WHAT ARE BIRTHSTONES?

In the 1st century AD, the Roman-Jewish historian Titus Flavius ​​Josephus interpreted that the twelve precious stones on the chest shield of the high priest "Aaron" (a brother of Moses) were linked to the twelve months of the year and the twelve signs of the zodiac (zodiac stones ) gave. The execution of the breast pocket called Hoshen is described in Exodus as follows:


"It should be square, folded up, a span long and a span wide. Set it with set gemstones in four rows:

  • ... the first row with ruby, topaz and emerald;
  • the second row with carbuncle, sapphire and jasper;
  • the third row with agate, hyacinth and amethyst;
  • the fourth row with chrysolite, carnelian and onyx; ...
    ... they should be set in gold and set in place. "

 

In 1912 the "American National Association of Jewelers" (today: The Jewelers of America) standardized the traditional zodiac stones, which were culturally created over centuries or millennia, and created an "official list". This was updated by the "Jewelry Industry Council of America" ​​in 1952 and by the "American Gem Trade Association" in cooperation with "The Jewelers of America" ​​in early 2000. The British "National Association of Goldsmiths" (today: National Association of Jewelers) developed its own list in 1937, which was also updated and largely resembles the American list.
