Birthstones

In Victorian times a language of love interpreted by gem stones existed. In this way a mixture of different gems would convey a specific meaning or message to the recipient. Therefore a ring set with rubies & diamonds would be interpreted as ‘love forever’.

The table below shows gem stones, their associated birth month and star signs, along with their meanings , to help you find a piece of jewellery with a sentiment you wish to convey to a loved one.
