December's Birthstone: Blue Topaz

Blue topaz is one of many accepted birthstones--you could also substitute turquoise or tanzanite, but we love the bright, vivid clarity of these lovely stones. These cool, almost transparent stones remind us of a bright December day. Traditionally a symbol of love and affection, we can't think of a more meaningful gift for a December baby.

So crisp and clear--perfect for December!

Blue topaz is available in a variety of hues: Sky Blue, Swiss Blue, and London Blue topaz refer to the depth of color in the stone, London being the darkest. Of course you could also spring for Tanzanite, an increasingly rare stone found only in Tanzania, also an accepted December birthstone. Shop in store or online for your December gifts!

Stunning and substantial Tanzanite.

November's Birthstone: Warm and Lovely Citrine

November birthdays are affiliated with two gems; Citrine and Topaz. Citrine is a warm, almost transparent stone that ranges from dark honey tones to pale light yellows. Its lovely warm color is said to be a gift from the sun revered for its healing powers. 

Amy's selection of Citrine jewelry ranges from warm and earthy to crisp and clean.

Topaz is available in a variety of vibrant colors, like blue, pink, and yellow, but is most desired in its rich orange state. These wild mystic topaz earrings are a great example of the diversity of the stone.

When clear topaz is treated with a thin coating, its magical rainbow properties are enhanced: creating a truly vibrant and unique effect!

Both citrine and topaz are available in many varieties in store and online. Get a gift for a November baby today!
