There are more than 200 types of gemstones in the world, some classified as “precious” and others as “semi-precious”. As we can see, they represent a real treasury of sparkle, color and significance, so it is absolutely no surprise that it is hard to find the one that not only speaks your style, but also your heart. This is, actually, your signature gemstone and if you have not found it yet, we have some interesting traces for you to follow that will take you to the desired destination.
The most common way to find one’s signature gemstone is to do it based on the birth month. We have already talked about birthstones in our previous blog-article adventures, but here is a quick reminder of the list of birthstones by month:
January ⇢ Garnet
February ⇢ Amethyst
March ⇢ Aquamarine
April ⇢ Diamond
May ⇢ Emerald
June ⇢ Pearl, Alexandrite
July ⇢ Ruby
August ⇢ Peridot, Sardonyx, Spinel
September ⇢ Sapphire
October ⇢ Tourmaline, Opal
November ⇢ Topaz, Citrine
December ⇢ Tanzanite, Zircon, Turquoise
The meaning of birthstones is based on a vibrational power. We have seen in some gemology reports that there are birthstones which are more influential at certain times of the year and for some, this could also be a starting point of the quest for the signature gemstone.
In case your birthstone is not much to your liking, there is another way to find the perfect gem for you. It is simple – you have to rely on your zodiac sign. In this case, the answer will be given by your zodiac-based gemstone, also known as Astral stone. Back in history, a great number of astrologists believed that zodiac signs do have the power in determining one’s success, fortune and happiness. They studied the sky and the stars to discover what is the magical power of each gemstone. We also got triggered by this phenomenon, so we did a profound research to see what is the mystical alliance between zodiac signs and gemstones. Stay focused, because in the lines that follow you are going to find out what is your signature gemstone from an astrological perspective.
♈ ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
The meaning behind the ram (the symbol of Aries) is all about possession, power and high energy. An Aries won’t miss an opportunity to show off his competitive character and the determination to beat any challenge. Being driven by glory and success, Aries is destined to be in a leading position, so it is more than evident why the diamond is actually the Astral stone for this zodiac sign. As you already know, the diamond is the rarest and the most expensive precious stone in the world, and it also holds the very first place on the Moh’s scale of hardness. Both the sign and the stone evoke evident intense emotions, so if by any chance you were born under the sign of Aries, do you feel like the sublime diamond is the stone that reflects your soul?
♉ TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
If there is one thing that a Taurus loves the most, that is pleasure. Taurus are always seeking for delight and satisfaction, whether that would be a food, a drink, a hobby or a luxury. They say that it is very hard to make a Taurus mad, but once done, you better watch yourself. However, it is an undeniable fact that people born under this sign are incredibly devoted parents, companions and lovers. So, why the emerald? Ever since the discovery of this precious stone, it has become a highly attractive gemstone-option for engagement rings and the engagement ring conveys the meaning of love, commitment and devotion, right? The emerald-jewelry trend was initiated by the royalty, hence the popularity of this gem as a luxurious alternative for jewelry of promise. It really sounds like the signature gemstone of Taurus, don’t you agree?
♊ GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
The single word that completely describes Gemini is “adventure”. They love traveling, exploring new places and cultures, meeting new people and experiencing new ideas. The sign itself is represented by a pair of twins, meaning that Gemini never want to be alone. Their favorite motto is “Think Outside The Box”, which also describes the authentic, unusual beauty of pearls. A Gemini is always inspired by bright, tender colors and the pearl seems to be the right color presentation of the Gemini’s taste. According to a Persian legend, the pearl came to Earth with a rainbow that met our planet after a storm. The rainbow hues in which pearls appear may be interpreted as a mirror of the enthusiastic spirit of Gemini who are always ready for fun and excitement.
♋ CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
People born under the sign of Cancer are often described as homesick people. They are very attached to their family and friends, and for them, it means the world to have the most important at one place. The crab is the symbol for this zodiac sign and as you have already noticed, it is always carrying its shell on its back as part of its essence. Another interesting, yet very important characteristic of Cancer is that these people need to be needed. Now, let’s get our attention to the hypnotic ruby. Its fiery, passion-ignited appearance make people to long for this precious gemstone that creates the most exquisite pieces of jewelry. That is why ruby is so popular, but at the same time, so distinctive and unusual. Red is the color of both the sign and the gemstone. Is red your favorite color too? Because this might be your signature gemstone that you are looking for.
♌ LEO (July 23 – August 22)
What makes a Leo person “a Leo” is pride, composure and supremacy. Just like Aries, Leo want to be in charge and hold the leadership in their own hands. If you ignore or do not recognize a contribution by a Leo, his feelings will get hurt and you will have a hard time in getting back its interest and appreciation for you. In most cases, Leo are bright individuals with a warm heart who use this warmth to attract people. Peridot on the other hand, is a truly remarkable gemstone whose graceful yellow-green color is reminiscent of late summer days. It is like the herald of fall, which is exactly the same period of the year when Leo people are born. Peridot promotes well-being and sharp mind, thus giving the owner a chance for mental and spiritual growth. Again, this peridot property can be associated with the Leo personality that exudes a great sense of self-worth and the importance of building long-lasting relationships.
♍ VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
The three C’s that stand for the individuality of Virgo are calm, clarity and compassion. But, a Virgo is also an exceptionally detail-oriented person who is always endeavoring to produce something beautiful and useful out of his activities. Talking about the blend of attractiveness and versatility, is there any other gemstone in jewelry that has these qualities in one place than the mesmerizing sapphire? The answer is no. Sapphire is, beyond any shadow of doubt, the most used colored gem in our craftsmanship, because its beauty appears in a spectrum of colors that can fit different jewelry styles. Sapphire is said to bring protection, wisdom and good fortune. The velvety cornflower blue is still the most in-demand shade of gemstone enthusiasts, so if you are one of them, you can easily make sapphire your signature gemstone, that is for sure.
