Pearl Birthstone June

Who can forget the stunning "Heart of the Ocean" sapphire necklace worn by Kate Winslet's Rose in the "Titanic," and later thrown back into the ocean? Or Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly window-shopping in the opening scene of "Breakfast at Tiffanys?"


When we think of jewelry, we think of love, beauty, glamour, intrigue and more. Always fashionable and always exciting, jewelry always is a gift to be remembered forever.


The holidays are the time to honor our loved ones and show them just how special they are to us. There's no better way to express your feelings than with custom jewelry, the most valuable, romantic and lasting gift you can ever give.

Sunny and Bright Citrinecitrine ring

November's birthstone, citrine, is as warm as a Van Gogh painting of sunflowers.  The name citrine comes from an old French word, citrin, meaning lemon.  One of the more rare forms of quartz, this gemstone ranges in color from the palest yellow to a dark amber named Madeira because of its resemblance to the red wine. 


It is believed that some citrine may have actually begun as amethyst, but heat from nearby molten rock changed it to the yellow form of quartz.  Citrine is known to change color when subjected to heat and is routinely heated in the jewelry-making process to intensify its color.  For this same reason, though, this gemstone should not be left in direct sunlight for a long time because it will permanently alter the color.  Most citrine is mined in Brazil, but other sources of the quartz are Bolivia and Madagascar. 

Reminder of the Fall Colors
Orange Gemstone
The rich color of orange plays into many gemstones used in jewelry. It's always a rich and vibrant natural color. Popular stones are carnelian, orange amber, hessonite garnet, red aventurine, and fire opal.

Orange gemstones contain some of the fiery energies of red, but are gentler with a more creative spirit. They are used to promote personal power and are useful for people who could use more self esteem. It is thought that if you place orange gemstones around your home or office you'll stimulate creativity, mental quickness, and ability to adjust to changes.
