They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but have you considered a birthstone engagement ring instead? What could be more special than a gemstone that symbolizes the month your partner was born? And if you want to incorporate a diamond or two, you could meet with an expert jeweler at David & Sons about incorporating a birthstone and some diamonds! Following is a description of each birthstone gem to help you begin your research.

January’s Birthstone: Garnet

The garnet is a deep red stone. It’s thought to symbolize warmth and fosters a sense of passion and romance.

February’s Birthstone: Amethyst

Amethyst is a dark purple gemstone. It invokes a sense of tranquility and was once sought after as much as a diamond.

March’s Birthstone: Aquamarine

Aquamarine is a pale blue color that resembles a Caribbean seascape. It’s known for its clarity and soothing qualities.

April’s Birthstone: Diamond

Diamonds in engagement rings are often clear, but they come in various colors, including yellow, brown, purple, pink, red, and orange. Energetically a diamond may promote strength and stamina, essential qualities in a marriage.

May’s Birthstone: Emerald

Emerald’s green hue is reminiscent of tones seen in lush forests. It’s known for qualities like renewal and fidelity.

June’s Birthstone: Pearl, Alexandrite, and Moonstone

You read that right; June has three birthstones to choose from.

Pearls used in jewelry are often white spheres. But there are also black cultured pearls that come in a variety of colors. Pearls may invoke curiosity in the wearer.

Considered rare, Alexandrite looks greenish-blue in the sun but redder under artificial lights. Joy may be enhanced by the person who wears this stone.

The harmonious Moonstone looks similar to the moon on a cloudy night. It’s white with grey and blue tones glimmering just under the surface.

July’s Birthstone: Ruby

Latin for the word red, a ruby can be red or pink. Its crimson hue is bound to inspire romance.

August’s Birthstone: Peridot

This rare green stone can be either bright green or a more earthy olive green tone. It is sometimes given to celebrate the 15th year of marriage.

September’s Birthstone: Sapphire

Often a vibrant blue, sapphires also come in other colors, and some have color-changing properties. They are also given as 45th wedding anniversary gifts.

October’s Birthstone: Opal

Opals are shiny white stones with hints of pink and blue. They are known to balance a person’s moods.

November’s Birthstone: Citrine

The word citrine means lemon, and fittingly, it happens to be a transparent golden gemstone that promotes abundance.

December’s Birthstone: Turquoise

Turquoise is a blue/green stone. It is known for healing energy and is often used in Southwestern Native American jewelry. In addition, it’s thought to be a reminder of the importance of the earth and the sky.
