The history of birthstones dates back to the first century and biblical times, when Josephus, a Jewish scholar, believed there to be a correlation between the stones in the breastplate of Aaron (as stated in the Book of Exodus), the zodiac signs and the 12 months of the year. The tradition was to keep all the stones and wear each one in its proper month, yet in the past few centuries, the practice is to wear just a single birthstone. In 1912, a standardized list of birthstones based upon the original list was agreed upon and there have only been a few changes since then. Customs of wearing birthday gemstones differ between countries and cultures; however, it is a revered worldwide practice that spans many generations. That’s why birthday gemstone jewelry makes a historically great gift.
