The birthstone for September is sapphire. The deep blue stone is reminiscent of Royalty. And if natural sapphire isn't quite within budget, beautiful blue zirconia or Swarovski Crystal makes the perfect gift or treat to yourself.

September birthstone gifts are a popular choice for those who celebrate a birthday in the ninth month of the year.

September birthdays bring the beautiful mid to deep blue tone of sapphire. In the past September also had chrysolite as a birthstone, but today this month is firmly linked to the Sapphire birthstone.

What is the birthstone for September?

Sapphire is the most popular birthstone for September. Unlike other months which have up to three birthstone possibilities, sapphire is well known as the major September birthstone.

Although many people love sapphire in its pure, rich blue colour, did you know sapphires can also be also pink, yellow and green? In the Middle Ages the gem was believed to protect loved ones from harm and represent loyalty and trust.

Here are two more fun facts about this stone. Sapphire also commemorates the 5th and 45th wedding anniversary and is worn by the Duchess of Cambridge in a ring passed down by Princess Diana.

This makes sapphire or sapphire-inspired jewellery the perfect gift for a September birthday. It is also a very current trend thanks to the Royal Family!

Another fantastic idea for a birthday gift is a zodiac design. Birthdays from 1st to 22nd September fall under the Virgo zodiac sign. Those born from 23rd to 31st October are born under the Libra zodiac sign.

A zodiac pendant representing their birth date is also a great birthday gift idea. We love the dainty zodiac pendants that you can add to the Beginnings silver disc pendant or bracelet. It's a cute little personalised jewellery touch that represents their zodiac.
