Birthstones are also considered to be therapeutic gemstones. They say that wearing birthstone jewelry will bring about a positive effect on the person who is wearing them. The gemstones are classified as per the birth month for instance people who are born in January must wear Garnet embedded jewelry and people born in February must wear Amethyst. However, they vary from one culture to another such as there is a slight difference between the US Culture to that of the Hindus and to that of the Britain. Once you know which stone you are interested in, shopping becomes easy for you.
The traditional way is to associate a birthstone to each month in a year. And it is a belief that if you wear a stone associated to your birth month you would be blessed with healing powers. So, be it a gemstone for personal use or a gemstone you want to gift others, it is better to order one that suits the birth month. For instance Garnet is red in color and so does it have the power to aid blood and help in healthy functioning of heart and lungs. Invariably it also promotes love and passion in the person.
