GRAB THE RAINBOW: OPAL IS THE OCTOBER BIRTHSTONE

Fall signifies its arrival with a change in the color of leaves and foliage – making for rich displays of color. So, is the case for the Opal – the gemstone of those with fall birthdays in the month of October.

Beautiful Opals come in a varied “rainbow” of colors, from milky white to mysterious, fire-streaked blue and black stones. The Black Opal is most rare –often rivalling the diamond in pricing.  Next in importance is White Opal, which is characterized by a lighter body color such as white, yellow or cream in addition to unique color plays. Other types of sought after stones include the Fire Opal, or Mexican Fire Opal, which is a transparent to translucent deep orange-red stone. Fire Opal can also feature unusual plays of color – a rarity that when it occurs, results in the stone being called a Precious Fire Opal.

A Black Opal Stone

The name opal is derived from the Greek word Opallos, which means “to see a change (of color).” It is often associated faithfulness, protection and loyalty. The opal stone is also believed to enhance one’s vision as well as creativity.

The alluring Opal is most often used as a stunning center stone for rings, pendants and cabochons.

September Birthstone: Precious Blue Sapphire

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

2015, Diamond and Jewelry Gallery, pic, loose sapphire

The richly blue Sapphire is the birthstone of those fortunate enough to be born in September. Giving gifts of jewelry in signature birthstone gems is an age old tradition. Have you ever wondered when it started?

As far as we can tell, the first century Jewish historian Josephus introduced the idea of an association between the twelve stones in Aaron’s breastplate and the twelve months of the year and their zodiac signs. Also, in the eighth and ninth century, Christian religious documents associating a particular gemstone with an apostle were written as a nod to the book of Revelation reference that “their name would be inscribed on the Foundation Stones, and his virtue.” Eventually, it became common to keep twelve stones and wear one a month. The tradition of wearing only a single birthstone, as is commonly done today, is thought to be only a few centuries old, and now is more a matter of aesthetics as opposed to anything with religious overtones.

No matter your birthstone, whether it’s a diamond, a pearl or an amethyst – be sure to wear it with pride, flair and style. Here’s a bit about the September birthstone – beautifully intense Sapphire.

SAPPHIRE – ONE OF THE “PRECIOUS FOUR”

Magnificent sapphire gemstones are most prized for their beautiful hues of dark blue. However, this exquisite stone comes in a rainbow of other colors, including yellow, pink, orange and purple. The lovely blue color of the sapphire is associated with feelings of sympathy and harmony, friendship and loyalty. Sapphires are one of the “precious four,” a set of highly valuable gemstones that includes diamonds, rubies and emeralds.

AUGUST BIRTHSTONES: The Quiet Beauties

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

2015, Diamond and Jewelry Gallery, August Peridot, Tami Slogan

Many people today collect pieces of jewelry in the stone of their birth month — a set of gems commonly referred to as “birthstones.” In popular culture, men and women alike wear signature birthstone jewelry with a degree of sentimentality and pride. Birthstone jewels are often given as presents to children; or as gifts to spouses or parents to commemorate milestone events.

Wearing birthstone jewelry can be as creative and unique as its wearer. For example, a thoughtful husband might gift his wife a necklace or pendant featuring the birthstone of each member of their growing family. Or, for a fun way to brag about their brood, some mothers have custom eternity rings created in the birthstone of each new child and then stack them for an elegantly colorful look.

For those with delightful Summer birthdays or milestone events in August, the birthstone of the month is Peridot. Here’s a little bit about this quiet and often under-appreciated beauty.

PERIDOT: The modern stone for August is the lovely peridot, a gemstone that ranges in color from yellowish green to brown. Arguably, the most popular peridots are those that present in bright, fresh lime greens and olive toned variations. Perhaps inspired by peridot’s calming color, the stone’s properties are thought to provide benefits including healing, stress reduction, anti-aging and protection.

