We now find ourselves in the ninth month of the year, oh and what a year it has been. A big warm welcome to September and if you’re been following our blogs then you know that each month we feature a birthstone / decorative closure. September is definitely a special one as it brings the mightysapphire symbolising nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. Many have predicted that this gem helps people to focus, improves their self-discipline and helps to canalize spiritual powers. 


People born between September 1st to September 22nd are members of the Virgo sign and are said to be one of the zodiac's most understanding and caring signs. For those born between September 23rd to September 30th, they are members of the Libra sign. Those born under the Libra sign can be identified by their organized and harmony-driven personalities.


For centuries, the sapphire has been associated with royalty and romance, that comes at no surprise because of its royal blue colour and ‘oh so’ shiny exterior. The association was born in 1981, when Britain’s Prince Charles gave ablue sapphire engagement ring to Lady Diana Spencer commonly known as Princess Di. Her engagement ring consisted of 14 diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue Ceylonsapphire set in 18-karat white gold. It was created by then-crown jewellerGarrard. The design was inspired by Queen Victoria's sapphire-and-diamond cluster brooch, a wedding present from Prince Albert in 1840, which Victoria donned that day as her "something blue". So as you can see, the sapphire is synonymous with the royals too.


The sapphire has also been worn on the robes of many clergy members for centuries. According to Coster Diamonds, hindus wear the sapphire during their confession of faith and the Buddhists believe to become Enlightened by wearing a sapphire. The early Christians used to cherish the sapphires in church rings. They believed in the protecting characteristics of the blue stone as well. Historically Jews believed the ten commandments were engraved in sapphire tablets. Therefore, the blue stone was sacred to them. It wasn’t until later they found out that the tablets were probably made from Lapis Lazuli. This is another kind of blue gemstone. Lapus Lazuli and Sapphire get often mixed up, but Lapus Lazuli is older.


When you think of sapphire, it’s probably a blue stone that comes to mind. But did you also know sapphires come in many other colors? Purple sapphires are one of the least well known of the sapphire family, and certainly one of the least appreciated. Very spectacular stones, and far rarer than their traditionally recognized blue cousins, purple sapphires are the best kept secret you need to know about now! Purple Sapphires are believed to awaken consciousness, enhance intuition and have the power to bring wealth.
