Mattel has created many popular Barbie lines that stand the test of time, including this collection that we love: the Birthstone Barbies. There are more than one lines of Birthstone Barbies but the first was released in 2002. The dolls have become a popular collector’s item.
Some people are collectors who want to buy the entire collection because they love Barbie. Others just want the Barbie that represents their birthstone or buy them for a child to match their birth month.
Birthstone Barbies Birthstone Collection
Here are the 2003 Birthstone Barbies on Mattel’s site. Each doll is dressed in a floor length gown with gloves (you cannot see their shoes). The dress matches the color of the doll’s assigned birthstone.
There are 36 versions of Birthstone Barbies. Each month has 3 Barbies per birth month. They all look similar but with a different skin tone. They are wearing long gowns with a wrap. Each is wearing a birthstone necklace with their respective birthstone.
Birthstone Beauties Pink Label Collection
Next came the Birthstone Beauties in 2007 – see them here. These Barbies have a more contemporary look with shorter dresses and they all go by the name of Miss. Instead of just a birthstone necklace, they have a birthstone bracelet too! Each comes with a small puppy on a leash. The puppy’s leash and crown match and are in the same birthstone shade.
Each Birthstone Beauty Barbie doll is dressed in a festive lace cocktail dress with velveteen shrug. She wears a gorgeous March birthstone necklace and charm bracelet

The Emerald Barbie has a similar dress design as the other Birthstone Barbies, but the rich, forest green color proves to be a very striking choice. It is definitely an accurate portrayal of the bold emerald stone.
June Pearl Birthstone Barbie
Although the color scheme for the Pearl Barbie has similarities to the Diamond Barbie’s attire, it is definitely different. A softer look is portrayed with a more cream undertone complimented with of course sparkle. The classiness of the cream evening dress definitely portrays the classiness associated with the delicate pearl.
July Ruby Barbie
