Family Jewelry

Birthstones

Since I was a young child, I’ve been fascinated by birthstones. The sparkling green of peridot made me long to be an August baby. As a teenager, I was so infatuated with amethyst that I wondered why I couldn’t have been born in February.

Each of the 12 months of the year has a birthstone associated with it. Some months have multiple birthstones, which allows for wonderful flexibility in design and cost.

From the first year I started selling jewelry, I created a selection of natural birthstone jewelry. Over the years I’ve expanded my collection to include a variety of family, mother’s, and grandmother’s jewelry. Each piece is designed with a birthstone representing each family member, child, or grandchild.

Necklaces

I currently offer two styles of family jewelry necklaces: a teardrop shaped pendant with flush-set stones, and a marquise shaped pendant with scrolls and tube-set gemstones. They are both 100% sterling silver, and they come with a chain in the length of your choice. They are completely customizable.

Rings

Choose either a single mother’s ring with flush-set gemstones or an entire stack of rings with each child’s birthstone. These make great gifts for mothers and grandmothers alike, and I can customize them with personalized engraving.
