SEPTEMBER BIRTHSTONE:
SAPPHIRE

While sapphires occur in a variety of colors, their most notable blue shade has long been associated with the Heavens in both Eastern and Western culture. This connection to the universe positions sapphires as the gemstone of faith, purity, and wisdom. In ancient Greece, they were even thought to protect against evil and were worn to represent intelligence, strength, and courage.
 
As these precious stones continue to symbolize both power and kindness, they remain a favorite of royals, perhaps most famously in Princess Diana's engagement ring, now worn by Catherine, Princess of Wales.
