December birthdays are lucky enough to have three gorgeous birthstones to choose from. Tanzanite, blue topaz, and turquoise gemstones each offer a unique flavor suitable to many different personality types, styles, and budgets. Learn more about each below to choose the perfect stone for your friend, loved one, or significant other. 



Tanzanite Ring

Tanzanite is the most recent addition to the December birthstone family and is considered the most modern. First discovered in 1967, tanzanite is found only in Tanzania near the awe-inspiring Mount Kilimanjaro. 

Tanzanite is  rare and exotic and its bluish purple hue looks fantastic in both silver and gold settings. Tanzanite is associated with introspection and positivity as well as wisdom, truth, and spirituality. 


Blue Topaz

Blue Topaz Pendant

Blue topaz is the most traditional December birthstone and ranges in color from light hues to bold blues. Because of its exceptional hardness, topaz makes a fantastic choice for a piece that will be worn often or even every day. 

The blue color often reminds wearers of a calming body of water or a blue sky and promotes harmony and relaxation. This gemstone is associated with beauty, long life, and intelligence. 



Turquoise Ring

Turquoise is one of the oldest gemstones and was buried in the tombs of the ancient Egyptians dating back to 4,000 BCE. This makes turquoise some of the oldest jewelry ever discovered. 

Over the years turquoise has adorned everything from jewelry to ceremonial masks to weaponry. In modern times turquoise is associated with happiness, honesty, and spirituality.
