Birthstone Necklaces

Birthstone necklaces are a great way to wear your birthstone. Worn as a pendant, your birthstone touches your skin directly and provides a continuous flow of energy to be absorbed by all areas of the body. Also, placing the gemstone pendant from the birthstone necklace on your body allows you to connect to the earth’s energy.

In fact, the earliest mention of birthstones can be traced back to an item worn similarly to a necklace: a breastplate. Aaron, the founder of the Israelite priesthood, was the first high priest to wear this breastplate. Twelve different stones adorned it, each representing one tribe of Israel. These stones were believed to possess considerable power.

Some 500 years later, the historian Joseph would come to see a connection between the 12 stones on the breastplate and the 12 months of the year. Still, the modern tradition of wearing birthstone jewelry wouldn’t begin until the 16th century in either Germany or Poland.

Today, birthstone jewelry has become highly popular, especially in the form of birthstone necklaces and bracelets. These beautiful jewelry pieces are commonly given as gifts to commemorate special events like birthdays and Mother’s Day. Besides buying a birthstone necklace for mom, getting a family birthstone necklace containing multiple stones has become a popular trend.

What Birthstone Necklace Should I Buy?

In modern tradition, more than one gemstone represents each birth month. The National Association of Jewelers standardized the list of birthstones in 1912. It includes modern birthstones and birthstones that have been traditionally associated with each month.

When purchasing a birthstone necklace, you can choose between the gemstones based on your taste, the look you’re going for, and views on birthstone jewelry history and tradition. There are also alternative birthstones based on astrological signs, seasons, guardian angels, and even birth hours.

However, if you’d like to stick to tradition, here’s the list of classic birthstones for your birthstone necklace:

  1. January: Garnet
  2. February: Amethyst
  3. March: Bloodstone
  4. April: Diamond
  5. May: Emerald
  6. June: Pearl, Moonstone
  7. July: Ruby
  8. August: Sardonyx
  9. September: Sapphire
  10. October: Opal
  11. November: Topaz
  12. December: Turquoise or Lapis

Since the original birthstone list, some changes were made, primarily based on the availability of the gemstones. For instance, Citrine was added to November as the more accessible option, and Jade started being used as an alternative to Peridot for August.

If you want to surround yourself with your birthstone for good fortune, you can find it in various forms, such as crystal cubes, spheres, hearts, pyramids, and worry stones.
