Birthstones make the perfect gift for a special person on a special occasion. They are a thoughtful gift and obviously there is a different stone for each month, so make sure you get the right one.
They are generally best as a birthday gift, however, you could choose someone a birthstone gift for a Christmas gift or Mother’s Day gift. Most birthstone gifts are pieces of jewellery with the stone, but there are other ideas too.
Birthstones have a historical significance and seem to date back to biblical times and the first selling of gemstones based on the person’s birth month was in Poland in the 18th century by Jewish gem traders.
Birthstone jewellery makes a really precious and special gift that the recipient is sure to treasure for years to come. Many of the stones are gorgeous, vibrant colours that will bring joy and happiness when given as a gift.
Birthstone jewellery will be unique as a stone is never exactly the same. You can make your birthstone jewellery even more special by personalising the jewellery with a message of love or their name/initials engraved into the piece. A really beautiful and unique gift idea that has had a lot of thought put into it is lovely to receive.
I would say the majority of birthstone gifts are jewellery of some sort although maybe a photograph frame embellished with the stone would be something different. The majority of birthstone gifts are aimed at the female market, however, maybe a pair of cufflinks with some stones in could work for a male.
