The History of Birthstones

Most of us have heard of the idea of birthstones , but did you know that the concept is not a new one? It actually dates back to Biblical times and The Breastplate of Aaron. His breastplate contained twelve precious gems. Each gem had a gold setting and a name of one of Israel’s twelve tribes engraved on it. It is believed that the gems on his breastplate were a Ruby, Topaz, Emerald, Turquoise, Sapphire, Onyx, Opal, Amethyst, Agate, Malachite, Tarshish, and Laspis. There is some controversy over the exact gems as this was so long ago and different scholars interpret these old texts differently. In any case, it is believed that Aaron’s breastplate is the foundation of today’s concept of birthstones. Today’s traditional list dates back to around 1912, although it was updated by the Jewelry Industry Council in 1952. They also added Tanzanite in 2002 as an alternate. In order of the months in the year the U.S.’s birthstones are: January is Garnet; February is Amethyst; March is Aquamarine; April is Diamond; May is Emerald; June is Pearl or Alexandrite; July is Ruby; August is Peridot; September is Sapphire; October is Opal or Tourmaline; November is Topaz or Citrine; and December is Zircon, Turquoise, or Tanzanite. Many myths and legends through history give specific healing powers to the birthstones. It is also believe that each birthstones represents specific characteristics of those born in that month. A poem was passed down and then published in 1870 speaks of the birthstones and special characteristics of each month. It is referred to as The Gregorian birthstones Poem(s). Today people wear birthstones in various forms. Earrings, necklaces, pendants, rings, and bracelets are all very popular. Body piercings, anklets, and even toe rings can also be found for the various birthstones.

Baby and Children’s Jewelry

Just like birthstones have a long history so does the idea of babies and children wearing jewelry. Young people throughout the centuries for a variety of reasons have worn jewelry. At some points during history jewelry showed wealth or status, at other times it was simply for fashion or decoration. Myths or superstitions also played a part in the use of jewelry by children. Various gems were used to protect children from sinister spirits and ghosts, germs and disease, and even poor luck. Jewelry for children has been made out of everything from bones, to seashells, to precious metals, and gems. In centuries past everything from bib clips, to pins, to more traditional bracelets, necklaces, and rings were popular in the area of children’s jewelry.
