Know the Significance of Your Birthstone in Choosing Jewelry

ringBirthstones have been in use even before the birth of Christ. It wasn’t until very recently, however – in 1912 – that the American National Association of Jewelers decided to publish a list linking certain stones to each month. This “birthstone list” is still used today.

Consumers love birthstone-themed jewelry, and they have become very popular as a result. A simple internet search yields thousands of hits to online and brick-and-mortar jewelry and gift stores offering single pieces and matched sets.

The Significance of Your Birthstone

This short list will give you insight into the historical and personal significance of various precious stones as birthstones.

  • Garnet. January’s stone signifies constancy, with faith and love as accompanying attributes. It is a stone that provides guidance.
  • Purple Amethyst. The birthstone for February is worn to denote royalty. It has co-occurring attributes of serenity, peace, and temperance.
  • Blue aquamarine. Blue aquamarine, March’s birthstone, is a stone associated with youth and health. Love and hope are accompanying attributes.
