DID YOU KNOW?: Gemologists love topaz because it comes in some of the gem world’s largest crystals: The largest are measured in KILOS not CARATS. They also love the fact that faceted topaz takes such a high polish and can be slightly slippery to the touch.

Those with a November birthstone have two beautiful options to choose from: topaz or citrine. Topaz comes in a rainbow of colors; citrine is known for its charming yellow and orange hues. The two gems give you countless options. Your challenge will be deciding which one to pick.

Topaz was long thought to have many benefits. The ancient Greeks believed that topaz gave them strength. From the 1300s to the 1600s, Europeans thought it could thwart magic spells and dispel anger. The November birthstone was also believed to have curative powers.

Citrine is a variety of quartz, which has been used in jewelry for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks carved rock crystal ornaments that glistened like permafrost. Roman pontiffs wore rings set with massive purple amethysts and citrine has been reported in Roman jewelry. It was particularly popular in colorful Scottish jewelry from the Victorian era. Citrine, believed to derive from the French word for lemon (citron), is given for the thirteenth wedding anniversary.

Give new life to old, dated jewelry & gemstones!
More people are turning their beloved diamonds, gemstones, gold and antique jewelry into new, contemporary designs through a "Make-Over" by Diamonds On The Key. Schedule a one-on-one appointment with designer, Christina Termine, to discuss how your old & outdated jewelry, can be easily transformed into new desirable pieces!

Here are some recent jewelry "Make-Overs" re-designed to fit each client's request and personal style. See before & after photos!
We were thrilled when a client brought us multiple gemstones, a diamond bangle bracelet, a diamond Riviera necklace & a thick gold necklace, for evaluation and a custom jewelry project! See images below of her inventory and old pieces, the creative process and the beautiful new custom designs.

This image shows a layout of one of the red gemstones surrounded by diamonds in various sizes, which were unset from the Riviera diamond necklace. The design consists of a double halo of diamonds set around the perimeter of the central red gemstone, with 2 rows of diamonds graduating in size, down either side of the ring shank. The mounting was cast in 14k yellow gold, with a scrap gold credit from the original necklace, and applied to the price of the design and labor.
The client got inspiration from a magazine clipping, to use her gemstones and diamonds, to create a hanging statement pendant. Using seven of the red stones and three leftover diamonds, we custom created this long rectangular pendant to slide onto her gold omega necklace.
