FEBRUARY BIRTHSTONE
Amethyst's are said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage. At one time, only royalty could wear the gem. Ancient Greeks thought that the amethyst guarded against intoxication. In fact, amethyst comes from amethystos, a Greek word meaning “sober.” and they are said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage.

Just like Fluorite, Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to promote calm, balance, and peace. It is also used to eliminate impatience.

LOVE STORY
Some may find it a bit of a surprise at just how difficult it was for me to design and create an engagement ring for my sweetie. I have designed many engagement rings over the years and educated many clients on the difference between a rare gemstone and a diamond. I kept thinking this ring should be over-the-top somehow. A towering statement clustered with diamonds and bling! . But then realized Meredith and I are actually quite conservative and humble. Our passion tends to lie in the more unique, hard-to-find gemstones of exceptional color.. Realizing that, I now just needed the perfect stone and design.
Rarity can pertain to many things. True love is rare. Gemstones are as well.
I needed a rare colored gemstone. Something that epitomizes the beauty of finding that rare individual that you are intended to be with. Something as rare and special as Meredith is, my soon-to-be wife. Trust me, it was a challenge to find the perfect gemstone.
How do you find one to suit someone so special? Someone so unique and individualistic?
I finally found it. And without realizing the connection, I chose a “Mere”lani garnet for “Mere”dith (as she later pointed out).So
And I dare say, you will probably never see another one in Charleston. Just as I will never again meet another woman like Meredith. So maybe I did okay?
She loves the ring..
and she said "YES"
