Birthstones


Countless myths and legends abound about birthstones, with many believed to hold protective and holistic qualities. Undeniably beautiful, they hold a special place in our lives, often marking occasions and milestones. Discover the meaning behind the stones and explore our gemstone collections.

January

Garnet


The January birthstone is Garnet, and one of the most diverse gemstones. This unique gem comes in an extraordinary variety of shades, including green, orange, pink and purple, but is most commonly known for its deep pomegranate-red hue. Garnets traditionally represent confidence, energy and willpower, with those born in this month having a spontaneous love of adventure.

February

Amethyst


Amethyst, the February birthstone. Thought to keep the wearer clear headed and sharp-witted, this gemstone, representing peace and serenity, has been present in religious and royal jewellery for centuries. The amethyst is known for being associated with those who are intelligent, with a pure mind of positive and empathetic thoughts. With a simple word or calming presence, they can set others at ease.

March

Aquamarine


Evoking clear skies and calming waters, Aquamarine is the birthstone for March. Most stones range in colour from green to blue, with dark blue stones the rarest. Aquamarine is said to summon a sense of calm in the people who wear them. Commonly associated with figures from history known as great communicators, deeply valued for their compassion and honesty.

April

Diamond / Quartz


Those born in April are fortunate enough to call the Diamond their birthstone. The gemstone prized world over, seeped in history and incredibly hard to break, Diamonds traditionally represent innocence but also a strong moral compass. Equally illustrious is the twinned stone for this month, Quartz; symbolising spiritual growth, spirituality, awareness, and wisdom.

May

Emerald


With its enchanting green mirroring the splendour of spring and the birth of new life, the May birthstone Emerald couldn't be more perfect. It is said that Emeralds evoke feelings of love and compassion, encouraging a balanced mind in the wearer. Emeralds have historically held a lore of romance, empathy and renewed love.

June

Moonstone / Pearl


Moonstone and Pearl share the title of June birthstones. Pearls, immersed in mythology and lore, were once claimed to be the teardrops of mermaids and are often associated with far off lands, mystery and travel. Moonstones likewise boast a unique history; once claimed to have been pieces of fallen moon, they are associated with luck and good fortune. Moonstones come in a variety of iridescent shades from yellow, peach and pink to grey and green and are said to represent the shifting phases of the moon.

Whilst we rarely use Pearl in our jewellery, you can talk to us if you’d like to use Pearl in something special.

July

Ruby


The Ruby is known as the King of precious gems and those born in July are lucky enough to call it their birthstone. Its iconic deep red has always inspired passion and love throughout history. Rubies are said to radiate energy, granting protection and fortune to the wearer, making them the choice for nobility the world-over. With their alluring depth and with such vivid colours, it is no wonder why Rubies are one of the most precious gemstones that we hold dear.

August

Peridot / Spinel


Those born in August are exceptionally fortunate to have both Peridot and Spinel as birthstones; both come in a plethora of colours, from enchanting pinks and forest greens to deep lilacs and oceanic blues. Peridot, whilst found in the Earth's surface, is one of the only gems known to be found in meteorite, quite fitting as it was known by the ancient Egyptians as the ‘Gem of the Sun’. Spinel has long been associated with the Root Chakra of the body, said to posses many healing properties and powers in increasing physical energy, recovery and stamina.

September

Sapphire / Lapis Lazuli


Sapphire, the cardinal gemstone. Sapphires come in nearly all the colours of the rainbow, but their iconic royal blue is instantly recognisable. Sapphires are made from the mineral corundum, the second hardest natural substance after the diamond and because of this are often associated with profound wisdom, long-lasting loyalty and a dependable resolve. Those born in September can also choose Lapis Lazuli as their birthstone, lesser known perhaps, but unequivocally beautiful. Speckles of gold inclusions adorn the surface, it is a gem with a deep spiritual meaning and is known as the stone of truth and of friendship.

October

Opal / Tourmaline


Opal and tourmaline both lay claim to the birthstone for October. These gemstones are known for their endless colour combinations and were once believed to have been created from rainbows. Tourmaline has traditionally been a favourite of adventures and explorers looking for untouched corners of the world. Opal can hold some of the richest colours found in nature. Each gemstone has a kaleidoscope of colours from blazing reds to wild greens. Many cultures across the globe regarded the Opal as a supernatural stone and use as a symbol of hope and prophecy.

November

Citrine


A stone with calming energy, Citrine holds the title of November birthstone. The distinctive yellow of Citrine takes its colour from traces of iron in the quartz and its natural shades can be anything from pale gold to bright amber. It is hard to not be uplifted by this stone which can be as bright and bustling as the midday sun. It is a gemstone found in all corners of the world and has never lost it’s place as a beloved jewel. Whilst we rarely use Citrine in our jewellery, you can talk to us if you’d like to use Citrine in something special.

December

Blue Topaz


Blue Topaz, the December birthstone. An undeniably enchanting stone, Blue Topaz purportedly was used as a cure for various ailments, but more than this it was used as a symbol of all encompassing love. Not just romantic love but the love between friends, family and neighbours. Evoking memories of clear blue skies and tropical blue seas, the intense blue hue of Blue Topaz is highly prized and rightly so.
