A Rainbow of Gemstone Jewelry in the Cornelius, NC Area
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 Morrison Smith Jewelers.
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!
Whether you're trying to be more eco-conscious or you don't think it's worth going into debt for a diamond but still want a naturally-occurring stone, clear gemstones are gaining traction and popularity as diamond alternatives. Colorless sapphires and moissanite are the most diamond-like gemstones and have much of the durability, hardness, and sparkle that diamonds do. Other stones like morganite and aquamarine don't have quite the same colorless qualities, but they catch the light in the same way a diamond would. For your next purchase, why not try an aquamarine ring or a pair of moissanite earrings to mix it up a little?
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.
