Happy birthday, September babies! It’s time to celebrate this month’s birthdays in your life, which means it’s also time to hunt down the perfect gift. While jewelry is a tried-and-true gift option, you can take it one step further by gifting a birthstone-themed piece.
September’s birthstone is the sapphire. Known to be the second strongest gemstone next to the diamond, the sapphire has gained widespread popularity for its beauty, durability and elegance. The stone is said to attract abundance, blessings and gifts. It’s also known to spiritually protect against negative energy, calm the mind and strengthen intuition.
The gem is also associated with royalty. Who can forget Princess Diana’s stunning 12-carat sapphire engagement ring? Her son Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, proposed to his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, with the iconic piece of jewelry as a way of keeping his mother close throughout their wedding day celebrations.
Birthstone jewelry is a truly personal and memorable gift for those on the receiving end. Scroll for more on the best sapphire birthstone jewelry to gift those with September birthdays this year.
