What is your birthstone?

These beautiful gems are said to reflect the qualities said to be held by those born within their corresponding month in the calendar. In Western custom, the origins of the 12 birthstones are a little hazy, but could link back to the Book of Exodus in the Christian Bible, or indeed be representative of the 12 Apostles. However, the link is a little tenuous - I like to think that it is part of human nature to possess items that represent ourselves, and birthstones are a beautiful way to do so.

The stones I use in this collection are ethically sourced, carefully chosen and meticulously set, to create elegant, easily wearable pieces.
