Happy Holidays!

As we close 2021 Dean and I would like to say Happy Holidays to you and yours. 

Here are some interesting December jewelry facts I thought I would share…

Most couples get engaged in the month of December, and as the holiday season approaches jewelry sales are expected to rise. A new survey from brite.co looks at how much Americans are paying for engagement rings, and if they insure their precious purchase.

December is the Month for Turquoise and Tanzanite

December birthstone jewelry set with Turquoise is an ideal personal and meaningful gift for your loved ones with birthdays in December. Or choose a special piece for yourself to wear during the month of December.

The primary December birthstone Turquoise is believed to be associated with success, happiness and prosperity.

Other official and alternative birthstones for December are Tanzanite, Blue Zircon and Blue Topaz. All these sparkling gemstones are shades of beautiful blues, so jewelry with blue beads or glass crystals, also represent December.

Turquoise, Zircon, and Tanzanite are the three birthstones for anyone born in the month of December. Turquoise is a French word meaning Turkish stone. The stone is so called because it has a history that is traceable to a European Country named Turkey.

Turquoise, the “fallen sky stone” hidden in Mother Earth, has been valued by cultures for its beauty and reputed spiritual and life-giving qualities for over 7000 years. It is a true gem of the centuries. Here turquoise is more precious than gold, an enduring expression of Native American Indian culture.”

In the past Turquoise was often used as Amulets or Talisman. Qualities like strength, sensitivity, and protection against evil have also been associated with the Turquoise. Some believed it gives power for wealth and success, while others agreed it fosters peace and good neighborliness.

The German word Zirkon, which in Arabic is Zarqun, and Zargun in Persia, are the well-known origins of Zircon, the second of the December birthstones. This is a gemstone that has purity, integrity, and dignity. The wearer of this birthstone is seen to be protected from illness, ill intentions, and from all sorts of adversaries. Another upside to the birthstone is of its perceived healing properties.

And it is not until recently that Tanzanite was added to the December Birthstones. Tanzania, an African Country, is the place for this gemstone, little wonder about its name “Tanzanite.” This stone is famous too! It shot into the limelight after a diamond-laced Tanzanite pendant was seen in the blockbuster movie “The Titanic.” This iconic piece of jewelry is known as “The Heart of the Ocean Necklace”
