The History of Birthstones
Birthstones can be traced back to the Breastplate of Aaron, which is recorded in the Bible’s Book of Exodus. The Breastplate was adorned with 12 different jewels, each representing one of Israel’s 12 tribes. It was a sacred garment having symbolic meaning for the tribes. The stones were arranged in four rows of three to emphasize each tribe’s unique characteristics.
Rather of identifying a gem with a birth month, gemstones are connected with celestial bodies in Eastern culture, and astrology is used to discover which gemstones are most closely related with and beneficial to a specific individual. In Hinduism, for example, nine jewels are connected with the Navagraha (celestial energies such as the planets, the sun, and the moon), known as Navaratna in Sanskrit (nine gems). An astrological chart is generated at birth, and particular stones are suggested to be worn on the body to ward against potential ailments depending on the exact location and time of birth of these energies in the sky.
