Every birthstone is beautiful, but as Manchester diamond ring specialists, this month is a particular favourite of Hancocks. There are so many possibilities to mark someone’s birthday with an enchanting piece of jewellery.
Traditionally, you’re assigned a birthstone according to the month of the year that you are born into. It is not known how each stone was assigned to a particular month, however it is believed that birthstones date back to Biblical times as a priest adorned his breastplate with 12 brilliant gemstones to protect against evil forces. Since then, the 12 stones have represented the various months of the year, which have been worn as a good luck charm ever since.
The collection of precious birthstones ranges from some of our most treasured gemstones such as gorgeous sapphire, deep-green emeralds and rich-red rubies, as well as including many other more unique stones, such as pearl alexandrite and aquamarine. Regardless of whichever month you were born in, you’re sure to find a beautiful piece of birthstone jewellery to suit you.
