Sapphire, Events Posted by Gerard McCabe on 26/02/2024

On Friday the 23rd of February, the team at Gerard McCabe was proud to present the Festival of Sapphires: a one-day-only exclusive shopping experience that showcased one of the largest offerings of sapphires Adelaide has ever seen!

Our Rundle Mall Plaza boutique was transformed into a paradise, filled to the brim with sapphire jewellery. As an ode to the beautiful colours of Australian sapphires, our boutique was decorated with a balloon garland and floral arrangement in brilliant shades of blue, green and yellow. Guests enjoyed delicious sapphire-coloured macarons from Just Bliss and Chateau Yaldara sparkling wine as they tried on jewellery and marvelled at the largest collection of sapphires under the one roof in Adelaide.

Amongst an extended offering of ready-to-wear Sapphire Dreams jewellery, our Rundle Mall Plaza boutique also showcased several prestige designs, Ceylon sapphire pieces and a collection of incredible loose sapphires in practically every colour of the rainbow. Attendees were spoilt with sapphires for choice, whether they were searching for a diamond alternative for an engagement ring, a unique gemstone for a bespoke design or the perfect gift for a milestone anniversary,
