What is your favorite diamond shape? #pickyourfave #diamonds

The shape of a diamond can drastically alter and enhance the qualities of a stone. Diamond shapes can create the illusion of bigger size or make it sparkle more. Women dream about big stones; fancy shapes look bigger than others, such as oval or marquise shapes. Shape is not the same as cut. Shape refers to the diamond’s physical appearance and cut refers to the ability to reflect light. The shape doesn’t belong to the 4C’s diamond’s attributes.

Two jewelers from India have broken the World Guinness Record for "most diamonds set in one ring," by setting a staggering 6,690 diamonds into an 18 karat rose gold structure, shaped like a lotus flower. The ring has a flower design consisting of 48 individual pedals, encrusted with diamonds.

The lotus ring weighs more than a golf ball, with a total weight of just over 58 grams. It took six months to design and craft the intricate ring, which has been valued at $4,116,787 USD.

As with all Guinness diamond related records, the diamonds used for the project had to be verified as conflict free from independent sources.

Happy birthday, July babies!

There’s no better way to demonstrate your love than by giving a ruby, King of Gems, in celebration of a July birthday. Rubies arouse the senses and stir the imagination! Ruby is durable enough for everyday wear as it is harder than any natural gemstone except diamond.

Ruby is a variety of the gems species corundum. Other colors of corundum gemstones are called sapphires. Fine-quality ruby is extremely rare, and the color of the gem is most important to its value. The most prized color is a medium or medium dark vivid red or slightly purplish red.

Here's a COOL fact about diamonds!

If you put a diamond on your tongue, your tongue will start to get cooler! This happens because diamonds are great conductors of heat. Your tongue feels cool because the diamond is drawing heat out of your tongue.

How exactly do pearls, June's birthstone, form in nature?

Pearls are formed when a tiny bit of sand or material gets trapped inside an oyster. The oyster produces a “nacre” as a defense mechanism that coats the intruder, layer after layer. A pearl is formed naturally in only 1 in every 10,000 oysters. 

Freshwater pearls can take between 1 and 6 years to form; whereas saltwater may take between 5 and 20 years. The longer a pearl stays in the shell, the more nacre that forms and the larger the pearl. Freshwater pearls can grow to be just as big as saltwater pearls, but they take less time to develop because the layers of nacre are not as compact as those surrounding the saltwater pearl.

Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy was well-known for her affinity with June's birthstone, pearl, and to many, she was the epitome of elegance!

Known for her sophisticated sense of style, her love for colorful and fashion-forward attire, pearls were the perfect way to compliment her vibrant but chic fashion sense with a kiss of old-world class and charm. There was a kind of mystique about her, a subtle allure and enchantment that seemed mirrored in the lustrous pearls that captured the collective imagination of a nation.

Did you know June has a 3RD birthstone?! June is one of only two months that has three birthstones associated with it. We've highlighted pearl and alexandrite, two of June's birthstones; the third is MOONSTONE!

June’s third birthstone, moonstone, was named by the Roman natural historian Pliny, who wrote that moonstone’s shimmery appearance shifted with the phases of the moon. As its name implies, moonstone is closely associated with lunar mystery and magic. Its calming, balancing energies can supposedly attune to natural biological rhythms. Also known as the Traveler’s Stone, it’s believed to protect travelers at night. #moonstone #junebirthstones

June's popular alternate birthstone, Alexandrite, is one of the most interesting and rare gem varieties in the world!

Alexandrite is a relatively modern gemstone, discovered in Russia in 1831. What makes alexandrite such a unique gemstone: It has a chameleon-like ability to change colors, and has been described as an “emerald by day, ruby by night.” It is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light!
