This mother’s ring was meant to symbolize the 4 children of the mother at both young and older ages.  Hence, the smaller larger stone pairs.  Mother’s rings are probably the most popular type of Custom Birthstone Jewelry that we make.

What Are Birthstones?

Birthstones are special gemstones that have been associated with the twelve months of the year since ancient times. Each month has a designated birthstone that is

believed to bring luck and protection to the person born in that month. Birthstone jewelry is a wonderful way to show someone how much you care about them. Whether

you’re looking for a gift for yourself or someone special, creating custom birthstone jewelry is a great way to make a unique and special statement. Birthstones come in a

variety of colors and shapes, so there is something for everyone!  And there are various “charts” of birthstones that have changed with prevailing styles and trends.  So, if

one chart has your birthstone as Tanzanite for December, you can also find charts that claim Sapphire is the december birthstone.

Custom Birthstone Jewelry

This is a mixed cut birthstone engagement ring.  One of the couple was born in September and the other was born in March.  They wanted to use those 2 stones for their custom engagement ring, so we did.  They also did not want the standard round brilliant cut or even a princess.  So they opted for the less common trillion and emerald cuts.

How To Choose The Right Birthstone

When creating custom jewelry with birthstones, it is important to understand the tradition and meaning behind each gemstone. Birthstones are a meaningful way to

commemorate a special occasion or mark a milestone in someone’s life. The gemstone associated with your birth month is said to bring luck, protection, and good health.

To choose the right birthstone for custom jewelry, you must first understand the list of stones associated with each month. For example, January has two birthstones –

garnet and rose quartz – while February has just one – amethyst. Some months have more than one gemstone associated with them, so be sure to research which stone fits

best for you or the person you are gifting the piece to.

Once you have determined the birthstone for each month, consider the quality and color of the stones you will use for your custom jewelry. For example, if you plan to

make a pendant using ruby as the birthstone, opt for a deep red hue that looks brighter and more intense under the light. Similarly, aquamarine should be of high clarity

and have a bright blue-green shade. You can also find various sizes and shapes of birthstones to create unique custom jewelry pieces.

How to care for birthstone jewelry

When it comes to caring for birthstone jewelry, some gemstones require special attention due to their delicate nature. In general, it is important to keep your custom

birthstone jewelry away from harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and direct sunlight. When cleaning your jewelry, opt for a gentle soap or jewelry cleaner specifically

designed for the type of gemstone used. Always be sure to dry your birthstone jewelry thoroughly after cleaning as leaving it damp can cause discoloration or damage.

It is also important to store your birthstone jewelry in a safe place, away from other jewelry items, so as to prevent any scratching or abrasion. Keeping your custom

birthstones jewelry in its original box or a soft fabric pouch will help protect it from wear and tear. With proper care and maintenance, you can ensure that your custom

pendants and other birthstones jewelry will last for years to come.

History of birthstones

The origin of birthstones can be traced back to biblical times.  According to the Book of Exodus, Aaron created a breastplate with 12 stones that were believed to be

connected to the 12 zodiac signs.   HERE is a good bit of information on the history of birthstones.  The concept of wearing precious stones was

a sign of protection, wealth and good luck. The modern practice of wearing one stone for each month of birth did not begin until the 16th century and originated in either

Germany or Poland. This was the start of the custom jewelry birthstone trend we are familiar with today. Birthstones were used as symbols to represent different

characteristics and values, such as courage, purity, and strength. The idea was that the stone would bring its wearer good luck, health, and prosperity. However, over time,

birthstones have become more associated with sentimental value, with many people wearing them to honor or commemorate a special person or moment in their life.
