Guest Video: Birthstones


We’ve all seen the basic list of birthstones, but what are they really and what do they mean?

This video tries to answer both those questions, and it does surprisingly well (and has over three million views on YouTube) despite the slightly creepy-sounding mechanical voice narration.

Hope this helps you plan gifts this year! (Uh, winning the lottery might be useful in some cases, too.)
