Did you know that the qualities of people born in each month of the year are represented by a specific gemstone? Astrologers have attributed a gemstone for each month of the year. In fact, the mention of birthstones can also be found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. For instance, In Exodus, you will find that the priest Aaron wore a breastplate decorated with 12 different gemstones, each representing one of the 12 tribes of Israel. In ancient times, gemstones were believed to have protective and healing powers for people born in different months. That is why they came to be known as birthstones.

Even today, birthstone jewelry makes for excellent birthday gifts. So, if you’re looking for a special gift for yourself or a loved one, take a look at these exquisite birthstone-based necklaces.

Garnet is the birthstone for January. So, pick a gemstone necklace designed with garnets, such as our sterling silver checkerboard pendant necklace in garnet and white sapphire.
