Scintillating Sapphires

9.4.18_banner2_blog September babies have sapphire as their birthstone, a gem of wisdom and royalty. These blue beauties are credited as being the gemstone of creative expression, meditation, and inner peace. Sapphires are said to protect their wearers from fraud and treachery, and to ward off illness. According to legend, wearing a gemstone during its appointed birth month heightens its therapeutic and talismanic effects, whether it’s your own birth month or not! So fortunately, we can all benefit from the mystic charms of the sapphire this month (and of course they're not too shabby to look at either). Sapphires are the second most durable precious gem after diamonds, making them optimal for daily wear. Generally, we think of sapphires as being deep ocean blue, but actually they can occur in every color of the rainbow except red (red sapphires are considered rubies – both stones are varieties the same mineral, corundum). Read on to see our favorite picks for sapphire stunners in all their majesty!
