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.
These Sapphire pieces by Soru feature genuine sapphire gemstones set within Swarovski Crystals on gold vermeil. Each piece is hand-crafted and no two are alike.
