September’s birth stone is Sapphire.  Sapphires are also used to celebrate a 45th Anniversary.

Some believe the healing properties of a sapphire are Wisdom, Love, Loyalty and Spiritual Development. Known as the Wisdom Stone the different colours of each stone bring’s its own type of wisdom and additional attributes.

Sapphire is commonly associated with the colour blue. When Jewellers use the word “sapphire” they are generally referring to the blue sapphire, however if they state a colour before the word sapphire they are referring to a particular colour of sapphire.

The name Sapphire is believed to come from the Greek word “sappheiros”. It is also believed the ancient Romans and Greeks elite thought the wearing of the sapphire would protect them from envy and harm.
