Birthstones by Month – January Birthstone
The idea of a birthstone, a gemstone that corresponds to a person’s birth month, is a relatively modern creation. However, its origin dates back to biblical times.
The modern association of one gem to each month, and the practice of wearing just the stone connected to your birth month, arose between the 16th and 18th centuries. The list of so-called ancient or “traditional birthstones” originated in Poland during this time. In the United States in 1912, the National Association of Jewelers released a list of so-called “modern birthstones.”
