Engagement Ring with a Sapphire

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

What do you think about using sapphire for an engagement ring-Yes or No?

First of all, sapphire occurs in all colors (when it is red it is ruby).  Technically sapphire is a variety of corundum and ruby is the red variety of corundum.  Sapphire is all of the other colors (other than red) of corundum.

Sapphire is hard (on s scale of 1 to 10, sapphire ranks a 9) and hardness refers to it’s resistance to scratching and thus it’s durability.

So if you want an alternative to diamond, then sapphire is a good consideration.  Customers can choose from genuine sapphires in many colors in our store.  We have a rainbow of sapphire colors in various yellows, oranges, greens, violets, blues and pinks.

Here are a few pictures of sapphire in rings that would work for an engagement ring.  What do you think of these?

chlorine dangerous for your jewelry

Chlorine is Dangerous for Your Jewelry

By | Blog | No Comments

Pool and Hot Tub alert! Chlorine is bad for your gold and silver jewelry!

Chlorine and chlorine-like-chemicals such as bromine attack the alloys used in karat gold, leaving the metal brittle and thus susceptible to breaking in areas that have been stressed, such as the bend in a prong or stretched segment of a shank.

Chlorine has an oxidizing effect on silver causing it to turn black.

So remove your jewelry and put it in a safe place to prevent these problems.

Then have a great pool party!
