Blue Topaz also represents strength and inner peace. Blue Topaz is also said to be a symbol of love and loyalty, which makes it a great romantic gift as well as the perfect present for a close friend, especially those born in December.
Turquoise is the second birthstone for December. It is one of the oldest stones to be used in jewellery. In European tradition, the gift of a turquoise ring means “forget me not.” Turquoise is considered a national treasure in Tibet, where it is believed to grant health, good fortune, and protection from bad deeds.
