The tradition of birthstone dates back to ancient times. In fact, the concept originates in one of the oldest books of the bible, Exodus. Aaron, the brother of Moses, is described as wearing a breastplate with 12 precious stones representing the 12 tribes of Israel. With time, philosophers, poets, and jewelry collectors began to link this tradition with to the 12 months of the yearand certain characteristics became associated with each of the stones. Diamond, which is the April Birthstone, symbolizes strength, affection, eternity, clarity, balance, and (as we all know,) unending love.
