Birthdays are a big deal! Whether you celebrate with a low-key brunch, a fancy dinner, or a blow-out rager, your birthday is all about you!
When you were born can tell you a lot about yourself. If you’re into astrology, you know that certain personality traits and events may be linked to the time, day, and month you were born. The month you were born also determines your birthstone! These beautiful jewel tones are fun to wear and often have hidden symbolism.
Below, we round up some fabulous Pleaser Shoes that match your birthstone and your unique style!
January Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Garnet
January’s birthstone is garnet. Because of its deep red color, garnet is associated with love – be it friendship or fiery passion. The Adore-1020SQ lace-up ankle boots are adorned with dark red and black reversible sequins for a sparkly garnet touch. Or, select something a little more dangerous like the stunning Flamingo-809SP red and black snakeskin print heels.
February Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Amethyst
Amethyst, February’s birthstone, is purple! Purple is traditionally associated with wealth, power, and royalty. Feel like a queen in the Adore-3020 thigh-high boots. These boots are covered in purple sequins, so they have all the sparkle of a birthstone fit for monarchs.
March Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Aquamarine
Aquamarine is the birthstone for people born in March. Named after the Latin word for the sea, aquamarine is associated with sailors and mermaids! Aquamarine is an amazing color for spring and summer. Our Sky-308 ankle strap sandals have shiny chrome platforms and 7” heels that come in luscious teal. For more sparkle than shine, try the Flamingo-808GF ankle strap sandals with holographic glitter-filled 8” platform heels.
April Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Diamond
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but none more so than ladies lucky enough to be born in April! Diamonds are April’s birthstone and the toughest material on earth which means they’re super strong – just like you! Go ahead and strut your stuff in the Bejeweled-3019RSF-7 thigh-high boots. These heels not only feature 8-layer chrome-plated, simulated rhinestone fringe uppers but also have rhinestone-encrusted 7” heels and 2 ¾” platforms. Look and feel like a million bucks!
May Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Emerald
Emeralds are rare and beautiful. Cleopatra herself was often adorned with emeralds and gave them out to foreign dignitaries. These deep green gemstones, May’s birthstone, were also believed to reveal deep truths. One truth we can share? Everyone will be green with envy when you walk up in the Courtly-3011 over-the-knee boots. They feature ruched, slouchy green sequins on the body and 5” heels.
June Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Pearl and Alexandrite
If you’re lucky enough to be born in June, you have not one but two birthstones to plan an outfit around! Pearls are associated with the moon goddess. Get a shoe with a lustrous glow like the night sky with the Adore-708HMG ankle strap sandals featuring holographic mini glitter wrapped platform bottoms.
June’s second birthstone is Alexandrite. The cool thing about this gem is that it changes color, from emerald green in daylight to a reddish-purple. Likewise, the Adore-1020SHG platform lace-up ankle boots have an iridescent upper that goes from purple and green.
July Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Ruby
Rubies symbolize power, wealth, and protection. European royalty believed rubies guaranteed good health, wisdom, and success in love. People with July birthdays can have their very own pair of ruby slippers with the Bejeweled-708DM ankle strap sandals. Click the 7” heels and 2 ¾” platforms together – they are totally covered in ruby red rhinestones.
August Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Peridot
Peridot is a green gemstone that is thought to bring abundance, harmony, and good luck. It also opens the heart, promoting kindness, compassion, renewal, and regeneration. Rock a sparkly green heel like the Adore-708MSLG with holographic glitter mermaid scales decorating the 2 ¾” platforms and 7” heels.
September Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Sapphire
September’s birthstone, sapphire, symbolizes nobility, sincerity, and faithfulness. Go for a true blue like the Delight-1020 6” lace-up platform ankle boots featuring a deep blue vinyl body and platform with black laces. Or opt for a little more height and a suede finish with the 8” Flamingo-1050FS mid-calf lace-up boots. These feature fully-wrapped platform bottoms with both matching sapphire & black shoelaces.
October Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Opal and Tourmaline
Opals and tourmaline are both the birthstones for October. Opals are associated with hope, purity, and truth. They are often considered lucky because they reveal many colors. If you also love a color-change moment, the Adore-709HGCH ankle strap sandals come with chrome-plated 2 ¾” platform bottoms. The opalescent uppers on these shoes shimmer like no other!
November Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Topaz and Citrine
Topaz and citrine are perfect birthstones for a November birthday – orange and yellow are quintessential autumn tones, and you can wear the yellow Adore-1020FSMG boots with any number of seasonal ensembles. Topaz is also thought to strengthen intellect and improve your mood.
December Birthstone Shoe Inspiration: Tanzanite, Zircon, and Turquoise
Last but certainly not least, December has 3 birthstones to choose from – tanzanite, zircon, and turquoise. Just like all three of these gemstones, the Adore-1020MG ankle boots feature a whole lot of sparkle in shades of blue. These platform lace-up ankle boots are perfect for winter and for your wardrobe all year round!
