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!!!

A Gemstone Each Month Series (GEMS) – Citrine for November

by JewelStruck on Nov.06, 2009, under GEMS

As the name suggest, we have planned to research more – analyze more – collect more and post more about one particular gemstone each month.

You will still find regular interesting posts as before on Jewelry in general, but just more about one particular gemstone each month. All these posts will be categorized as GEMS.

November Gemstone – Citrine

Being one of the three traditional November birthstones, choosing Citrine for GEM of this month was easier.

Citrine is the French word for lemon. This gemstone has a beautiful yellow color. It was believed that is was sent as a gift from the sun. It has been used as an antidote for snake venom. Citrine symbolizes joy and happiness.

Citrine Bracelet

It is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown. It is nearly impossible to tell cut citrine from yellow topaz visibly. Although often cut as a gemstone, citrine is actually somewhat rare in nature. It has ferric impurities and most of citrines in the market are either heat treated amethyst or smoky quartz. One can find natural citrine with low levels of Iron in the mines of Brazil. Spain, Scotland, Argentina, Namibia and Myanmar also have mines with natural deposits.

So this was just to start with Citrine –  The November GEM..  do wait for more posts on Citrine coming up sooner.

If you love citrine, have created something beautiful using citrine, or if you just want to share some info about citrine. Please leave a comment or email us at :-

Obviously if its interesting and we publish it, you will be getting credit for whatever you are sharing :-)

Personalized Jewelry – a definite trend

by SINjewelry on Sep.30, 2009, under Handmade Jewelry, Jewelry Trends

Handmade jewelry is very popular right now. People turn to handcrafted items in times of financial difficulty because of quality. Handcrafted items tend to last longer. The other reason is because handmade jewelry is more likely to be unique. My philosophy has always been to create one-of-a-kind pieces.  I might make three that are similar, but they’re never exactly the same.  Uniqueness is important to my customers.We want our jewels to be all about us.

Personalized jewelry takes this one step further. It IS all about us.  Using silver clay has opened up the personalized market for me.

Mommy Necklace

This necklace is a good example of personalization – you can change the shape, the icon (a heart in this case), the name and the birthstone.  I made this for a friend who recently had her first child and she loved it.  She cried when she opened it and she hasn’t taken it off.  Bar none, this is the best baby gift I’ve ever given.

Since then, this item has become immensely popular.  I also create Mommy Bracelets using sterling alphabet beads and semi-precious gems for birthstones, and Baby Bling, which is a baby bracelet using resin alphabet beads and Swarovski crystals for birthstones.  They are all popular.

Even my father has me making a personalized piece for him – a medi-alert-type bracelet.  The ideas for personalization are endless.
