Sapphire, September's Birthstone
September’s birthstone is one of the most coveted and desirable gemstones used in jewellery. With historical links to royalty and an impressive variety in colour scale, the Sapphire is without a doubt one of nature’s finest gemstones.
What is the meaning of Sapphire gemstones?
Sapphires have long been associated with royalty, sincerity, and loyalty. According to tradition, sapphire is the wisdom stone, fostering clarity and depth of intellect while boosting creativity and focus. It is also referred to as the stone of young love and is said to be effective in fostering commitment and faithfulness.
Sapphires rank just below a diamond on the Moh hardness scale, making them a popular engagement ring choice due to their durability. One of the most iconic sapphire engagement rings in existence, belonging to Princess Diana, boosted the gemstone’s popularity during the late 80’s, deepening its ties to royalty and romantic commitment.
What are the characteristics of Sapphires?
Sapphires come in an array of colours ranging from well known deep blue hues to sunshine yellows and even pale lavenders. Sapphires are the most valuable blue coloured gemstone in the world, sought after due to the depth and range of their colour and also their hardness, which is second only to that of diamonds - the most durable gemstone on earth.
