The Significance of Birthstones

Birthstones have been around since ancient times.  Traditionally linked to the zodiac, they were believed to possess a supernatural force that could protect the owner or wearer of the stone.

However, modern birthstones are linked to calendar months, each month having its own unique gemstone with its own special properties. Each birthstone has its own unique color and meaning, describing the possible characteristics of the person born during that month. Over time, birthstones have acquired different meanings; despite these slight alterations, influenced by culture and beliefs, the symbolic essence of the birthstones remain.  Intrigued with these stones, many people love to wear jewelry set with them.

Crystal birthstone equivalents are as follows:

  • January–Garnet
  • February–Amethyst
  • March–Aquamarine
  • April–Diamond
  • May–Emerald
  • June–Light Amethyst
  • July–Ruby
  • August–Peridot
  • September–Sapphire
  • October–Pink Tourmaline
  • November Yellow Topaz
  • December Blue Topaz

I have a complete inventory of crystal birthstone bracelets in two sizes in my Etsy shop.  Check them out HERE.
