I get a lot of requests for birthstone jewelry. It can include the stones of the client’s children, spouse, siblings or extended family. Each piece I do is unique, combining the various stones into a harmonious design.

The “official” list of birthstones can vary. I use the one that’s generally accepted by the gemstone industry. It is as follows:

January: Garnet

February: Amethyst

March: Aquamarine

April: Diamond

May: Emerald

June: Alexandrite, Pearl or Moonstone

July: Ruby

August: Peridot

September: Sapphire

October: Pink Tourmaline or Opal

November: Topaz or Citrine

December: Blue Zircon, Tanzanite or Turquoise
