Sapphire pendant from Jan's collection.

Birthstone Jewelry Feature: September Sapphire

Janice Stiles

I don't know about you but I sure know quite a few people with September birthdays! Birthstone jewelry is always such a thoughtful present, and I am excited to tell you all about... 


Sapphire

Sapphire, the September birthstone, and one of the “big four” gems has been prized since 800BC! 

Sapphires come in all colors except red, however, the deep beautiful “cornflower” blue is what most people think of when looking for a sapphire.

Sapphire is very hard, at 9 on the Mohs hardness scale, just below diamonds and moissanite. Because of this, it has industrial applications as well as gemstones. For instance, my glasses are sapphire glass and don’t scratch like the old ones used to.

Sapphires can be natural, (often heat-treated) or lab-created. Both are beautiful stones, and the natural will likely have some inclusions (faults) but the lab-created stones will not. Both are equally as pretty and it’s difficult to tell them apart.

Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. I have created a small sapphire pendant for September, and I especially encourage those of you with loved ones who have September birthdays to consider ordering one!
