There are many systems of thought when it comes to finding what healing crystals and stones have the most potent energetic qualities for you based on your birthday.

Nowadays, most people assume that you find your birthstone by month; but there's always more than one birthstone associated for every month of the year—each with their own distinct colors, textures, and energetic meanings.

That means there are a few different ways to find the right birthstone that resonates with you... or the lucky loved one who's getting the perfect birthstone gift from you. 😘

Finally: the ultimate birthstone chart to finding your perfect personalized birthstone jewelry.


Why are there numerous birthstones for each month?

Normally, most people associate each month with only one type of birthstone. But throughout history, different cultures have associated a variety of crystals and stones with each month.

This is because ancient and modern cultures have used a variety of methods to determine which gemstones have the most powerful relationship with an individual's birthday to develop a birthstone list. For example, in Ayurveda and Hindu astrological traditions, it is believed that the mystical energy of a person's birthday is more closely affected by the position of celestial bodies in the sky at the time of birth⁠—like the sun, the moon, and the planets. So instead of month birthstones, there are 9 traditional celestial birthstones in the Hindu birthstones chart known as the Navaratna.

Some ancient cultures attributed the mystical healing powers of birthstones to different annual calendar systems that don't line up with our typical 12 month calendar—which has been used as the standard worldwide Gregorian calendar system since the 20th century. For example, you might find a different list of birthstones based on the zodiac signs.

That also means there are more affordable options for personalized birthstone jewelry (yay!)

The fact is, some birthstones are more rare (and more expensive) than others, so having different gemstone options for each month makes it easier to find affordable birthstone gifts.

For example, diamonds birthstones have been historically linked to April birthdays... but not many people can afford to go out buy a diamond ring as a birthstone gift for mom! So adding official semi-precious stone options for April birthstones like opal and clear quartz gives us more affordable options to buy birthstone gifts for her.
