Top Birthstone Questions Answered

Can you wear a different birthstone?

Birthstones are known to reflect and enhance the traits inherent in those born in the associated month. But there are no fixed rules. If you are attracted by the qualities or colour of a different birthstone to your own, then feel free to add it to your jewellery collection. However, it is believed that the stone’s power may be greatest when it correlates with the wearer’s birth month.

Who came up with birthstones?

Birthstones have a rich heritage, having been worn to symbolize and enhance certain traits since the 5th century. This practice continued for centuries, but it was not until 1912 that the American National Association of Jewellers officially standardized the list of birthstones that we use today, combining ancient traditions with contemporary stones.

Is birthstone by month or zodiac?

While birthstones by month and zodiac share several similarities, there are differences in the way that they are connected to the wearer. Each calendar month has its own birthstone, as does each zodiac sign. You may wish to incorporate both birthstone shades into your jewellery collection or choose the stone that resonates most strongly with you.

What is a birthstone?

Traditionally, birthstones are gemstones infused with meaning that are associated with a birth month. Empowering, expressive, and personal, each stone is said to enhance the wearer’s inherent qualities, while inspiring strength, energy, and good fortune.
