    Trivia Facts: Sapphires

  • Originally discovered in India and Thailand – but now known around the world – sapphires occur in a variety of colors, ranging from pinks and oranges to deep violets. It is the brilliant blue color, however, which is the most popular and thus the most valuable variety.
  • Sapphires have always been associated with universal and divine connotations. In fact, Ancient Egyptians believed the blue color of the sky came from the reflection of celestial sapphires.
  • Sapphires were cherished among priests and kings during the middle ages because they symbolize wisdom and purity.

    Here’s a Tip: To create birthday bouquets incorporating sapphire blue flowers, consider delphinium, larkspur, iris, orchids, or forget-me-nots.

  • This September flower derives its name from its star-shaped petals (Aster means “star”). The flower is related to both the daisy and the sunflower.
  • Like sapphires, asters come in a wide range of colors – but every color has the same yellow disk center.
  • The aster blooms in late summer and early fall, making it the perfect symbol of September birthdays.
