Swarovski Rhinestones For Each Birthstone Colour Of The Year
January 04, 20233 min read
As we start imagining what the next twelve months might have in store for us, we at Bluestreak Crystals have compiled a handy guide to popular birthstones along with our recommended Swarovski Rhinestones colour match. Birthstones are defined as gemstones that represent the month in which a person is born, and it usually corresponds with that month’s zodiac sign. These identity enhancing details are often worn as an easily wearable item of jewellery.
Why Are There Many Variations?
You might notice that the “correct” birthstone for any given month will change near endlessly depending on who you ask, and all parties are capable of being correct. This is because across history there have been many disagreements and rewrites over what the birthstones should be; Britain's National Association of Goldsmiths, The American Gem Trade Association and Jewellers of America have all established their own lists at varying times, to name a few! This means that depending on where you are and what era in history you are looking at, the list could differ substantially.
All that said, there is usually a general colour theme that is assigned to a month and the suggested Swarovski Rhinestones all aim to match or suit it. This is how we have collectively arrived at the current, generally agreed list of birthstones and there is often more than one stone you can choose and still be technically correct.
Birthstone Colours For The Year
January : Garnet which is a deep red and matches Siam.
February : Amethyst and this purple goes with Amethyst.
March : Can be Aquamarine or Bloodstone and we recommend Aquamarine.
April : Diamond which is a perfect match to Crystal.
May : Emerald or Chrysoprase which is green, so Emerald works well.
June : Pearl or Moonstone which is milky and also iridescent like pearl, so for this we choose White Pearl.
July : Ruby or Carnelian and both are deep red, we recommend Ruby.
August : Peridot, red Spinel or Sardonyx, which contains stripes of white and black, the best match is Peridot.
September : Sapphire and Lapis Lazuli and both are deep blue, we believe the best fit is Sapphire.
October : Opal or Tourmaline which blends ruby into emerald, we suggest White Opal.
November : Topaz or Citrine and both are usually a warm yellow, we recommend Topaz and it’s sister shades,
December : Tanzanite, Turquoise and Zircon, all of these are beautiful blues and we recommend Turquoise.
There are also stones for representing the specific day of the week, so you could combine the day stone with the month stone, plus the zodiac stone to create a unique combination of colours that the wearer could feel truly defines their place in time. For ideas on how to turn these colours into a wearable item for yourself or a loved one we recommend browsing our Projects section where we offer plenty of inspiration and helpful tips.
