The bright blue of the sapphire it renowned for its beauty! I love featuring September’s birthstone in lovely pieces of jewelry, especially because it is more than just an elegant stone with an interesting history and cool properties!
A maiden born when September leaves
Are rustling in September’s breeze,
A sapphire on her brow should bind
`Twill cure diseases of the mind.
The blue of sapphire is often the source of its popularity and the theme of legends. With its Latin name meaning “blue,” the ancient Persians believed that the earth rested on a sapphire. The sky reflected off of it, making it a brilliant azure. According to lore, the Christian ten commandments were written on sapphire tablets, making them the ideal stone. It represented heaven and faith, which is one of the reasons why kings and high priests loved to adorn themselves with the stone.
I do not carry a huge selection of sapphires, but I can’t keep away from the small, faceted and opaque sort! I find them to be wonderfully unique and the dark – almost navy- blue to complement many different people and allow sapphires to be worn more casually. (It’s also cost effective!) Here are some examples of this handsome stone. Like always, if you like something, let me know or order it on Etsy! Furthermore, if you would like a custom piece featuring a sapphire that you have or want, go to my custom jewelry page!
