We have new peach and pink natural morganites in stock! 12x10mm oval, 11x9mm oval, 6x4mm pear and for the very first time, we cut some 3mm rounds

Guess what gemstone this is....?

"Emerald by day, ruby by night,” #alexandrite is well known for displaying one of the most remarkable colour changes in the gem world — green in sunlight and red in incandescent light. However, the modern June birthstone is so rare and expensive few people have seen a natural alexandrite.
Alexandrites have two primary value drivers. First, the closer the colours to pure green and red, the higher the value. Second, the more distinct the colour change, the higher the value. Alexandrites can exhibit everything from 100% to just 5% color change. Thus, the most valuable gems would have a 100% color shift from pure green to pure red. Blue-greens and purplish or brownish reds hold less value.

Drool over this pair of ruby-licious earrings....

[07/01/20]   Ruby is one of the most expensive gems available today, with large rubies being considerably rarer than comparable diamonds. The highest price ever paid for a gemstone on auction on a per carat basis was for a Ruby.

Ruby is the birthstone for those who are born in July, and is used in certain cultures to celebrate a couple's 15th and 40th anniversary.

Touchstone Gems

Emerald, the birthstone of May, carries the rich green color of Spring and radiates a beautiful vivid tone. They are considered to be a symbol of rebirth and love. Emeralds are the rarest gemstones and are typically mined in Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan and Zambia.

American Gem Society

Yay, it’s May! For all the May babies, your birth month falls right in the heart of spring, and the emerald is a beautiful gemstone to symbolize and celebrate this month. 💚
