4 Vintage Birthstone Images
Here is a new collection that I am starting today and I will be adding more to it soon. It’s a set of Vintage Birthstone Images. These would make such fun Birthday Cards or Gift Tags for someone that has a Birthday on the corresponding month that the image relates too. I have been on the hunt for more months of these cards, so that I can represent all 12 of them. They will be a mix of different types of images. Probably all of the cards had a complete set at one time, but it can be difficult to find complete sets in old Postcards like these. Anyway, perhaps you will find it more fun to have a variety. Or who knows, over time, they may all surface … we shall see! Either way it’s fun collecting this type of thing and I hope you have fun creating with them as well.
Winter Birthstone Images
Here is the latest addition to this collection. Here we have a February Birthday card. We have another gold Horseshoe only this time it has some pretty purple Amethyst stones on it. I could even see cutting out the purple gems here to use on a project, if you didn’t want to use the whole card. Inside of the Horseshoe is a bit of info about people born in February.
Next up we have the month of January. There is a lovely picture of a red gemstone necklace, that is set with Garnets for January’s Birthstone, and has a long Gold chain with additional stones on it. There is a charming pastoral scene in the background, complete with a cottage, church, snow, sheep and some Snowdrop flowers… and even a rainbow!
We’re starting off themed months with Winter, and to be even more specific, December. Which just happens to be my Birthday month! Featured above is a metallic Gold Horseshoe, that is encrusted with eight Turquoise Gems. There is a little bit of advice for December birthday people inside of the Horseshoe. You could punch up the metallic bits, by coloring those areas in with gold metallic ink, or adding some glitter. Pretty!
Birthstones of each Month
This is a fabulous Vintage Birthstones Image! What a fun find this one is! Shown above is an old Advertising Card featuring Birthstones for each month of the year. This one is an old Jewelry Store Advertising piece, for a Jewelry Store in New York. Aren’t the stones lovely? If you make Jewelry, this might be a fun piece to print and give away in your booth, or to add to your customer’s jewelry orders if you have an Etsy shop.
