  3. Tourmaline and Opal: October's Birthstones

    October, a turning point of seasons, marks the arrival of two birthstones, tourmaline and opal. Both unique gems offer an incredible array of color and diversity. Tourmaline features a rainbow of colors, and opal has limitless fire offer to indulge in. Both accentuate the beautiful colors of fall and add a glow and beauty unlike any other.

    Tourmaline

    Juleve 2.95 Carat Emerald Cut Pink Tourmaline Surrounded A Halo Of Round Diamonds

    Tourmaline is a powerful gem. Representing love and humanity for centuries, the history behind these incredible jewels is limitless. Legend says that the tourmaline ran along a rainbow collecting all the colors, allowing it to be any color it desires. Incredibly durable, tourmaline figurines made by ancient Chinese, and Indians as ceremonial artifacts are on display around the world. Anyone wearing tourmaline will feel the history emanating from this established and beautiful gem.

    Perfect in almost any setting, tourmaline excels on necklaces and rings. There are even Russian crowns that bear tourmaline gems. Not too showy, this gem is a perfect addition to any outfit. Coming in many colors, and even having the possibility to have a multitude of colors in one gem, tourmaline is a very diverse stone that has the ability to fit any person.

    Opal

    Opal is another adaptable gem. It is known as the Queen of Gems because of it has every other gem color hidden in its depths. Like your fingerprint, no two opals are the same. Each one has designs differing in colors, shape, and pattern. there is an opal for every person. Ranging from bright reds and yellows to soft greens and blues or even having the rainbow in one gem, opal is easily the most diverse gem.

    When placed in rings, an opal's true potential can be unlocked on the finger. You can turn and move the opal to get a wide variety of colors and visual effects. Coveted by many, the opal is a must for your autumn and winter apparel. By far the most individual gem, be sure to choose an opal that accentuates and works with you.

  4. How to Plan Your Perfect Holiday Proposal Now

    This stylish ring features a shank lined with round sparkling diamonds that surrounds the pear shaped diamond cluster center set in high polished 14k white gold.

    Are you planning a holiday proposal around Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, or another end-of-year holiday? Full of family, friends, and festivities, the holiday season is already a wonderful time of year, and a surprise proposal just adds the romance!

    Here are our tips for getting a head start on your holiday proposal:

    1.     Find her engagement ring style.

    Look at the jewelry she already wears. Does she wear minimal jewelry, or does she layer on her favorite pieces? Does she love the simplicity of a diamond, or is her jewelry box full of different colors?

    It’s also a great idea to ask trusted friends and family members. It is likely that she has mentioned different styles she prefers— and maybe even some she doesn’t!

    Now is early enough to browse engagement rings together without spoiling the surprise. Try on rings in person, or begin by exploring different rings online.

    1.     Consider a custom designed engagement ring. 

    While your engagement ring turnaround time might be quick, it’s always better to begin your search early in case you want a custom piece or decide to include existing jewelry in your design.

    While you might have an idea of what you like, seeing and feeling different designs might point you in a whole new direction! Anything is possible when you custom design your engagement ring, and the cost is usually less than a designer ring!

    1.     Scope out the specifics. 

    With progress made on the engagement ring, now is a great time to scope out the specifics of your holiday proposal.

    Timing— Does your partner prefer one holiday over another? Are there events over the holiday season where loved ones will be near? Even if you don’t want to propose in front of others, you might enjoy having them near to celebrate with after!

    Location— Consider the weather when planning an end-of-year proposal, and always have a backup for outdoor locations! The Clearwater/Tampa Bay area has beautiful spots ready for a romantic holiday proposal! We recommend looking at Oystercatchers, the dessert room at Bern's, or Clearwater or St. Pete beach! for your perfect proposal.
