It's all about the stone

Birthstones

While we typically associate birthstones with a specific month of the year to mark a life event, these gorgeous little gems have long been revered for their healing powers. Legend has it that wearing a birthstone within its assigned month boosts the stone’s powers, and to fully benefit, you should wear the appropriate birth stone every month to take advantage of them all.
