Birthstone Jewellery

Birthstone Jewellery

As you may already know, we’re pretty big on handmade gifts. There’s just something special about giving a gift that’s been chosen and made specifically for one special person. If you want to buy a personalised gift for someone, but you’re not sure what special moment or memory you want to celebrate, birthstone jewellery is a great alternative. Not only does a birthstone jewellery celebrate the month (and, some say, star sign) you were born in, but each stone also carries a meaning of its own. We’ve looked at the history of gemstones and learnt the attributes of each month’s gemstone:

January – Garnet:  signifies everlasting friendship and trust

 

February – Amethyst: The meaning of ‘Spirituality & Sobriety’ comes from the ancient Greeks.
