Sapphires, birthstone of September, are a girl's best friend not only for their breathtaking hues also because what they symbolize; honesty, loyalty, purity and trust! They are one of the most popular gemstones and widely used in bridal wear as well.
When hearing the word Sapphire many people immediately envision a stunning violet-blue gemstone because the word “Sapphire” is Greek for blue. Typically, sapphires appear as blue stones, ranging from very pale blue to deep indigo, attributed to the presence of titanium and iron elements. The most valued shade of blue is the medium-deep cornflower blue. But sapphires are not only blue, they come in almost every color of the rainbow: pink, yellow, orange, peach, and violet colors. These different colors are caused by trace elements that make their way into the crystal.
The major sources for sapphire are Australia, Cambodia, Madagascar, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Myanmar (Burma), and even Montana in the United States.
