Tell Your Story with a Stone
Birthstones have been around since ancient times. Gemstones used to be distinguished by color, and in many cultures were thought to bring health, luck, and prosperity. The concept of twelve stones is thought to come from the breastplate of Aaron described in the Old Testament Book of Exodus as containing twelve stones representing the twelve tribes of Israel. This page is dedicated to celebrating your birth month with unique jewelry, hand-crafted by league-juried artists.
Taken from the Latin word “sapphirus” meaning “blue” or “blue stone,” sapphires not only come in blue but shades of violet, green, pink, yellow, orange, and brown. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed this stone protected their wearers from envy and harm. Sapphires represent purity, honesty, loyalty, and trust, making them popular engagement stones.
