Cindy Edelstein Memorial Auction

I am helping to raise donations for the Cindy Edelstein Memorial. She helped many jewelry designers promote their business for decades. Cindy —affectionately known by many as the “biz guru”’—began her career in the jewelry industry as a fashion editor at JCKmagazine. This brought her in contact with jewelry designers and their work, and she soon came to realize that working with them [...]

Tanzanite is December's Birthstone

Tanzanite is actually a blue to violet to bluish purple variety of zoisite. Usually Tanzanite [...]

We were watching the cooking channel the other day and learned that President Lincoln declared the fourth Thursday of every November as Thanksgiving day. That was in 1863, and it remained that [...]

If Its November it Must be Citrine

I love Fall colors: turning leaves and pumpkins – orange and brown hues. It also reminds me of the deep Citrine color that is November’s birthstone! Citrine is a type of quartz, pale yellow to brownish orange.  Rare in nature, its color comes from iron and is created by treating amethyst (or in some places smoky quartz) with heat. Most [...]

Tourmaline, October's Other Birthstone

Another birthstone for October is Tourmaline. This is one of my favorite stones in my collection. Tourmaline comes in a wide variety of colors. The reasons for the colors are many, but iron helps to create greens and blues while manganese produces reds and pinks. Radiation, natural or otherwise, often creates pinks and yellows. Rubellite is pink or various [...]
