How To Clean Your Gold Jewelry

Fine jewelry, engagement rings, and wedding rings – what does it take to properly maintain your gold and platinum jewelry? We’ll give you the complete rundown on how to clean jewelry.

How To Clean Your Jewelry Metals

Every fine jewelry wearer should learn how to clean gold jewelry and platinum jewelry to perfection. Why? Three reasons: sparkle, sanitization, and safeguarding.

For sparkle: Your jewelry shines its brightest at its cleanest. Over time, thin layers of dust and oil accumulate and block light from reaching your jewelry’s surfaces. Without light, there’s no reflection, refraction, brilliance, or fire. So if you notice that your jewelry is looking a bit dull, your first thought should be to clean it.

For sanitization: jewelry is full of prongs and crevices that collect grime. This doesn’t just dull your jewelry’s shine; it also means your jewelry is constantly transferring germs between you and your surroundings. Think of regular cleaning like hand-washing for your jewelry; it keeps your jewelry sanitized and keeps you healthy. Particularly in the era of COVID-19, sanitization is critical.

For safeguarding: A dirty ring is a damaged ring. Particulate build-up can scratch and/or discolor your jewelry metal. On the other hand, cleaning your jewelry too often or too vigorously can also seriously damage your jewelry. Harsh cleaners on some metals can wear away plating, causing permanent discoloration. 

How often should I clean my ring?

How often should you clean your jewelry? That depends on how thoroughly you want to clean it. Regular, gentle cleaning should be performed weekly, while more thorough cleansing should only occur occasionally so that the harsh chemicals don’t damage your jewelry.

Learn how to clean your jewelry like a pro

Light cleaning: every week

  1. Warm water + dish soap + soft toothbrush.
    Make your own jewelry cleaner by filling a bowl with warm (not hot) water, and then adding a few drops of dish soap. Put your jewelry in the mixture and let it sit for 15 minutes. Afterwards, take your jewelry out of the bowl and scrub it clean with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Rinse, dry with a soft towel, and lay out on a soft surface to dry.
  2. Polishing cloth.
    In a pinch, a normal microfiber cloth will do. However, specialty jewelers’ cloths are the best, since they contain particular cleaning compounds formulated to both polish and remove small scratches in your jewelry. 

Occasional cleaning: every 1-2 months

  1. Ammonia.
    For a deep cleaning at home, create a strong jewelry cleaner by adding one part ammonia to six parts water. Let your jewelry sit in this mixture for no more than 1 minute. Remove, rinse under running water, dry with a soft cloth, and place on a towel to air dry completely.

Deep cleaning: 1-2 times per year

  1. Free jewelry cleaning with James Allen.
    Either send your jewelry to James Allen for maintenance or take your jewelry to a local James Allen partner for a complimentary professional cleaning. Minor repairs are also free!
  2. Ultrasonic jewelry cleaning machine.
    These are similar to the machines used by professional jewelers. Ultrasound waves loosen grime from even the smallest of niches, and it only takes about 5 minutes. If you want to give your jewelry a regular deep clean, it may be worth investing in one. However, ultrasound jewelry cleaning doesn’t sanitize your jewelry, so it’s worth following up an ultrasonic treatment with a simple dish soap + water cleaning. Note: ultrasonic waves can damage jewelry that contains tungsten or soft, porous gemstones like pearls.

What daily habits should I adopt to protect my jewelry?

To prevent tarnishing and scratching, it’s worth learning a few helpful jewelry habits. These actions are most important for protecting softer metals like yellow gold and plated metals like white gold, which can be most easily scratched or discolored.

  1. Store each piece of jewelry in its own cloth bag to prevent scratching.
  2. Keep a jeweler’s polishing cloth in your bag or backpack. That way, you can polish your jewelry on the go whenever you realize it’s looking a bit tarnished.
  3. Take your jewelry off when you’re sleeping. During sleep, your ring can catch on linens. Not only can this damage your fabric, it can also pull prongs out of place. Plus, the more your skin touches your jewelry, the quicker your natural oils accumulate and dull the sparkle of your metal and stones.
  4. Remove your jewelry during certain activities, including whenever you:
  5. Work with your hands
  6. Use caustic materials like household cleaners – or wear rubber gloves.
  7. Apply makeup or hairspray
  8. Exercise. This is especially true when you do upper body work that requires gripping, like lifting weights. However, cardiovascular activities like running may also deposit sweat on your jewelry which can tarnish it over time.
  9. Swim in chlorinated pools
  10. Paint your nails

How do I clean my yellow gold jewelry?

Most yellow gold jewelry is offered in two different karats of metals: 14k and 18k. While 24k is pure gold, lower carats are actually mixed with other metals (like nickel, copper, and silver) in order to strengthen it to the point that it’s suitable for jewelry. If you’re wondering how to clean gold jewelry, you’re in luck: yellow gold is slow to tarnish and dull, and doesn’t require maintenance as frequently as other gold jewelry metals.

  1. Use: Dish soap + water, ammonia, or polishing cloth.
  2. Avoid: Bleach and tough scrubbing brushes

How do I clean my white gold jewelry?

