The guide below helps you find especially suitable birth stone jewelry for your sweetie’s Christmas present. Some people believe that the rock properties can help with emotional responses in the recipient. Most signs have many precious or semi-precious stones connected to them, and I’ve listed two for each sign. Some signs share a stone. In this case, I’ve listed a different property of the stone under the second or third sign.
