Astrology and Jewelry

Early civilizations such as India and Babylon have attributed gemstones with magical properties. Over time, astrologers assigned gems of certain colors to the twelve signs of the zodiac to help people influence the planets in their favor.

*The dates here are an approximation. If you were born on the last or first date mentioned (on the cusp), you will need to consult an astrologer to figure out your precise star sign (also known as sun sign). The hour of your birth might be necessary in the calculation. Even so: you are probably influenced by both signs.
