...special gifts for special birthdays!

Jewelry and gifts inspired by birthstone colors with symbolic meaning are awesome ways to make your recipient feel as special and unique as their gem.

This birthstone chart is useful because if the recipient is not too fond of their modern birthstone color, this chart shows you options from the traditional, mystical, and ancient Ayurvedic birthstones.

You may find variations of these lists because cultures often had their own preferences and the exact stones were changed over the years, but this list is fairly accurate.

If you are having trouble choosing a stone based on your recipient's birth month, don't be afraid to choose a gem that symbolizes a quality you love in your recipient instead.
