Gifting birthstone jewellery is a timeless way to celebrate your loved ones. It hasn’t just found popularity as engagement jewellery but also makes for a great personal memento, especially if you’re celebrating milestone birthdays or anniversaries. If you’re buying birthstone jewellery for someone else you can always look up which gemstone corresponds to their birthday and zodiac, to know what their birthstones represent.
Birthstones aren’t just associated with your birth month, but they are meant to represent the period of your birth. Since they align with your zodiac sign, they can tell you a lot about your potent personality traits.
December babies are spoilt for choice because they have the option of gorgeous birthstones and can have their share of choices when it comes to choosing jewellery. While most months are aligned with a single birthstone, some months are associated with multiple stones. December, for instance, is associated with tanzanite and turquoise. Here’s everything you need to know about the birthstones for December:
Tanzanite is considered to be one of the most valuable gemstones in the market; since it's not produced in abundance, it’s considered a coveted investment by most buyers. It’s technically a mineral zoisite, which is predominantly found in varying shades of blue and violet. It’s often considered a rarer alternative to sapphire since it’s mined only in one region of Tanzania.
Tanzanites symbolise prosperity, wellness and overall good fortune. Many believe that this gemstone can stimulate almost all the Chakras in the human body and generate positive energy. This in turn develops the five human senses and also ensures productivity.
Turquoise is one of the most popular gemstones in the contemporary spectrum. It’s a mineral which is found in varying shades of blue and green. High-grade turquoise is quite high on the Mohs scale and is thus, quite hard and durable. It’s one of the most versatile birthstone gems since it can be made into an array of stylish wearable jewellery.
Turquoise is quite famously known for having calming properties. Experts unanimously agree that wearing turquoise can generate a fresh, positive spirit and can propel the wearer towards a fresh start. Turquoise is also known for its protective abilities; it is believed that wearing turquoise on a daily basis can ward away negative energies and can protect the wearer against ill fortune
