The temperatures are dropping and holiday displays are popping up everywhere. Yes, December has arrived. Although the days are much shorter, and we rely even more on our morning coffee and mittens, we must continue to look our best. Today, we bring you three stunning pieces to evoke the feeling of a winter wonderland.
Tanzanite is the blue/violet variety of the mineral zoisite. It has a relatively short history, as it was discovered only fifty years ago in northern Tanzania, hence the name. Depending on the orientation of the crystal, you can see different shades of blue, violet, and sometimes, even burgundy.
A tanzanite jewelry piece is a true rarity, as the stone is only found in Tanzania, and is hard to find in nature.
A Blue Winter Morning
Most winters tend to be long, dull, and gray. However, some days, the winter sky changes its tune and brings us a beautiful clear sky to lift up our spirits. Although we still have to reach for our warmest coat, there’s nothing like a bright blue sky to boost our mood.
Looking to recreate that feeling? Check out this beautiful ring from the Rainbow collection. This white gold ring features 0.66cts of round diamonds and 4.58cts of tanzanites, cut in pear shapes. Wear this ring for a holiday soiree or a celebratory brunch with your loved ones.
The Mystique of Blue Sapphire
Sapphire is the third hardest mineral (after moissanites and diamonds), and it has fascinated jewelers for centuries. Sapphires are known for occurring in a wide variety of colors, including yellow, purple, orange, and green. The color of the gem depends on the presence of elements within the rock, such as iron, titanium, copper, and magnesium. However, the blue sapphire is the most abundant gemstone.
There are several theories on the origin of the word sapphire, and it has been traced to Latin, Hebrew, Greek, and even Sanskrit. Sapphires are commonly associated with Saturn and the month of September.
If you’re more attracted to the exuberance of a sapphire gem, these pieces below are perfect for you.
A Ring for Eternal Love
Although we mostly associate the wedding season with summer, winter weddings have a gorgeous charm of their own that’s worthy of the best romance novels. Colder temperatures are perfect for cuddling with your beloved while you profess your eternal love. For couples with a long track record, a gem symbolizing eternal union is perfect.
