How Do You Celebrate 19 Years?

How about with a green sapphire?

Green Sapphire & Sterling Silver Necklace by Batiz

This treasure was handcrafted by local jewelry artist Batiz.

My loving and generous husband, ALWAYS gives to me a shinny bubble of one kind or another to celebrate life’s occasions. Today, we are remembering the day, 19 years ago, when he asked me to be his girlfriend.  I was 15, he was 14. Who says high school sweethearts don’t last?


The sapphire is a gem-variety of corundum. When we think of sapphires, we think of the blue variety. However, sapphires can be found in any color except for red. Red corundum gems are rubies. Sapphires can also be found in black, shades of gray or white (colorless).  For a sapphire to appear green, it must contain trace amounts of iron.
