September is for Sapphires

September is for Sapphires

It's September! time to talk about Sapphires 💎

I have a special fondness for this colorful stone, probably because it's my birthstone, but also, blue is one of my favorite colors and the most common association with sapphire even if there are many other beautiful colors. Coincidence? who can tell...
Did you know that sapphires have long been associated with royalty? In fact, many historic royal engagement rings, including Princess Diana's and now Kate Middleton's, feature sapphires. This gemstone symbolizes nobility and truth.

Sapphires come in a rainbow of colors, not just the classic blue. From vibrant yellows to stunning pinks, sapphires offer a diverse palette of hues. The most famous blue sapphires, however, are often referred to as "cornflower blue." Red sapphires are usually rubies. (for more on rubies, check out the blog post for July)

Sapphires are one of the hardest gemstones, second only to diamonds. This exceptional hardness makes them not only beautiful but also highly durable, perfect for everyday jewelry.

Now, let's delve into some metaphysical and magical properties:

Sapphires have a reputation for enhancing mental clarity and wisdom 🦉. They are believed to stimulate your mind, helping you to make sound decisions and see the truth in challenging situations.

Sapphires are associated with bringing inner peace and serenity 🧘🏻‍♀️ . They are thought to calm the mind and promote mental balance, making them ideal for meditation and mindfulness practices.

Sapphires are my birthstone too. I absolutely love their blue shade, it is just so mesmerizing. I was given a miniature version of Princess Diana’s ring as a graduation gift from my grandmother which I treasure to this day. Thank you for the great blog on them, it’s neat to learn the history and mystical aspects of our birthstone!
