Blue Monday

Blue Monday, apparently the most depressing day of the year. Awarded its melancholy title due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, cold nights, dark days – and a general anti-climactic feeling following the build-up to December.

Here at Lister Horsfall we don’t want to be blue, unless blue means a beautiful blue sapphire!

Ever since Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his mother’s 18-carat blue sapphire engagement ring in 2010, the trend for those fairy-tale blue gems has thrived.

If you fancy a stone that’s little bit different from a diamond, then sapphire is a fantastic choice. But before you buy, there’s a thing or two below that you might want to know…

The word sapphire conjures up images of blue stones, and although blue is typically the most popular colour for this rock, they come in other colours too. Pink sapphires, like the inverted cushion cut gem on Nicole Richie’s ring, have caught the eye of many aspiring brides. You can also find valuable sapphires in yellow, green, purple, and red; but without a doubt, blue remains the most common and popular sapphire colour.

When choosing a sapphire ring, you might rather it stood alone to shine. Or you might want to pair it with diamonds for a more classic look. Whatever design you choose, know that sapphires are on-trend, and your ring will be sure to stand out in a crowd!

There are so many options out there, but it is a style that has and will last throughout time. Check out our amazing selection of sapphires – at Lister Horsfall we have style to suit every budget.
