Engagement rings for your birth month

08 Jan 2019

If you have the honour of choosing your own engagement ring, take a look at these birthstone options matched to each month of the year

Your engagement ring and wedding band can say a lot about you as a person, so making the perfect choice has never been more important. As engagement rings typically feature a precious or semi-precious stone, birthstones are a popular way to add a personal touch. 

Dating back to the breastplate of Aaron, the High Priest of the Hebrews, which featured 12 gemstones representing the 12 tribes of Israel, birthstones are also thought to offer healing powers and therapeutic properties.

If you are looking for an engagement ring that is truly 'you' then your birthstone could be the best starting point. Discover your birthstone, learn the meaning behind it and find an engagement ring to suit you...
