Jewellery Birthstones By Month
ME Jewellers – Jewellery Birthstones
Traditionally, each month of the year has a birthstone associated with it, being a gemstone which symbolises that month of birth, as outlined below. Giving a piece of birthstone jewellery makes a wonderful, personalised gift, and is also believed to bring good fortune to the wearer.
There are many myths and legends about birthstones and their purported healing powers and/or therapeutic benefits. Wearing/carrying the gemstone during its associated month was considered to heighten the stones healing powers or benefit. Thus, for the maximum benefit, it is considered valuable to own a jewellery piece for each of the 12 birthstones, and to alternate wearing them in the associated month.
Birthstone jewellery makes a meaningful, personalised gift, as the gemstones can be used in most jewellery pieces such as rings, earrings and pendants.
