The September birthstone is sapphire, a precious gemstone that has been treasured for centuries. Sapphires come in a range of colors from deep blue to pink and yellow. Historically, blue sapphire has been the most prized, but all sapphires are beautiful and have a special significance.

Sapphires represent integrity, loyalty, and faithfulness. They are often given as gifts to commemorate special occasions, such as anniversaries and engagements. The blue sapphire is particularly connected to the 45th wedding anniversary, and is a popular choice for wedding bands.

Sapphires are formed deep in the earth’s mantle, and are composed of the mineral corundum, which is also the mineral that makes up rubies. The colour of a sapphire is determined by the presence of trace elements during its formation. The most common colour is blue, but other colours are also available, such as pink, yellow, green, and orange.

Sapphires are believed to bring good luck and are thought to protect the wearer from harm. They are also said to bring wisdom, clarity, and mental strength. Because of these qualities, sapphires are often worn for spiritual reasons and are believed to bring inner peace.

Sapphires are a great choice for jewellry because they are durable and strong, and can withstand wear and tear. They also look great set in a variety of settings, from classic solitaire rings to modern bezel settings. Sapphires are perfect for everyday wear and formal occasions.
