{The Sapphire Mythology}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
For their wedding day “something blue,” some brides wear a special sapphire ring or pin or amulet. Sapphires have a great deal of ethereal meaning in the world of gemstones. Queen Victoria wore a large sapphire brooch, a gift from her beloved Albert, pinned to her white silk satin gown the day they married. As a teenage bride-to-be, Lady Diana Spencer chose a sapphire and diamond engagement ring from the selection offered her by Prince Charles and the royal family.

The blue sapphire is considered the stone of “holy blessings” and has long symbolized truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. A precious gemstone may not be able to guarantee the love we want, but “holy blessings” come in all shapes and sizes and disguises! Whatever gemstone you wear, it’s more of a treasure when you add self-love—a blessing that keeps sharing riches of the heart.

The sapphire mythology also holds that the stone oversees one’s divine destiny. What do you see as your destiny? If it is indeed “divine”—and I believe that’s true for all of us—then love is at its core, and all you need to do is keep your heart open to receive its “holy blessings.”

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia
