Gemstones To Inspire Your Vacation Dreams — Let’s Go!

Pack your bags, load your car, and hit the road to head to the airport, and let’s take that much-needed time to de-stress and refresh. Let’s pretend, however briefly, that these past 16 months reside in the distant past — barely a flicker in our memories. We’ll make this summer trip particularly joyous and meaningful.

So let’s talk about gemstones that will brighten your customer’s vacay wardrobe, and afterward, summon memories of their wonderful time away. Select findings for a pendant, earrings, or bracelet dangles, choose family jewelry mountings to celebrate your holiday destination, or go the custom design route, and the sky’s the limit.

Beach Bliss

Famous Aquamarine Gemstones

Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf Coast, Caribbean: Summertime and beaches are meant for each other. The lapping water or white-cap waves, the vast sky, breezes, tropical foliage, and the sand beneath my feet that always ends up in the condo — they put you back in touch with nature, serenity, and joy. You sigh and relax.

Customers can keep their beach bliss long after the vacation. Create eye-catching jewelry with water-inspired beauties such as turquoise, coral, aquamarine, green moissanite, and zircon, or paint a sunset with rose quartz, ametrine, tanzanite, and orange garnet. Keep the sand between your toes with rutilated quartz or citrine cabochons, our new brown moissanite, a top light brown, or champagne diamonds.

Mountain Romance

Rutilated Quartz Gemstones

Summer in the mountains offers stunning vistas and refreshingly cool days. Distant snow-caps, green fields with wildflowers, rushing streams, deep lakes, and tempting trails beckon you outside. You fill your days with biking, horseback riding, rock climbing hiking the surrounding heights, and photographing all that you see. Later in the day, relax with a soak in hot springs. All the activities and vivid beauty restore your spirits.

Customers can capture the thrill and freedom of their mountain vacation with durable gemstones: sapphire, ruby, colored moissanite, emerald, aquamarine, morganite, topaz, and tourmaline. To explore the colors of mountain rock, go neutral with smoky or tourmalinated quartz. Or select our Misty, Ash, Marbled Gray, and black Specialty Diamonds.

What to Wear on Summer Vacation

We all deserve a few days off! And with summer in full swing, it’s likely you’ve booked your trip and are already counting down the days. Though you may dread packing, time draws near to your relaxing getaway. Which vacation jewelry will you bring to compliment your sundresses, shorts, and sandals? Here are a few tips and suggestions on what to pack this summer–

DO

  • Bring your less expensive jewelry. Leave your finest pieces at home and only pack jewelry that you could absolutely live without just in case something gets lost along the way — especially true if you have kids.
  • Speaking of misplaced belongings, be sure to pack your jewelry in your carry-on when taking flight. Checked luggage is more likely to get lost in the netherworld between flights, so keep your valuables nearby.
  • Try this jewelry roll for transporting your vacation jewelry. This nifty case rolls

    up nicely, keeping your valuables discreet and well-organized. And let’s face it, if all your jewelry doesn’t fit in this case, you’re not packing for vacation, you’re moving away – which isn’t a bad thing.

  • Pack funky pieces with eccentric flair. Vacations are all about escaping the norm, so adorn yourself with jazzy jewelry that allows you to be whoever you want when touring uncharted territory.
  • Wear lots of sunscreen. But beware, its oiliness may cause rings to slip right off your finger.

DON’T

  • Again, don’t bring your most expensive jewelry or any piece you aren’t ultimately prepared to lose. You might want to leave your three carat engagement ring home and in its place, wear a simple silver band.
  • Don’t pack your vacation jewelry in Ziploc bags. Your jewelry needs to breathe in a cool, dry place that’s well ventilated. See the jewelry roll mentioned above.
  • Don’t wear your jewelry in the pool; Chlorine can damage jewelry. Even if you’re only sporting it poolside, be sure to thoroughly clean your adornments afterward and dry them well.
  • Salt and sand aren’t good for your jewelry, either. Sand is abrasive. It can degrade metal finishes and scratch softer gemstones. Also, salt corrodes jewelry, especially rose gold which contains copper alloy.
  • To be safe, remove your jewelry before hanging out near the water.
