September birthstone earrings can be set with raw Sapphire, faceted Sapphire or deep blue colored beads. Always check when reading jewelry descriptions whether the beads or crystals are simply a sapphire blue color or the actual natural Sapphire gemstone. There are also lab created sapphires which emulate natural conditions to grow flawless crystals in a laboratory. All are equally beautiful and it just depends what you prefer.
The alternative September birthstone is Lapis Lazuli which is a stone and not a crystal - so you won't find faceted Lapis Lazuli as this requires a crystalline structure.
