Birthstones for the Birthday Queen
Birthstones and birthstone jewelry have long been traditional gifts — with the exception of April (diamonds), the other eleven months use colored gemstones to signify the month in which you were born. Depending on your birth month, you may even have multiple options for stones or gemstones that come in a variety of colors! September's sapphires aren't limited to blue but also come in pink, yellow, chocolate, and even black. June has two gemstone options — alexandrite and moonstone. Even though some gemstones like garnets (January) and topaz (December) are commonly seen in just a few shades, they actually come in many hues. Have fun with your jeweler choosing your favorite stone for the most special birthstone jewelry.
Blues in All Hues
Most gemstones occur naturally in more than one color; the most common shade may only be the easiest to source. Sapphires, tourmalines, and topaz come in a rainbow of colors. Amethyst, aquamarine, emeralds, and many others have different levels of saturation, from very light to rich, dark shades. If you're not totally in love with the colors of a stone but want the symbolism and significance of that particular gemstone, ask your jeweler if they can order additional colors or hues. The beauty of shopping at Grono and Christie Jewelers is that no matter your color preference, there's a piece of gemstone jewelry for you.
A Special Anniversary
You've likely heard of Gold, Silver, and Ruby anniversaries, but there's actually a particular present for each anniversary. Just like birthstones go with the months, each anniversary year has a different gemstone, color, or metal associated with it. For example, a fourth anniversary gift is associated with the color blue, and blue topaz is the traditional gemstone. Blue topaz is a gemstone that comes in a spectrum of blue hues, ranging from a clear, light robin's egg blue to a darker, more lapis-like color. The sentiment of a blue topaz is very sweet, symbolizing romance, affection, and love. Look for gemstone jewelry associated with your anniversary year for a sweet gift that they'll always remember.
Something For Everyone
Gemstone jewelry is perfect for anyone and everyone: the variety of stones at different price points makes gemstone necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets accessible and endlessly unique. If your loved one has been asking for something beautiful, talk to your jeweler about gemstone jewelry. If you're seeking a certain color, symbolism, or quality, they can point you in the right direction. Custom jewelry with gemstones is a great option to explore to fulfill a vision and get exactly what you want in the perfect color and shape. Don't be afraid to be yourself and go against the current to make all your fine jewelry dreams come true.
