DIAMOND AND BIRTHSTONE GUIDE

Birthstones and Diamonds for Fingerprint Jewellery

Birthstones have been used in the making of jewellery since the first century, when it was believed that there was a connection between certain gemstones, the 12 months of the year and the 12 signs of the zodiac.

It was not until the eighteen century, in Poland, that it became popular to wear a single gemstone associated with a calendar month.

In 1937, The National Association of Goldsmiths here ion Britain created their own standardized list of birthstones which we still use today.

Many pieces of personalised fingerprint jewellery made by us at Sophia Alexander can be set with your choice of beautiful precious birthstones or diamonds.

To add any birthstone to your fingerprint jewellery, please add £20 to the total cost (per stone).
For diamond setting please add £60 to the total cost of your jewellery (price based on a single standard diamond).

Fingerprint Wedding rings and Commitment rings are typically set with two diamond, one each side of your fingerprint to frame it.

Gemstones can also be set into rings if required.

If you would like to add more than one stone, please contact us to place a bespoke order.
