Something Blue, Something Beautiful

“Blue moonstones are magical and particularly flattering.”

~Temple St. Clair


Your “something blue” on your wedding day should always be something beautiful.  A bride should be able to create a look that is unique to her and Temple St. Clair’s exquisite Royal Blue Moonstone pieces are the perfect accessories for any wedding day look.

The ancient Romans believed that the luminescent Moonstone was formed out of moonlight and could arm the wearer with prophetic powers during a full moon.  Temple’s signature stone is the Royal Blue Moonstone.  These beautifully cut, high domed Blue Moonstones are of a remarkable quality and are known for their beautiful flash of light.

With their subtle blue color and romantic inspiration, these pieces of jewelry can be worn as part of your bridal look and for all the days after.
