Birthstones are precious and semi precious stone that are assigned to a certain month of the year. Often people born during that month wear items with that stone prominently  displayed. When you think of birthstones, images of rings and earrings are often conjured up.

 

If you are lucky enough to be born in april, you stone is a diamond and you will cost your significant other a fortune in jewelry. If your are born in July your stone is Ruby and September a sapphire.

 

These items are not the only thing though that come with birthstones. Birthstone rosaries are frequently a popular gift idea. It allows for an expression of faith but doing it in a personal and unique way. When talking about birthstone rosaries, it allows for a very customized gift but yet to do it in an affordable way.

 

Rosaries are often made in the 12 birthstones. From opal, Rubies and Emeralds to less known gemstones such as aqua marine or a little more known stone such as a topaz, which belongs to November.

 

Birthstones are suppose to bring luck to their wears but what is nice is the how easily these can become personalized gifts. Just by their presence,  they convey to the person you are giving the gift to that you considered something personal about them when you give them their gift.

 

Birthstone rosaries can be made from precious or semi precious stone, synthetic stone or glass.  Real Gemstones are easily identified through their pricing. They are significantly more. Their brilliances if far superior. They usually have a facetted cut although, sometimes there are smooth semi-precious stone. You will find often rosaries made of real stone are usually Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and Diamonds. These rosaries can cost in the hundreds but often run into the thousands, especially a diamond rosary because it would still need the 50 diamonds and often the medals that comprise the framework of the rosary are 10 or 14 caret gold.  The reasons are these are stronger  and more durable where 18 and 24 carets are often soft and don’t hold up as well. You don’t often see a gold –filled on a precious or semi-precious birthstone rosary. Gold filled, sterling silver or base medal provide a very durable structure for a rosary but often don’t fit with a semi-precious stone.

 

You may find less expensive stone when you move to a synthetic stone. Is a man made version of the precious stone. They is often very little difference in the stones and only a certified gemologist will be able to tell the difference. These stones are harder and more crack resistant. In a rosary, this may be a good quality because often the owners carry those rosaries in their pockets and they will see a fair amount of wear and tear. Synthetic birthstones are often less expensive but the price difference sometimes is not enough so make sure you weigh out pro and cons on own real versus synthetic gemstones.

 

Glass is the third type way a birthstone can be placed in a rosary. The glass is colored red for ruby, blue for sapphires and so on. These are considerably less expensive often less than $50 making them more affordable gift idea if you are on a budget.

 

Overall birthstone rosaries are often a viable personal gift idea no matter if you pick a precious stone or is glass counterpart.
