Jewellery inspired by Autumn

So it seems that after a wonderfully long warm summer Autumn is now poking its head around the corner and scattering the ground with the last of the coloured leaves.

And with the season comes fun reasons to celebrate: birthdays, anniversaries and Mother’s Day. Thinking about giving jewellery as a gift? Make a lasting impression on a loved one with the personal touch of birthstone jewellery gifts.

The autumn birthstones cover the months of March, April and May. The birthstones for the Autumn months are as follows:

March: Aquamarine

April: Diamond

May: Emerald

Each gem stone has a symbolism that influenced its selection for the month it represents. The idea is that a birthstone’s meaning also represents aspects of a person born in the corresponding month, much like zodiac sign characteristics.

People with Autumn birthdays will be interested in learning about autumn birthstones. Birthstone symbolism has intrigued people for generations. The birthstones for the autumn months have fascinating histories and lore that will appeal to those searching for a meaningful birthday gift.
