Birthstone Bling by Chelsea DesignWorks

People throughout the world love gemstones and the myths and secrets they hold. Birthstone Bling is a digital collection by Chelsea DesignWorks of the twelve birthstones that are associated with each month of the year. There is a 36-inch panel that indicates each month and its related birthstone. For example, garnet is allied to January, amethyst to February, aquamarine to March, diamond to April and so on. The collection also includes a facetted all-over pattern in twelve colours indicating the coloured stone for each month – these are garnet, amethyst, aquamarine, diamond, emerald, alexandrite, ruby, peridot, sapphire, tourmaline, citrine and zircon. Other coordinates include a sparkling tossed melee stones pattern alternating on a choice of either a white or black background and a large multi-coloured round gemstone all-over. Each round stone in this pattern is three-inches in diameter and can be cut apart and used for appliqué or yoyos.
