Birthdays are one of the most common - yet treasured - celebrations that we observe with family, friends, and colleagues. Traditionally, each month of the year has a birthstone is associated with it, and these birthstones are often the inspiration for beautiful birthday bouquets. In January, the birthstone is the garnet, a stone which comes in a range of colors but for this month is a deep red. If you are looking for a unique way to honor your loved ones on their special day, trust Bagoy's Florist and Home.
Birthstones are believed to have originated with the Biblical tribes of Israel. The high priest Aaron wore a breastplate which was comprised of twelve gemstones (which stood for the twelve tribes). Although the list of birthstones has changed many times, the current list has been active since 1912. There are many legends and myths about the therapeutic properties of birthstones, which state that wearing a gemstone during the appropriate month gives you the most insight and power. Many ancients owned one of each stone so as to wear the correct gem each month. Read More about Birthstones as Floral Inspiration »
