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.
