Types of Rings

Birthstone Rings

These types of rings represent each month of the year. Similar to zodiac signs, each birthstone has a different meaning.

  • Couples celebrating anniversaries - Birthday gemstones make great anniversary gifts, especially if a diamond ring is not in the budget. Rings with her birthstone are a thoughtful and beautiful gift she can add to her jewelry collection.
  • Birthday presents - Rings with their birthday month's gemstone are a personal gift and every time they wear it they'll be reminded of your gift.
  • Push gifts - In some cultures, after the birth of a child, it's appropriate to give the mother a ring with the coordinating birthstone.
