Celebrate September with Sapphires

We never need a reason to celebrate the gorgeous sapphire birthstone, but we pull out all the stops every September 1st. Though popular all year long, sapphire is also the birthstone for those born in the month of September. Did you know it is also 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. People have prized sapphires for their celestial blues and violets. Did you know you can actually find the beautiful September birthstone in any color, except red? Medium to medium-dark blue hues are the most coveted.
Some of the most famous blue sapphire engagement rings have been worn by Mary-Kate Olsen, Emma Slater, Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley, Princess Diana, and Kate Middleton.

Sapphire Folklore
Folklore tells that sapphires will protect loved ones from envy and harm and grant the wearer spiritual enlightenment and inner peace. In differing zodiacal systems, sapphire covers both Taurus and Gemini. The Ancient Greeks associated sapphire with Apollo. Violet sapphires represent the number three as well as old age. 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.

"We absolutely LOVE the Gold and Diamond Source! Debbie is by far the best in customer satisfaction and expertise. My husband bought my engagement ring and wedding band here about 6 years ago. We bring it every 6 months for service and cleaning....which of course has prompted us to buy other pieces of jewelry. They have the highest quality gold and diamonds with the best prices. And we have compared diligently and did our homework. They always honor their word with replacing and repairing anything that happens to any of our pieces because we are such loyal customers and bring our pieces in for service every 6 months minimum. I highly recommend you stop in and check out their selection Ask for Debbie... you will thank me, I promise!" — Robyn M. on Yelp
