Showcasing today awesome handmade silver jewelry collection by Shlomzion. Starting from wax up till polish, including Carving, soldering, stone inlay etc. all her work is done by hand. She uses semi- precious stones and crystals, and you will never find any kind of Animal products like leather or pearl in her Jewelry. Best part is, many of the pieces in her collection are one of a kind and never produced in bulk. In most cases when the idea is in developing stage, she makes several different versions. But most of the items are one of a kind. I specially loved this Art Deco style silver bridge ring from her collection (pic below)

GEMS December – Basic information about Ruby

by JewelStruck on Dec.16, 2009, under GEMS

We got a bit late with out Gemstone Each Month Series (GEMS) 2nd post for December. But better late then never, we did some research as usual :-). And here is some basic information about our December Gemstone Ruby.

In the fascinating world of gemstones, the ruby is the undisputed ruler. Ruby is red corundum, all other color varieties of corundum being referred to as sapphire. Its colour varies from deep cochineal to pale rose red, in some cases with a tinge of purple; the most valued is a pigeon-blood red.

Delicious Large Ruby Red Pear Cut & Aurora Borealis Brooch

The red colour arises from the replacement of a small number of aluminum atoms by chromium atoms (1 in 5,000). High refractivity is characteristic; when cut and polished, ruby is a brilliant stone, but, because it has weak dispersion, it lacks fire.

Usually high temperature heating and controlled cooling is done to clarify the stones, especially by dissolving “silk” (rutile); but it can also improve tone and saturation of color. On exposure to high temperature, ruby becomes green but regains its original colour upon cooling. When subjected to radiant discharge, ruby phosphoresces with a vivid red glow.

Kiss of the Vampire - Ruby Danglers

Ruby is very hard, rubies are rated at 9 on the Mohs’ scale. Compare that to diamonds at 10 and turquoise, which is a relatively soft 5-6.

If you were born in July, ruby is your special birthstone, but ruby jewelry is a universal favorite. We associate the color red with the universal feelings of love and passion, so it’s no wonder that ruby jewelry has always been in demand.

If you love Ruby, or have made something using Ruby or just want to share info on Ruby. We would be very happy to publish it on our blog. Please email us at for the same.

Birthstone Jewelry – The Special One-Of-A-Kind Gift

by Joy Jewlr on Dec.14, 2009, under Astrology jewelry

Diamonds are such an easy choice when deciding on jewelry. It’s classic, it always looks good, and it’s almost always the stone being advertised. But aren’t we forgetting some of the most beautiful stones available? What happened to those beautiful rubies, glowing amethysts and dazzling sapphires … just to name a few.

These colourful palettes of striking gemstones are often overlooked but should be reconsidered because they make perfect presents! Giving a personalized gift with a unique stone that is completely attuned to a special someone is so meaningful. Birthdays are one-of-a-kind. It’s about time we celebrate the inimitability of those we love most by cherishing them with something special!

But these stones are great gifts for any special day! New mothers love to treasure the birth of their child with birthstone jewelry. Grandmothers can keep their family close to her heart at all times with a necklace that showcases the birthstones of all her children and grandchildren. Couples can embrace and cherish the love they share with a matching birthstone couples ring. We love birthstone jewelry for every occasion!

Birthstone jewelry is amazing because of the large range of styles and prices. Online stores tend to have a wide selection to help you pick the perfect piece, which is perfectly personalized for you. We’ve found that has a huge assortment of rings, necklaces, and bracelets that can be customized to express individuality and unique birth months. Their personalized pieces make the perfect presents for mothers, daughters, sons, grandchildren, grandparents or husbands and wives.

Are you looking for pieces of jewelry to add some sparkle to your December? For this month, we think you should try out some jewelry with gorgeous December Zircon! Zircon ranges in so many different shades and hues of blue, from a very light white colour to beautiful icy blues. These stones go beautifully with the natural colours of December, and will brighten up your everyday outfits! Give it a try!!!
