Everyone knows that birthstone jewelry makes gorgeous and unique gifts. But do you know how each birthstone came to be linked to certain calendar months? Gem scholars (yes, there is such a thing!) actually trace the birthstone tradition back from the Old Testament of the Bible. Moses’ brother Aaron, a high priest, is often described as wearing a breastplate adorned with twelve different gold-set gemstones. These gemstones represented the twelve tribes of Israel, but over time the stones became associated with certain calendar months.
There are also many non-Christian variations of birthstones, including Mystical birthstones, which are of Tibetan origin and date back over a thousand years, and Ayurvedic birthstones, which are from the ancient Indian medicine and philosophy dating back to ancient India (1500 BC). Birthstones have also been tied to ancient Pagan religions and even to the collective wisdom of the legendary lost city of Atlantis. The modern birthstone list (the one we all know and love) was officially adopted by Jewelers of America in 1912 and is most widely used list in the United States.
