The perfect gift for a friend, family member, or yourself is not so hard to find; birthstone jewelry is right for every occasion. Rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces featuring one or more birthstones have been popular options for years, and this trend is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, birthstones are making a big comeback this spring, making it a sentimental favorite for jewelry fans who want something colorful and unique that speaks to them.

A Calendar of Gems

In both Western and Eastern tradition, birthstones have been believed to symbolize certain character traits or to impart meaning. Nowadays, you don’t have to know much about the importance of each gem or stone to feel a connection to it or appreciate it; all you need to know is which stone represents which calendar month to determine your personal birthstone.

Over time, the stones may have changed, but here is the most recent association of birthstones to months, according to the American Gem Society:

  • January – garnet
  • February – amethyst
  • March – aquamarine
  • April – diamond
  • May – emerald
  • June – pearl
  • July – ruby
  • August – peridot
  • September – sapphire
  • October – opal
  • November – citrine
  • December – turquoise

The Possibilities Are Endless

All it takes to find a personal gift for your loved ones is knowing in which months they were born. From that starting point, you can find all sorts of sophisticated birthstone jewelry and casual pieces that are sure to spark joy for everyday wear and special occasions. Couples may want to incorporate their birthstones into birthstone eternity bands or wedding sets. Moms and grandmothers may cherish pendants or bracelets with the birthstones of their children or grandchildren. You can also treat yourself to simple birthstone earring studs or a delicate monogrammed necklace that speaks to you.
