A quick meander through a few more pages of Lady Penelope's Xmas 1968 Fab Club annual and here we have another jewellery related article. She really is a girl after my own heart with all her jewellery talk although, I have to admit, she beats me hands down on the wardrobe stakes. Mind you, a tiara and fur would not look out of place in very glamorous Ilkley. Lady P has a different take on lucky birthstones. As far as she's concerned it not the month in which you were born but, rather, the date.
Born on the 1st, 10th, 19th or 28th: Lucky birthstone - topaz
Born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th: Lucky birthstone - moonstone
Born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st, 30th: Lucky birthstone - amethyst
Born on the 5th, 14th, 23rd: Lucky birthstone - diamond (and how lucky are these dates!)
Born on the 6th, 15th, 24th: Lucky birthstone - turquoise
Born on the 7th, 16th or 25th: Lucky birthstone - aquamarine (that's me)
Born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd, 31st: Lucky birthstone - crystal (oh dear, never mind)
Born on the 8th, 17th, 26th: Lucky birthstone - onyx
Born on the 9th, 18th, 27th: Lucky birthstone - ruby
Hope you get the birthstone you want if not the birthstone you wer meant to have!
