Pandora Birthstone Charms
Each month of the year is represented by a specific birthstone. Pandora bead jewelry offers a select range of birthstone Pandora charms to celebrate each month as well.
These Sterling silver beads make an ideal gift for someone special on their birthday. What better way, really, is there to celebrate that special day than by giving a birthstone charm to complement someone's existing Pandora charm bracelet?
Of course if the gift recipient doesn't have a charm bracelet then you would need to do more than just give one single birthstone charm. If that's the case, you could look into giving a completed Pandora bracelet. If you're not able to give a full bracelet, due to price restraints, you can make a very nice bracelet with just three charms. That way, there'll always be something to give on other birthdays or special occasions--a new charm to complete the bracelet.
In fact you can never have too many Pandora bracelet charms. That's because they're fantastic to mix and match. By just switching around a few charms you can have a whole new-look bracelet, that will match any mood, outfit or occasion.
You really can't go wrong by giving Pandora charm bracelets for birthday gifts, especially when you add the beautiful birthstone charms!
Which Pandora Charm for Which Month?
Wondering which charm matches each month? I will include a quick reference guide below for you, based on what Pandora jewelry has released.
The list differs somewhat from some records of which gem matches which month, though I have found that lists vary depending on the country that issues them. In most cases, though, this matches fairly closely the "official" birthstone list established by the American Jewelers Association and American Gem society in 1952. In cases where the stone differs, it often matches in color.
- February: Amethyst
- March: Aquamarine
- April: Quartz
- May: Chrysoprase
- June: Pearl
- July: Carneol
- August: Peridot
- September: Sapphire
- October: Turmaline
- November: Amber
- December: Lapis
All Pandora Birthstone charms currently retail for $35.
Birthday Ideas from Pandora Charms
Not only are birthstones used to celebrate birth, but each month also has a specific birth flower and a color. Using this information, you can mix and match the Pandora jewelry you give accordingly.
A stunning birthday gift could comprise of the specific birthstone Pandora charm, a Pandora flower charm and another piece of matching jewelry. Not only do the specific birthstones have gems matching the month of birth, but there are many other charms available, with stones, that could be combined to give the ultimate Pandora birthday gift.
For example, for someone born in June you could give them their Pearl birthstone charm, and the 14K gold Dangle Peridot Rose with Pearl earrings, and top it off by giving the Pandora Rose Bead with Pink Cubic Zirconias, as the rose is June's birth flower.
For someone born in August (Peridot stone) you could combine the August Peridot birthstone charm with Pandora Dangle perido Rose earrings, and the 14K Peridot Rose with Diamond necklace.
Be creative, you can come up with some awesome combinations that will match any budget. Simply go online to one of the online jewelry stores that sell Pandora beads, punch in the birthstone in their search button, and choose from what is displayed as results. There is no end of choices you can make to perfect Pandora charm bracelets.
