August 05, 2019
When searching for the perfect gift the first thing a lot of people think of is Birthstones. However, traditional birthstones often create limitations and may not always speak to the intended wearer. For instance my birthday is in September and my traditional birthstone is sapphire, but its not really a stone i'm drawn to or have found myself wearing a lot.
I'm just going to shoot from the hip here and assume that if you're reading this, chances are you are into crystals and gemstone jewelry. Dazzled by their depth and beauty, little mirrors to the past and reflections of the present. Maybe you've been searching for the right piece that speaks to you or your loved one but haven't quite been able to find it ... well keep reading!
As I mentioned above, I found myself getting frustrated with my "traditional birthstone" and I wanted to see what was out there. That's when I found Zodiac Birthstones. I felt a deeper connection to these stones and I love that they allow for more options and some fun when searching for that special piece.
There are other birthstone charts as well. Such as the Modern, Mystical, and Ayurvedic. Each of these charts contain their own separate lists of stone in relation to birth months and we will explore those more in the coming months.
For now here's a little guide to zodiac birthstones:
