What it means to have a Birthday in April

Spring has arrived, the days are getting longer, and we’re all eating our body weight in chocolate. This means only one thing – it’s April! There’s no messing around when it comes to the birthstone for April. If you are born in this month, you get the fanciest stone of them all. The Diamond.

Diamonds are the most precious gem in the world, but also the toughest. Its toughness and beauty makes the diamond an obvious representation of eternal and lasting love. Wearing diamonds is believed to help inspire creativity and spark the imagination. In the ancient times, diamonds were thought to be actual tears of the Gods, or even shards of fallen stars!

Aries is the star sign associated with April birthdays. The first astrological sign in the zodiac, and represented by a charging Ram, they put all their energy into any challenge that faces them. The ram is a true symbol of passion and power. Interestingly, the spirit animal of Aries is the cheetah, which perfectly matches the fierce spirit of this zodiac sign. It comes as no surprise that fire is the elemental representation for Aries, fueled by passion, independence and loyalty. They have a fire in their belly when it comes to their strong determination to succeed.

People who fall in this zodiac sign are independent, courageous, optimistic and incredibly loyal.  Their positive outlook on life gives them a belief that all their dreams are possible, and nothing can get in their way. You can be sure an Aries will have your back no matter what, ready to take on the next adventure. This zodiac doesn’t come without weaknesses though. Aries are born leaders with a strong character, but sometimes will find it hard to listen to other views that aren’t their own. They can get moody and impatient, particularly when things don’t go their way, but that’s only because they’re so passionate! Elton John, Lady Gaga and Emma Watson are amongst the celebrities that are Aries, all known to share the fiery and bold characteristics of this star sign.

We have a striking selection of diamond jewellery to offer, ideal for splashing out on a loved one, or even just to indulge yourself with. If someone special to you has a birthday in April, why not treat them to some of our gold star diamond stud earrings or a delicate drop like these grey pearl and diamond earrings.

If diamonds aren’t your thing, we offer alternatives, such as white topaz, to achieve the same look without breaking the bank! This silver & white topaz heart necklace or silver disc necklace can even be personalised with your own unique message. Or if it’s a charm that you’re after, we have an April birthstone Thomas Sabo charm. Take a peek at the rest of the April birthday gifts and our full diamond jewellery collection.
