Birthstones are precious stones that represent each month of the year. People wear their birthstones as a declaration of the month in which they celebrate their birthday, to represent the births of the people they love, or simply as a symbol of good luck or whimsy. The origin of stones having representational meaning is an ancient global concept, and historians believe the first written record of their use comes from the Old Testament of the Bible. Birthstones have evolved over time to the modern list of stones we use today, which has been in place since 1912.
