September birthstone is.. the sapphire!  What gorgeous blues, dark as ink, or bright as the sky. They even surface as white, yellow and pink! Sapphires are one of the four precious gemstones, the others are ruby, emerald, and diamond.

"A maiden born when autumn leaves 
                                                                      Are rustling in September's breeze,
                                                                      A Sapphire on her brow should bind;
                                                                      To bring her joy and peace of mind."

What does the sapphire have in store for YOU? Wear these precious gems and you will shine in truth, glory and constancy.  To be steadfast in your beliefs shows commitment, even in times of strife, for without constancy you have nothing, only transient views of a life that could otherwise be lived so much more deeply. The healing powers are deemed to help with fever, inflammation, cancer and burns. On a good day, the sapphire has been said to call on the powers of Venus, and guard against evil lurking in the shadows.

This design is quite captivating, it pulls you in to go deeper, to get lost in its comfort and serenity.

The sapphire word is derived form the Greek sappheiros, meaning precious stone.
