Birthstones for the Birthday Queen
Birthstones and birthstone jewelry have long been traditional gifts — with the exception of April (diamonds), the other eleven months use colored gemstones to signify the month in which you were born. Depending on your birth month, you may even have multiple options for stones or gemstones that come in a variety of colors! September's sapphires aren't limited to blue but also come in pink, yellow, chocolate, and even black. June has two gemstone options — alexandrite and moonstone. Even though some gemstones like garnets (January) and topaz (December) are commonly seen in just a few shades, they actually come in many hues. Have fun with your jeweler choosing your favorite stone for the most special birthstone jewelry.
Blues in All Hues
Most gemstones occur naturally in more than one color; the most common shade may only be the easiest to source. Sapphires, tourmalines, and topaz come in a rainbow of colors. Amethyst, aquamarine, emeralds, and many others have different levels of saturation, from very light to rich, dark shades. If you're not totally in love with the colors of a stone but want the symbolism and significance of that particular gemstone, ask your jeweler if they can order additional colors or hues. The beauty of shopping at Jon's Fine Jewelry is that no matter your color preference, there's a piece of gemstone jewelry for you.
Whether you're trying to be more eco-conscious or you don't think it's worth going into debt for a diamond but still want a naturally-occurring stone, clear gemstones are gaining traction and popularity as diamond alternatives. Colorless sapphires and moissanite are the most diamond-like gemstones and have much of the durability, hardness, and sparkle that diamonds do. Other stones like morganite and aquamarine don't have quite the same colorless qualities, but they catch the light in the same way a diamond would. For your next purchase, why not try an aquamarine ring or a pair of moissanite earrings to mix it up a little?
Mother's rings, and the less-common but still beautiful mother's necklaces and bracelets, are a touching way to say "I love you." Mother's keepsake jewelry features gemstones to represent the month in which each child was born; for small families, the parents' birthdays can also add a nice touch to bring more color and variety to the jewelry. While rings are the most traditional, consider cluster earrings or a custom pendant instead. When styling mother's jewelry, don't be afraid to get creative — engraving initials, names, or birthdates can add a special touch and make the piece truly yours.
