Rainbows For Fall: Multicolored Sapphire Jewelry


Rainbows are a hot topic on the spring and summer, our typical time to embrace a whole lot of bright color. But September should actually be the month of rainbow jewelry, considering its birthstone: sapphire.

Sapphire is beloved in blue, and most often associated with that “default” color. But more consumers are becoming enchanted with its fancy array of colors, too, and can you blame them? Any gemstone that can make a rainbow on its own—with no assistance, no filling in the gaps from other colored stones—reigns supreme in my book. And that’s precisely what sapphire does.

Of course, some pieces use ruby and tsavorite to fill in the gaps and make their rainbow hues appear brighter, and that’s a beautiful thing. But sapphire does a brilliant job of emulating a rainbow on its own, so it’s common to see a bit of both.

Many are fortunate to have more than one birthstone option, should one wish to wear or collect their special designated gems. But imagine the luck of a September baby, who not only can claim one of the most beautiful, versatile precious gemstones there is, but can also do so without having to choose just one color. Few other stones offer such an incredible privilege.
