What A Gem: Celebrate National Jewel Day With Our Guide To Birthstones

650x425


Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but I’m more than happy to make acquaintances with rubies, emeralds, sapphires and any other precious stone that comes my way. If it sparkles and shines, I want it! So obviously I don’t need any excuse to celebrate jewels, but I’ll take it. In honor of National Jewel Day, join me on a tour of the year’s most beguiling gems: birthstones. Each month is assigned a stone (or two), but who can ever remember them all? And what do they even mean?

June is also pearl, November is actually citrine, and December is also blue topaz. And like someone else said real sapphire looks black unless the light hits it.

Those gyms are not real! A true sapphire is almost black in appearance. This is lab created.

Alexandrite is called a Ruby by day and an Emerald by night. It is named after the Russian Zahr Alexander the Great, the stone was found on his birthday!! It is a beautiful stone!!

I always knew that June's pearls and I absolutely love pearls. I'd take pearls above Alexandrite.
