Sapphire - September
Sapphire, the birthstone of September, is a stone said to inspire creativity and intuition. Since ancient times, Sapphires were said to represent the purity of the soul.
Most Sapphires are blue, from light blue to a deep indigo, but Sapphires are also found in colours such as pink, violet, yellow, green, and white. Sapphires are sometimes found with a six-sided asterism caused by inclusions of tiny, thin , needles of rutile. These Sapphires are called Star Sapphires and are very sought after.
The Sapphire is a very hard stone, second only to Diamond, so is suitable for everyday wear in, for example, an engagement ring. At David Dudley we stock an extensive selection of beautiful Sapphire jewellery.
