September birthstone jewelry features brilliant blue sapphires, which were once thought to possess magical powers. In ancient times, many believed that the visible sky was actually an incredibly large sapphire that the Earth was somehow wrapped inside of! It’s no surprise that this gem – with a hue that evokes thoughts of the skies and seas – is still one of the most popular choices for jewelry.
Legends says that sapphire jewelry’s influence showed in how much sparkle the gem has; a strong sparkle indicates a strong ability to inspire honesty, fidelity, wisdom, and love. Sapphires come in a variety of hues, but rich blue sapphire birthstone gifts are the most popular. RedEnvelope has blue sapphire birthday jewelry, and gorgeous pink sapphire fashion jewelry.
Shop September birthstone jewelry for loved ones born in early autumn! The connection between sapphires and the month of September goes back for centuries. Jewelers published a birthstone poem in 1870, and it devoted one verse to this pairing. It said that “A maiden born when autumn leaves/Are rustling in September's breeze/A Sapphire on her brow should bind/To bring her joy and peace of mind.” Many women choose sapphire engagement rings or wedding bands, which may serve as their “something blue” at the ceremony. The most famous sapphire wedding ring once belonged to Diana, Princess of Wales. It was passed down to eldest son William, and is now being worn by William’s wife.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has perhaps the most infamous of all family jewelry perched on her ring finger. Both of these women have oft been referenced as both proof and denial of sapphire’s reputed ability to “bring her joy and peace of mind”.
