Thursday, October 8th, 2015

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.

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.

Fancy Colored Diamonds: The “It” Gems

Monday, December 15th, 2014

2014, diamond and jewelry gallery, pic, yellow diamond rectangle ring

Beautifully brilliant diamonds form naturally, over millions of years, in every color of the most vibrantly hued rainbow. But, when it comes to popularity, the stones that often get the most attention are usually white diamonds – those with no color at all. That may be changing. Fast.

Fancy Colored Diamonds – “The It Gems”

Fancy colored diamonds are fast becoming the new “it gems,” sought after not only for their intensely unusual beauty, but also for their extreme rarity. So, what are they and why are they so rare?

Even in the lightest tones and low saturation, any stone showing color in what’s called the face-up position qualifies as a fancy color diamond. Only one in every 10,000 diamonds possesses natural color vibrant enough to be classified as fancy color diamonds.

The Bold and The Beautiful

Offered up in blues, greens, pinks, oranges, reds and yellows – bold and beautiful fancy colored gems are not at all for fine jewelry wallflowers.

More often than not, these richly hued gems are purchased and appreciated for their intensity and distribution of color. Different than when shopping for a white or colorless diamond, considerations such as cut and clarity are less important when purchasing a fancy color diamond. In this market, the bolder and more intensely colored the stone is, the more valuable it is.

More and more purchasers are looking to add depth to the color palette of their jewelry collection. And retailers and auctioneers are paying attention, adding a vibrant range of hued diamonds to their offerings.

Sky Is The Limit

While all diamonds are beautiful, naturally occurring fancy colored diamonds are much more rare, and therefore, much more expensive. And for traders, they’re getting harder and harder to find.

All these factors – the combination of their rarity in nature and dissipation in sourcing – eventually add up, making fancy coloreds much more costly than their blanche counterparts. Some experts quote the sought after gems as being 10 to 20 times the price of a similar quality white diamond.

For those looking to shave down the price of a colored diamond, also available are beautifully hued diamonds that originate from treatments as opposed to nature. These enhanced colored diamonds are often priced as much as ten times lower than those that occur naturally.

Rock Stars

While their popularity and price have increased recently, interest in the showy stones is nothing new. There are many, but here are a few classic examples of fancy colored diamonds that have achieved “Rock Star” status:

The Classic Hope Diamond

One of the largest dark blue diamonds ever found, the Hope Diamond holds court as fine jewelry royalty. The 45.52 carat diamond is housed at the Harry Winston Gallery of the Smithsonian’s Geology, Gems and Minerals exhibition.

In the pendant surrounding the Hope Diamond are 16 white diamonds, both pear-shapes and cushion cuts. The necklace chain contains 45 white diamonds. It is perhaps the most visited museum object in the world.

Epic A-List

In November 2013, Christie’s Geneva sold a 14.82 carat, pear-shaped, vivid orange diamond for $35,540,612. The sale of the show-stopping piece set a world record price for an orange diamond.

Our Featured Piece

You can achieve your own Rock Star status by adding a beautiful, fancy colored diamond to your fine jewelry collection. Featured exclusively at the Studio City, California, showroom of the Diamond & Jewelry Gallery, this stunning18k white gold ring with 22k setting features a brilliant fancy yellow rectangle cut diamond surrounded by dozens of complimentary round cut yellow diamonds.

At the Diamond & Jewelry Gallery, we carry the largest selection of precious colored stones and EGL & GIA certified diamonds and jewelry anywhere – often more than 50% to 70% below retail.

Stop in to see this beautiful, yellow diamond show stopper or any of thousands of other offerings. And get ready to steal the show!
