December the third and final month to be lucky enough to have three birthstones to choose from.
All 3 of these beautiful gemstones are known for their blue-purple tones. With many of the earths natural beauties being the same shades of colours to these stunning gemstones, we have many products inspired by these scintillating colours.
Turquoise: This stunning gem known for its bold colour and mottled pattern is just one of the birthstones for December. Turquoise often has veins of matrix, which is the distinct pattern and is actually remnants of the rock in which this gemstone is formed. Pharaoh’s and other rulers of ancient Egypt bejewelled themselves with this gem. Many beneficial powers are believed to belong to this gemstone, including good fortune and health and protect the wearer from falling (perfect for the clumsy ones born in this month). Traditionally in Europe giving a turquoise ring means ‘forget me not’. Will this be the birthstone of your choice?
If you love the colour turquoise, and it is your birthstone of choice then these cufflinks are for you. Made from sterling silver, delicately hand-enamelled with the beautiful turquoise colour and finished with a black spinel boarder. A unique nod to the turquoise birthstone and a wonderful gift to give or receive.
Tanzanite: Tanzanite is not only fairly new as a December birthstone, but it is fairly new to the world itself. Tanzanite was discovered in the 20th century originating from Tanzania. This velvety violet coloured gem can range from a rich blue to a light violet. It has also become the gem used to celebrate the 24th wedding anniversary. If you have a fondness for purple this could be the birthstone of your choice.
Tanzanite is know for its rich purple and blue tones. Our sterling silver, purple enamel cufflinks are a great way of showing off the rich colours of the tanzanite gemstone in an elegant, subtle way. The perfect gift for all purple lovers this Christmas.
Zircon: This gemstone comes in a variety of colours, one of the most known is colourless zircon as it has been used as an alternative to diamond due to its brilliance and flashes of colour that are close to that of a diamond. During the middle ages it was believed that this gemstone could put one in a deep sleep and scare of evil spirits. Hindu religion has thought that zircon alternates with hessonite garnet as one of the 9 gemstones of the navaratna. When these 9 gems are all worn together the wearer is brought wealth, wisdom, good health and protected. Is zircon the gem that matches you the most?
Zircon may come in a variety of colours, however blue zircon is definitely one of our favourites. Numerous shades of blue can be found in these gemstones. Show off stunning shades of blue with our sterling silver, hand-enamelled blue stripe cufflinks. These cufflinks should be part of all cufflink collections and are perfect for any outfit and any occasion.
