Birthstone Jewellery…..A welcome gift for that special day
Each person’s birthday is an outstanding day that deserves to be remembered in a unique way. Birthstone jewellery meets that need as each birthday is dedicated exclusively to those born in only one month of the year. For centuries, these colourful gems were believed to reflect personal traits of the celebrant.
March ~ Aquamarine
The name aquamarine is derived from Latin means “seawater”. A member of the beryl gem family, transparent beautiful blue aquamarine offers a tribute to the sea, capturing both its essence and spirit.
April ~ Diamond
This pure white gem is synonymous with love and innocence. Since the ancient times, diamonds symbolized invincibility for those born in April because of their hardness and durability. Diamonds are forever as long as you take good care of them.
May ~ Emerald
Symbolizing love, prosperity and overall happiness, this green gemstone was known as the crowning jewel of Queen Cleopatra from ancient Egyptian times.
Caring for your Gemstones
Bridal jewellery, such as engagement rings and wedding bands are typically worn daily, and can appear like they’ve lost their sparkle if not cleaned on a regular basis. Any lotion, such as hand lotion or suntan lotion can put a film on diamonds and reduce their shininess. Avoid wearing your diamonds when gardening or baking. You can get small particles under your diamond and make them look dull. Avoid Chlorinated pools and hot tubs also. These can affect a diamonds luster and fire.
Cleaning your Jewellery
Be careful using ultrasonic cleaners, as only certain gemstones can handle the ultrasonic vibrations. Diamond cleaners usually contain ammonia. Always check the ingredients before using on your jewellery. Silver jewellery can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth, with or without special silver cleaning solutions. Just make sure you don’t use it on the gemstones.
