For more information about the history and meaning of birthstones, visit wikipedia.  The  photo featured on this page about the meaning of birthstones comes from a vintage jewelers flyer produced by J. S. MacDonald in Baltimore, MD, (year unknown).  I find it interesting how quickly our perceptions can change over just a few generations.  But the dearest meaning is always the love that it is given with the stone.
