When your anniversary gemstone is also your birthstone

We just celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary, and although it’s an odd number there is actually a corresponding gem to commemorate the 16th year…peridot.

I got excited because this is also my birthstone (August). It must mean something special when the two coincide, just like your golden birthday when someone turns the age of their birth day (e.g., someone

born on the 25th of the month turns 25).  Peridot is a symbol of undying love and devotion. It’s also a beautiful shade of green.

A happy marriage is one of the most beautiful treasures in life. As the years pass, you can celebrate your union with gifts that outlast the passing of time. And jewelry set with the perfect wedding anniversary gemstone is the perfect choice for these special occasions!

For your reference, below is a list of gems for wedding anniversaries.

Diamonds and GemstonesRingsEarrings
PURPLE has ancient associations with power and royalty.  It evokes artistic expression, mystery and the cosmos.  Also it’s 2018 Pantone® Color of the Year.
“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination…PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple takes our awareness and potential to a higher level,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
“From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection…it lights the way to what is yet to come.” Citing musical icons Prince, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix, Pantone noted that a deep purple like Ultra Violet has “long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance.”
Some of our favorite purple colored gemstones include: Amethyst, Tanzanite and even Purple color enhanced Diamonds.

Gift idea #7 . . . a “push” present for that special mom-to-be

Do you know someone who is expecting soon, or has recently given birth?

Consider a Push Present.

The popularity of the push present has soared recently. So what exactly is it?

Wikipedia defines “push present” as a gift a partner gives to the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child. In practice the present may be given before or after the birth, or even in the delivery room.

A recent survey of over 30,000 respondents by BabyCenter found that 38% of new mothers received a push present, and 55% of pregnant mothers wanted one, though fewer thought it was actually expected. About 40% of both groups said the baby itself was already a present and did not wish an additional reward.

It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the new mom.

Some ideas for push gifts include jewelry with the gemstone of the month the baby is due, a gold, silver or platinum disk with names, initials or birthstone. A delicate diamond pendant, pearl necklace or earrings.

The trend has generated a backlash, as some couples dislike the implicit materialism of push presents, and would prefer increased help in chores or baby care, or save the money for the child’s education. Anyway you decide to help the new mom, she deserves some extra love and attention.


According to etiquette expert Pamela Holland, there are no set guidelines for push presents. “The standard is that there is no standard,” she said. “It does make sense to have etiquette around wedding or baby shower gifts because you’re inviting other people into it. But this is far too intimate to have a rule.” In general it is the woman who lets her man know about push presents, not the other way around, although there can be peer pressure from friends to buy one on either the man or the woman.

Diamonds were the most popular gift in the form of an eternity ring, but also tablet computers, charm bracelets and designer watches and handbags were also popular gifts to celebrate a new arrival.

Totally Ear-resistible!

We had a delightful visit from 3 little girls–best friends who wanted to get their ear pierced together. Our store was bursting with excitement and giggles as they each took the big step into the world of wearing cute and fashionable earrings.

They decided that they wanted to match, choosing the same sparkly blue for their first pair of  earrings.

It was great to be part of their special day!

Getting your ear pierced is a rite of passage and what a wonderful way to celebrate by being surrounded by friends and family . . . ear-resistible!

Engagment Rings with a Splash of Color

color engagment rings

Although it’s a tradition to wear a Diamond Engagement Ring, many are gravitating toward rings with a pop of color.

It’s a perfect way to show your personality. Whether you choose to wear a pink Diamond, colored Sapphire or glistening Emerald– any of these would surely make any bride-to-be smile.

Adding energetic hues gives Engagement Rings a fresh, exciting look.

For your center stone, try a Ruby, Tanzanite, or Tourmaline, and tell the world that you have an independent, fashion-forward sensibility; and surrounding your colorful center stone with sparkling diamonds adds vibrancy.

Stop by The Gold Market to consider some of your favorite colored-stone styles, and look for our next blog about the many different colored Diamonds.
