Birthstones Of The Month - Celebrate a Birthday With a Beautiful Jewel

Birthstones are precious or semi precious gemstones usually held in the form of jewelry, such as rings, necklaces or pendants. Each birthstone represents a month, date, day of the week or zodiac sign. Most commonly in the western world a birthstone represents a month of the Gregorian calendar.

Birthstones are of special interest to gemstone lovers and the association of specific gemstones with months of the year goes back centuries. As the famous gemologist G.F. Kunz noted in his book, The Curious Lore of Precious Stones, "There is no doubt that the owner of a ring or ornament set with a birthstone is impressed with the idea of possessing something more intimately associated with his or her personality than any other stone, however beautiful or costly. The idea that birthstones possess a certain indefinable, but nonetheless real significance has long been present and still holds a spell over the minds of all who are gifted with a touch of imagination and romance."
