With a depth of colour that oozes sophistication and glamour, sapphire, the birthstone for September is undeniably beautiful.

With famous fans and style icons steeped in royalty, the sapphire has inevitably become the stone of choice for engagement rings, often replacing the diamond as a top runner for those looking for something a little different. A classic and timeless beauty, the Sapphire is a stone to cherish for years to come.

An exotic stone sourced from Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Myanmar, Tanzania and Australia the sapphire has long been associated with romance. Derived from the Greek word Sappheiros, the Greek aristocracy were thought to wear sapphires to protect against envy and harm, while clergy of the middle ages wore blue sapphires to represent heaven.
