Birthstone jewelry is always popular, and it’s one of the most-searched for items on the About Jewelry Web site, so I thought it would be fun to give you some birthstone shopping suggestions. Each link leads to jewelry made from specific birthstones. You’ll find a little bit of everything here, from pendants to rings to birthstone necklaces, all grouped to make it easy for you to compare features and prices. Gemstones are the most precious components of jewelry, coveted and sought after by almost all human beings as a potent means to enhance their personal power and authority. But, apart from this vitally important materialistic aspect, gemstones are widely believed to influence our life in some or the other way. The main source of the information collected in this study is based on the prevalent beliefs in society as well as personal individual experiences. One of the fascinations is the belief that a special stone is dedicated to each month of the year and was endowed with a particular virtue for those born in that month. Since ancient times, colored gemstones have been thought to possess certain mystical powers or the ability to endow the wearer with certain attributes. Because of these magical powers, they were extensively used as lucky charms and, as predictors of the future or as therapeutic aids.

Birthstone information arranged by month. Find birthstone facts quickly and easily with this index. Birth stones, as we know them today, is a list of stones that was first assembled in 1912 by the American National Association of Jewelers. This list has historical merit, but substitutions have been made, based on relative availability. People wore or carried gem stones at first, for their therapeutic and medicinal properties. These properties were then associated with characteristics of the zodiac, making them talismans for those born in the same months.
