January Birthstone
The magical powers of Garnet can help the owner
 in boosting positive thoughts and energies. 
According to gemstone jewelry experts.

Garnet is the gemstone associated with the first calendar month
 of the year... January.
The vision of luscious Bordeaux, Merlot or Cabernet wines 
best describes 
the color of Garnet, one of my favorite gemstones that I design jewelry with. 
In addition to the metaphysical energies of Garnet, it is particularly
 geared toward creative and personal expression when I design my jewelry collections.  Garnet gemstones simply stated makes fabulous jewelry. 
An ancient symbol of affection and friendship, Garnet jewelry  given
 as a gift is said to grant loyalty and affection among friends who 
want to keep their relation forever.  With these ideas in mind,
 please consider that our necklaces, bracelets 
and earrings are beautiful adornments, we should also consider
 them to be powerful tools to help you intentionally foster 
the kind of energy you want in your life.

Burmese Ruby Sells for $9M 
at Christie's Jewelry Auction

"The duPont Ruby" headlined Christie's Magnificent Jewels 
sale in New York City in December 2019, 
selling for well above its pre-sale estimate.

New York  - Christie's, Dec. 11, 2019 -
Magnificent Jewels sale saw "The duPont Ruby" brooch smash its pre-sale estimate.  Estimated to fetch  between $3.5 and $5.5 million the 11.20-carat Burmese ruby, emerald, diamond and  pearl brooch  ultimately  went for nearly $9 million. The jewel (seen at top) was offered by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, along  with "The duPont Emerald" featuring a no clarity enhancement, modified  rectangular step-cut 9.11-carat stone. Set in a Tiffany & Co. ring, the piece  earned $1.6 million, more than three times its low estimate.

Both jewels originated in the collection of Mrs. Alfred I. duPont.

fortune in gunpowder manufacturing in the 19th century.
Proceeds from the sale of the two pieces will 
benefit future VMFA acquisitions.

rectangular modified brilliant-cut 3.07-carat diamond set in a platinum ring, 
which earned $3.4 million, and the below 30.14-carat Kashmir sapphire and
