|Birthstones by Month|
|September||Sapphire||Lapis Lazuli||Deep Blue|
With the passing of time and fashions, different gemstones have been ascribed to different months. It is thought that, originally, colour was the major attribute which determined a person's birthstone. During the eighteenth century, the connection between birthstones and particular months received a wave of popularity, and many different lists came into being. In 1937, the (British) National Association of Goldsmiths (N.A.G.), organised a uniform "official" list, which seems to have become, more or less, internationally recognised. The cynical may wish to believe that this is merely marketing by the jewellery industry!
Gemstones associated with the zodiac signs sometimes coincide with the birthstones by month.
