BIRTHSTONES

You probably know what your birthstone is, but do you know just how beneficial it can be to your life?

From healing properties to luck and protection, there are countless reasons to know your birthstone and incorporate it into your daily life.



WHAT IS A BIRTHSTONE?

For the uninitiated, your birthstone is a gemstone that corresponds to the particular month you were born.

WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF BIRTHSTONES?

Many historians believe that the concept of birthstones first originated from the Breastplate of Aaron, which is described in the Book of Exodus in the Bible.


This ceremonial religious garment contained 12 unique stones, one to represent each of the 12 tribes of Israel. However, these stones also corresponded to the 12 months of the year and the 12 zodiac signs. 


In the 5th Century, Christian scholars connected the dots between the Breastplate of Aaron’s gemstones and their representation of certain months or zodiac signs. From there, they believed that those who wore their birthstone would reap the benefits of wealth and health in their life.

WHAT ARE THE BIRTHSTONES FOR EACH MONTH?

According to the modern birthstone chart, these are the birthstones for each month of the year.
