green gemstones

Bombarded by industry news and fashion publications, we are all well aware that the choice color of this year is, “Emerald Green”.

The large varieties of colors available in the “GREEN” family are all equally appealing and desirable. Each of them offer different looks and price points to your fashion savvy customers. Gemstones such as Peridot, Tourmalines, Tsavorite, and Green Zircon are great choices besides the obvious coveted Emerald.

In general, lighter and brighter pieces seem to dominate the color palette in fashion and jewelry in a whole range of colors. Softer brighter shades of color seem to capture the mood of today’s buyer the best, bringing a fun and easy spirit to a feminine yet playful look. Have fun mixing vibrant pastel colors together, or keep it simple with one color only accented with neutrals like diamonds or pearls.

Gem Chrome Tourmaline

Monday, March 7th, 2011


A beautiful rich emerald green color, this fine quality chrome tourmaline truly exemplifies the best of its color. With a rare and difficult shape to find this eye catching emerald cut chrome tourmaline is extremely unique. Perfect for offering the much sought after “green” red carpet look at a fraction of the cost at an equally fine emerald, it probably is as rare of a gem, in its own category.

A New Find: Color Change Garnet from Kenya

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Gems with phenomena have always held our fascination. When thinking of “fine color change”, Alexandrite is what comes to mind. What makes this particular find of Color Change Garnet from Kenya special, is that among them are some stones that duplicate the color change of Alexandrite. The other types of color change garnet  mined there also have very good color change, but in a different range of colors, very beautiful in their own right. These types usually are a lot less expensive and more plentiful.

I had a few jewelers and dealers look at some nice stones I was displaying in Tucson, saying that if not told; by the color change alone they would have thought for sure these were Alexandrites.
