Today’s post on birthstone jewelry is brought to you by Talisa Jewelry. I was sent a necklace at no charge.
I have always loved my birthstone which is ruby. In fact I asked for a ruby instead of a diamond for an engagement ring but the hubby is a bit of a traditionalist and so a diamond I got. But I still got my wish in a way as my wedding band had rubies. So as you can see, birthstone jewelry can definitely mark special occasions.
I do love both my engagement ring and wedding band – they are both antiques and both are rose gold. I think it’s important to think outside the box when it comes to jewelry gifts.
Birthstone Jewelry to Mark Special Occasions
This year the hubby and I will be married 38 years. When I think about that it’s more than half of my life! Needless to say he’s a big part of my life and so when I thought about the concept of birthstone jewelry as a way to mark a special occasion an anniversary immeciately came to mind. Talisa Jewelry has a wide variety of pieces that can be customized with Swarovski crystals that match each month’s birthstone.
As I looked through the earrings, bracelets, rings and birthstone neclaces on the site one immediately appealed to me – the Spheres of Love Necklace. It’s available in different metals (sterling, gold plated, rose gold plated, 10k gold and 14k gold) and two different textures (hammered or smooth).
I had this piece made to celebrate my anniversary with a clear crystal at the center representing the hubby’s birthday, a ruby crystal on the outside representing my birthday and a purple one in the center for February and our anniversary. I have chosen to have it made in hammered sterling.
Other Occasions for Birthstone Jewelry
Of course there is the obvious choice for a birthstone jewelry gift – from children to a mother so she can wear a celebration of all their births. But why not consider marking significant dates in a special person’s life – for example: birth, graduation, wedding, etc., of a beloved sister or niece. Or dates of meaning between two friends. You can share this celebration with birthstone earrings or a bracelet as well.
There is nothing that says two friends can’t share special occasions – think as a friendship gift or yes, a bridesmaid gift. You can mark the month of the wedding and each bridesmaid’s birth month. The earrings will be similar enough from a distance yet personal.
Whatever your birthstone jewelry needs you can find a unique and beautiful piece at Talisa Jewelry. The sparkling Swarovski crystals can be used to mark a special date or you can just pick the colors you love.
