Go December, It’s Your Birthday…

By La Petite Acadienne

If cold December gave you birth
The month of snow and ice and mirth
Place on your hand a turquoise blue;
Success will bless whate’er you do.

Greetings, my little winter chickadees!

Can you believe it is already December? I’m still trying to figure out where in blue blazes September went!

December babies get a bit of a raw deal — especially the ones who were born near or on Christmas. They tend to get the “combo” gift, which is supposed to basically cover both events…but never quite does.  Plus, your birthday party tends to get rolled into holiday parties, instead of being ALL about the ever-so-fabulous you.

However, there is a lovely silver lining to all of this — December has two birthstones, both of which are absolutely stunning:  blue topaz, and turquoise.

So that means that you can ask for some blue topaz jewelry for your birthday, and turquoise for the holidays! It’s only fair, after all.

You could ask for these lovely earrings:

Maybe I’m weird, but I prefer the look of turquoise with gold over the look of turquoise with silver.  I think turquoise with silver can often (not always, but often) wind up looking like one has just  spent three weeks at an artists’ retreat in New Mexico. Which is great— but it’s not usually a look I tend to cultivate.

You could ask for this stunning blue topaz ring:

This ring has such an interesting look to it. Because of the wire wrapping, you would definitely have to clean it often, as I can see the spaces between the wires getting all gunked up with the detritus of life.  It’d definitely be worth the effort, however.

These topaz earrings are just lovely:

So pretty and delicate, yet still very striking, no?

And if all else fails, you could always consider a piece that incorporates both blue topaz AND turquoise! Now THAT is an acceptable “combo” gift for you December babies!

Bonne fête to all of our December readers!
