Gems are a masterpiece of nature, but at Jewelry Bench of Carson City, we know it’s the skilled hand of the gem cutter that unleashes their brilliance and beauty. Each gem handles light differently due to the unique optical properties of its crystal structure.
Gems come in virtually every color of the spectrum. For every gem variety, color is the most important factor. Brighter, more vivid colors with a medium tone are the most sought after. However, color preference can also be personal. Just because a color is not the most sought after doesn’t mean it might not be the most beautiful to you.
Jewelry is the perfect gift for recognizing and celebrating special occasions, such as birthdays and anniversaries. A thoughtfully selected gift of jewelry can be passed down and enjoyed through generations.
Birthstones, which make great birthday gifts, serve as reminders of the beauty and mystery of life as well as the unique qualities of the wearer’s birth month. Various lists that associate one or more gemstones with seasons and months have been developed through the centuries.
Classic jewelry, such as a cultured pearl necklace, diamond-stud earrings or a watch, is an excellent choice to commemorate the graduate’s achievements.
Surprise your valentine with jewelry that is heart-shaped and/or contains a red gemstone, such as a ruby or garnet, or an amethyst (February’s gemstone).
For Mom, jewelry with her birthstone or the birthstones of her children is sure to warm her heart. Heart-shaped jewelry also makes a lovely gift for Mom.
Wedding anniversaries are commemorated with materials, such as linen and paper; decorative pieces, such as clocks and pottery; and jewelry that includes gemstones and precious metals. Celebrating anniversaries with jewelry is a time-honored tradition.
