8 Great Things About Fall

Wear the colors of fall with golden citrine earrings from Amidon.



Fall has officially fallen. Instead of missing the warm days of summer, it’s time to look ahead and anticipate the chillier pleasures of fall. So let’s turn our attention to the fun and the colors of turning leaves. Hey, they look kind of like rubies, citrine and topaz!


Time to get cozy.

Shake out your sweaters, find your favorite gloves, drape a soft scarf around your neck. Boot weather is here! If you have a fireplace in your house, stock up on wood.


The raking workout.

Who needs the gym when your yard is full of leaves? Get out your rake and feel your shoulders getting stronger. Plus you get that wholesome rosy glow on your cheeks from exercising in the cool air.


Apples! Pears!

It’s harvest time. Celebrate with fresh apples, pear sauce, or a mug of hot cider. Don’t forget the cinnamon and cloves.


Smells of autumn.

The crisp air and turning leaves bring along that special fall smell. It’s a mixture of leaves, rain and wood smoke. Breathe it in.


As the leaves turn red, wear this sparkling red garnet ring from Amidon.



Family times.

As we enter fall, the holiday season draws near. Think about the fun things you can do to celebrate with your special people, be they family or friends.


Goodwill towards humankind.

Maybe this is the year you’ll volunteer to serve a Thanksgiving meal to the needy, or organize a gift drive for a battered women’s shelter. Everybody can find somebody less fortunate to help. Sharing your love just makes your love grow bigger.



Whether you celebrate Halloween or harvest festival, it’s a time of year for games, treats and costumes. Explore your alter ego. Bob for apples. Play games at a harvest festival. Get lost in a corn maze.


Celebrate fall colors with rubies.



Letting Go.

As the leaves fall from the trees, maybe you can let go of a few things, too. Do you have too much stuff in your house? Donate useful goods to your favorite charity. Do you have negative patterns in your life that no longer serve you? Animosity or resentments towards people? Let that fall away, too, so you can lighten your heart and let more love and happiness in.

Garnets – Facts and Folklore of January’s Birthstone

Birthstones are as unique as the people who wear them. Officially recognized as January’s birthstone, the Garnet is no exception. When you shop from Amidon Jewelers for your Garnet jewelry, not only do you have a beautiful selection to choose from, but we’re as equally excited to provide you with some of the history and folklore associated with this gorgeous gemstone.

Named because of their similar shape, size and color to the seeds of a pomegranate, Garnet comes from the Latin word, “granatus”, meaning grain. Despite their similiarity to these seeds, however, you do not want to mistakenly find one between your teeth, as they range between 7.0 and 7.5 on Mohs Scale of Hardness. In comparison, Diamonds, the hardest gemstone, score a 10.0 on the Mohs Scale.

Found and mined in locations around the world including Australia, Brazil, Scotland and the United States, Garnets have been found in various colors besides red, which is the most common. Some of the ther colors include purple (Rhodolite), orange (Hessonite), green (Tsavorite), yellow, brown and black.

Garnets are attributed with having a number of healing and protective qualities. Historically, medicine men and healers have associated garnets with helping ease or remove the symptoms of arthritis, varicose veins and thyroid conditions. In addition, worn on a chain around the neck, they were believed to be able to regulate the heart and blood flow.

Does your marriage need an extra spark? Associated with the 2nd and 6th wedding anniversaries, Garnets were also believed to have a positive impact on intimacy issues.

Along with their healing qualities, Garnets are also thought to provide strength and protection. A business owner can place several Garnets on their desk which are believed to bring prosperity, and a garnet under your pillow is thought to be a cure for depression. Before embarking on a long journey, and long before the days of email and cellphones, friends would exchange Garnets to express their well wishes as well as their desire to be together again.
