Striking Sapphire Jewels to Celebrate September
The September birthstone is sapphire–a precious gemstone long associated with royalty.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, wears an 18-carat white gold engagement ring featuring a Celyon blue sapphire as her engagement ring, previously belonging to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. Queen Elizabeth wore a small suite of Victorian sapphire jewels on her wedding day as a gift from her father, King George VI. And the list continues…
Elegant, classic, and glamorous, you can never go wrong with a sprinkling of sapphires, which is why it’s one of my favorite gemstones.
Here are my selections for striking sapphire jewels to celebrate September, with a little nod to royal tradition.
