September's birthstone is the beautiful sapphire. In lore, sapphire symbolizes nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. Ancient Greek and Roman kings and queens were convinced that blue sapphires protected their owners from envy and harm. Traditionally, people have prized these gems for their celestial blues and violets. Its extraordinary color is the standard against which other blue gems—from topaz to tanzanite—are measured. Blue sapphires range from very light to very dark greenish or violet-ish blue, as well as various shades of pure blue. The most prized are a medium to medium dark blue or slightly violet-ish blue.
