Squirrels are busy scurrying to collect rapidly falling acorns- their food for the coming winter months! The leaves on the trees are beginning to showcase brilliant reds, oranges and golden yellows and the summer flowers are losing their vibrancy and fading away to make room for fall’s favorite flowers- mums! Fall has arrived in Kennebunkport as buses arrive hourly, depositing tourists from all across America. Apple season will soon be upon us and we will once again enjoy the scent of freshly baked apple pie wafting from our kitchens. Temperatures are dipping into the 40’s and 50’s at night as they strive to reach mid 60’s in the day, so don’t forget to bring sweaters and light jackets as you pack for Maine. The town is bustling with activity as we welcome our fall visitors! Here, at Coastal Jewelers we have been busy replenishing our inventory with exciting new pieces.
September’s birthstone is Sapphire, ranging in gorgeous colors of blue, yellow, pink, green, purple, white and orange – quite the array of colors. Sapphires are a hard stone, ranked 9 on the Moh’s Scale of Hardness and second only to diamonds ranking 10. Here are some metaphysical/healing properties of Sapphires:
- Increased intuition
- Mental clarity
- Spiritual power
- Assist in spiritual and personal growth
The rarest and most expensive of the sapphires is the pink-orange Padparadscha found in Sri Lanka. It takes its name from the Sanskrit word for the beautiful lotuses native to that part of the world.
The most highly valued blue sapphires range from a velvety blue to violet blue, in medium to dark tones, as color is one of the most important influences on a sapphire’s value.
We have many beautiful sapphire pieces both on our website as well as in our store. Below are just a few samplings of what we offer.
We are busily setting up a Fall Sale section in our store so stop by and have a peek! We are sure you will find a perfect piece to take home!
Here’s a sneak peek at some of our newest pieces that are simply spectacular:
