BIRTHSTONES LIST
 
A PLANET-WIDE APPRECIATION OF BIRTHSTONES CELEBRATED BY 
DIVERSE PEOPLES WORLDWIDE OVER THE MILLENNIA

* * * * * * * * * *

BIRTHSTONES HAVE A COMPLEX HISTORY.  Some believe that the original connections between 
gemstones and the months of the year evolved from twelve stones that were mentioned in the Bible. 
Others hold different beliefs.

IT’S THOUGHT THAT THE CUSTOM OF ACTUALLY WEARING BIRTHSTONES to celebrate 
months or days of their birth may have originated either during the late Middle Ages or early Renaissance.

OVER THE CENTURIES, specific gemstones were associated with signs in the zodiac and then eventually 
with months of the year. Across time and across the planet, gemstones set aside as birthstones by peoples 
of diverse global cultures have come to be varied, yet sometimes similar.

BIRTHSTONE DESIGNATIONS that I found actually have roots in modern, traditional, mystical, ayurvedic, 
sun/star signs, zodiac, talismanic, planetary, society-based, cultural, religious, as well as jewelers’ lists.

THE BIRTHSTONE LIST BELOW FEATURES the familiar (or traditional) birthstone of each month, but 
also lists multiple gemstones that I researched for each month to honor the beliefs, customs, celebrations, 
and long-held traditions of diverse peoples worldwide.

Please note that this birthstone list is intended purely for entertainment purposes only.  I hope you enjoy!
