Turquoise: The Desert Sky in December
The beautiful blue-green color of Turquoise, the birthstone of December, will transport you somewhere warm in the depths of winter: to tropical seas with its blue-green color and oceanic patterns, or to the clear desert sky above the American Southwest or Persia in its sky-blue variety.
India in Technicolor
Saffron clad holy men. Red-swathed brides. Blushing marigolds. Blue skinned Gods.

Why We Love Colorless Stones
One of the major jewelry trends to look out for in 2023 is simplicity. Elegant, understated jewelry is always in style, but next year will see more people embracing simple sophistication. We’ve been fans of colorless gemstones for a long time. They embody the ethos of understatement with their stark beauty and hidden, subtle complexities. So if you’re looking for colorless gemstones, look no further than diamond, moon quartz, and rock crystal, three striking, and strikingly different, ways to capture that quietly elegant style.
Why We Only Work With Solid Gold?
In order to deliver the most beautiful, durable, and valuable fine jewelry, we use only solid gold in our pieces. We never use gold plating, gold filling, or gold vermeil. But what exactly does all that mean? And why is solid gold the superior choice? Let’s look at the differences between these four types of gold jewelry.
Garnet, the Calming January Birthstone
The name garnet comes from the medieval Latin "granatus", meaning pomegranate, in reference to the similarity in color. Thousands of years ago, red garnet necklaces adorned the necks of Egypt's pharaohs and were entombed with their mummies as prized possessions for the afterlife.
Why Buy 18K Gold?
If 24k gold is so valuable, why don’t we use it in our jewelry? 24k gold is so soft that a piece of pure gold can be altered into different shapes by hand. For us, 18k gold strikes the perfect balance between the high value of 24k gold and the durability of 14k gold, with a color that looks great with just about any gemstone.
Is My Diamond Fake? Eleven Tests You Can Try at Home
Has this ever happened to you? You’ve come into a piece of diamond jewelry, but you’re not exactly sure if it is indeed a diamond. Maybe you inherited a family heirloom, or you purchased a diamond for a suspiciously low price, or someone gave you a gift. You start to wonder what it’s really worth. Is this the real thing? Is there any way to truly know?
Citrine - Power for the Body & Soul
Citrine is a variety of quartz, and quartz has been used in jewelry for thousands of years. The name citrine comes from the French "citron" and Latin "citrus" meaning lemon-colored. It is believed to carry healing properties of the sun, with restorative powers for the body and soul.
The Eye of the Visionary
Sometimes, there are those rare people who are not focused on what is; they are focused on their vision. They are able to see what is yet invisible to others. And that's the point, to not see clearly what is, but rather to see clearly what is possible. Sometimes the person who can see the most clearly is the one we call blind.
The Healing Power of Birthstones
It has long been believed that gemstones are not only objects of beauty but also focal points for powerful energies. Gemstones have the power to heal, the power to protect, and the power to amplify certain positive characteristics and ward off negative ones. Though the list of birthstones we know today was only codified in 1912, the practice of associating a particular gemstone with a particular month is centuries old.

Letters of Love
Only the luckiest find their way to true love. And when they do, the universe amplifies its pulse to let them know that they have indeed got the one to walk the uncertain path of life with; the surge of energy, the blurring of boundaries, the ecstasy of inhaling the brewing silence in the space in between are experiences which cannot be put to words.