Another August stone is SARDONYX. Though it is not as widely known or recognized, it is actually the traditional stone for August. Sardonyx is an agate ribboned with unusual red, orange, brown and white stripes. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans believed sardonyx would bring courage and victory to the wearer.

THE ENVIABLE EMERALD

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

2014, diamond and jewelry gallery, pic, emerald double drape necklace, approved

For those lucky enough to be born in May, the envy-inspiring emerald is their official birthstone. However, stunning emeralds are not just for May babies. Throughout history, this precious green gemstone has been sought by both royals and common folk, alike. In fact, the deep and richly-colored green beauties have reigned as one of the world’s most desirable gemstones for centuries.

The emerald is considered the most precious and valuable gem of the beryl family of stones. For admirers of the storied gem, the allure of the emerald is all about the color, color, color. Emeralds are prized – and often revered – for their intensely brilliant green color ranging in hues from yellow greens to bluish greens to intense dark greens. The stones have often thought to be “magical” because of their tendency toward an almost mystical radiance. The deep green glimmer of the emerald is unmatched in the world of gemstones and is considered among the “precious four,” a short list of high-end gemstones that also includes the diamond, rubies and sapphires.

The Meaning of Emeralds

The name comes from the old French word ‘esmeralde,’ which is a derivative of the Greek word ‘smaragdos,’ simply meaning ‘green stone.’ The rich and magnificent green of the emerald has been thought to convey harmony, nature, beauty and love. It is often associated with Springtime, resurgence and re-growth.

Where To Find Beautiful Emeralds

Colombia is the most widely known source for the highly desirable dark green emerald, although the stones can be found in and mined from many places around the globe including Africa and across Europe. However, probably the oldest known emerald finds were once made near the Red Sea in Egypt.

Find your own “enviable emerald” much closer to home at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, California. The stunning showroom offers its clients stunning emerald jewelry designed to fit a range of fine jewelry budgets from large to small. Voted “Favorite Jewelry Store” by the Los Angeles Daily News, the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City carries one the largest selections of precious colored stones and EGL & GIA certified diamonds anywhere – often at more than 50-75% below retail. The store also guarantees their stones to be “conflict-free,” which is increasingly important to today’s consumers.

Diamonds… A Girl’s (And Investor’s) Best Friend!

DIAMONDS – THE SPARKLINGAPRIL BIRTHSTONE!

Watch this video! Find L.A ‘s best diamond deals from the industry leader and Diamantaire ” Johnny N” at the diamond and jewelry Gallery Studio

You don’t need a reason to purchase beautiful, high-quality diamonds. Traditionally, you’re already buying them for engagements, weddings, graduations and special occasions. Or, maybe you’re shopping for diamonds just because you love their fiery brilliance.

But just in case you need a little help justifying your next diamond purchase, how about trying this on for size? Financial reports are now showing that diamonds (and gold) are actually really good investments – often yielding even better returns than the traditional “market.” With that in mind, you can crank up some major support for your next diamond purchase by thinking of it – and referring to it – as your next “investment.” Here’s why…

Recent studies indicate that high-quality diamond purchases rack up profits that are just as stunning as their inevitable sparkle. According to recent 2015 Rapaport Diamond Statistics Report that tracked return on investments (ROI) over a ten year period, for every $1000 invested, a 5-carat diamond purchased in 2005 showed a profit of more than $1300, whereas “market” investments (Dow Jones and NASDAQ) showed much more modest profits, at $1210 and $674, respectively. In the same study, gold performed even better. For the same period, for every $1000 invested, gold demonstrated an actual profit of more than $1699.

With rock solid numbers like those, it proves that diamonds and gold really can be a girl’s (and an investor’s) best friend!

Shop with the award-winning Diamantaires and designers at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City for your next fine jewelry “investment.” As Direct Diamond Importers, the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City ranks as L.A.’s #1 Diamond Source, offering one of the largest selections of GIA & EGL diamonds for 50-75% below retail. Or, increase your investing power by taking advantage of the value in diamonds you already own by trading them in for larger or higher quality stones.
