September's Birthstone: The Sapphire

Meet September's Birthstone - The Sapphire

The sapphire is a highly spiritual stone, thought to hold protective qualities. Sapphires are most recognisable in beautiful deep blue tones but can be found in a whole spectrum of colours dependent on the exact chemistry of each individual stone.

Perfect for everyday wear, sapphires are an extremely hard wearing gemstone.

At Otiumberg we offer a timeless collection of sapphire pieces. Our Otiumberg team favourites are the Ceylon Sapphire Huggie Hoops and White Sapphire Huggie Hoops.

The meaning behind sapphires

Sapphire jewellery has held various meanings and symbolic significance throughout history and across cultures. While some associations have remained consistent over time, others have evolved and adapted to contemporary interpretations.

Historically they have been associated with wisdom and knowledge and in ancient times. They were believed to offer insight and clarity to their wearers, allowing them to make sound decisions. Today sapphires are considered as symbols of loyalty, fidelity, and faithfulness making them a popular choice for engagement rings.

How to care for your Sapphire Jewellery

Sapphire is a very durable gemstone. Not only is it physically tough, making it difficult to scratch or break, but its colour is highly stable.

It's still important to treat your new gemstones with care to keep them looking their best however. We recommend to use a soft brush with soapy water to clean your sapphires. Our Jewellery care kit is the perfect companion to keep your sapphires looking lustrous.
