The Month of February!

February…the month of love (Valentine’s Day), the month of honoring the past (Black History Month), and also the month of AMETHYST!

Amethyst is a variety of quartz. Purple has long been the color associated with royalty, so it’s no surprise that amethyst has been such a popular gemstone throughout history. Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty. Great thinkers like Leonardo da Vinci believed that amethyst could dissipate evil thoughts and quicken intelligence. Who couldn’t use a little help in those areas?!?!

New Spring Silver Jewelry!

Stop in soon to check out some of our new sterling silver jewelry like this beautiful Fleur-De-Lis necklace!

The “fleur-de-lis” design has been used in decorative pieces for centuries and literally translates to “lily flower”.

Diamond Contacts Anyone?

Diamond Contacts?

Got your eye on diamonds? How about diamonds on your eye? That’s right, the latest trend in eye-fashion now hitting Bollywood is diamond and gold contact lenses.

As if having the ability to go from brown eyes to blue, or even personifying your inner feline with cat eye contacts wasn’t enough, now anyone can see the world through diamonds and gold – contacts, that is – for a whopping $15K a pair.

The idea to bring the jewelry industry to the eyes of the contact lenses business is that of Chandrashekhar Chawan, optometrist and creator of La Ser eye jewelry line. According to an article on msnbc.com, Chawan’s inspiration for blingy eyewear was cosmetic dentistry – his wife had diamonds planted into her teeth recently.

If you are one of the lucky 3,996 diamond lovers to get your – well, eyes ? on these, not to worry! Although not FDA approved, Chawan says the lenses are safe and comfortable, sitting 6 to 9mm away from the eye. You’ll also get your choice of diamonds set in yellow or white gold.

According to the same article, Chawan predicts a day in which these twinkling contacts replace the need for traditional jewelry. Until then, you can still satisfy your diamond dazzle right here at Jewelry.com.

So the next time you see someone with an extra twinkle in their eye, do a double take because their eyes just might be sparkling with diamonds.
