Tanzanite for Day and Night

Tanzanite for Day and Night

Lapis, sapphire, turquoise and topaz are all lovely shades of blue, showcasing Mother Nature’s spectrum. Tanzanite is a unique blue, like midnight sky on a deep blue sea with purple glints that make you want to look deeper and longer.

Ana Khouri Jewelry: The Punk Princess

Sentimental Jewelry: Tokens of Love

I love rare gemstones as much as the next Snob, but even rarer than Alexandrite or Paraiba tourmaline are the pieces that hold sentimental significance to my life and the people in it. That’s why I just had a Chinchar/Maloney necklace made with my birthstone, as well those of the boy and my hubby.
