Birthstone Necklaces




A birthstone is a special gemstone linked to the month you were born. People believe that wearing your birthstone can bring good luck and health. In addition, some people think that certain gemstones have special powers because of their connection to planets.

Some people wear it to prevent nightmares, and others think it can help against natural catastrophes. Although these theories aren't proven, wearing something as lovely as a birthstone will definitely provide a feeling of luck and protection. Sometimes, that's all you really need.



Although birthstones have been popular around the world for hundreds of years, they are not that common in Norway. As a result, the average Norwegian probably needs to learn their birthstone or the astrological powers they carry with them.

One theory is that birthstones date all the way back to the Book of Exodus in the Bible. The book is about a Hebrew priest who was told to make a special breastplate.

The breastplate had twelve different gemstones, each representing one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Christians also linked the twelve gemstones to the twelve apostles. 

Later, sometime during the first century A.D., Romano-Jewish scholar Titus Flavius Josephus assigned the gemstones to the twelve zodiac signs. Each gem was believed to hold the powers of their corresponding zodiac sign, and wearing the stone associated with the constellation which you were born under was a token of good fortune.



  • Capricorn: Capricorns' birthstone is Garnet, also known as the "Gem of Faith." This stone is believed to possess curative powers, healing the wearer and countering negative forces and dark energies.
  • Aquarius: People born under the Aquarius sign are blessed to have the vivid purple Amethyst as their birthstone color. This stone keeps Aquarians level-headed when you wear them, enabling good business decisions. Amethyst literally means "avoiding drunkenness." It is also associated with peace, stability, and strength. 
  • Pisces: Aquamarine, associated with positivity, good health, and happiness, is the birthstone color of Pisceans. It is said to have a soothing effect on the wearer, allowing the person to remain calm and peaceful despite provocation. This makes the Aquamarine a fantastic anniversary gift!

  •  Aries: Swarovski's Clear Crystal echoes the clarity and brilliance of  the Aries birthstone, Diamond. Aries has the desire to lead the way for others and can overcome any challenge they face. Their birthstone is believed to give clarity to the wearer, making it easier to move forward and reach their goals. 

  • Taurus: Taureans have the green beauty Emerald as their birthstone color. The birthstone is said to increase the intelligence and strength of the heart, and its lush green color symbolizes loyalty, friendship, and renewal of life. Wear this emerald-colored Swarovski crystal to enhance a Taurus' natural sensitivity.  

  • Gemini: Geminis are lucky enough to have three birthstones; Pearl, Alexandrite, and Moonstone. Swarovski has chosen the beautiful shade of Light Amethyst to represent Gemini's birthstone, reflecting their childlike innocence, gentleness, purity, and sense of curiosity.

  • Cancer: Cancerians have the magical Ruby, known as the "King of Gems," as their birthstone. It's said to symbolize strength, vitality, confidence, and courage.

  • Leo: Those born under the star sign Leo have the olive-green Peridot as their birthstone color. Ancient Egyptian priests believed the Peridot contained the forces of nature, and it is associated with love, loyalty, commitment, and harmony. The light green shade is also said to reduce stress and anger, making it a perfect gift for Leo in search of peace and progress in life. 

  • Virgo: Virgoans have Sapphire, the symbol of truth, as their birthstone color. Virgoans are caring, confident, creative, and supportive. Wearing the stunning Swarovski Crystal Birthstone in Sapphire protects them from envy and harm, boosts intuition, and promotes good health. 

  • Topaz: Swarovski chose the orange-toned Topaz color to  represent Scorpio's two birthstones; Topaz and Citrine. Topaz is known as the "stone of the mind" for its alleged healing abilities for mental illness. Scorpios will enjoy Crystal Birthstones in color Topaz for its perceived powers to balance emotions and thoughts for a harmonious lifestyle.


  • Sagittarius: Sagittarians are blessed with three birthstones; Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, and Blue Zircon. Swarovski has chosen their smokey-blue Montana shade to represent Sagittarius' Crystal Birthstone. This shade signifies reassurance and security, which helps guide the wearer in their journey through life. 



Birthstones are trendy gifts for people who love shiny and colorful gems and can be meaningful. Nowadays, there are one to three unique gems for each month of the year, and each has its own story and special meaning.
