True Blue Sapphire: Celebrating the September Birthstone

I love September, and I know I'm not alone. September marks the autumn equinox -- when the last sunny days of summer give way to the beauty of fall leaves and the excitement of approaching holidays. In fashion, it's time to start gathering our boots, jackets, and hats. And in our continuing look at monthly birthstones, it's time to appreciate the true blue sapphires of September.

The velvety blue color of sapphire makes this gemstone a perfect match for the brilliant blue skies of autumn. Sapphires are one of the original precious gemstones, along with diamonds, rubies, and emeralds, so you'll find them in a lot of spectacular jewelry, usually surrounded by sparkling diamonds. Yet you can wear sapphires every day. This season, especially, turns up the shine factor with yellow gold, big rings, dangling earrings, and glittery pendants.

I love sapphire blue, but I don't have any! These are great ideas on where to start.

I've always loved sapphires! Even though my birthday's in October. I'd love to own a pretty sapphire ring.
