Birthstone Background:

Birthstones are gemstones that are associated with each month. They may be Precious stones, such as Diamonds, or Semi-precious, such as Lapis Lazuli. In each case they are considered lucky for their particular months and for those who believe in such things their healing powers are heightened during their months.

Of course, Ladies might argue that wearing Diamonds at anytime is a good thing! Since each Birthstone has heightened powers during its month then some people buy a set of all twelve and rotate them for each month.

The Modern Birthstone List contains the official Birthstone list from the American National Association of Jewelers. These gemstones were officially adopted in 1912. In the US, this is the accepted list.

The Traditional Birthstone list contains older Birthstones and is sometimes combined with the modern Birthstone list. These stones reflect societal Birthstone traditions, heralding back to the 15th century. (Many jewelers have differing lists of traditional Birthstones, but the Birthstone colors will be very close from list to list.)

The Mystical Birthstone list is of Tibetan origin from over a thousand years ago.

The Ayurvedic Birthstone list is from Ayurvedic Indian Medicine - a type of medicine used for over a thousand years.

Many people decide to go with jewelery that combines several Birthstones into one item, a Birthstone bracelet, for example. Others prefer single stones. The Birthstone chart, below, will help you find the Stone you need as well as the correct combinations of that particular Birthstone.
