Happy Birthday September!
Your traditional, and stunning, birthstone is sapphire. There’s no way around the ample beauty of this gorgeous gemstone.
Stick to tradition and look for the blue hued beauties – the shades of cool complexity. This is your time to celebrate you, so dive into the deep blue and make all your birthday dreams come true!
Though, sapphires are not only blue, they come in almost every color of the rainbow: red, pink, yellow, orange, green, peach, and violet colors. The most sought-after color fancy Sapphire is the rare and beautiful Padparadscha: a pink-orange corundum with a distinctive salmon color reminiscent of a tropical sunset. So step outside the box and choose a sapphire that is somewhere over the rainbow!
Each sapphire is totally and completely unique, though all measure a 9 on the Moh’s hardness scale (listed on this scale as corundum). Diamond comes in as the hardest material on Earth at a 10.
When picking your special colored sapphire, choose a color that is special to you, something that makes you feel good. It is your birthday, after all!
