Pearl

 

ABOUT PEARLS

Pearls are found in a verity and shape and array of mysterious colors. Formed naturally from living mollusk, a pearl is created over time, made of several layers of inner shell material called nacre.

 PEARL HISTORY 

Pearls have been sought after for their beauty for centuries.  Before the creation of cultured pearls in the early 1900′s pearls was often one of the most expensive jewelry available.  Historians recorded that an early roman general financed an entire military campaign from the sale of one of his mother’s single pearl earrings.

Pearls have been around since the beginning of recorded time.  Cleopatra, ancient Romans, and Pharaohs adorned themselves with the gems.

FOLKLORE

Ancient stories in both China and India include tales of the Gods giving a pearl as a gift.   Some Indian cultures believed that pearls were tears from the heavens that fell into the sea and were captured by the shellfish.

Pearls were widely used for medicine in Europe, Persia, and Asia for various despises and insanity. Pearls were believed to bring you power, wealth and longevity.  Evan to this day, Pearls are ground and used for medicine throughout the orient.

CARE FOR YOUR PEARLS

Pearls are not for everyday wear, take care when wearing to protect from scratches and harsh blows. Always put your pearls on last to avoid chemicals such as perfumes and hair sprays. To clean, wipe gently with a moist cloth.  Read more care tips in our blog here.

Our Month at AmidonOur month started off helping select beautiful jewelry to be given as gifts to bridesmaids and to complement gorgeous wedding dresses.  We are glad it is finally feeling more like summer, and for us, wedding season is in full swing.We have welcomed Bobby to our staff, stop in to the Power-house Store and say hello.Have you seen our new selection of promise rings and bridal sets?  We have added several new styles to our cases in each store.Our Hanover Store is busy with engraving projects for our community’s graduation and award ceremonies.  It’s great to see all of the familiar names of the individuals receiving recognition.

Jewelry Tip

It’s the easy going sand and flip-flop time of year. Although you’r ready to unwind, summer can be especially ruff on your jewelry. Here is what you need to know to keep your favorite pieces safe and secure for the upcoming season.

  • Chlorine and salt water can age your precious metal. Never wear your jewelry in the pool, hot tub, ocean, or shower. Gold, silver, platinum and some gemstones will rapidly tarnish or erode when exposed to these corrosive elements.
  • Sunbathe without the sparklers. Lotions and sunscreens can coat or even degrade your jewelry. Always remove your jewelry when applying perfumes, cosmetics, and skin care products.
  • Organization is essential when traveling. Avoid hassle and damage, keep your jewelry in separate bags and avoid a jumbled mess.
  • Keep your jewelry safe while away. Select hotels with room safes or safe deposit boxes.
  • Before you travel, be sure your jewelry is adequately insured and has an up to date appraisal.

Remember to stop in often throughout the summer for a free professional cleaning and inspection at all of our locations.

Emerald

 

ABOUT EMERALDS

 

There are less fine large emeralds in the world than there are diamonds! Emeralds vary greatly in color from deep to light deep green. Most large emeralds have cracks and inclusions and may be cloudy. Natural inclusions are often referred to as ‘The Garden of the Emerald”.  Emeralds are commonly oiled to disguise the flaws and enhance their color.

The emerald belongs to the beryl family of minerals, or beryllium aluminum silicate in chemical jargon. Emeralds can lose color when heated strongly.

 EMERALD HISTORY 

Emerald was mined in Egypt as early as 330 B.C. Today, most of the world’s emeralds are mined in Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan, and Zambia.

 

THE HEALING POWERS 

Sometimes used to symbolize the reproductive forces of nature, and believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth.

 

CARE FOR YOUR EMERALD

Do not wear your emerald ring on while washing dishes or using soap, emeralds will attract grease and soap.  Avoid wearing your emerald when you might be engaging in physical activity that might scratch the stone.

Do not use ultrasonic cleaners, steam cleaners or harsh chemicals. Clean your emerald using room temperature running water and a soft toothbrush with mild soap like hand soap.be sure to clean the underside to remove accumulations of dirt and grease. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

DIAMOND
 
ABOUT DIAMONDS

Thought to be one of the hardest substances on the globe, diamonds date back billions of years.

Adopted from the Greek work “adamas,” meaning invincible, diamonds come in a wide range of colors such as black, blue, green, pink, red, purple, orange and yellow.

Diamonds are thought to provide the wearer balance, clarity and abundance.  It’s also symbolic of eternal love.

 DIAMOND HISTORY 

Sanskrit texts dating back before 400 B.C. found that people associated significant value and wonderment with crystals. Research dating back to the 1330s reports of diamond cutting in Venice. Ancient theories touting the magical powers of diamonds were prevalent: some thought lightning bolts formed diamonds, while other theories asserted that diamonds were the tears of god.

THE HEALING POWERS 

During the Middle Ages, diamonds were thought to hold healing powers by heating the crystal and taking it to bed, it was thought to draw out the harmful toxins.

PEARL JEWELRY CARE

Keep Your Pearls Looking Great For Generations

  • The best and perfect way to take care of your pearls, is to wear them often.  The reason is that your body’s natural oil will keep them lustrous.
  • Before wearing your pearls, carefully inspect for fraying of the silk on the edges of the pearls.
  • Refresh luster anytime by gently wiping with a soft cloth with oil.
  • Always put your pearls on last, after applying cosmetics which include hair spray and perfume. Many of these products will permanently discolor or erode pearls.
  • After you wear your pearls, gently wipe them down with a chamois cloth or other soft cloth and store separate from your other jewelry in a pearl folder or cloth bag. Keep pearls separate from other precious metals and gemstones, they may dull or scratch the tender surfaces of your pearls.
