Happy birthday, September born-babies!

Popular all year long, sapphire is the birthstone for those born in the month of September. But did you also know it is a traditional anniversary gift for four wedding anniversaries? Learn more about this beloved, royal blue stone below.

Popular since the Middle Ages, the sapphire is a classic favorite of royalty, clergy, celebrities and fine jewelry collectors. September's blue birthstone ranges in color, but medium to medium-dark blue hues are the most coveted.
Some of the most famous blue sapphire engagement rings were worn by Princess Diana, Kate Middleton, and Elizabeth Hurley.

Sapphire Folklore
Folklore tells that sapphires will protect loved ones from envy and harm and grant the wearer spiritual enlightenment and inner peace. They are believed to offer healing properties for rheumatism, colic, and mental illness. Sapphires are also considered an antidepressant.

Sapphires as Anniversary Gifts
For couples looking for a traditional anniversary gift, sapphires are given for the 5th, 23rd, 45th and 65th wedding anniversaries. Couples celebrating these milestone anniversaries might consider a sapphire anniversary band that can be worn with the bridal set.
