Mother's Day Birthstone Gift Guide

One of our favorite Mother's Day gift ideas is jewelry with the child's birthstone. A beautiful heirloom piece to be handed down for generations to come.

What is my birthstone? There are actually multiple birthstones to choose from for each birth month. Why are there multiple birthstones? The tradition of birthstones originated in Poland between the 16th and 18th centuries. Some of the these birthstones continue to today however in 1912 the National Association of Jewelers released a modern birthstone list.
