Birthstones are the precious and semiprecious gemstones assigned to each month, each offering its own symbolic and historical significance to those born in its month. The popularity of birthstones dates back to ancient times when it was believed that gemstones held incredible powers. In fact, folklore told that wearing one’s birthstone could bring about strong protection. Traditionally, each month was assigned a single gemstone, but as you’ll see below, there are now a few months that even boast multiple  birthstones.

Gifts of fine jewelry featuring a loved one’s birthstone are popular because, like astrological or other zodiac signs, they hold deep personal meaning and encourage us all to embrace our unique, vibrant personalities. One thing is for certain: you don’t have to be a gemstone expert to find the perfect birthstone gift.

Let us help you choose (or create) a gorgeous piece featuring a little piece of you or your loved one.
