Month Stones and Birthstones in the Overview

Gemstones have not only a material value. The month of birth determines which stone can accompany us through life as a source of strength. These birthstones, it is said, have very individual properties that can have a strengthening effect on their wearer.
How did today's birthstones come into common use? In 1912, the Jewelers of America (a non-profit jewelry association) created an overview of the months and the corresponding reference minerals in order to cope with the multitude of monthly stones.

Jewelry with birthstones makes a great birthday gift because it is personal and shows that the recipient is important to you.

Gemstones have a special energy that can help change your life.