White gold’s silvery luster is created by alloying yellow gold with white metals like nickel or zinc, and finishing with rhodium plating. Normal wear and tear will result in the need for rhodium re-plating every 5-10 years in order to maintain white gold’s silvery appearance. This rhodium plating can also be worn down by strong chemicals, so take off your white gold rings when cleaning.

  1. Use: dish soap + water or polishing cloth
  2. Avoid: harsh chemicals which can strip the rhodium plating.

How do I clean my rose gold jewelry?

Rose gold is a yellow gold/copper alloy. The gold gives it a malleability and sheen that’s perfect for jewelry, and the copper gives it its distinctive pink hue. It’s also the strongest of all the gold metals, so your rose gold jewelry can be worn more often, with less chance of scratching.

  1. Use: dish soap + water or polishing cloth
  2. Avoid: abrasive chemicals

How do I clean my platinum jewelry?

Platinum is a rare, valuable metal with a gorgeous silvery sheen that retains its white luster with minimal maintenance. It’s also the most durable of all the ring metals! In general, you’ll have to clean platinum jewelry less regularly than gold, and it will also scratch less.

  1. Use: dish soap + water or polishing cloth.
  2. Avoid: Ammonia

A Tidy Summary

No matter what metal your jewelry is made from, it’s important to maintain its sparkle via weekly cleanings with dish soap, warm water, and a soft-bristled toothbrush. For a squeaky-clean professional shine, either send your James Allen jewelry to us for a quick and complimentary deep cleaning or take it to one of our brick-and-mortar partner jewelers. Or spend a bit of money to DIY, and deep clean it with either an ammonia-water mixture or purchase an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. 

Treating your jewelry right will help it look continuously brilliant throughout the years.

We adore well-stacked and layered jewelry. It can take a bland outfit to a whole new level while appearing effortless. There’s no limit to what jewelry you can layer, from fine jewelry accessories to diamond trinkets. 

Layering your jewelry in a way that leaves your look polished and perfect can be a little tricky. There are basic rules and tips you can follow to make sure your style isn’t screaming “overkill.” We’ve come up with a few trusted tips that you can always keep in mind before you get ready for a casual night out or an important event. 

Whether you love layering necklaces or enjoy stacking rings, let us show you that more is definitely more when piling on sparkling accessories. 

The Art Of Layering And Stacking Necklaces

When layering your necklaces, it’s important to remember that it can be done no matter what time of year it is. Layering necklaces and pendants can be just as gorgeous over a turtleneck sweater as they would on a bare neck in the glowing summer.

As you layer, keep your touch as delicate as possible. You don’t want to add one chunky necklace next to another and risk looking sloppy. If you love the more heavy neck accessories, then consider layering a chunky choker with bolder chains.  

Pro tip: pearl necklaces make for a perfect classic chunky choker.

They say all good things come in threes: three layers of glittering perfection. 

For a softer look, we recommend taking a few elegant pieces, like a diamond or gemstone pendant, and pairing it with a few thinly chained necklaces of varying lengths. Allow them to rest about an inch from each other to get a decorated look.

Pro tip: Feel free to mix and match different metal types when you’re layering your necklaces.

Ring Stacking For Glamorous And Bold Ensembles  

We have two tips and tricks for stacking rings. One for stacking gemstone and fine jewelry rings and the other for artfully stacking your engagement ring

Stacking rings can be one way to express your unique personality. Stacked rings can give off an elegant aesthetic or more of a contemporary vibe, depending on your outfit of choice. 

Skies the limit when layering your rings, as texture and color mixing is always welcome! Play around with various shapes and lines to add horizontal and vertical dimensions to your style. 

Pro tip: make sure to leave one or two fingers ring-free when stacking and layering your rings.

Stacking engagement rings with accented diamond rings is a trend we’ve seen celebrities like Hailey Bieber adopt in recent years. 

Depending on your engagement ring’s setting and center stone, there are endless ways to pair it with your wedding band and anniversary rings. You could pair a solitaire engagement band with a thin-band pavé eternity ring or stack your fancy-shaped diamond with a geometrical ring that sits well against its shape. 

Pro tip: stack your engagement ring with thin band rings, so you add to your sparkle without taking away its spotlight. 

Deep V Diamond Ring

Try stacking smooth and clean-lined precious metal bracelets, either on both wrists or layered up one arm for a chic and polished look. This is lovely for your everyday work look or a semi-formal event.

If you’re feeling colorful and want to go wild with an array of textured and gemstone bracelets, then pick two main pieces you wish to highlight and dress them up with thick and thin bracelets and bangles. 

Pro tip: Invest in easy-to-slip-on bracelets if you’re planning on wearing them often.

The September Birthstone: Sapphire Jewelry Pieces

Sapphire, the September birthstone, is the perfect combination of jewelry qualities: beauty, strength, affordability, and prestige. Learn why September’s birthstone is the standout gemstone you need to keep your eye on! 

