At Aloha Estate Jewelry it truly is the case that we have no idea what type of Jewelry we will encounter next. Of late, however, we have begun seeing more and more exceptional pieces of Jewelry with uncommon Gemstones.
When it comes to Precious Stones we typically think of Emerald, Ruby, Diamond, Sapphire and a few others. Semi-Precious Topaz, Amethyst, Citrine, and possibly Tourmaline. But in especially the Semi-Precious there are so many, many other fabulous Gems to be found, and we just wanted to point that out.
There's Tsavorite, and Chrome Diopside having gorgeous, almost neon, shades of deep green; Peridot - the lime-green gemstone and birthstone for August. There's Tourmaline in colors from deep green to bright red; and Labradorite in browns, yellows, reds, and blues. There's Heliodor in its distinct yellowish-green cast. We love the Beryls - such as Precious Beryl and Golden Beryl - same family as Emerald, but in colors of gold, golden green, green, and pink. And let's not forget Apatite and Iolite and their beautiful colors of blue.
Many of these stones are considered "Collector Gems." Collectors such as gemologist, jewelers, and geologist who have a professional appreciation for these gemstones and their color, crystal structures, and polished brilliance. So, if you encounter a gemstone that you don't recognize, take the time to do a little research. Everyone can own the more well-known semi-precious stones. Be the one to own the beautiful but uncommon.
