‘Tis the Season for JOY & LOVE
‘Tis the Season for SHARING & GIVING
Gifts given at Christmas (or during The Festival of Lights), should be worthy of this magical holiday season! This means your gift should keep your loving celebrations remembered and enjoyed for years and years. This is NOT the time for fast food, fast fashion or money wasted on gifts with no meaning or value. It’s the time to add some Christmas Sparkle to our Life (and others’) with gifts of lasting value and real meaning, magic and mystery.
MEANING, MAGIC & MYSTERY…
Just as technology and scientific advances have changed every aspect of our daily lives, it has also altered what type of jewelry and gemstones are available to us.
Fine jewelry enhances how we look and feel and it all begins with the allure of gemstones. While rarity is a component of the pricing of gemstones, the allure or love of gemstones is primarily about their Beauty, Sparkle and Color …created by Mother Nature. Technology, however, is altering the supply and color of gemstones, in addition to maybe altering our definition of a “Gemstone”.
Gemstones & Beauty
Gemstones/rocks too soft to be cut or faceted into gemstones (in the not so distant past) are now heavily marketed and popular with many women. For example: Precious Gemstones (i.e. Diamonds, Sapphires & Rubies) are still treasured, but the category of Semi-Precious gemstones has expanded to include stones like “Drusy” (a type of quartz that to me, sounds like one of Snow White’s Seven Dwarfs) and “Chrome Diopside” (Doesn’t that sound like a dangerous chemical?). So, there are many beautiful gemstones, not as durable and not as sparkling as a Diamond, for example,…but it terms of beauty, well beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
