A to Z April Challenge: G is for Gemstones

What are your favorite gemstones? What sparkly makes you drool at just the thought of having it?

They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but that isn’t the case for this girl!

My favorites and the reasons why are as follows:




Emeralds are a beautiful green gemstone and they represent Ireland to me. It is often referred to as the Emerald Isle. But, even more important than that, the emerald is the birthstone of our youngest son.


Rubies make me think of Dorothy’s shoes in The Wizard of Oz and “I want to go home”. Rubies are hot and fiery, full of passion. They are also the birthstone of our daughter Dorian who was born into Heaven.


Sapphires, a beautiful blue stone, represents our oldest son. All during my pregnancy, that is what we called him. I don’t remember at this point what started that nickname, but that is what we called him even though I knew I was carrying a son.

Please be sure to visit at my main blog, PS Annie! to find a variety of other posts, too!

  1. I like sapphires, to look at and admire, because I’m told it’s the stone for people born in September … and because they are so beautiful.
