Are there certain stones that you have always felt drawn to? Birthstones are powerful reminders of your identity - they just might be what's calling out to you! Birthstones are ancient, beautiful, and powerful—they have been used in jewelry and other decorative objects for centuries.
Birthstones are associated with your birth month or zodiac sign, as well as specific properties and energies. Did you know that each birthstone is said to bring its wearer good luck? They can also help protect an individual from negative energy and carry the energy of the planet associated with it. Today, we'll explore what these special stones mean, why they're so powerful, and how to discover your own Power Stones through birthstones.
What Are Birthstones?
Birthstones are precious or semi-precious stones assigned to each month of the year. Birthstones are believed to bring luck and healing powers to the wearer, as well as being a beautiful accessory to share with other people. Many people are familiar with the main birthstones, like diamonds and rubies, but there’s actually a wide array of other stones that you can discover!
Birthstones have a long history of association with both astrology and folklore. Each stone is said to have special properties that can help you in your life. For example, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, having a birthstone nearby may fill you with calmness and peace. It's also said that birthstones can boost your inner strength and self-confidence - strengthening your personal power to take on whatever comes your way!
While each stone has its own unique meaning, it’s important to remember that when it comes to finding your perfect birthstone there are no rules – pick something that resonates with you, whether it be because of its beauty or its power. With some research and exploration, discovering your own power stones is an empowering journey – sure to bring positivity into your life.
What Is the History and Mythology Behind Birthstones?
The beauty of birthstones is that their origin dates back thousands of years. The earliest recorded reference to birthstones can be found in the Bible, where stones representing the twelve tribes of Israel were mentioned. Each stone had an association with a particular tribe, thus giving them a unique identity.
Since then, birthstones have also become associated with various astrological powers and even specific gods and goddesses. For example, aquamarine is associated with Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, while amethyst was believed to protect against intoxication and provide strength in battle. In addition to these mythical origins, some gems are also said to bring luck or good fortune to their wearer.
No matter what you believe about the power of birthstones, they are certainly an ancient tradition that continues to capture our imagination today.

Style Your Birthstone: Styling Tips for Each Stone Type
Once you've found your own power stones and birthstones, it's time to style them. Each stone type has unique characteristics that can be showcased in different ways to help make your everyday looks stand out and feel extra special.
Gemstones are the most vibrant types of stones and are typically used in statement jewelry pieces. To best show off their natural luster, choose a simple piece of jewelry (like a ring or necklace), and let the color of the stone take center stage. For instance, sapphires look great in an understated pendant necklace, while rubies can stand out when showcased in a pair of drop earrings.
#### Semi-Precious Stones
Semi-precious stones come in a variety of colors and textures, which makes them perfect for creating a striking contrast when set against precious metals such as gold or silver. For example, turquoise is beautiful when paired with its namesake metal (turquoise) for an eye-catching look that adds just the right hint of tinted luxury to any ensemble - whether casual or formal. Or perhaps you'd rather go for something classic - an amethyst set against yellow gold? The possibilities are endless!
Pearls tend to give any outfit an instant dose of sophistication. To fully showcase their delicate beauty, consider pairing them with bolder pieces such as statement pendants or big hoop earrings so that they appear natural but still stand out from the crowd.
