If you are celebrating a birthday in September, you are lucky enough to call the sapphire your birthstone. Arguably one of the finest and most beautiful of all gemstones, the sapphire is more than just a pretty face. It’s also one tough cookie—the only gemstone more durable than the sapphire is the diamond.
Honored in ancient times for its reflection of heaven and its ability to ward against evil, the sapphire has more recently come to be revered for its powers of inner peace, positive energy and good health. It also happens to make stunningly beautiful jewelry!
Here are a few ways that you can remember a September birthday with sapphire style…
Celebrate her wanderlust with this sterling silver global compass charm necklace from designer Monica Rich Kosann. The best-seller, made of sterling silver, features blue sapphire and moonstone accent stones. Designed to inspire adventure, the compass is inscribed with directional points on one side, and the phrase “There are no foreign lands, it is the traveler only who is foreign” on the other.
You can’t go wrong with a classic, and it doesn’t get much more timeless than this gorgeous sapphire and diamond ring. A 1.30 ct. prong-set blue sapphire is the star; .71 ct. round diamonds sparkle as the supporting cast, surrounding the center stone in a halo style. Set in 18K white gold, this ring is sure to steal the show!
When we think of sapphires, we usually think of an intensely deep blue color. But the September birthstone is unique in that it actually comes in a whole rainbow of different hues.
She’ll be able to keep her little one and her birthstone close to her heart with the “Baby Feet” charm from Monica Rich Kosann. Featuring white sapphire accents in the feet and set in tarnish-resistant sterling silver, this disc pendant is a unique keepsake and a special way to mark the arrival of the next generation.
On the other end of the sapphire color spectrum is the black sapphire. The dramatic stone is featured in this contemporary piece from designer John Hardy. The sterling silver twisted chain bracelet sports a pusher clasp decked out in pavé-set lava black sapphires.
