Symbolic and individual objects that we hold close to us
Birthstones are precious and semi-precious gemstones, which are associated with the months of our births. They have been used for over two thousand years to bring luck to their wearer, but now often serve to remind us of special people and special events in our lives. People also associate them with particular personal qualities, and with ability to bring healing. Many want to combine their birthstones with that of partner or family into a unique piece, which can work very well.
The Traditional Birthstone list contains older birthstones, while the Modern Birthstone list is more twentieth century. There are many alternative versions. Birthstones can also provide a FUN, SURPRISING and UNUSUAL colour palette!
