SAVE 20% In-Store & On-Line on DIAMONDS, April's Birthstone!

Diamond is the birthstone for April. Diamond jewelry is also the traditional gift for the 10th, 60th & 75th wedding anniversaries.

Its name in Greek comes from the word adamas, "invincible". It is the hardest known mineral; its Moh hardness number is 10. The diamond has the highest resistance to scratching but a diamond can be scratched by another diamond. And you can shatter a diamond with a hammer.

Grading of the April birthstone is determined by trained specialists using a microscope with a 10x magnification. They follow GIA (Gemological Institute of America) rules to make any determinations as to the carat, clarity, color and cut of any diamond.

The diamond carat is the individual measurement of diamond mass. One full carat "weighs" 200 milligrams.

Clarity is the measure of inclusions, or defects in the diamond. The inclusions could be foreign material or tiny structural cracks which give a cloudy appearance. Of all the diamonds minded today, only 20% have a clarity high enough for use as a gemstone.

Color in a diamond, ranging from D to Z, can either add or subtract from its value. If you own a diamond with a "D" color grading, congratulations! Your diamond has the highest color grading, it is colorless!

The cut of a diamond is not its shape; it is the quality of workmanship. Were the best angles cut to bring out the most brilliance and color for this diamond? Cutting a gem-quality diamond from a rough, takes someone who has this art and science securely under their belt. It may take hours to make the proper calculations for the best usage and perfect cut, and days or even weeks to make calculations for diamonds of exceptional size and/or color.

Finally, shape is a personal consideration when choosing a diamond. A brilliant cut is the ideal shape for a diamond -- to best show it off, but there are many other shapes available in the April birthstone -- princess, cushion, heart and emerald cuts being current favorites.

*Expires 4/30/12. Cannot be combined with other offers. Excludes engagement rings, wedding bands, custom design, special orders, loose diamonds & clearance.

Only One Week Left to SAVE 20% on Aquamarine & Blue Topaz in March!

The gift of Aquamarine symbolizes both safety and security, especially within long standing relationships.

Some people even say that the Aquamarine reawakens love in a tired marriage, so if you want to bring back that spark in your partner's eyes, you might consider this gem as an anniversary gift!

Derived from the Roman word "Aqua," meaning water, and "mare," meaning sea, this pale blue gem does indeed resemble the color of seawater. The ancient Romans believed that the Aquamarine was sacred to Neptune, the god of the sea, having fallen from the jewel boxes of sirens and washed onto shore. Early sailors wore aquamarine talismans, engraved with the likeness of Neptune, as protection against dangers at sea.

The Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family. It is a very hard mineral, making the Aquamarine a durable gemstone for use in jewelry. The largest known deposits are in Brazil, but other sources of Aquamarine are in China, India, Australia, Africa, and the United States.

While Aquamarine is the official birthstone of March, we're extending the 20% discount to Blue Topaz as well because it is a common substitute.

*Expires 3/31/12. Cannot be combined with other offers. Excludes Pandora, website & special orders.

SAVE 20% on February's Birthstone: Amethyst!

The gift of Amethyst -- February's birthstone -- is symbolic of protection and the power to overcome difficulty. It is said to strengthen the bond in a love relationship. Whether or not Amethyst holds such power, it's stunning beauty will certainly make anyone who wears it feel like royalty!

February's purple birthstone has been found among the possessions of royalty throughout the ages. The intense violet hue of Amethyst appealed to early monarchs, perhaps because purple dye was scarce and expensive at one time, and so the color was reserved for the garments of kings and queens.

The ancient Greeks believed that Amethyst held many powers, among them protection against intoxication. In fact, the word Amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethystos," meaning sober. Even today, Amethyst is considered a stabilizing force for those struggling to overcome addictive behaviors.

Receive 20% off any item featuring Amethyst until the end of the month.
Expires 2/29/12. Cannot be combined with other offers. Excludes Pandora, website & special orders.
