SEPTEMBER BIRTHSTONE IS SAPPHIRE
Sapphires symbolize nobility, truth and faithfulness, and are said to protect the wearer from envy and harm. Apart from the more recognised shades of blue, sapphires occur in all colours of the rainbow - the so-called “fancy sapphires.”
In ancient Greece and Rome, kings and queens were convinced that blue sapphires protected their owners from envy and harm.
Perhaps the most recognisable sapphire of our time is Princess Diana's royal engagement ring.... now known as Kate Middleton's engagement ring.
