Precious and semi-precious gems linked to birthdays date as far back as the 15th century.  Unlike today, early birthstones were linked to signs of the Zodiac instead of calendar months.  Almost everyone appreciates a birthstone, and it shows that you actually put some thought into the gift.  Many people believe that wearing their birthstone protects them and brings them good luck.
