I love working with stones and crystals and realized I should make more of a conscious effort to source and design pieces with Birthstones in mind. These make such great and thoughtful gifts! The internet shows so many stone options for Birthstones and Zodiacs, it's hard to weed through what is accurate. I'm just doing the best I can with what makes sense for us and the stones I like to work with and what I'm drawn to as well as what's beautiful, accessible and affordable. Many designs have multiple Birthstone options. If there's something of mine that you'd like to customize with your Birthstone, just let us know!
January - Garnet
We started this series in February so we'll probably wait till next January to whip these up. We do have a few garnet options already HERE
February - Amethyst
Aquarius Season is Jan 20 - Feb 18, Pisces season is Feb 19th-Mar 20th
Amethyst is a variety of quartz, with a vitreous or glassy luster. It typically comes in shades of violet and purple. The spiritual meaning of Amethyst is groundedness, tranquility, and calm. The literal meaning of Amethyst is “not intoxicated” – its name translates from the Greek word améthystos. To this ancient, wise culture, the Amethyst crystal was of the utmost importance, and the myth associated with it still lives on inside it to this day. See the Amethyst Collection HERE.
Aquamarine - March
Pisces season is Feb 19th-Mar 20th, Aries Season is March 21st -April 19th
Energy-wise, Aquamarine is ruled by the Moon and is infused with yin or feminine energy. In its healing and nourishing effects, Aquamarine can be compared to moonstone. Because of its flowing, peaceful energy, Aquamarine has a strong ability to help move, protect and purify your own energy and aid emotional healing as well as deepen meditative states. Its energy can feel like splashes of fresh ocean water—playful and a bit mischievous, too! See the Aquamarine Collection HERE.
Herkimer Diamond - April
Aries Season is March 21st -April 19th, Taurus Season is April 20th - May 20th
The April Birthstone is Diamond and since I don't really work with Diamonds we've made a collection with Herkimer Diamonds. As a Taurus, I'm obsessed with these! Herkimer Diamonds are water-clear quartz that come from Herkimer, NY. We've rounded up our usual suspects of Hestia Earrings, Artemis Earrings and necklaces, Taliswoman Earrings and Pendants and hoops and imbued them with these beautiful crystals. See the collection HERE.
