The Irish Birthstone tradition and history date back hundreds of years. Irish Birthstones and birthstone jewelry have fascinated people for centuries and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they beautiful and will grab anyone’s attention, but they also have a history and a story that should be told.
Irish Birthstone Jewelry – What are they?
Irish Birthstone jewelry is made from gemstones that are associated with the particular months of the year, each gemstone and therefore each month has a different meaning and history, and all are considered lucky to the people born in those months. So not only does every month of the calendar year have a corresponding precious stone forever attached to it, but it also has a beautiful and unique story associated with it.
Irish Birthstone Jewelry – how it all began
Gemstones were originally associated with each sign of the Zodiac based on a color system. Over time, the gems became associated with each calendar month. Birthstones are in fact precious or semi-precious gemstones. It is believed that the wearing of birthstone jewelry began in 18th century Poland and the unique custom has now spread throughout the world with different cultures such as the Irish culture developing our own birthstone calendars.
According to some traditions, wearing a birthstone during the month with which it’s associated will keep the wearer healthy and happy. Then some believe that in order to take full advantage of the full effects of the birthstone phenomenon, it’s best to own all twelve stones, switching them out as the months change over. Some would argue that’s a reason to purchase all 12 while others may well feel that is all a bit too much!
