Well, aren't September babies in for a treat? You see, Sapphire, that mesmerizing gem, is the birthstone of this glorious month. And what could make a more splendid gift than a pair of these classic, stunning Sapphire-coloured Cubic Zirconia stud earrings? They come complete with 9ct gold posts and trusty butterfly clasps.

Now, let's have a quick chat about Cubic Zirconia (CZ), the sparkling star of these earrings. In the world of jewellery, CZ is like that well-known actor who can seamlessly fill in for the main star, in this case, Diamonds. Its journey into the limelight began when natural Cubic Zirconia was first discovered as an inclusion in Zircon crystals back in 1937. But it wasn't until the swinging 60s that scientists started experimenting to create CZ in the lab. By 1973, they'd perfected the process, and CZ became the dazzling, affordable Diamond simulant we know today.

What sets CZ apart, you ask? Well, it's tougher than many other Diamond simulants, and it loves to play with light, thanks to its high dispersion. But here's the thing: CZ is no pushover. It's got a higher specific gravity, which means it can withstand more wear and tear compared to a Diamond. When it comes to colour, CZ is a chameleon – it can be "doped" with different elements to produce a whole spectrum of dazzling hues.

So, there you have it, September folks. A bit of history, a dash of sparkle, and a whole lot of style in these Sapphire-hued CZ earrings. A perfect match for your special month!