The September Birthstone: Sapphire Jewelry Pieces

Sapphire, a variation of the mineral corundum, is the ultimate classic blue gemstone. What sets it apart from other blue stones like topaz, aquamarine, or turquoise? Sapphire has an intensity of color that’s unparalleled. Its rich azure color is unique among gemstones. As an added bonus, it’s been prized for millennia as a stylish ward against ill-fortune. 

Mined primarily in countries around the Indian Ocean (and in lesser quantities in the United States), sapphires pop up in royal families across multiple cultures. 

Durability

Sapphire is one of the strongest gemstones, with a score of 9 on the Mohs hardness scale. For comparison, the famously durable diamond claims the top score of 10. What does this mean for you? Confidently wear your blue sapphire jewelry, going through your daily routine without worrying about scratching, chipping, or any other wear-and-tear.

Birthstone

Sapphire is the September birthstone. By wearing sapphires, September birthdays can secure good luck year-round while also ensuring perpetual chic style. 

Color

The most popular sapphire is, of course, blue sapphire. In fact, its popularity overtakes this gemstone’s other hues. That’s right – it’s not widely known that sapphires also come in 3 other gorgeous colors. Blue sapphires, pink sapphires, yellow sapphires, green sapphires, OH MY!

Sapphire is a type of the mineral corundum, of which ruby is the red variation thanks to high amounts of chromium. As the amount of chromium decreases, corundums display paler hues, and under a certain chromium threshold, corundums are called pink sapphires. Blue and green sapphires owe their intense color to trace quantities of titanium and iron, and yellow sapphires to iron only.

History

Sapphires have been prized by royalty and clergy for millennia. Believed to protect against the evil eye, promote sanctity, and reveal the cryptic, sapphires have always been popular among the powerful.

Popes of the past wore holy, engraved sapphires set in gold. England’s royal family is known for wearing sapphire jewelry, from Princess Diana’s sapphire engagement ring (currently worn by Kate Middleton) to Queen Elizabeth II’s sapphire wedding jewelry. 

Affordability

Across the board, sapphires are more affordable than diamonds, making them a wallet-friendly alternative to traditional diamond jewelry, especially in engagement rings. Choose sapphire jewelry when you want to go for sparkle + intense color.

Complementary

Blue and green sapphires perfectly complement winter skin tones, as well as blue and green eyes. Set cooler-toned sapphires in a white jewelry metal, like white gold or platinum, for maximum effect.

Want jewelry that suits warm skin tones? Go for pink and yellow sapphires set in white or rose gold. 

Novelty

While sapphires are famous, they’re not the most worn stone. So when you want to go for unique jewelry that turns heads, sapphire is a perfect choice. This is especially true for sapphire engagement rings

Minimalist Jewelry: A Beginner’s Guide

Discover the jewelry that minimalists are going crazy for to wear alone, stacked, or layered with other fine jewelry pieces that will remain trendy now and for years to come.  

A collection of fine jewelry, from earrings and bracelets to necklaces.

Are you a beginner only just discovering the incredible power of jewelry? Or perhaps you already know what jewels you like, and you’re looking to add a more minimalist edge to your style. Whatever category you fit into, we’re here to guide you on your journey of discovery.

Minimalist jewelry is and always will be a fashionable option for just about any event or occasion. We’ve looked at common mistakes made when trying to pull off this look and how we can make it easier for you to rock minimalist jewelry and still look effortlessly stunning. 

Here are our top six tips to look out for when purchasing, pairing and wearing minimalist jewelry like a pro. 

Play It Cool With The Classics 

When it comes to minimalist jewelry, invest in the essentials. Add a few classic pieces to your jewelry box for a chic minimalist style that works every time. Timeless jewelry pieces will always pass the latest trends, whether it’s a pair of diamond stud earrings or a dainty pearl bracelet.

Classic or vintage jewelry can be bought for absolutely any occasion and will stand the test of time. They also make for the best gifts and are perfect for both casual and formal environments.

Make One Bold Statement 

The key to a minimalist style is an outfit that has one showstopping jewelry piece. Whether it be a sleek pair of gemstone earrings or a sparkling diamond ring, a single jewel can keep you looking fashion-forward. Nothing screams minimalist chic more than one impactful piece of jewelry to keep all eyes on you.

Keep Your Jewelry Box Light 

Minimalist jewelry can serve you time and time again. Stick to a few versatile pieces that you might wear for both informal and formal occasions with any type of outfit. Here, we suggest starting with precious metals. These metals often appear as clean, sleek lines with smooth satin surfaces.

This type of jewelry is a staple of simple elegance and easy to throw on at a minute’s notice. Take a pair of simple gold earrings, for example, put them on and you’ve gone from casual to polished in an instant. Plus, it’s a long-term investment in quality and style you’ll get to cherish and wear any time you want.

Just because you’re going with minimalist jewelry doesn’t mean you need to lose your shine. Diamond jewelry is still the perfect choice for a polished and sparkling aesthetic, like diamond pendants or diamond tennis bracelets. Our only advice here will be to stick to one kind of metal if you wear more than one piece of diamond jewelry.

