Birth Stone for January
Birthstones are gemstones that are attached to a person’s birth month. They are typically worn as jewellery and is said to bring luck and protection to those who do.
Each birthstone has a unique meaning and significance which can date back to ancient times. While each month is traditionally associated with a gemstone, today, various gemstones can be associated with a single month.
Traditional and modern birthstones differ, too. Traditional birthstones include mixes of both transparent and opaque gems, such as pearl and opal, while the modern list of birthstones only features transparent gems.
