September Birthstone


Sapphire, the September birthstone, has to be one of the easiest gemstone colors to wear with any wardrobe. This eloquent gem has been popular since the Middle Ages and according to folklore, will protect you from envy and harm, relieve mental tension and dispel depression. Sapphires are said to align the physical, mental, and spiritual planes and restore balance within the body. When worn in a necklace, they are known to ease creativity and self-expression. History says that in ancient times, sapphires were known as the "wisdom stone". Each color of Sapphire brings its own particular wisdom, while it is supposed to release mental tension, depression and unwanted thoughts. Sapphire gemstone is also good for helping solve problems and particularly aids in sexual relationships because it tends to make deep bonding between people and creates loyalty. Sapphires are well known among the general public as being blue but can be any color and are actually found in a range of colors. In my years of designing jewelry blue is by far the most popular color for sapphire but pink, orange, yellow, white, and even black have generated much interest in the jewelry market. The Blue Sapphire is traditionally associated with purity and love. Yellow Sapphire attracts wealth and brings prosperity to the home. Pink Sapphire clears emotional blockages bringing peace and unconditional love. With all the vibrant colors and symbolic meanings, it is not a surprise that Sapphire jewelry has been popular throughout the ages of time.

11-Carat Pink Diamond

from Tanzania Expected

 to Sell for $21M+

Named the “Williamson Pink Star,” it is the

second largest internally flawless fancy vivid pink

ever to appear at auction.

Sotheby’s will offer the “Williamson Pink Star” diamond as a standalone lot during its Oct. 5 art auction in Hong Kong.

The diamond was named in homage to two other famous pink diamonds—the record-setting “CTF Pink Star”

and the 23.60-carat brilliant cut “Williamson” gifted to Queen Elizabeth II in 1947.

London -  Sotheby’s unveiled an 11-carat fancy vivid pink diamond expected to sell for upwards of $20 million in a single-lot auction in October. Dubbed the “Williamson Pink Star,” the diamond is the product of a 32-carat rough stone unearthed at the Williamson mine in Mwadui, Tanzania, the country’s only major diamond mine that is known for its “bubble-gum pink” stones. Diacore bought the diamond for $13.8 million, or about $427,000 per carat, from mine operator Petra Diamonds in December 2021. At the time, Diacore Chairman Nir Livnat described it as a “rare masterpiece of nature.” The company, which has cut a number of high-profile blue diamonds including the “CTF Pink Star” and the “De Beers Cullinan Blue Diamond,” was able to craft the 32.32-carat chunk of rough into a 11.15-carat internally flawless cushion-cut diamond that is graded fancy vivid pink. Sotheby’s said it is the second largest IF fancy vivid pink diamond ever to appear to auction. The largest is the 59.60-carat CTF Pink Star, so named by its purchaser, Chow Tai Fook. The Chinese jewelry giant paid $71.2 million for the diamond in April 2017, and it remains the most expensive diamond, colored gemstone or jewel ever sold at auction.

brilliant cut pink diamonds. It is estimated to sell for $21 million or more.

Sotheby’s estimates the Williamson Pink Star, which is less than a quarter of the size of the CTF Pink Star, will sell for less overall—$21 million—but the auction house says it has the potential to set a new price-per-carat record for a fancy vivid pink. The “Winston Pink Legacy” currently holds that record at $2.7 million per carat. Wenhao Yu, chairman of jewelry and watches for Sotheby’s Asia, told National Jeweler in an interview Tuesday that the estimated hammer price for the Williamson Pink Star reflects both the quality of the diamond and the current market, where pink diamonds, particularly larger ones, are sought after. He said gemstones like the Williamson Pink Star continue to hold their value because of their beauty, rarity and durability, even as NFTs gain steam as alternative investment vehicles and more companies that deal in luxury goods—Sotheby’s included—embrace them. He pointed to the “great” sale of the De Beers Cullinan Blue Diamond in April, $57.5 million against an estimate of $48 million, and the auction house’s overall growth in jewelry sales as evidence. “This kind of rarity still holds value, especially the natural pieces from the earth,” Yu said.