What we love about gemstones is their ability to look fabulous in whichever fine jewelry piece you prefer. Their color will give you the extra finesse your outfit needs to make a statement; from gemstone rings to a chic gemstone necklace, your options are endless. As a minimalist rule, it’s less complicated to stick to your favorite type of gemstone and avoid unnecessary mixing and matching.

Try to avoid designs that are too intricate and move towards more opulent jewelry with clean cuts and smooth surfaces. You don’t want to take away from the curated minimalism that comes with uncomplicated jewelry designs.

Grass-Green Peridot: The August Birthstone

Looking for a gift for a special August-born someone? Peridot jewelry is here to end your search! Its bright yellow-green hue complements both cool and warm skin tones – plus, it looks stunning in any design.

August Birthstone Peridot jewelry: diamond and peridot ring, peridot stud earrings

THE MEANING OF PERIDOT

Peridot is the August birthstone, and it’s an especially summery treat! Widely believed to sharpen the mind, imbue positivity, and promote good health, peridot is simply delightful. Its grass-green hue pairs perfectly with those hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer. Wear the August birthstone as you sip a mint mojito by the side of the pool.

WHAT IS PERIDOT?

Peridot is the gem-quality form of olivine, a silicate mineral found in the earth’s upper mantle. It’s also called chrysolite. It’s always green, although the particular shade depends on its iron content. Peridot is the form of olivine that contains 12% – 15% iron, although it also contains a good amount of magnesium. Olivine with high magnesium content is called forsterite – and appears brighter green- while those with more iron content are called fayalite – and appear muddy brown. 

Peridot has also been found in meteorites! These stunning silvery meteorites are honeycombed with yellowish peridots.

THE HISTORY OF PERIDOT

Peridot has been treasured for thousands of years. The earliest record we have of mined peridot is from around 1500 BCE, off the coast of Egypt on St. John’s island. Although the etymology of peridot is disputed, it possibly derives from the Arabic “faridat,” meaning “gem.” 

Peridot has often been mistaken for emerald; the broad color spectrums of the two green stones tend to overlap. The Three Holy Kings shrine in Germany’s Cologne Cathedral was – for centuries – famous for its impressive emerald decorations, which turned out to be several hundred carats’ worths of gorgeous peridot! Similarly, historians suspect that Cleopatra’s renowned collection of emerald jewelry was, in fact, largely a collection of peridot jewelry.

HOW TO WEAR PERIDOT

This sunny green gem looks incredible with warm metals. Yellow gold + peridots are an especially winning duo. And it goes without saying that anyone with green eyes would see their natural iris color boosted 10x over by a pair of verdant peridot earrings.

The real kicker? It looks fabulous in any cut. You can rock your favorite stone shape – oval, princess, baguette, cushion, classic round – in peridot.

Radiant Ruby: The July Birthstone

Tap your heels together three times and repeat after us: there’s no birthstone like ruby, there’s no birthstone like ruby, there’s no birthstone like ruby.

cover ruby Birthstone Jewelry Blog Update copy

Ruby, the July birthstone, is simply luxurious. Its blood-red color has been prized for millennia. Rubies are mentioned multiple times in the bible, were described by Pliny in the first century AD, and are named “the king of gems” – ratnaraj – in Sanskrit. Traditionally mined in South Asia, and in particular Thailand and Myanmar, they made their way via the silk road to all corners of the ancient world. 

Though rubies likely rose to royal status first in ancient India, they were quickly adopted into noble families wherever they went. Jaw-dropping ruby jewelry sets are currently worn by the royal families of England, Denmark, and Portugal. And a bit further back, Marco Polo wrote that the Chinese emperor Kublai Khan, upon visiting the ruby mines of Sri Lanka, was so taken by the gems’ beauty that he offered to trade a whole city for one particularly massive scarlet stone. 

Ruby’s Meaning

Ruby birthdays enjoy a wealth of special ruby meanings, among them passion, love, wisdom, wealth, and power. Nice. The ruby’s depth of history and meaning certainly makes them one of the more impressive birthstones; July babies are lucky enough to have an excuse to wear these charmed gems year-round.

If you’re celebrating your 40th wedding anniversary, there can be no gift other than rubies. 40 years of marriage calls for the Ruby Anniversary, and there are plenty of ruby jewelry gifts to celebrate with.

Ruby’s Durability

It’s almost as if ruby were made to be worn. At a 9 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, rubies are quite close to diamonds in terms of toughness. They’re incredibly durable and resistant to scratching. No matter how or when you wear them, they’ll come out the other side looking as good as can be. 

Fun fact: The ruby is very closely related to the sapphire; both precious stones are a variety of the mineral corundum. However, ruby exists at the redder end of the spectrum.

The July Birthstone: Ruby Rings

A ruby ring is the perfect birthstone gift. Special, singular, and super scarlet – gifting a beautiful ruby in a meaningful setting will melt the heart of any July birthday. The ultimate advantage of a ruby ring? The wearer can always see it. They’ll hold it up to the light, wiggle their fingers, and let your ruby birthstone ring shine.

