The Birthstone for April is Diamond
April birthstone jewelry is usually set with the brilliant, translucent April birthstone diamond. However fancy colored diamonds or black diamonds are considered a trendy alternative to the conventional clear diamond.
Alternative (and more affordable!) birthstones for April are any transparent or white gemstones such as clear quartz, white sapphires and white topaz.
Diamond or quartz birthstone jewelry is an ideal personal and meaningful gift for your friends and relatives with birthdays in April, or choose a piece for yourself to wear during April.
