Do you think it's a good idea to wear your birthstone as jewellery? One problem is determining what your birthstone actually is. These days some web sites will try and push 10 different stones as correct for your month or starsign - the notion that they're trying to cover all their bases comes to mind.
I have a diamond bracelet, diamond being so far as I can tell the traditional birthstone for April/Aries, and an emerald ring, emerald being traditional for May/Taurus. I notice my mood seems better if I wear them relatively frequently - I don't think it's just a placebo effect as I wasn't sure what effect they would have and it kind of surprised me that I felt better wearing them, I wasn't really expecting it.
Anyone else like to share any experiences?
