In the early 1980’s the world instantly fell in love with the little known Lady Diana Spenser. Her popularity skyrocketed as she quickly became an international symbol of fashion, culture and sophistication. And, her elegant style was soon imitated the world over!
Although I loved many of Diana’s dresses, shoes, and especially hats, I have also long lusted after the spectacular jewels she wore with such aplomb. Who else could carry off a triple pearl strand choker with pearl and turquoise clasp, enormous crescent-shaped diamond earrings (a gift from Sultan of Oman), or her ubiquitous diamond tiara?
But, in my opinion, Diana’s most spectacular jewels were her sapphires. Her stunning engagement ring – a 12-carat blue Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds – is one of the most copied pieces of jewelry in history!
I recently received the magnificent sapphire halo pendant set in sterling silver, pictured above, from SilverSpeck.com. The halo style is one of my favorite “new” jewelry designs, but actually is loosely based on heirloom rings from the turn of the century.
A single round, lab-created blue sapphire is enhanced by sparkling CZ chips. This dazzling pendant dangles from an 18” rolo chain crafted of fine sterling silver. Total gem weight: 2.25ct. The pendant is the highest quality and absolutely beautiful! Retail $19.99
Since 1985, SilverSpeck.com has offered exquisite gemstone bracelets, pendants, necklaces, earrings, and rings – and all at prices that can’t be beat!
SilverSpeck.com doesn’t offer just sapphires like mine, of course. In fact, the company has over 7,000 different jewelry items for men and women online – and a trip through the website is nothing short of breathtaking! Simply search by stone, metal type, collection, price or type of jewelry (earrings, cufflinks, bracelet, etc.).
Although it’s almost impossible to pick favorites from such a large selection, another item on my Wish List is the lab created emerald tennis bracelet, shown. 25 round stones are set in the traditional “S” design, with diamond accents, and the piece is crafted of lustrous sterling silver. This beauty would be perfect for a night on the town, work, or weekend fun. Total gem weight: 4.5ct. Retail $49.99
I also think that the ruby teardrop earrings, pictured, are destined for a home in my jewelry box. A genuine diamond is set between the two lab-created stones. The earrings are secured by post and friction backs and are also crafted of sterling silver. Classic! Total gem weight: 3.8ct. Total diamond weight: .02ct. Retail $24.99
Whichever piece you choose, you are sure to be as thrilled as I am. Seen the entire line of jewelry fit for a Princess!
