Birthstones. They comprise one of the most popular factors when choosing jewelry for oneself, and easily adorn everything from rings to pendants. These gems and stones are a common way to add a unique and individualized trait to your favorite accessory.
Birthstone rings are popular, and as you might guess, feature the wearer's birthstone. Another type of popular birthstone jewelry is the Mother's Ring, which will most typically feature all the birthstone of the children belonging to a mother. Grandmother variations are sometimes seen, featuring all children and grandchildren of the wearer.
I've heard confusion once or twice about birthstones, and as such, deemed it worthwhile to share a little bit of information and clarification. The following lists each month and its birthstones. This includes a faceted stone (think of it as the shiny gem) as well as the determined cabochon (which one could think of as the polished stone or mineral). As a result, each month has two (or sometimes more) accepted birthstones, and this provides options when choosing jewelry for oneself or for another.
