What Your Birthstone Reveals About You and What You Value in a Relationship

What Your Birthstone Reveals About You and What You Value in a Relationship

Your birthstone has a significance tied into it and in many ways, describes the kind of person you are and what you look for in your relationship.

Nearly every woman loves some kind of jewelry or the other. But her taste in ornaments might not really tell us much about her personality. However, her birthstone can reveal that and more. With loads of history behind it, each birthstone was originally meant to heighten its healing powers and therapeutic effects, according to Bead Trails. As the centuries passed, the meanings of the gems changed but the significance of it in the wearer's presence stayed the same. 

A woman's birthstone doesn't define her but it molds her and guides her to the choices she makes, including what she values in her partner.

So it comes as no surprise that you look for the same in your partner - his ability to make you feel protected and cared for in the relationship.

You're also the type of person who feels the need to be completely honest, no matter who is at the receiving end. So when it comes to your partner, you value honesty which actually helps in avoiding misunderstandings and letting fights rot the relationship.
