Birthstone Unicorns - Sapphire


Welcome September and happy birthday to all those celebrating this month. I have updated the sidebar with details of this months gorgeous birthstone, the sapphire.

The Gregorian Poem, by  an unknown author was first published in 1870 by Tiffany & Co. in a pamphlet  promoting their jewellery. The verse for this month reads;

A maiden born when autumn leaves
Are rustling in September's breeze,
A Sapphire on her brow should bind;
To bring her joy and peace of mind.

I have also added an extract from my Birthstone Unicorn Series  so click on the link or tab above to meet Sapphire the unicorn.
 
Birthstone flower this month  is the Aster.
 
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  11. Beautiful Gem! Next mmonth is my month and since every month has more than one birthstone, depending on how you look at it, I wonder which stone you will pick..hmmm...Rose quartz, opal, peridot?
