September's Flavor of the Month

I wanted to share with you a little bit about one of my fav stone the Sapphire, September's birthstone.

The sapphire comes from the Latin word "saphirus" meaning blue. Symbolizing truth, commitment and sincerity.

Many of us who watched Princess Diana wedding will also remember the breathtaking sapphire engagement ring that Prince Charles gave her, bringing back the sophistication and class of the sapphire stone.
If you haven't had the chance to see a beautiful sapphire "The Star of India" you have to make a special trip to the Natural History Museum in New York City. You will also find the the exquisite sapphire, The Bismark Sapphire which measures 98.6 carets and is adorned by diamonds. The second largest sapphire, displayed at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC, The Logan Blue Sapphire which measures 423 carets.

You can also find sapphires in many different natural colors, like yellow, white, green, pink, purple and the rare star sapphire. (which I will explore at a later date).

I put together a glam inspiration images that speak for themselves.

Hope you enjoy!
