A long time favorite of jewelry designers, aquamarine is the birthstone of March. The diamond-like brilliance of an aquamarine ring is sure to attract attention. Sapphire is the birthstone of September, and one of the most popular gemstones on the jewelry scene today. The deep blue color of a sapphire ring is just right for an evening out. Once considered more valuable than diamonds, a peridot ring is a must have. This "gem of the sun" is the birthstone of August and is a beautiful match for the lush green tapestry of late summer.
