What better way to celebrate a loved one’s birthday than with the gift of their own gemstone? No matter which month they’re born, everyone has a brilliant precious jewel dedicated to them. From sparkling red garnets for January to vibrant blue turquoise for December, birthstone-inspired jewelry is the perfect gift to show you care.

According to the Book of Exodus, the concept of birthstones is believed to have originated from the sacred breastplate of Aaron, a ceremonial priestly garment containing 12 colorful gemstones. Each jewel was thought to have represented the twelve tribes of Israel, or the twelve zodiac signs, and was later modernized to symbolize the twelve months of the year. Today, many different cultures wear birthstones as pieces of jewelry, and some believe that each precious stone contains its own unique magical properties. Whether you believe in the power of gemstones or not, they make an ideal gift that will sparkle on forever.

We’ve curated a list of giftable gems to correspond to each calendar month. From raw diamond earrings and garnet stone rings to emerald necklaces and sapphire bracelets, we’ve got an exciting treasure trove for you to choose from. And if jewelry isn’t your recipient’s thing, check out the gemstone inspired art prints, tote bags, enamel pins, and even soap bars.
