Have you ever purchased birthstone jewelry for your children?  I have the opportunity to purchase baby and children's bracelets and children's necklaces with birthstones, as well as children's earrings with a little dangly birthstone.  

I've written here before about birthstones.  The American Gem Society says:  "Traditionally, a birthstone is associated with each month of the year. For example, the birthstone for January is a garnet, while lucky babies born in April get a diamond as their birthstone.  There are numerous legends and myths about birthstone healing powers and their therapeutic influence. According to these legends, wearing a gemstone during its assigned month heightened its healing powers. For the full effect, individuals needed to own all twelve and alternate them monthly."  

Here are the birthstones for each month of the year:

January - Garnet

February - Amethyst

March - Aquamarine

April - diamond

May - Emerald

June - Pearl, Alexandrite

July - Ruby

August - Peridot

September - Sapphire

October - Tourmaline, Opal

November - Topaz, Citrine

December - Tanzanite, Zircon, Turquoise
