Birthstone Jewelry for Everyone
Birthstone jewelry has numerous origins in Western culture. One of these includes being part of a sacred breastplate worn by the ancient high priests of Israel. It was said that these breastplates had 12 stone adornments, each representing the 12 months of the year and the twelve signs of the zodiac. Read More
Considering the many different stories surrounding the historical origin of gemstone jewelry, the (American) National Association of Jewelers created a list in 1912 to standardize birthstones. This list has been updated a couple of times since. Although this list exists, many people have opted not to strictly adhere to it, selecting instead the gems based on personal preferences.
Whether or not you want to follow this standard list, you can be sure to find the gemstones you want here at Bliss Living.
Birthstone rings are a popular way of wearing your birthday gem. We have styles that go from the simple forms with a single birthstone, to more ornate designs like the Baguette Birthstone Band that can be stacked to represent not just yourself but your loved ones as well. Most of our rings are available in a choice of sterling silver, 10K or 14K yellow or white gold. And while giving a ring with the person's birthstone is already pretty personal, some of our styles can have further customizations such as engravings.
Birthstone necklaces and pendants are another way to bring in the lovely colors and hues associated with birthstones. If you want to remember your family in a special way, try doing it with alternating birthstones like in the All My Loved Ones necklace. Do you want to keep it simple? How about combining your birthstone of choice with a personalized charm? It's a great gift that will be treasured for years to come.
Birthstone bracelets are not as popular, but if you think about it, they're a great way to highlight the birthstone. The Family Togetherness Birthstone Bracelet is a great example and it comes in gold or sterling silver. With its simple, yet sophisticated design, it can be worn every day.
For a special gift, you can't go wrong with birthstone jewelry. And whether it's for yourself or a loved one, personalized jewelry always makes the piece truly unique.
