September birthstone gift guide
Those born in September have the privilege of choosing between not just one, but two gorgeous birthstones:
The blue sapphire symbolises truth, prosperity and fulfilment.
The word sapphire comes from the Greek word sappheiros meaning "blue colour." It is forever associated with sacred things and considered the gem of gems, a jewel steeped in the history and lore of nearly every religion.
The blue sapphire is equally mesmerising in its raw state.
The blue sapphire, often known as the Royal Sapphire, is favoured by royals, famously being used in the engagement ring of Princess Diana and subsequently that of Princess Catherine.
The pink sapphire symbolises love, strength and forgiveness.
Throughout history pink sapphires have been symbols of love.
Queen Elizabeth II is well known for her stunning brooches, one of them a huge pink sapphire floral design she is frequently seen wearing.
Grace Kelly, the American actress who married Prince Rainier III of Monaco, was world known for her elegance and sense of style. Precious pink gemstones combined with diamonds were always Princess Grace's favourites.
