Birthstone Necklaces

We wear our birthstones as a way of celebrating the month we were born. Birthstones offer certain qualities such as healing and protection in which we hold close to our hearts when threaded onto necklaces. By placing these crystals on your body, a connection to the planet's healing energy is formed, leaving you more relaxed and composed. Each birthstone is a perfectly balanced form from the Earth's crust, all offering unique properties and powers to heal different aspects of your life.
