September Birthstone: Sapphire

Sapphires have been used for protection for thousands of years. Since 800 BC, they have been used to protect their wearer from witchcraft and harm. It is also regarded as bringing peace of mind and security, guarding innocence, promoting good health, and bringing joy and fulfillment. Perhaps this is why Prince Charles chose to give Princess Diana a sapphire engagement ring, causing the popularity of sapphire rings to soar.

The only stone harder than sapphire is diamond, making it a great choice for an engagement ring that can be worn for a lifetime. A meaningful gift for anyone born in September would be a piece of sapphire jewelry.
