The April birthstone is the diamond. If there's one thing Helzberg Diamonds knows best, it's diamonds! Since 1915, Helzberg has been unmatched in the quality and brilliance of our expertly handcrafted diamond jewelry. As the April birthstone, the diamond is commonly associated with love and strength, and is said to help a wearer keep their innocence intact.
There's also an alternative April birthstone - white sapphire. Sapphire can come in any color besides red, and most other colors are associated with September. But white sapphire makes a stunning diamond alternative, and we carry an expansive variety of this gem, too.
Birthstones are gems and other minerals that are associated with a month. This is a tradition that dates back to Biblical times, and through history it was customary to wear the stone associated with the current month during that time, then switch to the next birthstone during the next month. In addition, this was before stones could be identified as precisely as they can be today, so the identities of some of the original stones are unknown. It's only in the last century that the current list has been standard, and since then, it has been more appropriate to wear your birthstone all year 'round.
