BIRTHSTONE LIST

Find out your birthstone from our birthstone list below.

Many believe that the tradition of monthly birthstones ( and not zodiac birthstones ) is based on the breastplate of Aaron. It was a religious ceremonial garment set with twelve gemstones that represented the twelve tribes of Israel (corresponding with the twelve months of the year.)

There is some confusion as to which gemstones were set in that breastplate and because of that different cultures around the world have different birthstone lists.

We think that if you believe in the magical properties of your birthstone then choose from the older traditional ones like the ayurvedic birthstones or the traditional birthstones, otherwise, simply choose the gemstone you like the most.

  • Modern Birthstones-Adopted by the association of jeweler's of U.S.A. Mostly used in USA and Australia.
  • Traditional Birthstones- Mostly reflecting polish tradition.
  • Ayurvedic Birthstones -Originating from India.
