The Statement Made Jewellery Guide to birthstones- Part 1

Here at Statement Made Jewellery we love to make sure that the special people in your lives get the most glorious gift ever. That is why we design and craft beautiful pieces of jewellery that are perfect for them.

One of the simplest ways that you can make sure that someone feels as special as you think they are is to buy them a birthstone based piece of jewellery. But what does each birthstone mean and what makes them special?

Here is the Statement Made Jewellery guide to birthstones.

January- Garnet

The wonderful think about Garnet is that it comes in a variety of colours, which means that if you are buying jewellery for someone born in January, then there are plenty of colour choices that you can make. Garnet is thought to have protective qualities. Not only protecting owners during the night, from nightmares, but also against any accidents that could happen far from home.

February- Amethyst

Back in the times of ancient Greeks and Romans it was believed that Amethyst was able to ensure that the wearer was quick-witted and clear headed. It has also been associated with a number of myths and legends over the years.  Amethyst is a beautiful colour which not only looks great with yellow and white metals, but also can brighten up any outfit.

March- Aquamarine

As the name suggest, Aquamarine means seawater. When you think of this stunning stone you will instantly think of the bright, blue colour. It has always been though that this stone, is a symbol of eternal life, hope, health and fidelity. However, if we are honest, we just love it because it looks beautiful!

April- Diamond

If you are lucky enough to be born in April, then you will be pleased to know that your birthstone is diamond. Diamonds are often a desired stone and have a long history of being given as a sign and token of love. Folklore used to state that diamonds were made from bolts of lightning struck rocks, which meant that they possessed some rather impressive healing powers.

May- Emerald

It comes as little surprise that the birthstone for May is a bold green colour. Perfectly matched to Spring and the early Summer, this particular stone symbolizes love and rebirth. Not only this but it was also thought to aid fertility. Emeralds are amongst some of the rarest gems, which means that if you really want to make sure that the special person in your life knows how special they are, then an emerald is what you buy.

June- Pearls and Alexandrite

Those people who were born in June are a little on the greedy side when it comes to birthstones. They have two, pearls and alexandrite. Pearls are a naturally beautiful stone and have a real elegant and classical feel. The rarer Alexandrite stone is one that claims to be able to change colour based on the lighting that is shone through them. Perfect for someone who wants something a little bit different.
