Birthstones are a special gemstone associated with the month that an individual was born in. While some of you might not know what your birthstone is, your birthstone can reveal a lot about your personality.
The origins of birthstones date back to the earliest days of Abrahamic religion, specifically the Book of Exodus. There was a mention of Aaron’s breastplate containing twelve different stones, which was a connection between the twelve months of a year and the twelve zodiac signs. Over time, practice became to keep twelve stones and wear one a month. In 1912, the National Association of Jewelers standardized the list of birthstones to the ones seen below.
