Birthstones

BirthstonesAnyone who considers themself a fan of gemstones usually knows a little bit about birthstones. Typically we know our own and perhaps those of our closest family members, but if you want to know them all… here’s a list to refer to:

January Garnet
February Amethyst
March Aquamarine or Bloodstone
April Diamond
May Emerald
June Pearl, Moonstone, or Alexandrite
July Ruby
August Peridot
September Sapphire
October Opal or Tourmaline
November Topaz or Citrine
December Turquoise, Blue Topaz, Zircon, Lapis Lazuli, or Tanzanite

Why December has five or six birthstones is anyone’s guess. I heard they were thinking of changing it again to just absolutely anything blue.

Well here you have them, use this list as you will. We think birthstone jewelry makes a great gift that’s a bit personalized and lets people know you put some thought into it.

If you’re looking to buy quality loose birthstones, Embassy Emeralds of course can help you with emeralds, but you may not know that we also have sources for many other birthstones including sapphires, rubies, diamonds, citrines, tourmaline, amethyst, aquamarine, and peridot.
