Birthstones are an assortment of beautiful gemstones, each representing a particular calendar month. The custom of wearing the gemstone assigned to the month of your birth, likely originated in Poland or Germany during the 16th century. The list of birthstones has changed over the years and varies in different cultures. In 1952, the Jewelry Industry Council sponsored the modern list, that you will find below.
