    Sapphire – Natural, Faceted, Red, 7.78 ct

    Sapphire comes in many different colors, not just classic blue, as this set of 17 oval-cut sapphires demonstrates. It's not just the September birthstone, either. If you're a Taurus or named Paul, or if you were born in the 10 AM hour or on Thursday, you could make sapphire one of your alternative birthstones. 7.78 ctw, Sri Lanka and Myanmar. © Rob Lavinsky, www.iRocks.com.