Gemstone Jewelry Standouts of 2021

Read on to find out why gemstone jewelry has been on the up-and-up in 2021 – and discover customers’ favorite pieces!

blue topaz and diamond ring

It’s been an all-too-crazy and, at the same time, monotonous year. So it’s no wonder that people have been gravitating toward gemstones. They’re full of mood. They’re colorful shatterers of the boring status quo. And they’re so pretty!

Emerald Gemstone Jewelry

Emerald is a beautiful green stone whose vivid hue is particularly enhanced by proper cuts. They display an astonishing spectrum of magisterial green shades. In fact, the most diva-est of divas have always had a thing for emerald jewelry. That could be for a good reason: because emeralds can be quite dark in color, it’s best to opt for larger carats, which allow more light to strike the stone and reveal its features. 

Large jewels = star power.

Cleopatra claimed every emerald mine in Egypt for her own, Elizabeth Taylor famously wore a $6.6 million emerald brooch, and Jackie O’s engagement ring featured a stunning 2.84-carat emerald. It’s undeniable: emeralds work it.

DYK? May’s birthstone is emerald!

Diamond and Emerald Tennis Bracelet

14K White Gold Perpetual Diamond And Emerald Tennis Bracelet

Wow! This bracelet is amazing.
– Reemy J.

Petite Diamond and Emerald Earrings

18K White Gold Petite Drop Oval Halo Emerald And Diamond Earrings (6.0x4.0mm)

Great craftsmanship. These are petite earrings but they can be worn anytime.
– Jessica N. 

Aquamarine Gemstone Jewelry

Ah aquamarine, the watery-blue gemstone. These light-blue stones are remarkable reflectors of light, thanks to their naturally occurring hexagonal facets. Plus, aquamarine is a 7.5–8 on the Mohs scale, making it a strong, durable jewel that stands up well to daily wear. 

Aquamarine’s blue is exceptionally bright and pairs perfectly with another intense sparkler: diamond. Historically, it’s been used to soothe and has even been lauded by ancient sailors as a lucky talisman while at sea.

DYK? March’s birthstone is aquamarine!

Aquamarine Stud Earrings

Outstanding quality and craftsmanship.
– Edward S.

Diamond and Aquamarine Earrings

These aquamarine earrings are absolutely gorgeous! The pair is simple yet elegant!
– Asma A.

Sapphire Gemstone Jewelry

Sapphires are one of the most popular precious stones in gemstone jewelry. They’re also one of the most versatile: sapphires come in classic blue, as well as pink, yellow, and green!

Not only are they gorgeous, but sapphires are also incredibly durable gemstones, with a score of 9 on the Mohs hardness scale – second to only diamonds. This means that you can flaunt your blue sapphire jewelry without worrying about scratching, chipping, or any other wear-and-tear.

Blue sapphires have a distinctly royal flavor. England’s royal family is known for wearing sapphire jewelry, from Princess Diana’s sapphire engagement ring (currently worn by Kate Middleton) to Queen Elizabeth II’s sapphire wedding jewelry. All hail!

DYK? September’s birthstone is sapphire!

Diamond and Blue Sapphire Lily Necklace

The sapphire and diamond earrings are absolutely beautiful. Again, James Allen provided high quality, beautiful jewelry.

Topaz Gemstone Jewelry

Topaz is beloved for its crystal-clear beauty across the entire blue spectrum. It can appear in an aquamarine-like light blue, or in a hue as rich as the deep sea. Each gemstone’s color is unique.

Topaz is the ideal choice for budget-conscious fans of azure gemstones since it can mirror the hue of a light sapphire. You can score a large topaz with incredible clarity for a reasonable price. 

DYK? December’s birthstone is topaz!

Blue Topaz and Diamond Necklace

Blue Topaz and Diamond Ring

Simple but elegant. Simply beautiful!
– Kaleem A.

Pearl Gemstone Jewelry

Pearl jewelry deserves all the hype that comes its way. After all, they’re not only gorg –  they’re also the only critter-created gemstone! Pearls’ oyster origins give them a wonderful symmetry and graceful shimmer that complements absolutely any wardrobe choice. And not all pearls are white; some varieties are pink or even silvery black.

Pearl harvesting is a largely sustainable industry that promotes the health of liminal zones. Pearl-producing oysters can create multiple batches of pearls, all the while growing and getting on with their normal tasks of filtering natural bodies of water.

DYK? June’s birthstone is pearl!

Tahitian Cultured Pearl Earrings

85078D800_W_2_045 pearl stud earrings gemstone jewelry blog

My wife loves them! She wears them daily to her office, but they look just as good in a formal setting.
– Brad M.

Akoya Cultured Pearl Bracelet

85033_Y_2_052 pearl bracelet gemstone jewelry blog

I received this bracelet today and just fell in love with it. The gold beads have extra sparkle, the pearls are flawless.
– Colleen M.

