The Secrets of Sapphires

*Originally published September 2016


Welcome to September! A new month brings a new brilliant gemstone to feature as a birthstone and this month is the stunning sapphire.  Many throughout history would say you have been blessed to have the Sapphire as your birthstone. For centuries this stunning stone has adorned the robes of clergy and royalty symbolizing nobility, truth and faithfulness.

During the Middle Ages, many even believed that sapphires symbolized Heaven and brought about heavenly blessings.  It’s not hard to see why these beliefs were so common, as the deep blue hue of most sapphires remind us of the infinite blue skies and bring about a sense of calmness and reserved glamour.

Most associate sapphires with its popular blue color, but luckily for you September babies, they actually come in a rainbow of colors such as violet, green, orange, pink and purple. There are even some that show combinations of different colors and can visually change color under certain light.


Another unique type of sapphire is the star sapphire. The star effect called asterism appears as a six-ray star across a cabochon-cut stone’s curved surface. It occurs from white light reflecting from numerous tiny, oriented needle-like inclusions. If you are looking for a unique stone that will catch anyone’s eye, the star sapphire will not disappoint.

Whether you go with the classic blue stone or opt for a fun fancy color, September babies are sure to have a month of luck and happiness (and amazing accessories) while wearing a stunning sapphire.
