Sapphire Earrings - A Portion of Sky

How about embellishing yourself with a portion of sky. If your answer is yes then sapphire earrings is something you are looking for. Whether it is concentrated and lush blue sapphire or innocent pink they do a lot to fill your face with a mystery of its own. Blue is the most known and celebrated color of this stone. But apart from blue it also comes in unconventional colors such as green, yellow, brown and orange.

Earrings add greatly to your look by defining your face and appearance. They provide your face with an aura of its own. Colored gemstones particularly those with deep vivid color make earrings stand out. This is the reason they are so attention seeking. Same goes true for sapphire earrings. You don’t have to be wearing blue, black or white in order to carry them. Contrasting colors such as red, green and yellow can also be worn to carry them well.

These earrings lost in the magic of velvety blue come in various designs and patterns. The most basic and popularly worn style is solitaire stud earrings. Choosing a right solitaire stud mainly depends upon the color of precious metal and shape of gem. Some faces gel good with square cut solitaires while round and pear suits others better. As far as danglers are concerned you can start with your favorite shapes such as pear, round emerald or square hanging down through a diamond studded string. You can also go for designs and patterns hanging off hoops. If danglers are too much for you then go for simple or studded hoops. On one hand where channel set sapphire hoops are good for daily wear, designs paired with diamond accents are lavish.

While talking about the gem, pink sapphire is worth mention. Because of its color it goes well for teenage and baby jewelry. Carry a pink sapphire solitaire earring or the contemporary hoops at a teenager’s birthday and your gift will never be forgotten. If this is the purchase you are making for once in a lifetime occasion then go for grand and off beat designs such as leaf danglers or earrings or dolphin earrings.

It is also the birthstone for September and an ideal gift for 5th and 45th wedding anniversary. Therefore if your wife or girlfriend is born in September or you are celebrating your anniversary soon this is something you can plan for as a gifting option.

Suggest deep-sky targets for binoculars?

I have a pair of Celestron Skymaster 15x70s, plus a tripod. Good binocs. I'm looking for easy deep-sky targets -- nebulae, galaxies, clusters, etc. So far, I've observed Andromeda (M31), the M82 galaxy in Ursa Major, and the Orion Nebula (M42). What are some good Spring/Summer targets that stand up to modest light pollution?

Gene is right. Follow the Milky Way very slowly. Take the time to stop and study a region (knowing that the rotation will cause the region to 'sweep' through the field of view).

Also, find M13, one of the easier northern globular cluster, in Hercules, an easy Spring/Summer target.

In fact, give yourself the following challenge: try to see as many of the Messier objects as you can. This may take a while with binoculars and some will be beyond your reach. But it will be fun (and a nice way to compare what you can see with what the books -- or websites -- show about the objects).

Keep a log book. Take notes. Learn to sketch star patterns. It is a challenge without a drive (to compensate for Earth's spin) but it is not impossible -- begin with easy patterns. Sometimes you need to sketch just enough stars so that you can verify that what you looked at is really what you were looking for. Also, you can see planets (or even some asteroids) move from day to day or week to week.

With your binoculars, you might even reach Neptune. You will not see it as a disk. Therefore you will not know which dot it is, unless you sketch it over a week or two.
