Nothing shows beauty, passion or appreciation of a loved one than jewelry designed with gemstones. Whether natural or dyed, gemstones bring character, allure and delight to any jewelry design.
The American Gem Society provides a chart of the history of each month’s birthstone. Visit their web site here and click on the month you were born or any stone month you are curious about to learn about it’s source, name and characteristics.
As a jewelry designer, add a twist to your designs by either building a collection around a birthstone or just design with various gems in your favorite color. To inspire you, you can reference this gem palette from the American Gem Trade Association. If you usually have problems color coordinating, use a color wheel to help you bring harmony to your designs.
