Sapphires, the birthstone of September, get their name from both the Greek and Latin words for blue. It was believed by the ancient Persians that this precious stone was the reason the sky was blue and that it resembled the color of the sky just after the sun went down. Whether you’re celebrating a September birthday or showing your love for a 45th wedding anniversary, there is a sapphire perfect for you.
Symbolically, the stone represents purity and loyalty. In the middle ages, it was also believed that the sapphire suppressed negative thoughts and harm. In fact, kings often adorned sapphire necklaces for this reason. The stone can also provide self-improvement, it is said that the gemstone is to have transformative powers that work quickly and provide drastic results when connecting to the universe spiritually. Contrary to common belief, sapphires are not just blue. They also come in vibrant shades of yellow, pink, orange, and violet. In fact, there is no difference between in sapphire and a ruby aside from their color. Scientifically, they are the same compounds.
You can find the most prized stones in Burma, Kashmir, and Sri Lanka. Gemstones that appear heavily saturated and velvety in color are the rarest and pure form of the sapphire and are reflected in its higher price.
