October Jewelry Color of the Month: Copper

October Jewelry Color of the Month: Copper

October has arrived, and the weather has grown cool.  Thoughts turn to shorter days and Halloween.  Pumpkins and gourds are starting to appear. What color would say October better than copper?  A warm color whose reflection adds coolness, copper so also the color of dried leaves and hot fires.

Dried Leaves

The colors of fall leaves are a joy even for those who aren't looking forward to winter.  The Carved Jade Copper Gemstone Beaded bracelet calls to mind all the colors we see in the changing leaves as they near the end.  The carving in the multi colored jade calls to mind the veins we see on leaves close up, while the copper reminds us of those last sparks of bright color.

Garnet Gemstone: More Than Just a Birthstone

Garnet Gemstone: More Than Just a Birthstone

The Garnet gemstone is the birthstone of January. The stone is a group of minerals that comes in a rainbow of colors ranging from a deep red/orange of the Mandarin Garnet to a green color of the Tsavorite and the usually recognized Pyrope Garnet. It can be given for the second, sixth, and nineteenth wedding anniversaries and it symbolizes eternal friendship and trust. The name comes from the Latin word granatum meaning "seed-like" referencing it to a pomegranate because of it's looks and color. The garnet gemstone is an interesting stone in terms of history, legends, and Greek mythology.
The Magnificent Allure of Emerald Gemstones

The Magnificent Allure of Emerald Gemstones

merald gemstones signify the month of May. Like spring, emeralds represent rebirth, good fortune, youth, and renewal. 

Emerald is rooted from smaragdus, defining green in Greek.

The first emerald was unearthed in Egypt in 300 B.C. Cleopatra infamously adored the stone. In ancient Egyptian texts, Cleopatra found the "Cleopatra Emerald" weighing at an unimaginable 97 karats. She split the gemstone in half, giving it to Marc Antony. After Marc Antony fought the Romans and died, architects tried to find his missing half. They never located it.

Interesting Facts, Legends, and Myths About Gemstones

Interesting Facts, Legends, and Myths About Gemstones

Precious and semi-precious stones have been honored for many centuries. The folklore concerning them is definitely fascinating. All cultures treasure the stories that go back to the beginning of history.

Birthstones Originated in the Bible

It is believed that the Breastplate of Aaron is the origin of birthstones. Exodus 28, 15-30, calls for the twelve stones of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, corresponding to the zodiac signs of the time, be set into four rows. Since our calendar month system was not known at the time of Exodus, birthstones became more commonly associated with a person’s calendar month of birth.

Healing Properties of the March Birthstone

Healing Properties of the March Birthstone

Aquamarine is a beryl gemstone which beautifully ranges in pale blue, blue-green, and teal. Legend states it originated in the treasure chest of mermaids. Sailor's made it their "lucky stone," and even Romans and Greeks believed it kept them safe. No wonder the name derives from Latin words meaning water and sea! Adopting aquamarine as the March birthstone took place in 1912 and it is also the planetary stone for the month's opening zodiac sign, Pisces.
