October Options

October is the month of change. School is in full swing. Leaves are becoming brilliant colors such as red, yellow, and orange. Opal, which is the October birthstone, includes all of those brilliant colors and many more with its fiery ever changing color kaleidoscope. Surprise her on her birthday with an opal pendant, opal earrings, or an opal bracelet.

November Provides Variety

November is the season for thankfulness, and November babies can be thankful for the variety of colors that their Topaz birthstone can come in. Although Amber is the traditional topaz color, pink topaz, blue topaz, red topaz, and even a translucent green topaz can all be considered a November baby's precious gem. What more could a girl (or guy) be thankful for. Be sure to show her how thankful you are by giving her a topaz ring, set of earrings, or a teardrop pendant. Topaz is a known symbol for strength and wisdom as well, creating an even better reason to give this amazing stone to your loved one.

Tanzanite in December

Discovered in 1967, tanzanite can be found in blue, purple, or slate gray. It can be beautifully surrounded by yellow gold, white gold, silver, or platinum in a variety of different jewelry choices. With parties and social events abundant, giving her something bright and glittery will enhance her natural beauty and boost her spirits.

Blue Topaz and Turquoise are also considered December birthstones and any of the three will be a beautiful addition to your December sweetheart's jewelry collection.

Gold is a Great Investment

With the stock market in turmoil and the future uncertain, why not invest in something that has been stable through the ages. Gold prices are on the rise despite the economic decline. Why not invest in something beautiful that you can appreciate while it appreciates. A beautiful ring, necklace, bracelet, or watch will make the love of your life smile while increasing in value. What a terrific combination.

Christmas Shipping Schedule

GEMaffair.com offers you a distinct advantage over most other online jewelry retailers. We use the United States Postal Service, and in doing so are able to have our jewelry delivered 7 days a week throughout December. We can even deliver on Christmas Day, Believe it or not, even if you don't order until 9 am on December 24th, we can get your jewelry to you by Christmas Day as long as you ship the package via Express Mail. We're not encouraging you to procrastinate, but just in case you do, we hope it is comforting to know that we have your back.

If you order via Priority mail, you can order as late as Monday Dec. 22nd at 9am and it should arrive on Christmas Day. Regular mail will not deliver on Christmas Day.

Gift Giving Ideas

Stuck for a great idea for giving your loved one that perfect gift? Need ways to say "I love you" or "I'm sorry" but just can't seem to find the creative juices? We have just the thing for you. We are in the process of creating a "gift ideas" section just for you. This section has been written by women, specifically for men who need a little help in the gift giving department. It will be full of step by step ideas (and detailed checklists) for giving the perfect gift (from choosing the occasion to choosing the gift) as well as various ideas for specific gift giving reasons (engagement, apology, etc.) Some of the titles are as follows:
  • Brand New Undies
  • Happy Trails
  • No Reason at All
  • Say it with Flowers
  • So You Think you Can Dance
  • The Thrill of the Hunt
  • Will You Marry Me
It is our goal to make gift giving "guy proof". :) Look for the completed version in early 2009.

It Is More Blessed to Give

During these horrible economic times, the holidays are a stress creator for many people. Why not give back to those less fortunate. Buy a meal for a needy family for Thanksgiving. Serve at a soup kitchen. Purchase gifts for those in need this Christmas.

Contact your local churches, homeless shelters, battered womens shelters, or Salvation Army to find out how to give to those in need. The gift does not have to be a monetary one. Give the gift of time and service and you feel the real meaning of this holiday season. It really is more blessed to give than to receive.

Happy Holidays from your most versatile and amazing ecommerce jewelry company, www.GEMaffair.com
