Every girl loves to feel special on her birthday, and a birthstone is on thing that cane make her feel truly celebrated. Her birthstone is a lovely way to show her how special she is (especially when it's a princess pink birthstone)!
Green tourmaline was first thought to be discovered in the 1500's where it was confused with emerald. It wasn't until the 1800's that scientists discovered that it was its very own gemstone. Because of the confusion, the name even means "mixed gems" Sri Lankan. Tourmaline can be found in a beautiful rainbow of colors, but here we focus on the lovely and feminine pink hues.
It has been found all over the world including California. It makes me want to take a quick trip down to San Diego where they still find the beautiful, multi-hued gems!
For October's birthstone, I focus on the dainty pink tourmaline, which is particularly delicate and lovely. October actually has two birth stones, opal & tourmaline. Because of its gorgeous color, pink tourmaline is a favorite for jewelry for girls.
When you gaze into a piece of tourmaline, you're likely to spy all of the hues of pink, soft delicate pinks, touches of deeper rich pinks, and everything in-between. This variety adds a beautiful depth to her October birthstone creating a natural ombre effect.
Pink Tourmaline - October's birthstone, is a favorite among girls of all ages, whether their birthdays are in October or not, because of its beautiful color. Baby Pink tourmaline jewelry has a particularly delicate and feminine look and feel, which makes it a great choice for new babies. The stones look beautiful paired with real freshwater pearls, silver or gold. It's the perfect choice for your precious princess!

Like creating special (and fun) family traditions, celebrating the small moments with big hugs and tiny tea parties, and how I’m embracing mama-hood with a smile...and maybe even a little extra time for myself.
I think that family holds so much magic, from babyhood to adulthood. So, it’s important to me that we celebrate all of it - in my own family here in Lompoc California, and in the LGP family all over the world.
I’ve made this blog into a little place where we can do all of those things together, with teacups and toadstools, tied up with a bow.
