September babies, we’re celebrating you this month. It’s a time of new beginnings, new leaves and new looks. Virgos, you’re the zodiac’s most caring sign. And Libras? We love you for your blissed-out nature and honesty. You’re good people to have around.
With such harmonious souls, it’s no surprise your birthstone is special. Rich, regal sapphire symbolises loyalty, nobility, sincerity, and integrity. Sounds about right.
Winding back a few thousand years. In ancient lore, Persians believed the earth rested on a giant sapphire that made the sky blue, while Ancient Hebrews believed that the Ten Commandments were engraved on tablets of sapphire. And early Christian kings were rocking sapphire-encrusted rings.
Sapphires are among the most durable natural elements on earth. In fact, the only other natural element that can scratch a sapphire is a diamond. They can withstand a lot and come up shining. Kind of like you.
Mostly, though, we’re all in it for the beauty of this stone. It sits effortlessly cradled in gold or silver in our September birthstone collection, looking striking on its own or leveling up any layering stack instantly. Our current favourite combo? You just can't beat a nameplate necklace, everyday chain, and this timeless sapphire pendant together.
Our favourite, though, HAS to be the modern fairy-tale of the Duchess of Cambridge receiving a 12-carat sapphire engagement ring from Prince William – once belonging to his mother, Princess Diana.
If it’s good enough for royalty, ancient scripts and the sky itself. Time to celebrate you - or the Virgos and Libras that make you. Explore our collection of celestial sapphires for September souls.
