Birthstones are the gemstone that is associated with a persons month of birth. Birthstones have been part of our culture since ancient times as noted in biblical texts, folklore and ancient writings. Throughout history, birthstones have been attributed to bringing luck or good health to those who wear them, or having supernatural powers or magical properties. While the gemstones have changed and the colors associated with some of the gemstones have expanded, we still love the tradition of wearing our birthstones!
