December 2007 – Rocks Happen, But Crystals and Gemstones are Freaks

December 1, 2007

We often hear the terms “rock,” “crystal,” and “gemstone” used interchangeably, but it’s important to note their differences in the context of jewelry, so you can ascertain the value of what your buying, or appreciate what you’re receiving when accepting a gift. So, this month, CED offers a little “Geology 101” for you educated consumers out there.

November 2007 – A Sunny Disposition For This Month’s Birthstone

November 1, 2007

As temperatures drop during these crisp November days, we’ve chosen to feature one of three of this month’s traditional birthstones, the citrine, which is more than appropriate. Its warm hues complement the season’s color schemes with a sunny brightness that’s alluring for year-round wear as well.

September 2007 – Interview With a Sapphire

September 1, 2007

Sapphires… not just blue… not just September’s birthstone… not just the symbolic gemstone for the fifth and 45th wedding anniversaries. And thanks to the late Princess Diana’s choice of an 18-carat sapphire engagement ring following her betrothal to Prince Charles in 1981, the sapphire made a steadfast comeback as a popular alternative to the diamond engagement ring.
