Who Has Time for the Blues?

I do! While there may be a slight correlation between being sad and being blue, there is nothing sad about having blue in your jewelry. In fact, blue kisses up to royalty and is a favored color for forward thinking and anything modern. It is calming and trustworthy. That is why so many banks use blue in their logos and marketing material.

Here are some regal ways to add blue to your designs.


This is probably the first stone that you think of when you think of a blue gemstone. It is the ultimate blue stone and is one of the four stones in the world considered precious. It is as hard as a diamond and the birthstone of September.
Blue Sapphire

Blue Opal

In between the most common white opal and the most expensive black opal lies the pretty blue opal. It is a modern October gemstone and filled with fiery color. It is associated with Libra babies.

Blue Opal


This gemstone gets its name from its ocean blues and teals. It is a  March birthstone and associated with Scorpios even though they are not March babies.

In addition to these pretty blues, other blues include kyanite, labradorite, sunstone, lapis lazuli, sodalite and aventurine. Of course, there are many other blue stones that are found in jewelry, but like these stones, anytime that you add blue to your design, you are adding a calming and regal stone.

Here are some things that will not give you the blues. In fact, they will make you quite happy, so buy them all now!
