A Brief Overlook of Birthstone Origins
As you can imagine, birthstones have a long history. Their origins are linked to the Breastplate of Aaron, which is described in the Bible to feature 12 gemstones to represent the 12 Israeli tribes.
Later in history, scholars in the 1st and 5th century A.D. realized that there was a connection between the 12 gemstones on the breastplate and the zodiac signs. However, it wouldn’t be until the 18th century that each gemstone would be assigned to a specific birth month.
It’s believed that this tradition started in Poland, where the traditional list originated. Though gemstones no longer have much religious meaning, they do have meaning and they have become symbols of many different things.
