Sapphire – September’s Birthstone

JB Star Sapphire and Diamond Ring

Ah, we love the deep blue color of sapphires!  As September’s birthstone, sapphires represent nobility and faithfulness.  The Greeks named this gem “sapphereiros” meaning blue. Many ancient civilizations believed that the world was set upon an enormous blue sapphire, which made the sky blue with its reflection.

Sapphires come in a wide variety of colors from deep blue to pink, purple, clear, orange, yellow and green. The blue sapphire is the most sought after and the most valuable. The sapphire is second only to the diamond in hardness and can be worn everyday mounted in an engagement ring or right hand ring without worrying about scratching or damaging the stone.  Read on for our favorite looks in sapphire jewelry.
