Today there is a standardized list of Birthstones; those gemstones were selected in 1912. Birthstones can be a great gift with special significance for loved ones or they can be used to represent the birth of a new baby. However, one thing we are consistently hearing clients say is “my birthstone just isn’t my color” or “I wish my children had more complementary Birthstones.” If you feel that way about your birthstone, you’re not alone!
Luckily, there’s more than one way to bake a cake.
Birthstones have been given as gifts for thousands of years, long before our 12-month traditional calendar was in use. Birthstones were once based on your zodiac sign. This is excellent news if you’re not happy with your birth month color.
In the coming months, we will be doing a story about each of the gemstones according to zodiac sign!
