Gemstone Jewelry | Avon, CT | DeRobertis Jewelers

You’re a Gem!

Gemstone jewelry is vivacious, unique, dramatic, flirty, and full of personality. Sound like you? The perfect colorful accompaniment to your favorite outfits, unique engagement ring, or anniversary gift, gemstone jewelry is an underrated category of distinctive and cost-effective jewelry. Precious stones — such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds — don't scratch easily and come in a variety of vivid colors. Amethyst, aquamarine, topaz, and other semi-precious stones are perfect for birthstone jewelry, mother's rings, or statement pieces to go with your favorite outfit. Gemstone jewelry is perfect for small gifts and tokens of love since it is affordable and available in a range of sizes and quality. A large selection of gemstone rings, earrings, and more are available at DeRobertis Jewelers.

A Special Anniversary

You've likely heard of Gold, Silver, and Ruby anniversaries, but there's actually a particular present for each anniversary. Just like birthstones go with the months, each anniversary year has a different gemstone, color, or metal associated with it. For example, a fourth anniversary gift is associated with the color blue, and blue topaz is the traditional gemstone. Blue topaz is a gemstone that comes in a spectrum of blue hues, ranging from a clear, light robin's egg blue to a darker, more lapis-like color. The sentiment of a blue topaz is very sweet, symbolizing romance, affection, and love. Look for gemstone jewelry associated with your anniversary year for a sweet gift that they'll always remember.

Semi-precious but Never Semi-dramatic

Semi-precious gemstones don't get all the credit they deserve. If you're on the hunt for a distinctive set of earrings, a semi-precious stone can be one of the best routes: they come in all sorts of colors, and you can often find very large and good-quality stones at an affordable price. If you're on the search for a green stone but don't want an emerald, check out garnets or peridots. Garnets, typically dark to light red, can also form as green crystals; in this form they are referred to as tsavorite, which is rarer but maintains the same core minerals present in the garnet family. Peridot, one of the few naturally-occurring stones available in only one color, still has a vast selection of shades, from a light yellowish-green to moss to a brownish-olive. While you might not find a shade of pure emerald green in either one, you'll be happily surprised by the variety that awaits you!

Mother’s Rings

Mother's rings, and the less-common but still beautiful mother's necklaces and bracelets, are a touching way to say "I love you." Mother's keepsake jewelry features gemstones to represent the month in which each child was born; for small families, the parents' birthdays can also add a nice touch to bring more color and variety to the jewelry. While rings are the most traditional, consider cluster earrings or a custom pendant instead. When styling mother's jewelry, don't be afraid to get creative — engraving initials, names, or birthdates can add a special touch and make the piece truly yours.
