BIRTHSTONE OF THE MONTH
July birthday people, we owe you an apology. The gallery didn’t organize as well as usual around the month’s birthstone. However, we have several pairs of faceted droplets with faceted rubies at the bottom. Particularly prized among people of the Far East, the ruby is replete with stories of magic and mystery and in literature and love.
August birthday people, we have you covered. Our supply of peridot rondelles is good. We have teamed them with turquoise, faceted crystal and alone on sterling silver. Egyptians called peridot the “gem of the sun” and adorned its rulers with the largest and most rare specimens, most of which they mined on one island in the Red Sea.
So happy birthday to the July- and August-born. May you celebrate again and again!
