Gemstone Occasions
The beauty and organic nature of gemstones have made them perfect representations over the years for special occasions, including birthday months and zodiac signs. The American National Association of Jewelers first standardised a birthstone chart in 1912, which is similar but not identical to the zodiac gemstone chart. It's believed that each stone shares special significance and spiritual qualities with its corresponding birth months and zodiac months.

Gemstones are also a popular way to commemorate anniversaries, whether it be marriage anniversaries or other types. A memorable and enduring way to celebrate such an occasion would be to present a loved one with a gift of beautiful gemstone jewellery that matches the anniversary.
