Key Facts about the Taurus Birthstone
Dates: April 20 – May 20
Symbol: The Bull
Personality traits: Responsible, grounded, passionate, determined, affectionate
Interests: Painting, collecting jewellery, singing, reading, writing
What is a Taurus like?
Personality-wise, a Taurus is thought to be responsible, reliable, patient and generous. Being an Earth sign, Taureans are well-grounded and practical which makes them incredibly hard workers. A Taurean will endure their decisions and stick things out until the end.
As well as being some of the hardest workers around, the commitment seen in those with the Taurus sign makes them fabulous long term partners and lifelong friends. They treat friends like family and hold those closest to them very dearly.
What does the symbol of the Bull mean?
The symbol of the Taurus sign is that of the wandering bull. According to an ancient astrological story, the bull betrayed their best friend – the goddess Hera – and as a punishment was made to wander the earth in order to find freedom.
The interpretation for this story for a Taurus doesn’t mean that they are lonely and separated, but rather that they may have to search a little longer in order to make true, lasting connections. Once they do, however, they are fiercely loyal and will always go the extra mile for those that they love.

Taurus Birthstone Jewellery
A birthstone for Taurus people born in April is the stunning diamond. Although a piece of cubic zirconia or white Swarovski crystal jewellery will also work as a more affordable gift option!
However, most Taureans are born in May, therefore their birthstone is beautiful green emerald. It is said that wearing a piece of emerald jewellery allows a Taurus to channel the energies of Venus, creating a powerful aura.
Here at Joshua James, we have a selection of emerald birthstone jewellery for you to choose from. Our personal opinion is that it looks especially beautiful when set in rich gold! As you can see, the deep green hues really come to life when paired with glowing gold tones.
