Guide by Month to Birthstones & Birthstone Jewellery


Birthstones are gemstones assigned to particular birth months, each birthstone having great symbolic meaning and powers. Birthstone jewellery has been popular since ancient times, many people believing that gemstones have incredible powers and, depending upon the type of stone, bestowing luck, longevity, good health and good fortune on the wearer. In the past, each month was associated with a single birthstone, but these days most months are associated with more than one. In times gone by, colour was the most important feature of birthstones as the sophisticated tools we have today to differentiate between different gems were not available then. For instance, they did not differentiate between a Ruby and a Garnet. Our list represents the modern birthstone list commonly used in the United Kingdom. Birthstone jewellery is very popular because of the desire to give and wear something beautiful of lasting value as well as something which has a personal significance. We have a wide range of beautiful birthstone jewellery including earrings, bracelets, necklaces and cufflinks suitable as gifts for your loved ones (or to treat yourself)!
