Birthstones: spiritual, thoughtful, loving gifts
Birthstones are ideal gifts for all occasions. Every month has its own birthstone which
is said to be lucky or important for people born in that month. The concept of birthstones
is common to most cultures and there are different stones attributed to the months,
depending on which belief system you are following. The birthstone calendar used
in this guide is one of the most commonly used in the UK, but you can find many
different variations around the world.
Birthstones add an extra, fun dimension to buying presents for birthdays,
anniversaries, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Christenings or any other
occasion. Whether it is jewellery set with a birthstone, such as
necklaces, pendants, bracelets and rings, or just the stone itself,
giving someone a birthstone present is showing that person that
you have taken time and thought your purchase through.
