Celebrating Your Birthday With Sparkling Brilliance!

For centuries, people have associated birth stones with specific months of the year.  While I am very skeptical of the metaphysical significance behind the birthstones, I do like the idea of associating a specific stone with a birth month.  Since birthstone jewelry has remained popular, I created a simple earring design, which allowed me to be flexible in incorporating the various stones.

However though, seeing the cost of some of the rarer stones, costs have prevented me from using most of the traditional birthstones in my jewelry.  (and unless I find a diamond mine in my backyard, I’m afraid that people with April birthdays are out of luck.)

Fortunately though, the Swarovski Crystal Company has associated crystal colors with birth months.  I’ve included the complete list with pictures of my earring design.  Enjoy!

January-Garnet, February-Amethyst, March-Aquamarine

April-Crystal AB, May-Emerald, June-Violet

July-Ruby, August-Peridot, September-Sapphire

October-Rose, November-Topaz, December-Blue Zircon
