What Your Birthstone Really Means

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that a birthday is just a single day. Au contraire — your special time deserves a whole month of celebration! We’re talking birthday advent candles for an exciting countdown, a destination party weekend for a milestone birthday, and zodiac-inspired gifts for a cosmic celebration. Another way to pay tribute to your birth month? Rock your birthstone or, if you’re feeling nest-y, decorate with it! Birthstones are more than just pretty gems though; each has a distinct meaning and history.
