Sapphires of Every Color

If you are lucky enough to have a September birthday, you can pick from a multitude of colors for your birthstone. 

Sapphire is a variety of the gem species corundum, the red variety of corundum is ruby. In the middle ages sapphires were believed to protect loved ones from the influence of envy and attract blessings. Clergy wore sapphires to symbolize heaven.

Sapphire, the September birthstone comes in a rainbow of colors. The most popular and prized being a deep royal blue.  One of my favorite types of sapphire jewelry is to mix multiple colors into a graduating pattern of blues, greens, purples, reds, yellows and pinks. 

Here are a few examples of multi-colored sapphire jewelry.
