Luxury Jewellery 2022: December Birthstones | The Beat Asia


Birthstone Gem Jewellery for December Babies 2022

Happy December to all the winter babies out there! As the weather in Hong Kong gets cooler, we’re here to compensate for the cold by icing out our necks, wrists, and fingers.

December babies have three stunning hues of blue to choose from. Turquoise, with is vibrant blue-green matrix, played an important role from the moment it was first discovered –adorning the hands of pharaohs, Chinese artisans, and the Native American Apache. Believed to guarantee health and good fortune to the wearer, the turquoise would carry many meanings throughout its joint history with mankind.

Tanzanite, with is highly saturated velvety blue purple was discovered most recently in the 1960s. Its international appeal was not lost on jewellers, with Tiffany & Co. quickly staking a claim in distributing the prized stone for jewellery fiends everywhere.

Zircon, famous for its broad colour spectrum and likeness to the diamond – brings a new variety of options for the gem fanatic. However, much like the Victorians, the blue zircon holds a very special place in our hearts for its uniquely piercing cyan glare.

To celebrate your birth month, we’ve chosen our top picks of evergreen birthstone accessories that will stay with you long after the winter season. We hope your year goes out with a bang!
