From amethyst in February to sapphire in September, birthstones have an incredible history most recently developed by astrologers working with the 12 zodiac signs.
The origins of birthstones has been traced back to one of religious beginnings and can be found recorded in the Bible where Aaron, Moses’ brother, and highest priest of the Isrealites, was instructed to create a breastplate adorned with gemstones - twelve Gemstones to be exact, each representing the twelve tribes of Israel. Later writings and scholars throughout time made connections between the 12 stones in the Breastplate and the 12 signs of the zodiac (we’re sensing 12 should be a new lucky number?) and humanity has since found ways to connect the therapeutic and talismanic benefits of the 12 stones alongside the zodiac signs. It was in 1912 that the modern day list of birthstones was defined, and has remained unchanged since.
Whilst most people like to wear their birthstone as a pendant necklace, we’ve got endless options to allow you to incorporate your specific stone into your jewellery in any way you wish.
