With Colorful Gems & Jewelry!
Happy Birthday To All Those Born In August!
Peridot
A striking olivine gemstone, is brought to the surface by volcanoes and has sometimes been found in the meteor remnants of our solar system's birth. It brings joy, health, and abundance, and it encourages positive emotional states.
Spinel
Although the vast color spectrum of spinel often leaves it mistaken for ruby or sapphire, its distinguishing features like an octahedral crystal structure and single refraction are what sets it apart from other gemstones. Spinel typically comes in vivid red, cobalt blue, bright pink, and vibrant orange but may also be found in black, violet, greenish blue, grey, pale pink, mauve, yellow, and even brown.
Love Stories
Happy Birthday
Designing one-of-a-kind works of art for our clients is always an honor, but one request this month was an especially pleasant surprise. The client met with Michael to plan the custom design for a hand-fabricated ring with a cobalt blue spinel center from Sri Lanka, surrounded by diamonds and Kenyan tsavorite garnets. The ring is set in 18 karat yellow gold and made the perfect "Happy Birthday, my love" keepsake gift from this incredibly thoughtful man to his beloved companion. What a wonderful reminder that custom jewelry is a phenomenal way to show your loved ones how special they are to you!
