Fall Issue 2011

Although yellow gold jewelry is slowly making a comeback, sterling silver jewelry remains to be one of the fall favorites and is both stylish and affordable. Spice up your attire with some wonder-"fall" jewelry from gemaffair.com.

October’s Birthstone – Opal

Opal’s are one of the most colorful and flashiest birthstones. They are sprinkled with confetti colored sparkles that vary in intensity depending on the angle from which the viewer sees it. These multicolored flashes of light create a unique and spectacular gemstone that has been given to lucky October babies as their official October Birthstone

Opals are considered to be extremely powerful in ritual magic. Because opals contain the colors found in every other gemstone, they are often used as substitutes for hard-to-find stones during rituals and any other magical circumstances. According to urban mythology and lore, Opals have been linked to both invisibility and astral projection. They are also believed to have amazing healing properties and call upon the unused power of the mind and enhance the wearer’s creative imagination.

November’s Birthstone – Topaz

Although this November birthstone was first loved by the Egyptians, the topaz gemstone’s popularity peaked during the middle ages when people believed that wearing topaz jewelry would strengthen the mind.

Topaz gemstones are most famous for their crystal blue color, but topaz actually comes in a vibrant rainbow of colors and even colorful combinations such as the sparkling parade of colors that is found in mystic fire topaz jewelry. Red and intense pink topaz are considered to be the most rare within the topaz color family making pink topaz jewelry one of the most coveted pieces of gemstone jewelry among women.

December’s Birthstone – Tanzanite

Tanzanite was actually made popular by the jewelry company Tiffany & Co. back in 1967. They were the very first jewelry company to ever incorporate this magnificent gem into their jewelry and made woman all over the world fall in love with its sparkling blue/violet hues.

In October 2002, the American Gem Trade Association officiated tanzanite as the second certified birthstone for December. Now December babies could choose between the sparkling purple tanzanite jewels or solid turquoise stones to represent their birth month. This certification made tanzanite sales skyrocket and also up’ed their price per carat. Today tanzanite is found in jewelry all over the world and is worn by anyone who appreciates its sparkling properties and unique shade of color.
