Birthstones are becoming more and more popular in the designs of jewelry, so we would like to go a bit deeper into this phenomenon.
A birthstone represents the month someone is born in, so there are 12 birthstones. It celebrates your birthday with a deeper meaning that is specifically for you and has positive properties.
A birthstone piece of jewelry is always a good idea if you are looking for a gift, because everyone has a birthstone and jewelry gets more emotional value when you receive it as a gift from someone.
For centuries, it was believed that crystals contain magical powers, which could have a positive effect on the owner of the crystal. In the middle ages, people believed that every stone had healing powers and positive effects if you wore the right one in the matching month. Therefore they collected all the birthstones, to be lucky all year long.
In the oldest eras it started with assigning beautiful rare crystals to the 12 star signs. Later on it changed into crystals that symbolized the 12 months, which we now call birthstones.
How to wear it
What better way to wear your birthstone with you as the ultimate lucky charm, than to wear it in a piece of jewelry?!
Birthstones are used in rings, bracelets, necklaces or earrings. The best is to wear the stone directly on the skin, for example a ring with an open bottom setting instead of closed.
