September Birthstone

September Birthstone copy


The September Birthstone is Sapphire.  The word Sapphire is derived from the Greek word for blue. In early history all blue gems were called sapphire.

A very rare variety of sapphire is Padparadscha (named after a Lotus Blossom) which is a delicate pinkish-orange colour. It is the most rare and therefore the most expensive sapphire colour, and apart from Ruby, the only variety of sapphire to be given its own name.  Padparadschas are only found in Sri Lanka and are especially popular in Japan where they fetch high prices.