Ruby Gemstone Jewelry

Ruby jewelry is the choice for the boldest and most fiery of gemstone wearers! No matter how you wear it, this stone’s unsubtle red pop is an attention-grabber. Elizabeth Taylor’s Cartier diamond and ruby necklace became instantly world-famous when she initially donned it. The royal families of England, Denmark, and Portugal own absolutely stunning sets of ruby jewelry.

But for all its dramatic red flair, ruby is actually a close relative of the sapphire. Both are variants of the mineral corundum. So go for a classic red lip, don your ruby jewelry, and you’ll be ready to walk a red carpet of your own making.

DYK? July’s birthstone is ruby!

Inside Out Diamond and Ruby Earrings

Bought these for my wife after she gave birth to our second daughter, who was born in July (Ruby). The earnings glisten from nearly every angle!

June Pearl Birthstone Jewelry

June Pearl Birthstone Jewelry

Happy birthday to all our pearl-loving June babies! You’ve lucked out with this luminescent June birthstone. Gorgeous and affordable, this marine beauty upgrades any personal style. Read on for our favorite pearl birthstone jewelry gifts.

Do you have a June birthday? Jealous! This is the month to treat yourself to pearls – or drop a hint to a loved one so they can treat you with a pearl birthday gift!

Pearl  June Birthstone Jewelry

Why Pearl Rules 

First of all, it’s the only marine gemstone. Thank you, oysters! These shore-dwelling mollusks are clever little creatures. They filter water, their oyster reefs provide homes for smaller organisms, they’re a tasty and sustainable source of food, and certain species produce our beloved pearls. 

How Oysters Produce Pearls

It all stems from a self-defense mechanism. When a bit of grit finds its way into an oyster’s belly, the creature neutralizes this annoyance by literally smoothing it over. It coats this piece of flotsam in layers and layers of naturally-secreted nacre (also known as mother of pearl), effectively quieting the original irritation. As time goes on, this nacre-coated fragment grows into a larger and larger pearl!

How Pearl Farmers Do It

Cultured pearls start off when pearl farmers “nucleate” their oysters; they insert a tiny bead into the oysters and wait for them to do their thing! This doesn’t hurt the oysters at all – in fact, they grow and get on with their normal tasks of filtering water even as the pearls grow inside them. 

Harvesting

Pearl harvesting, like pearl nucleating, doesn’t harm the oyster. When the time comes to harvest the pearls, farmers open the oysters slightly, extract the fully-”grown” pearl, and at the same time insert a new bead. They then re-submerge the oyster and the whole pearl process starts over!

June Birthdays and June Weddings

As the June birthstone, you can bet that pearl is rife with meaning. Representing wisdom and health, it’s no shock that they’re a great way to start off a new year. But they’re not only given on birthdays; most pearls display a gentle white sheen, and since white has traditionally represented humility, innocence, and new beginnings, it’s an extremely popular wedding gift.

It requires no complicated cutting or mining to extract pearls, and so their beauty is easy to appreciate. As such, it’s one of the oldest and most widely-treasured gemstones; for thousands of years they’ve been traded from China to Persia to Sri Lanka. The ancient Greeks believed they were the tears of the gods. Nowadays, the popularity of cultured pearls has made these once-rare gemstones much more affordable. So you can pick up your own heavenly pearls for a fraction of what ancient royalty once had to pay for them.

Pearl is June’s glowing birthstone, and we have a sweet collection of Akoya, Tahitian, South Sea, and freshwater cultured pearl jewelry. Here are a few of our favorites for June birthstone gifts:

Pearl Earrings

The One With The Friends Reunion Jewelry

The Friends reunion is upon us and we’re jumping up and down with glee! (Sorry, Mr. Heckles) To celebrate, we’ve put together Central Perk-worthy jewelry to match the most iconic Friends outfits. *clapclapclapclap*

Monica Geller, Rachel Green, and Phoebe Buffay sitting on the couch in wedding dresses drinking beer and eating popcorn.

Whether or not these Friends have been on a break is simply a moo point. They’re back, it’s happening, OH. MY. GOD.

The fashion of the Six is, in many ways, as legendary as they are – and good news, it’s still in style! With just a bit of accessorizing, you’ll be ready to star in your own 2021 remake of the series. 

So read on for hand-picked pieces, perfectly suited for the Friends reunion. You know we know you know you’ll love it!

Friends Reunion Jewelry: Phoebe Buffay

The Bohemian Look + Vine Motif Diamond Ring

Phoebe Buffay - Vine Motif Diamond Ring

Phoebe is the only one of the Friends who truly aced Bohemian style. Especially in the early seasons, Phoebe’s earthy outfits flowed as fluidly as her free spirit. If you’re a fan of her Friends outfits, you can perfectly set them off with a touch of nature-inspired shine. 

The Orange Coat + Emerald-Cut Citrine Necklace

The Orange Coat - Phoebe with Emerald-Cut Citrine Necklace

Phoebe is the queen of quirky Friends outfits. Her style is bold, colorful, and oh-so-memorable – and it’s as snatch-uppable as her and Rachel’s apothecary table from yore. It’s the “as seen on the street” style that we aspire to. So what’s more worthy of Phoebe Buffay’s muppet-orange (and still on-trend) coat than an eye-popping, honey-gold, go-big-or-go-home citrine statement piece? 

