Posted by James Harris on

Jay's Jewellery brings you this months birthstone, Sapphire.

Sapphires come in many colours, Blue, Pink, Yellow, Orange and Red. Red being what we call Ruby, are all part of the Corundum family of gemstones.

The term Sapphire, is believed to have its origins in the Greek term Sappheiros.

Sapphires are also the second hardest gemstone known, second only to Diamonds

Throughout history, sapphires have been believed to hold mystical powers, like warding off evil, or kings would wear them to protect them from their enemies.

Perhaps the most famous Sapphire engagement is Princess Diana's, now Princess Kate's. A stunning 12 carat oval Blue Sapphire surrounded by diamonds.
