Birthstones are often chosen as the first earring or jewelry that a person will have. The symbolic gesture is to keep a person connected to his or her source. The modern birth stone selections have been modified several times over the last 100 years. The most common way to buy birthstone jewelry is to select the color of the appropriate stone. For instance the May birthstone color would be a deep green since May’s birthstone is emerald. Simulated stones are a great alternative to expensive gemstones.
The custom of wearing birthstones reaches back for many centuries. The oldest European tradition was to keep sets of birthstone jewelry for all twelve months and then wear sets for the corresponding month throughout the year. The practice of wearing only the single birth stone for an individual is a relatively new custom.
