Birthstones have been used for centuries by different cultures and for different reasons. Dating back to its origins in Israel, it is believed that Aaron wore all twelve gemstones on his breastplate to represent the different tribes. Legends from the past stated that the birthstones gave different powers of healing if worn during the matching month. Birthstones have also been linked to astrology and each sign and planet is matched with a different stone.
