Have you been to your local pumpkin patch yet (in Florida that means your local grocery store has put down some hay and created a faux farm experience for you)? My favorite things about September are the changing weather, even if very slightly, and SAPPHIRES!

This style opens up to a wide range of wedding band choices. You can choose to stick with the classic band, add one with diamonds, one with gemstones, or a couple of each. The classic lends itself to be pretty versatile and we have them to fit every...
