December Babies Hit the Jackpot With These 3 Birthstones



Tanzanite, turquoise, zircon. Yet again, another month of stellar birthstones that seem appropriately chosen for the season. What’s a December baby to do, with so many glorious options? Tanzanite is rich in its blue-purple hue, like a cool blast to a winter wardrobe. Turquoise is cheerful and summery, no matter what the temperature. And zircon. My gosh. It’s just so, so gorgeous—yes, I know it comes in other colors, but for purposes of this winter wonderland, let’s stick with blue. That blue that positively glows with electric color. Can’t blame a girl for falling for it, right? Here are some of my most recent favorite jewels, featuring any one of December’s very wonderful, very worthwhile three birthstones. Consider these at the top of many a wish list.
