Birthstone colors for jewelry – part one

I’ve been looking at glass jewel combinations lately – in birthstone colors, that is. I had a lovely girl ask me to send her the stones for a bracelet with the birthstone colors of her three kids – and that got me thinking about stone colors, and personalized jewelry in general, and of course Mother’s Day.

So I’m going to take a few pics here and there of combinations of glass jewels that look great – and are also representative of colors that could be picked because of your kids birthdays!

Like these:

emerald green aquamarine and crystal glass jewels in birthstone colors

Now these particular jewels are emerald green – the birthstone for May; white or crystal or diamond, which is the birthstone (and color) for April; and aqua or aquamarine blue, which is the birthstone color for March. They’re pretty together, in whatever combination you choose – but if you have kids born on May 12, April 18, and March 7, these stones would be even more personal to you.

This is a fun way to play with colors – and if you’re making a gift for a Mom in your life, you can be guided by her kids birthdays! Easy peasy, fun, and personal – and a great gift idea 🙂

P.S. Of course you can always search my shop for other shapes in these colors – go to that spot on the upper right where it says “Search items” – and if you can’t find just the shape you need – ask!
