We’ll also share our favorite diamond birthstone jewelry pieces perfectly suited for any woman's taste.
How Did Birthstones Become a Tradition?
Historians throughout history believe birthstones first held biblical roots. They have traced the stones back to suits of armor worn in the Bible for protection. Each stone represented a month of the year and harnessed special protective powers. Worn on the breastplate of Aaron as he went off to war, the 12 magnificent stones were believed to provide protection when worn in unison.
Many believers continued to collect the 12 gemstones during the 8th century. However, a slow shift in the belief in their power began to form. Instead of wearing the 12 stones in unison, it was now believed that wearing each stone individually provided the most significant power. As the belief spread, a new ritual was born.
It wasn't until the 16th century that gemstones became the official birthstone tradition we follow today. Rather than keep a collection of all 12 stones, wearers only collected the stone which corresponded to their birth month. Many still believed in their powers; however, they also began to take on a more sentimental meaning to the wearer.
Which Birthstone List Should I Select From?
Today, we recognize three lists of birthstones: the ancient, traditional, and modern ones. While The National Association of Jewelers began developing the modern-day list of birthstones in 1912, there is no right or wrong list to select your stone from.
You will notice gemstones found on the ancient list are the most recognized. These stones have been used for thousands of years. Gemstones found on the traditional birthstone list have been recognized for the past 500 years. Over the last 100 years, we have seen a rise in popularity with the modern list of birthstones. While some stones have remained on two or three lists, the modern list is the most widely used today.
What Do Birthstones Symbolize Today?
Many still believe birthstones symbolize health, wellness, and good fortune. While the religious meaning behind the stones seems lost, the element of goodwill and protection remain symbolic for many collectors. In addition, each birthstone is believed to offer its unique benefits from physical and emotional healing powers.
What is April’s Birthstone?
If you are shopping for an April birthstone, you are fortunate to have the diamond birthstone as your stone. While the diamond birthstone species are found in various breathtaking colors, the traditional April birthstone uses the white diamond to represent the month.
We do want to note that we want to provide high-quality birthstone jewelry that is affordably to all our clients. In doing so, you may find that some of our favorite April birthstone jewelry features exquisite white sapphires, rather than diamonds.
What is the Meaning Behind the Diamond April Birthstone?
The April birthstone symbolizes a strong, eternal love. In fact, the word diamond stems from the Greek word Adamas, which means invincible. Diamonds have always been seen as rare, unique stones and were once believed to be the tears of God.
The diamond was once thought to hold the power to cure crippling brain illnesses. During the Middle Ages, one would heat the stone and keep it in their bed to draw impurities and toxins out of their body.
The diamond birthstone also represents:
- strong relationships
- inner strength
