My bracelets are going to New York!
My most popular Black Spinel bracelets are on their way in Swag Bags to the New York Fashion Week. The bags will be handed out in the #GBKNYFW Luxury Gift Lounge to the attending Celebrities and VIP's who visit the lounge before the big event. Really excited. This event takes place September 6-7.
The birthstone for August is Peridot. The "t" is silent and is pronounced "peridoh".
Peridot is a idiochromatic gemstone which means that its color comes from its chemical composition alone, iron. It ranges in color from yellowish-green to olive green. The finest Peridot comes in green with no yellow or brown color.
This gemstone is used as a gift for the 16th wedding anniversay.
It was said to bring happiness and love.
It is said that Cleopatra crushed Peridot crystals to use as eye shadow.
Amethyst is the traditional birthstone of February. It is the beautiful purple color variety of Quartz. It gets its name from the Greek word "ametystos', which means "without intoxication". The old story goes that if you drink from an Amethsyt glass you will not get drunk.
Did you know that Amethyst was once considered equal to Emeralds, Rubies and Sapphires? It was placed in many religious jewelry and crown jewels. It has been used for 1000’s of years.
