Sapphires: Regal, Royal Blue September Birthstone
Happy Birthday September Babies!
We look forward to September because we love to spotlight the gorgeous blue sapphire gemstone. The traditional birthstone for September birthdays (also a traditional gift for the 5th, 45th and 70th Wedding Anniversary) blue sapphires are prized for their rich, royal color.
Color is the most important element in valuing blue sapphires. Consistent, rich, bright blue tones, neither too dark, nor too light, are prized and highly valued. The sapphires in this sophisticated and classic Ben Garelick "Criss Cross" band are a great example of the royal blue sought after when selecting sapphires.
Smaller blue sapphires are combined in fine fashion jewelry like this eye catching pave set contemporary sapphire, diamond and white gold wide ring and waterfall necklace by Gabriel. See all of our gorgeous sapphire fashion jewelry here: Sapphire Jewelry.
Sapphires are also lovingly used as accent stones by engagement ring designers Amavida, Gabriel, Simon G., Kirk Kara and Barkev's. See our selection of sapphire and diamond engagement rings here: Sapphire Engagement Rings.
Because sapphires are nearly as hard and durable as diamonds they make an excellent alternative center stone. Famously the glamorous Princess Kate wears an amazing sapphire engagement ring. If you'd love a hand selected sapphire center stone, any of the engagement rings at BenGarelick.com can be customized with a brilliant blue sapphire in any shape or size.
