Zircon, the starlight blue variety, is a birthstone of December. A translucent gemstone, it evokes images of the snow and ice found in the winter months, making it the perfect accessory for a cold day in December.
Turquoise, the famous blue-green stone, is stunning. It can be raw, mixed with iron and rock or it can be polished to a high sheen with a translucent gleam. Either way, December birthdays are fortunate to have claim to one of the oldest stones in existence.
If cold December gave you birth,
The month of snow and ice and mirth,
Place on your hand a turquoise blue;
Success will bless whate’er you do.
This fine silver and turquoise necklace is
reminiscent of Aztec styles with geometric
patterns on the fine silver and a double
strand of turquoise beads with a center
cabochon. Available at Kress.
