I was born on October thats why my birthstone is Opal. I like my birthstone because you can get it in different colors but i like white opal the most, they shine brilliantly, they just have a different glow on it. My hunney just gave me an opal earrings as a present last christmas, and i like it so much because you can really see it because it's not small but not too big. i like its shape and design. Anyway, it is really nice if we have a jewelry with our birthstone. Do you have one? What is your birthstone? :)

January's modern birthstone is garnet and the gem is designated for the 2nd and 6th wedding anniversary. there are no known enhancement for garnet, it occurs in every color of the spectrum except blue. I hope that helps you.

My birthday is in Jan as well. You most commonly see garnets in a deep almost black red. I like them better than rubies because they seem deep to me. As you could fall into them and just keep going. They are one of my favorite stones.

I was born in March and my birthstone is aquamarine. It's an ok birthstone. It's blue and that's my favorite color. The opal is a nice birthstone. Very pretty and delicate. I think I have a ring from an ex with my birthstone but I don't know where it is right now.

My birthstone is a garnet. Garnets are okay, but I think that aquamarine, emeralds and sapphires are so much prettier! I don't like red that much, that is why the garnet doesn't appeal to me. I do have a ring with my birthstone in it. The ring was given to me by a very special aunt before she passed, so it has a lot of meaning for me. I do wear it from time to time.

Wow, not many responses to October, we must be the special ones! I am October also, and I love the Opal. I do not wear much jewelry, just mainly earrings. I usually wear gold, diamonds, or opals because that is almost all that I like. Just not a big jewelry fan, and I do not like huge stones, I prefer them small to medium, but seeable.

I was born in May. As the birthstone for May, the emerald, a symbol of rebirth, is believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. Emerald, derived from the word smaragdus, meaning green in Greek, was mined in Egypt as early as 330 B.C. Today, most of the world’s emeralds are mined in Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan, and Zambia. The availability of high-quality emerald is limited; consequently, treatments to improve clarity are performed regularly.

Its Ruby/Ruby Quartz. Kinda pretty if done right on certain crafts and trinkets. Sometimes there are makes of it that are a bit too dark, or someone just doesn't know how to use ruby on the jewelry -_-

My birthday is in July, so my birthstone is ruby red. I have a ring and a bracelet with the ruby stone. I like it because red is a symbol of love.
