David Connolly's signature collection is renowned for it's gorgeous selection of colored stones. While this elaborate collection includes our precious gemstones, it's the affordability of our semi-precious stones that allows David to create signature large stone jewelry in both classic and fancy cuts.

These simple designs are set with or without diamond accents, for an elegant take on the classic design.
When one thinks of semi-precious jewelry, a style sure to be at the top of the list is birthstone jewelry. This favorite of our symbolic jewelry collection is beloved not only for its beauty and brilliance, but for its symbolic power and meaning. It's important to note that David’s collection offers more than just classic prong set round earrings, but bold, romantic, and memorable jewelry set with any of our birthstones. The wide selection of birthstone jewelry in David Connolly’s collection allows you to find the perfect piece of birthstone jewelry to define your style, with the classic stud earring, bold vintage rings, romantic bracelets, dangle earrings, retro brooches, and more.
Garnet is the January birthstone. This semi-precious color stone is a member of the Garnet mineral family and comes in gorgeous shades of red and purple. Rhodolite garnets are especially unique due to their vivid raspberry color. In addition to the January birthstone, Garnets also make a lovely symbolic jewelry gift to mark a 2nd anniversary. Spiritually, Garnet represents prosperity.
Amethyst is the February birthstone. This semi-precious purple color stone is a member of the Quartz mineral family. In addition to the February birthstone, the amethyst makes an exquisite 6th and 17th anniversary gift when given as symbolic jewelry. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes serenity.
Aquamarine is the March birthstone. This semi-precious color stone is a member of the Beryl mineral family and has a beautiful water-like pastel blue color with gentle green undertones. In addition to the March birthstone, Aquamarines make lovely 19th anniversary gifts when given as symbolic jewelry. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes intellect.
Diamond is the April birthstone. The Diamond falls into the precious stone category, belonging to its own mineral family—the Diamond. The higher the quality diamond, the less color in the stone; the less color in the stone, the more prismatic the flashes of color. In addition to the April birthstone, the Diamond is also given as symbolic jewelry to commemorate 60th and 75th anniversaries. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes love and strength.
Emerald is the May birthstone. This precious color stone is a member of the Beryl mineral family and has a vibrant green color with natural internal fissures. In addition to the May birthstone, the emerald makes a gorgeous symbolic jewelry gift for 20th and 35th anniversaries. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes healing.
The June birthstone can be one of two stones: Alexandrite or Pearl.
Alexandrite is a highly rare stone; it is the only created stone available in the David Connolly collection. A natural alexandrite is a member of the Chrysoberyl family and is a rare color changing stone. In natural light, the Alexandrite is an enchanting blue/green, while in incandescent light it is a vivid red/purple. Spiritually, Alexandrite represents intellect and is the symbolic jewelry for the 55th wedding anniversary.
Pearls fall in the calcium carbonate family. At David Connolly, our pearl jewelry is set with Akoya cultured pearls, which are a pristine white with iridescent flashes of color. Spiritually, pearls represent purity and, when gifted as symbolic jewelry, are used to honor the 3rd and 30th anniversaries.
Ruby is the July birthstone. This precious color stone is a member of the Corundum mineral family and features a rich red color. In addition to the July birthstone, the Ruby makes an elegant symbolic jewelry gift to represent 15th and 40th anniversaries. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes passion.
Peridot is the August birthstone. This semi-precious green colored stone is a member of the Olivine mineral family. With vibrant hints of yellow, this green stone is energetic and lively. In addition to the August birthstone, the Peridot makes a lovely symbolic jewelry gift for 15th anniversaries. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes protection.
Sapphire is the September birthstone. This precious color stone is a member of the Corundum mineral family and comes in an array of radiant colors. At David Connolly, sapphire jewelry is available in either a deep blue or vibrant pink color. In addition to the September birthstone, Sapphires make an exquisite symbolic jewelry gift for 5th and 45th anniversaries. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes truth.
The October birthstone can be one of two stones: Opal or Tourmaline.
Opal is a stone formed in highly unique circumstances. Mineral wise, opals fall in the Hydrated Silica family. In dry climates, great deluges of water dissolve silica and pull it deep into the earth, forming silica deposits. As the water evaporates, the deposits of silica eventually harden into opals. At David Connolly, our white semi-translucent opals dance with flashes of glimmering rainbow shimmer. Spiritually, the stone symbolizes hope.
Tourmaline falls into its namesake mineral family—Tourmaline. While this stone is available in an array of colors, the David Connolly collection favors the lively Pink Tourmaline variety. In addition to the October birthstone, the Tourmaline makes a striking symbolic jewelry gift for 8th anniversaries. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes grounding.
Citrine is today’s dominant November birthstone. This semi-precious color stone is a member of the Quartz mineral family, featuring a vibrant yellow-orange color. In addition to the November birthstone, the Citrine makes a radiant symbolic jewelry gift for 13th anniversaries. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes energy.
However, a prior November birthstone, that many gemological purists still prefer, is the Imperial Topaz. The color is similar to that of Citrine, but the stone’s rarity makes it more expensive and less accessible to jewelry enthusiasts.
Zircon is the current December birthstone. This semi-precious color stone is a member of the Zircon mineral family and comes in a number of colors. The double refractive nature of the Zircon is what makes it most unique. All light that enters the Zircon stone is duplicated, giving each internal facet a mirror-like quality of never ending facets. At David Connolly, the stunning Blue Zircon is a favorite and offered in a variety of our jewelry. Spiritually, this stone symbolizes wisdom.
It is important to note that while Blue Zircon is a semi-precious stone, it does fall on the higher end of pricing, making it less accessible to many jewelry enthusiasts. There is a growing movement to offer Blue Topaz in its place, which is similar in color to the Blue Zircon. Symbolically, Blue Topaz symbolizes clarity. In addition to being an alternative December birthstone, Blue Topaz makes a beautiful symbolic jewelry gift for 4th anniversaries.
