December Dazzle!

DECEMBER BIRTHSTONES

The two birthstones associated with December are Tanzanite and Turquoise.

Tanzanite

Discovered in the late 1960s in Tanzania, and found exclusively in this tiny area of the world, tanzanite exhibits a rich violet-blue color for which the gemstone is treasured; often it is heat-treated to achieve this color.  Colors range from blue to purple, and tanzanites that are medium dark in tone, vivid in saturation, and slightly violet blue command premium prices.  As tanzanite can be less expensive than sapphire, it often was purchased as an alternative.  However, it has increased in popularity and now is valued more for its own beauty and brilliance than as a sapphire substitute.

Turquoise

The name turquoise, from the French expression Pierre tourques or Turkish stone, originated in the thirteenth century and describes one of the oldest known gemstones. Turquoise varies in color from greenish blue, through robin’s egg-blue, to sky blue shades and its transparency ranges from translucent  to opaque. Turquoise is plentiful and is available in a wide range of sizes. It is most often used for beads, cabochons, carvings, and inlays. Although its popularity fluctuates in fashion, it is a perennial favorite in the American Southwest.

Alexandrites:

Alexandrites are a very rare making hard to come by, an expensive stone and most are synthetic. The reason Avianti do not use Alexandrires, is due to those reasons and we do not want to sell cheap and fake stones.

There is one question many people ask: “Why do Alexandrites appear to hange color in the sunlight vs the artificial light?”

Here are the 3 main lights with the effects on the gems.

Candlelight:

The radiant lighting contains a higher balance of red light and the Alexandrite appears red to a person’s eye.

Mixed Light:

Alexandrite effects the aspect of an observed color change from a greenish hue to a reddish with a change in source illumination.

Daylight:

Daylight contains high proportions of blue and green light and the stone appears green to the human eye.

Custom Designed Emerald Earrings with Diamonds!

Avianti Jewelry has been known for their handmade jewelry and antique styled jewelry, but something we take pride in is going the extra mile for our clients who want something made special for them.

We are specialized to making custom stunning engagement rings, unique pendants and necklaces, and lovely earrings.

This is the journey of a client’s new and beautiful Emerald earrings.

The first thing our jeweler did was, create the flawless Gold Earring setting and set in the accent Diamonds, giving it a real shine!

Once that is done, he connected the gold setting together, getting it ready for the center stones.

After adding a couple more Diamonds to the earring set, he added the stunning Pear cut Emerald.

And the second one…

The process of creating an earring pair like this, is art. The tools are the stones and the Gold, Diamonds and colorful stones to compliment the canvas – the lucky person who wears this masterpiece.

At Avianti Jewelry, we strive to make the customer happy. This isn’t just a business, it’s a passion. There is nothing like seeing someone’s face light up knowing it’s exactly what they wanted.
