We all have heard of the word birthstone very often. Birthstone means the gemstone attached to each month in the Georgian calendar that people associate with their birth month.


Most people believe that wearing a birthstone brings good luck and happiness to their life. Also, they give these birthstones embedded jewellery as a gift to their loved ones.


Whether you believe in this concept of birthstones relies entirely on your faith. However, it never hurts to have a beautiful gemstone in your luxurious collection with a symbolic meaning. Does it?


So, let us take a look at how this concept of birthstones got life.

A brief history of birthstones

There are many speculations around when and how the concept of birthstone emerged. Some date back to biblical times when the gemstones were associated with the 12 Zodiac sun signs.


Astrologers corresponded to the gemstones whose unique represent/symbolism matches the particular sun sign traits believing that wearing such stone can protect the wearer from all harm.


By analyzing the Zodiac signs, astrologers conclude that the diamond gemstone perfectly resembles the sun sign Aries characteristics.


However, in 1912, the American National Association of Jewellers designed a list dedicating different gemstones for all twelve months.


Well, once thought to be a controversial belief is now widely accepted as the official birthstone list. In this birthstone list, a diamond is referred to as the birthstone of April.


According to the Georgian calendar, those born from March 21 to April 20 fall under the Aries sun sign. In both ways, a diamond became the April Birthstone.


You can see the story of a diamond born as the April birthstone is as rich and multifaceted as a diamond itself. However, there is more to this story, its attached meaning & symbolism.


So, let us see it:
