Birthstones Are Big Again—Here's How to Wear Yours

We love jewelry—period. But if we’re being honest, a little personalization always makes our favorite pieces feel that much more special. While personalized jewelry may not be an unfamiliar concept (nameplate necklaces have become a foolproof option, thanks to Carrie Bradshaw), we’re seeing the return of a specific style of the trend: birthstone jewelry.

Sure, you might be familiar with classic gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, and rubies, but when you break down the birthstones by month, you’ll find that the precious stones go far beyond these, and they’re downright gorgeous, too. If you’re in the mood to wear a piece of jewelry that feels specific to you without being as overt as wearing your name for the world to see, we’ve pulled together the coolest pieces to wear with any and all of your outfits right now.
