Birthstone of the Month – September

September is the month where the seasons start to change from Summer to Autumn. We start putting away our summer wardrobe and fill our drawers with comfy sweatshirts and pants. We replace our fun, fruity drinks with hot cocoa. It is also when the leaves start changing, Fall veggies are easily accessible, and the weather gets cooler. It is also the month of the Sapphire!

Sapphires are actually one of the earliest known precious gems and the name is derived from the Greek word “Sappheiros,” meaning “Precious Stone.” It has shown up all throughout history. In the Middle Ages, for example, Sapphires are said to preserve chastity, discover treachery and fraud, and protect from plague, poison, fever, and black magic.



Today, this precious stone is venerated all around the world, but nowhere more so than the East. Buddhists call it the Stone of Stones, and it is said to provide spiritual light, peace, and happiness to the wearer!

September is a very popular birth month for many of our favorite celebs, including Beyonce Knowles and Pippa Middleton! And if you were born in September, you are known for being suave, understanding, kind and sympathetic, trustworthy, and clever!

Why else is September so cool? Well, September 2 is National Beheading Day! Don’t like someone, well, now you have an official day to behead them! Other fun days include the 13th, which is Blame Someone Else Day, the 18th is National Cheeseburger Day (YUM!), and the 28th is the Ask a Stupid Question Day (but when do you need a day to do this?!).
