September's Birthstone | Sapphire
One of the rarest gemstones in the world, September’s birthstone, the sapphire, represents wisdom, loyalty and nobility.
Most known in its striking blue form, sapphires also come in purple, yellow, pink and even green – but it’s the royal shade of blue that is favoured by many.
A relative of July’s birthstone, the ruby, sapphires are a form of the mineral corundum. Red corundum is called ruby, whilst all other forms are sapphires.
Did you know? One of the most famous sapphires sits on the Imperial State Crown, worn by Queen Victoria 1838 and residing in the British Crown Jewels in the Tower of London.
Sapphires make stunning engagement rings, just ask Kate Middleton, who's beautiful sapphire engagement ring was originally Princess Diana's. Read more about Kate’s engagement ring here.
We love how the rich blue tones are complemented by the glittering clear diamonds, creating a head-turning finish.
On the left, this 18ct White Gold Sapphire Diamond Three Stone Ring is incredibly beautiful, showcasing an emerald cut sapphire nestled in between two round brilliant diamonds. On the right, this 18ct White Gold Sapphire Diamond Cluster Ring is similar to Princess Kate's, with a glistening halo of diamonds surrounding the sapphire for a truly royal style.
Sapphire jewellery is also breathtaking, making a wow-worthy addition to any jewellery box, September birthday or not.
