Birthstones are a popular and truly beautiful way to gift someone special in your life. Did you know that there is more than one way to find someone's birthstone? This also means that one person will definitely have at least 2 to 3 birthstones, so no worries if your sweetheart's birthstone is diamond and you cannot afford it now!

In the world of gemstones, or crystals and stones, many properties are being shared, and the variety of available gems is truly fascinating! So, if you are looking to find yours or someone else's birthstone, there are several ways to choose it.

Choosing a Birthstone

Along with the traditional birthstone by month, there is also a birthstone by year, and even a birthstone by the day of the week you were born! So, you can choose your birthstone according to the day of the week you were born; and you can also choose a stone to wear according to the specific energy of the day.

The energy of the day is usually defined, astrologically, by its ruling planet. To be in harmony with a specific day (especially if it is an important day for you!), you can choose to wear the gemstone that reflects its energy even if this is not your birthstone.

Overall, treat crystals and stones as good friends, and know that different crystals can help you in different ways on various occasions. 

Birthstones by Day of the Week

  • Monday (moon energy): Pearl, clear quartz, moonstone

How do you decide which birthstone is actually the right one—the birthstone of the day, the birthstone of the month or the birthstone of the year? Well, they are all right to a certain extent, and you can always combine several birthstones in your jewelry. You can also choose to wear different stones on different days or in different life situations.

You can never really go wrong with your choice of crystals and stones as they bring the healing energy of Earth and make for really best friends!
