Which Sapphire Sets off Your Skin Tone?

Which Sapphire Sets off Your Skin Tone?

It’s September which means that it’s the month of the beautiful sapphire. These sparkling gemstones are one of the three precious stones which have their base in the crystalline form of aluminum oxide: corundum. Rubies and padparadscha are corundum cousins of our typically blue, glittering sapphires which differ from their beautiful relations because of the very special inclusion of trace element, iron.

Dazzling Diamonds for April

Dazzling Diamonds for April

Diamonds have delighted women and poets for centuries. They are the most revered, most praised, of gemstones. Diamonds are the traditional birthstone for April. Although they come in many colors, clear or white diamonds are the most popular variety. Most people would agree with poet Anne Sexton's description of "diamond as white as sun on the sea."

"I have always felt a gift diamond shines so much better than one you buy for yourself."  ~ Mae West

That attitude may have made sense when Mae West was filming black and white movies, but today, there's nothing wrong with a woman buying herself jewelry. After all, who knows your taste better than you?
