It’s hard to believe that August is already over and Autumn is soon going to be settling in, but the new Alex and Ani collection at fabulous is certainly helping to soften the blow.

New for AW16, the Celebration of Life collection is inspired by the magical journey that each of us goes on. With their new designs, Alex and Ani channels the amazing moments that we all experience, individually and as a collective.  Just like our ancestors, inside every one of us is the power to choose our own destinies and carve our paths in life.

September Birthstone: Sapphire

Happy birthday, September babies! Those born in September are lucky enough to have one of the most iconic birthstones: the sapphire.

The rarest and most valuable blue gemstone, sapphires have a timeless popularity owing to their velvety-blue hues and natural lustre. Their natural hardness is second only to diamonds, so sapphire jewellery is built to last and perfect for keepsakes.

  • Sapphires are associated with magic; in ancient times, they were considered a talisman of protection and, in the middle ages, it was thought that they could cure illnesses.
  • Sapphires are also traditionally connected to royalty, and featured on the engagement ring of Princess Diana and Kate Middleton.
