December Birthstone Jewelry
This December birthstone comes in many colors, including orange Imperial topaz, but blue is the most popular. Blue topaz is the only color that is appropriate for a December birthstone gift and the cool blue color is even reminiscent of the birthday season. Blue topaz has been said to encourage fidelity and health, and it was favored by royalty in the middle ages. Birthstones are associated with the month of a person’s birth. It’s a tradition that dates back to ancient times. Back then, it was customary for everyone to wear a birthstone during the appropriate month. So in December, everyone would wear blue topaz or whatever stone was associated with the month. We kind of like that tradition, but today, birthstones are more popular as gifts for people born within that month.
