Recently we have had a few conversations that center around birthstones. I bought my mom a peridot necklace (birthstone for August) for her 60th birthday and I just picked up a ring made from topaz (November) which is my birthstone. Now that Hester has a baby on the way our conversations are now on Opals since that is the gem of choice for October birthdays.
We have come to the conclusion that April babies are the most lucky of all because they get diamond and I may have to adopt the Emerald as my second birthstone (a) because the colour looks rather nice on my skin tone and (b) it happens to be the stone that coincides with my half birthday which falls in May!
Since today is the first day of September I thought I would dedicate this post to all things Sapphire, the birthstone for the ninth month. I am beginning to realize that you don’t have to splurge on fancy jewels to represent your birthstone colour. Why not go the modern route and select a fashion inspired choice instead? A dress, handbag, shoes or costume jewellery in Sapphire would look rather lovely wouldn’t it?
