  • Hatching turtle cufflinks
    that it was a bit of a strange idea Then I looked around on the web and found a huge amount of interest in the subject of baby sea turtles and a surprising amount of jewellery based on them It seems that these little critters have really captured the imagination of hordes of people I think that it s something to do with them being so miniature and so many If you ve seen film of these little guys all emerging from the sand and lunging and flipping themselves frantically towards the sea you can t help but wonder at their energy and determination They engage our emotions as we will them to make it past the stabbing beaks of the seagulls and the other predators that swarm the beach when they emerge and reach the safety of the surf It s only by dint of their huge numbers that any make it to the sea and so it s a drama that arouses both our wonder and our pity As a result it seems that many people celebrate these plucky little heroes and want to display them on jewellery and clothing It could be that they symbolise our own

  • Diamond Russian Wedding band
    offer Ring sizes Coloured Diamonds Diamonds are seldom white In fact so called white diamonds are graded from colourless at D to pale yellow at Z The point at which the colour become detectable by the naked untrained eye is around J See the Diamonds page for more details of diamond grading Natural diamonds are also found in almost all colours from yellow to steel grey to bright blues and oranges The intense colours are very rare and attract high prices with red being the rarest and therefore most expensive These colour variations are due to the presence of natural impurities in the material or imperfections in the crystal lattice that cause the diamond to pass light differently These stones with a colour beyond Z are known in the trade as Fancy diamonds and the best ones are amongst the most expensive stones you can buy I had a client once who announced that she wanted a pink diamond in her engagement ring like Jennifer Lopez She had 500 to spend and I had to point out that a moderately sized pink diamond was going to cost her more than 40 000 She settled for a quite nasty off white stone in the end because it was nice and big White or off white diamonds can also be coloured synthetically after they have been cut and polished The stones in this ring are of this kind To achieve the colour change the diamonds are bombarded with alpha particle radiation which knocks carbon atoms out of their place in the crystal lattice and thus creates areas of the material that refract light differently Easy The colour produced is normally a deep green black or blue and this is further altered by heating in order to mobilise the carbon again and repair

  • Diamond enhancement. Laser drilling and filling
    use of specially formulated glasses with a refractive index approximating that of diamond was pioneered by Zvi Yehuda of Ramat Gan Israel This process is also used to disguise fissures that break the surface of the stone where no drilling is necessary Detecting and enhanced diamond A stone that has been fracture filled is greatly enhanced when viewed with the naked eye but to a trained gemologist the tell tale signs will be obvious The tiny holes will appear as dark circles where they break the surface of the stone and as straight white lines within it The material used to fill the fissures tends to be of a darker colour than the natural stone and this can reduce its colour grade by up to one letter Further a filled stone will sometimes give a coloured flash when turned in the light This is caused by light reflecting off the plane of the fill material and it tends to be of a distinctive colour There is an image of a fracture filled diamond here showing the orange flash that gives it away Problems with enhanced diamonds Views differ within the diamond and jewellery trades as to whether a diamond should be enhanced The purists tend to think of diamonds as almost sacred and feel that they should be inviolate Others think that if the appearance of a stone can be improved then why not All agree however that such enhancements should be declared and not concealed The Gemological Institute of America G I A refuses to issue certificates for filled stones and other labs downgrade the stones to reflect what they think would have been their original clarity There are other problems with enhanced stones when it comes to setting Often heat is used in the manufacturing or repair of

  • Peridot
    seemed to shine more brightly in lamp light and to mimic the hue of the finest emeralds It was popular to in ancient Egypt and in fact the majority of the peridot mined in ancient times came from the island of Zagbargad also known as St John s Island just off the coast of Aswan The island is composed of igneous rocks thrust up from within the Earth s mantle and rich in peridot The pharaohs used slaves to mine the stones and they reportedly died in their hundreds Few ever left the island Systematic mining has continued ever since generally under more benign direction and the island was only abandoned as a commercial mining site in the 1920s Up until recent times all the major specimens of peridot came from this source although smaller stones have been mined worldwide In more recent times a new source of premium rough was discovered on a remote mountain pass in Pakistan 400M above sea level Although the climatic conditions are so severe that the stones can only be mined in summer this new source produced a flood of huge and beautiful stones in the mid 90 s that led to something of a renaissance for peridot Some of the crystals mined there are the best ever seen and apparently there is enough tucked away there to supply the world market indefinitely Like other gems peridot was believed to offer special powers to the wearer Marbodei mentioned in De Lapidibus that peridot would dispel the terrors of the night If it were to be used as a protection from the wiles of evil spirits the stone had to be pierced and strung on the hair of an ass and then attached to the left arm In the Middle Ages the belief persisted that
