Guide to Birthstones: September – Sapphire


Since sapphires are extremely hard gemstones–measuring a 9, on the Mohs scale, second only to diamonds–they are a perfect gemstone for fine jewelry. The stone, which is also prized for its rich deep color is also a symbol of loyalty, nobility, sincerity, and wisdom. Sapphires are known for their vibrant depth of color and good transparency. These stones are also said to channel higher powers, encourage self-discipline, and focus the mind of the wearer. While most people are familiar with blue sapphires, they also come in the colors of the rainbow, with pink sapphires gaining in popularity. These colored sapphires are known as “fancies.”
