Turquoise Jewelry Care

Turquoise comes to us from the ancient world, prized among the Persian and Native American civilizations. This gemstone is mined in only a few areas of the world such as the Middle East and the American Southwest.





Varying in color from shades of blue to hues of green, this gemstone is very desirable in today's world of jewelry.







Popularity peaked in the 1970's and is again enjoying a resurgence. Mixing metals such as gold or sterling silver with the stones creates stunning effects.







Turquoise is very soft so take care of your jewelry made with it to prevent it from scratches. Only use water to clean it as the gemstone is porous and will absorb oils and cleaners.

Jewelry made with turquoise and silver or gold looks great with a tan in the summer, but it's not suggested to wear it at the beach! Wait until later when you're going out to dinner and bask in the glow of turquoise and tan!
Turquoise remains an extremely important gemstone among Native Americans, and is by far the most popular gemstone in that culture. - See more at: http://www.minerals.net/gemstone/turquoise_gemstone.aspx#sthash.UM9Rz10Q.dpuf

Wrap It Up!

inhonorofdesign.blogspot.com



With all the cold weather we've had here in New York, the focus has been on staying warm when we go out. Of course, down coats are fabulous but for the the fashion forward, consider wraps.
Listotic.com


Warm woolens and knits can be wrapped around bodies, heads, and necks.









And when you get inside, you can still be wrapped in one of our favorites - wrap bracelets! You know Alex and Ani for sure - infinity, feather, and color wrap bracelets are some popular ones.





One of the newer additions to the wrap bracelet grouping is Endless Jewelry. Cool and bright colors in leather bracelets come in single, double, and triple wraps. Add charms as you like from a huge variety for your own unique wrapping.





So stay warm and in style this winter in wraps!

The Buzz on Bugs



Summer’s almost here and the time is right for the buzzing of insects. The buzz is about wearing these creatures as jewelry. Well, not the actual insects, although ants in amber are fascinating. We’re talking about dragonflies, bees, butterflies, and ladybugs in fine jewelry and recyclable metal.

You can find cute charms on single bangle bracelets from Alex and Ani with bees and butterflies for example. 



LeStage has a sterling silver convertible bracelet with a dragonfly clasp for one.



Lori Bonn carries slide charms with the whimsical names of 
“jitterbug”, “luck be a lady”, and “outathecocoon” for your bracelets.

Wedding Trends 2014 - Jeweled Necklines



Wedding trends like the woodland theme and bright accent colors are highlights of 2014. Jeweled necklines on wedding gowns are another popular trend according to The Knot. Sheer illusion bordered by rhinestones or crystals is the look.

A great benefit is you get to wear the necklace again on many occasions unlike a jeweled neckline wedding dress.
