What Does Your Birthstone Say About You?
What is My Birthstone?
Birthstones are gemstones that signify one of the 12 birth months. They include stones of all different colours and types.
Birthstones are historically tied to biblical symbolism, zodiac signs and celestial bodies. Many religions throughout the world tie special meanings to birthstones, believing that specific stones bring harmony to the wearer. Today, birthstones are loved by people of all ages and cultures for their beauty and symbolism. In 1912, the National Association of Jewellers released an official list of birthstones by month. They kept customs, symbolism and accessibility in mind when designing the official birthstone list. The list has been updated over the years and is still recognized as the standard birthstone chart.
Each birthstone brings different meanings and unique symbolism. Explore your month’s birthstone to find out more about its special meaning.
