The History and Significance of Birthstones

Ancient Origins

Birthstones have been around for centuries, dating all the way back to the Bible. The breastplate of Aaron, as described in the Book of Exodus, contained 12 gemstones that represented the 12 tribes of Israel. Over time, these stones evolved into the 12 birthstones we know today, with each one corresponding to a month of the year.

Meaning and Symbolism

Beyond their historical significance, birthstones are meaningful because they're thought to possess certain powers or qualities. For example, amethyst, the birthstone for February, symbolizes wisdom and courage. Turquoise, December's birthstone, represents good fortune and success. When you wear your birthstone, it's said to enhance your natural talents and strengths.

A Personal Touch

Jewelry featuring your birthstone is the perfect way to express your unique self. At Silver Luna, we handcraft one-of-a-kind pieces using natural gemstones and sterling silver.

Give the Gift of Birthstones

Birthstone jewelry also makes a thoughtful gift for friends and loved ones. When you give someone their birthstone, you're giving them a symbolic representation of their birth month and all the qualities associated with it. A custom birthstone necklace or bracelet is a gift that will be cherished for years to come. What better way to show you care?

Caring for Your Birthstone Jewelry

Yay, your new birthstone jewelry has arrived! Now it’s time to keep it sparkling like the gem it’s meant to represent. Caring for your natural stone jewelry is super easy and fun.

Keep It Clean

Gently wipe down your birthstone jewelry with a soft, damp cloth after each wear to remove any oils, lotions or debris. For a deeper clean, make a simple solution of warm water and a mild detergent. Soak your jewelry for just a few minutes, then use a soft bristled brush to gently scrub the stone and any gemstone accents. Rinse well with water and pat completely dry with a cloth. Avoid using ultrasonic cleaners, steamers or harsh chemicals which can damage the natural stones.

Store Properly

When you’re not wearing your birthstone jewelry, keep it in a lined jewelry box or pouch. This prevents scratches and tangles. Store pieces separately so gemstones don’t get scratched by contact with other jewelry. Keep your birthstone jewelry in a dry place away from extreme heat or cold.

Avoid Impact

Natural gemstones can be damaged by hard impacts. Remove your birthstone jewelry when doing housework, gardening or any activity where it could get banged or scratched. Take extra care when undressing and always put your jewelry on last when getting dressed.

Get Inspected

Have your birthstone jewelry inspected once a year by a jeweler to check stone settings and ensure there are no weak or damaged prongs. They can also polish and buff the metal to restore the bright shine. It’s a small investment to keep your cherished birthstone jewelry sparkling for a lifetime.

Caring for your natural stone birthstone jewelry is super simple but so important. Give it some regular TLC and your jewelry will glow for generations. Stay sparkly!
