Here is your complete birthstones guide.
Explaining the Birthstone and Birthstone Ring
Each month of the year has a specific gemstone connected to it. The idea of giving each month a different birthstone ring is not an ancient practice. In fact, the modern birthstones were decided by various mystical groups in the period 1890 to around 1920 when the matter was finally settled.
There was much controversy about this, because association of a person with specific energies lies at the heart of many mystical practices and beliefs. Much experimentation with astral travel and vision experience was used to ensure that the correspondence between the date of a person's birth and the energies of the relevant star sign were properly and truly correlated. This is critically important because stones that do not align with a person's birth-sign can be worse than useless and even cause mental discomfort and unease.
ecent and Ancient Developments in Understanding your Birthstone Ring
While the widespread use of birthstone rings is a recent development, people have used birthstones to represent astrological periods since the beginning of written history.
In ancient times, the High Priest of the Israelites wore a breastplate adorned with 12 gemstones.
Josephus, a first-century Jewish historian, believed that these gemstones signified the 12 months of the year and the 12 different zodiac signs.
For many years, people in various cultures believed that the birthstones were directly related to the astrological signs. It was still not common practice to wear your own birthstone ring or pendant.
However, in the eighth century, gemstones were assigned to each of the 12 apostles. Around this time, some Christians began wearing the corresponding gemstone for the apostle each month.
Historians believe that the concept of wearing your own birthstone ring or pendant may have started in the 1700s in Poland or the 1500s in Germany.
Commercial Interference in Defining the Birthstone Ring
The true esoteric meaning of birthstones and their powers was a long guarded secret. Sadly though, and as is always the case, commercial interests began interfering in the accepted definitions for the simple reason of wanting to selling more birthstone rings!
To help increase the sale of gemstones, the National Association of Jewelers decided to create a standard set of birthstones. In 1912, members of the association met in Kansas and created the modern birthstone list, which was updated again in 1952.
While some of the birthstone rings have changed, fortunately many have remained the same. For example, garnet, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, and topaz remain the same as they were in the 15th century.
There are also many people that prefer to use the gemstones connected with their astrological sign. As there are 12 zodiac signs, there are also 12 gemstones, many of which correspond with the birthstone for those born in the same month.
For example, the official birthstone ring for January is garnet, which is also the gemstone for the Aquarius.
We consider this guide to be accurate and based on original meanings developed over centuries.
