Miltons Diamonds Birthstone Guide
Birthstones are gems that relate to different months of the year. Each month has its own dedicated stone and each gemstone represents a different meaning or strength. Birthstones can also be related to each zodiac sign or star sign, and even the day of the week you were born on! Many people choose to give birthstone jewellery as a personal or meaningful gift.
The origins of birthstones dates back thousands of years, to a time when it was understood that gemstones could have an affect on the wearer. It was believed that each birthstone ‘offers’ the wearer a certain characteristic, such as wealth, good health and happiness. Today, the popularity of birthstone jewellery is still prevalent, making them popular gift options for jewellery fans.
We’ve put together a simple birthstone guide to help you find the right gemstone jewellery for a loved one – or even to discover what your own birthstone is and the meaning behind it.