It’s not Pottery Barn, it’s James Allen. *hair flip*

The Lavender Wedding Dress + Amethyst and Diamond Ring

The Lavender Wedding Dress - Phoebe Buffay with Amethyst and Diamond Ring

Phoebe has a lesson for all brides: Do your day in your own way! On her wedding day to her lobster, Mike, she passed on the traditional white dress for something a bit more…Phoebe: a lavender silk beauty. We’re sure she would go for a unique wedding ring as well, like this dainty amethyst design:

Friends Reunion Jewelry: Ross Geller

The Leather Pants + Tantalum Men’s Wedding Ring

The Leather Pants - Ross Geller with Tantalum Men’s Wedding Ring

We’re not even going to ask if you remember these pants, because we know they’re burned into your brain. You couldn’t forget Ross’s leather pants if you scrubbed your memory squeaky-clean, Monica-style. They were tight. And they deserve a similarly sleek, uber-sexy ring.

That Sweater + Pink Sapphire and Diamond Earrings

That Sweater - Ross Geller with Pink Sapphire and Diamond Earrings

Oh, Ross. Who could forget that sweater. An unfortunate mix-up meant that he and his date showed up wearing the exact same swirling pink top. If any lemonade can be made out of these lemons, it’s with the help of these inspired diamond and pink sapphire earrings. Perfect for wearing on your next date. *wink*

Friends Reunion Jewelry: Rachel Green

The Strapless Yellow Dress + Citrine Drop Earrings

The Yellow Dress - Rachel Green with Citrine Drop Earrings

Rachel’s strapless yellow dress is one of the Friends outfits we would totally rock today. Slim, detailed, and butter-yellow, it’s a look that’s held up incredibly well throughout the years. If you love this figure-hugging dress, you’ll love the slim profile of these citrine and diamond earrings. Trust us, they’re about to be your favorite sparklers.

The Football Outfit + Platinum Bezel-Set Engagement Ring

Football - Citrine Drop Rachel Green with Platinum Bezel-Set Engagement Ring

As we watched the Friends head out for the Geller Cup, all we could think about was which ring would hold up against all that tackling. So for all you athletes and movers and shakers, here’s a professional tip: a platinum bezel-set ring will hold up best against the daily wear you put it through. The next time you’re fighting for a troll doll nailed to a two-by-four, think bezel.

Rachel’s Plaid Skirt + Ruby Sugarloaf Necklace

The Plaid Skirt - Rachel Green with Ruby Sugarloaf Necklace

You think of Rachel Green, and this is the outfit that pops into your mind. If you needed a reason why 90’s fashion is coming back around, Rachel’s skirt/sweater combo is it. And one piece that’s a perfect complement to Rachel’s plaid skirt is – clearly – a criss-crossed ruby necklace. 

Friends Reunion Jewelry: Joey Tribbiani 

All The Clothes + All The Sapphires Necklace

All The Clothes - Joey Tribbiani with Multi Sapphire Necklace

Joey does have his moments of genius. Remember the time when Chandler stole the chair cushions, so Joey exacted his revenge by wearing ALL of Chandler’s clothes at once? Touché. 

This colorful outfit mash-up deserves nothing less than a sparkling necklace featuring every type of colorful sapphire you can find. Sapphires don’t only come in blue; this gemstone necklace features pink, yellow, and white sapphires! It’s the ideal piece for when you can’t decide which stone is your favorite. Could this necklace BE rocking any more sapphires?

Friends Reunion Jewelry: Monica Geller 

The Red Tank Top + Ruby and Diamond Earrings

Red Tank - Monica Geller with Ruby and Diamond Earrings

Monica’s outfits tend to be two things: high-waisted and simple. And for anyone who’s listening, that formula works. One of her classic styles is also the easiest to recreate nowadays: a ruby-red tank top and old school blue jeans. For a modern add-on, may we suggest some minimalist, yet sparkling, ruby and diamond earrings?

Friends Reunion Jewelry: Chandler Bing 

The Bowling Shirt + Tantalum Men’s Wedding Ring

Bowling Shirt - Chandler Bing with Tantalum Channel-Set Men’s Wedding Ring

Chandler’s style has always been…Chandler. But this particular black-and-white number is sweet for the double-take, and couldn’t be any more perfectly suited for this channel-set honey. This is a men’s wedding ring that’s anything but boring.

Rose Gold Jewelry Pieces You’ll Never Want To Take Off

Rose gold jewelry is trending in 2021 – and we can confidently say that this is a trend that won’t pass. But which rose gold pieces are the most popular right now, and how should you wear them? Read on for the hottest pieces in this warm-toned metal.

Rose Gold Jewelry Pieces You’ll Never Want To Take Off

If you like rose gold, you love it. Rose gold jewelry has emerged as a top contender – for the past few years, these pieces have steadily increased in popularity. And of course they have! Rose gold is a gorgeous jewelry metal with legions of die-hard fans.

