    Captivating Citrine

    The mellow gold color of Citrine captures attention and brightens our moods. Did you know that November’s birthstones are citrine and yellow topaz?  Did you know that citrine most often comes from Brazil, but since natural citrine is so rare, almost all of the Brazilian material is heat-treated amethyst? Natural citrine can also be found in the Ural Mountains of Russia, in Dauphine, France, and in Madagascar. This gem is a sunny quartz whose name comes from the French word for “lemon”.It is a wearable, affordable, and fashionable stone with shimmering yellows that draw the eyes and captivate the viewer. If you’re feeling down or uninspired, some say you should put on some Citrine. It is believed this gemstone promotes creativity, helps with your personal clarity, and eliminates self-destructive tendencies. In ancient times, citrine was carried as a protection against deadly snake venom and evil thoughts. Maybe we should wear more down here in Florida! :) You November-born folks out there will love this genuine checkerboard golden citrine and diamond ring for only $325 in 14K yellow gold….but you don’t have to be born in November to love it! Citrine is a beautiful staple in anyone’s collection!

    Rebecca Hook Jewelry

    We are so pleased to introduce our newest line in our stores, Rebecca Hook Jewelry. From the wrought iron balconies of Charleston, the vibrant fabrics of East Africa, and the dogwood blossoms of Kentucky, Rebecca Hook draws from the colors and textures of her own experiences to inspire her collections. Rebecca Hook spent her early years around her parents’ jewelry business in Florida where she learned firsthand the intricacies of jewelry design and manufacturing. After earning a degree in International Business from the College of Charleston, as well as studying the techniques of jewelry design at the American Jewelers Institute of Portland, Oregon, Rebecca spent the next several years traveling from Spain to Australia, and finally settling down in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky. Rebecca’s designs are strong in form, yet delicate in nature and speak to the romantic spirit in every woman. Each piece, crafted with precious metals and semi-precious gemstones, remains affordable for anyone who wants to distinguish herself. We are honored to be one of the stores carrying her unique line. Check out one of our favorite statement pieces from her collection, the amazonite three strand necklace with her trademark dogwood clasp.
