Birthstone Jewelry & Their Significance - Part II

Birthstone jewelry is among the most special gifts, as they are perceived as being thoughtful and are classy with a personal touch. Birthstones are believed to heal the wearer by bringing you the healing properties of the planet they represent. When these gemstones are set in jewelry, they are cut in a way that they touch your body, which is believed to have the power to keep you happier and more relaxed.

There are 12 birthstones, corresponding to the 12 months of the year. We had discussed the importance of the first six birthstones in Part I of our blog. Here, you can learn more about the significance of the other six.

Ruby (July)

Ruby comes in various hues of red, from a vivid red to purplish red. It is symbolic of love, passion, and intense affections. The gem is said to promote wealth, knowledge, and good health. Wearing a ruby is said to make you more compassionate and loyal, while increasing your creativity, concentration, and energy.

Some More Sparkle

Can I wear my birthstone daily?

This depends on the stone's hardness, determined by its rank on the Mohs Scale. The hardness rank is 9 for ruby and sapphire, 6.5-7 for peridot, 5-6.5 for opal, 7 for citrine, and 6-7 for tanzanite. This means that ruby and sapphire are the most durable for everyday wear, followed by citrine, peridot, tanzanite, and opal.

Can I wear the birthstone of a month in which I am not born?

Why not? Birthstones are popular not only for their healing properties, but also for their brilliant glow. Birthstone jewelry is an excellent choice as they perfectly complement a range of outfits and looks.
