Folklore

In the Middle Ages, sapphire was thought to represent the tranquillity of the heavens. It was thought that it had the power to give peace and friendship to the wearer as well as suppressing impure thoughts.

It is considered the most spiritual of the gems as it is considered that it mirrors the blue of heaven. The Bible states that the Throne of Heaven was made up of Sapphires.

The Persians thought that the earth rested on a giant Sapphire and that its reflection caused the sky to be blue.

It is associated with magical powers such as the ability to heal wounds.

The Sapphire is the birthstone for September, signifying serenity and truth.
 “Out of the depths shall Sapphires come
For September’s child to have wisdom” (unknown source)

It is associated with the 45th wedding anniversary.
