Birthstones Month of April

Birthstones Month of April

 She who from April dates her years,
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
 For vain repentance flow; this stone,
 Emblem of innocence, is known.

~ Tiffany & Co. published this poem and others for each month for the first time in a pamphlet in 1870.
