The Gem of Faithfulness – The Sapphire

September babies are lucky indeed – their birthstone is the beautiful sapphire. Although typically thought of as a rich, blue gem, sapphires actually come in all colors except for red which are called rubies. Sapphires symbolize sincerity, truth, faithfulness and nobility.

Royalty have worn sapphires for centuries. The sapphire became a symbol of royal love when Britain’s Prince Charles gave Lady Diana a 12-carat blue sapphire engagement ring. The ring has since been given by Prince William to Kate Middleton when he proposed.

Sapphires are the gem commemorating the 5th and 45th wedding anniversaries as well. Stop by Bridgewater’s to find your perfect sapphire!
