Sapphire is September’s Birthstone

Sapphire is the birthstone of September. The word “sapphire” means “clear thinking” but it can also be translated to “dear to planet Saturn” in  some languages. Some claim that name sapphire is derived from a combination of the Latin word “saphirus” and the Greek word “sapheiros,” both meaning blue. Others believe that it originated from its association with the planet Saturn.

Sapphire is a very unique gemstone with a wide array of applications. Though it is commonly used to make birthstone  jewelry, it can also be used for everything from infrared optical components and crystals to knife blades and windows.

Valentine’s Day Traditions – Gift Giving Ideas

I was recently wondering where Valentine’s Day came from. Some experts state that it originated from St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity and died on February 14, 269 A.D.. Actually there have been many people named Valentine throughout time so knowing exactly which one to attribute this event to is very hard and probably not that important.  What is important is that for hundreds of years people have been marking February 14th as a time to show love and affection.  The methods that people use to show there love and affection vary greatly from country to country but the common underlying thread with all these great traditions is the sharing and expression of one’s feelings for another.   I love this time of year because we have so many of our customers ask us to  engrave valentine messages to their loved ones.  We take great care and joy in engraving our customers special thoughts on things like silver lockets , silver pillboxes and jewelry.  Sterling Silver Gifts can last a life-time and make a perfect Valentine’s gifts.  For those of you who are like I am and always wait too long to get your gift – don’t worry we have almost everything we carry in stock and we do all our engraving in-house.  Normally engraved orders always ship within 48 hours during normal business days….. From all of us at Silver Mine Gifts have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and tell someone you love them….  Ralph
