GemsNY’s Birthstone section is a treasure of knowledge about each month’s birthstone and who should wear it. They are believed to have healing powers and certain qualities that can affect their wearer in a positive or a negative way. The National Association of Jewelers, in 1912 decided to standardize the birthstones and officially adopted a list where each birthstone was given a month. For example, January’s stone is Garnet. In this Section, the blog makes you understand and learn new things about the gemstones, who should wear them, and how to take care of them. There is a huge selection of Gemstones and we are very excited for you to learn more about them.
