We'll admit it: We're suckers for personalized versions of just about anything. Monogrammed sheets? Entirely unnecessary, but that Pottery Barn catalog is too tempting to resist. Name-emblazoned varsity jackets? We were all about them last season thanks to rag & bone. So, it should come as no surprise that we're fans of birthstone jewelry, which feels much more special than a random trinket.
If you're searching for a thoughtful gift that actually requires very little thought — or just want to invest in a gorgeous, new piece with your tax refund! — a birthstone bauble is the perfect buy. We've already given you the 411 on the meaning behind the jewels, but now it's time to get shopping. Ahead, we've sourced the 12 best stones (one for each month, of course) that L.A. designers have to offer. The best part? You don't even need an excuse to swipe up one of these pretties.
