Welcome to Our Jewelry Bracelets
Have you ever wondered what color looks best on you? Maybe you have the considered this concept for clothing but the same idea applies to jewelry. To ensure bracelet durability, there is one very important factor many people overlook — length. When a link-style bracelet is too long, iti s more easily stretched over time. In many cases, the piece becomes fragile or expensive to repair. The prefect bracelet length is the depth of a finger: place one finger between your skin and the fastened bracelet and you’ll have the perfect length for you. Properly fitting oval shaped bangles and cuffs should not be able to turn around the wrist.
Nearly every continent in the world produces gemstones and every gemstone has a story. Some are ancient, while others are based on legend and folklore. But all gemstones have a scientific story. Why is an aquamarine blue or an emerald green? The answer involves mineral impurities like iron, which changes the color of beryl to blue. Blue beryl is better known as Aquamarine. Chromium in beryl produces the rich green color of emerald.
Quartz is one of the most common minerals on earth. It occurs in measurable quantities in almost every type of rock exposed at the earth’s surface. Citrine is yellow quartz, and Amethyst (violet colored quartz) is the most prized of all quartz varieties.
A gemstone’s value is based on its unique scientific story. For example, while quartz is one of the most common minerals, gem quartz occurs only in limited geological environments. The more exceptional the occurrence of trace impurities, the more valued the gem becomes.
Pearls are one of the few “gemstones” that come from a living organism. Like other gemstones, pearls can be found all over the globe and are available in all sizes and shapes. The finest are blemish-free and so smooth, you can see your reflection on their surface. A few exceptions to this rule include baroque pearls, which are prized for their bumpy complexion.
