Buying Jewelry Tip
The birthstone color for December is blue so you may also find 'December' jewelry made with blue colored glass or synthetic beads and not with genuine gemstones.
Always check jewelry descriptions carefully so that you are aware whether the piece contains real gemstones or synthetic stones.
'Turquoise' may just refer to the color of the jewelry and not necessarily the Turquoise gemstone.
Real gemstones will have flaws and impurities and synthetic stones will be flawless and clear. All are equally beautiful and it just depends what you prefer.
