts of styles. Plus, they’ve been very much at the forefront of fashion since Kate Middleton received a 12 carat sapphire engagement ring when her now husband Prince William proposed.
The stores of Hatton Garden in London have a wide variety of jewellery adorned with gemstones of all kinds. If you want to invest in some jewellery for yourself or a loved one, why not pay them a visit?
