Birthstones are gemstones used to represent the month of birth.
The idea of birthstones dates back centuries, believed to have originated in the Old Testament. Particular stones assigned to each month can be dated back to the 15th-20th century, though the stones have changed through the years. Nowadays you will find multiple stones for each month listed with modern birthstones varying by where you live.
Below features a birthstone for each month, using a mix of traditional and modern birthstones.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming birthstone jewellery.
Some birthstones are available in store now:
