From the bachelorette to the bridal shower, your maids have been right by your side every step of the way. And with your big day approaching, you want to do something special to show them how much they mean to you. Personalized bridesmaid gifts always feel a little extra special. And while — for many — monograms and initials may change, birthstones are forever.
Just in case you need a quick refresher, think of this as crash course in birthstones 101. For January birthdays, gift garnet. Amethyst is a favorite among those born in February. Aquamarine is beloved by March babies. Diamonds really are an April girl's best friend. May favors gorgeous, green emeralds. Pearls are particularly precious to those born in June. Royal rubies represent July. Peridot is perfect for those with August birthdays. Sapphires are symbolic of September. October is all about opal. November birthdays celebrate with citrine. And last but certainly not least, December's stone is turquoise.