What’s Rose Gold?

Rose gold is a yellow gold/copper alloy. The gold gives it a malleability and sheen that’s perfect for jewelry, and the copper gives it its distinctive pink hue. Originally used in the production of Faberge eggs in the 19th century, nowadays rose gold is beloved for both its durability and romantic pink hue. 

Why is Rose Gold Trending?

Rose gold has a light pinkish hue that’s singular in fine jewelry. Its unique color imbues each rose gold jewelry piece with a feminine, vintage feel that’s uncommonly delightful. Plus, this pinkish gold is also one of the strongest! It’s more durable than both white gold and yellow gold. In fact, it’s only second in hardness to platinum! That durability is thanks to its copper content, which incidentally also makes rose gold one of the more affordable jewelry metals. Copper isn’t as expensive as gold, and the gold + copper combo makes rose gold a relatively low-maintenance metal. Rose gold jewelry is the perfect choice for anyone who likes their jewelry to keep a lasting shine with minimal effort. Not only is rose gold a metal that doesn’t require re-plating – it also doesn’t tarnish! 

The only disclaimer we have is that rose gold is not hypoallergenic. Anyone with copper allergies should avoid rose gold.

Rose gold jewelry is both glamorous and practical, making it a favorite of celebs and everyday workers alike. Celebrities like Blake Lively and Alison Brie have fanned the flames of this trend with their gorgeous rose gold engagement rings. So if you want a metal that evokes classic Hollywood – give rose gold jewelry a serious consideration.

What Does Rose Gold Go With?

Don’t be shy to pair rose gold with any gemstone that you particularly enjoy. But there are a few gems that complement rose gold particularly well. 

  • Warm-toned gems: The pink undertones of gemstones like pink sapphire, morganite, red rubies, and purple amethyst complement the pinkish color of rose gold particularly well.
  • Green gems: Green is on the opposite side of the color wheel from pink, and so green gemstones like emerald or peridot look especially striking when set in rose gold jewelry. It’s not a particularly intuitive combination, but trust us – it’s a successful one!
  • Clear & white gems: Neutral-colored gems like diamonds, white sapphires, and pearls enhance the features of any jewelry metal they’re set in. And when set in rose gold jewelry, they evoke whimsy, femininity, and classic romance.

Pearl + Rose Gold Jewelry

Let’s start off with one of our favorite jewelry pairings: rose gold and pearls. Pearls are one of the earliest-worn gemstones; even in antiquity, they were prized for their shine. In ancient Greece, they were said to be the joyous tears of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. And the Romans prized pearls more than diamonds! The Roman elite’s obsession with pearls spurred the development of a thriving pearl trade that spanned Europe and the Middle East. From the Persian Gulf to the Isle of Britain, a steady stream of pearls made its way to Rome. 

And over two thousand years later, pearls are still the gemstone of choice for modern-day royalty!

2021 Fine Jewelry Trends: What To Watch For

Burst into 2021 and leave the past year behind you. All you have to do – slip on some of the new year’s trending styles to get you in the mood to totally own the next 12 months.

2021 Fine Jewelry Trends

After the rollercoaster ride that was 2020, jewelry shopper preferences have turned to the classics: pieces that hold a timeless charm. The fine jewelry trends of 2021 are pieces that put diamonds front-and-center and are particularly popular. Why? They’re universally stylish. They won’t ever trend-out. And they make gifts that never fail to delight! 

We can say with confidence that 2021 will be the year of the lab-grown diamond. 30% more affordable than earth-created diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are chemically and optically identical to traditionally mined diamonds. The only difference is that they’ve created, as you may have guessed, in a laboratory! Yes, and they are 100% pure diamonds.

How it’s done: scientists create these cutting-edge diamonds by first placing a tiny carbon “seed” in a specialized diamond-growing chamber. These chambers simulate the intense pressure and high heat conditions that facilitate diamond growth deep underground. As the heat and pressure work their magic, carbon vapor is gradually applied, microscopic layer by layer, onto the slowly growing diamond seed. After a few months, the lab-grown diamond is ready to be cut and polished! Thus the diamond creation process, which normally occurs on a geologic time scale, is sped up to take only a few months. 

Growing a diamond in a lab uses minimal time and resources compared to mining an earth-created diamond, which is why it costs so much less to produce. Those savings are passed on to you, allowing you to nab an honest-to-goodness diamond for 30% less than you thought you could.

And now the best news of all: our diamond studs and diamond pendants can all be set with lab-grown diamonds! Stick to your budget and still score the carat size of your dreams.

1. Diamond Rings

This just in: rings featuring small, glittering diamonds are trending in 2021. Diamond rings don’t always have to come in the form of wedding or engagement rings. Diamonds’ sparkle makes them perfectly wearable additions to a normal weekday outfit. Plus, they can be worn however you’d like: the diamond rings below are subtle enough to add to a ring stack, yet strong enough to be worn alone for a more minimalist look. They also make the perfect gift if you’re looking for something special, but not too extravagant.
