Gem Juice: A Triple Dose of Info

Gem Juice is a helpful information blog on jewelry and how to keep yours looking great!

1. Amethyst is the gem most often bestowed on those born in February. Amethyst is the purple passion, ranging from lilac to ripe plum coloring.

2. Rings are "sized" by adding or taking away metal from the bottom of the shank, or the farthest point and usually the thinnest area, from the gemstones.

3. Cultured pearls are beautiful, but very porous and fragile. They absorb impurities such as perfume, hair spray and makeup. It is suggested that in order to maintain the beauty of this gem for as long as possible, your pearls be professionally cleaned and re-strung on new silk every year.
