Birthstones


The origin of birthstones is believed to date back to the breastplate of Aaron which contained twelve gemstones representing the twelve tribes of Israel. According to the legend of gemstone healing powers, wearing a gemstone during its assigned month heightened its healing powers. For the full effect, it was recommended that you own all twelve gemstones and alternate them monthly.
