NOVEMBER - CHILLY BUT SUNNY

NOVEMBER - CHILLY BUT SUNNY
Before the 20th century, all gems in the brown, orange, and yellow colour range were called topaz. Modern gemology was only recognized as a science in the 1930s. Today we know that topaz and brown quartz are actually two different gemstones. Citrine  is less likely to be confused with Topaz today, but it does happen.

NOT A WAITRESS

NOT A WAITRESS
Ever have that feeling when you're wearing black and white ( I frequently do ), that whilst it's timeless and classic, it's also occasionally, boring? Spice up that look with a bold necklace in a punchy colour. Put on that red lip, keep everything else neutral and you're out the door.

MARCH - ALLURING AQUAMARINE

MARCH - ALLURING AQUAMARINE
Nearly all Aquamarines on the market have been heat treated to enhance the colour. In meeting with the consumer preference for aquamarines in deep blue, the stones are heated near 800 degrees Fahrenheit, which causes the blue colour to emerge and the yellow/green tones to disappear. As a gemstone, they work equally beautifully set in silver or gold. Many aquamarine stones are virtually free of inclusions and their lustre is vitreous or glass-like.

A LITTLE BIT OF CANDY........

A LITTLE BIT OF CANDY........
There are a few jewellery blogs that I follow, because in addition to what I do here with Lustre, I must confess, I love ALL jewellery. Fine, fun, vintage, semi precious, ALL of it. And the funny thing is, the older I get, the less I covet it to actually own. Looking at it is almost as much pleasure most of the time.
