September - Sapphire
For centuries the sapphire has been associated with peace, patience and sincerity. Royalty would wear the stone to stop envy and for protection against other evil.
So adored and so blue, it was believed that the world rested on a large sapphire that reflected upwards, forming the beautiful blue sky.
Bringing peace to the mind and body, they are believed to help in mental illness and inflammatory disorders. Shavings of sapphire were used by the wealthy as part of a treatment for fevers. Now, we think it’d be a waste of such lovely gems…
Could you see yourselves in a sapphire design? Lee Renee Jewellery sources conflict free gems so you can be confident that what you are wearing is both beautiful and ethical.
We've used white sapphires in a range of our designs as alternatives to diamonds, but if you're after the deepest blue, all our gem-set pieces can be custom made for you with a sapphire instead of whatever stone is currently in place- check out our pieces here and then just email us at email@example.com with your bespoke request.
