Unique Birthstone Jewellery Made In The UK

I’m always looking for ways to make jewellery commissions special, little hidden ways that make a piece of jewellery unique to its owner, often birthstones can provide just that. Birthstone jewellery is the idea that a certain gemstone designated by custom, religious tradition or superstition is related to one’s birth date.  Over time many lists existed causing confusion on the matter so in 1937 the National Association of Goldsmiths of Great Britain produced this uniform list:

January – Garnet

February – Amethyst

March – Aquamarine

April – Diamond

May – Emerald

June – Pearl

July – Ruby

August – Peridot

September – Sapphire

October – Opal

November – Topaz

December – Turquoise

There are also lists of gemstones for each zodiac sign and other countries such as the U.S have their own version of the birthstone jewellery list, so if you are not fond of your own stone there is always a degree of flexibility if you look hard enough.

When a couple are getting married it can be delightful to have both birthstones inside the wedding band, perhaps as the decimal places between an engraved date, a small special hidden token of their unity.  To celebrate the birth of a child or grandchild birthstone jewellery can also add sentiment, I remember fondly creating a gold disc charm for a lady every time she was blessed with another grandchild, celebrating happy occasions with lasting symbols is a beautiful thing.  Birthstone jewellery bought to celebrate birthdays are of course another opportunity to show thought and care too, although birthdays in April may prove to be more costly!
