The True Meaning of November’s Beautiful Birthstones

Brilliant Earth - Tue, 10/27/2020 - 15:30

 

November babies are a lucky bunch, because the November birthstones—citrine and topaz—come in a dazzling array of colors and are relatively affordable.  So go ahead and drop hints about a big piece of birthstone jewelry in the color of your choice!

Shopping for a November birthday?  With a wide range of hues and styles, you’ve got lots of options.  For the low-down on these richly-colored November birthstone gems, read on.

Citrine: Health & Wealth in Rich Colors

Citrine is a quartz gemstone found in golden shades ranging from pale yellow to deep brownish orange. As one of the more affordable gems, citrine makes for a good choice if you want an eye-catching ring or pendant with a larger gemstone. Citrine appears frequently in Edwardian and Art Deco engagement rings.

This gem is also known as “healing quartz,” because legend has it that citrine promotes vitality and energy in whomever wears it. And, according to the Chinese feng shui philosophy, citrine creates wealth and abundance. While we can’t guarantee health and wealth will be gifts with purchase, we do think Fire Citrine Stud Earrings make an excellent birthday present for passionate November-born Scorpios.

The name for “Citrine” comes from the Latin root for “lemon,” and it’s no wonder that this sunny and golden stone has been thought to be a healing crystal that brings happiness, health, energy, and prosperity. For hundreds of years, citrine has also thought to ground and remove negativity — so this is the perfect gemstone for those seeking good vibes only!

Topaz: Symbol of Love in Favorite Hues

Topaz is a hard silicate mineral which gets its color from impurities or defects in its crystal structures, which turn it gorgeous shades of yellow, blue, red, green, brown, violet and pink. Topaz can also be colorless, and colorless topaz is often heated to create blue gems (most blue topaz isn’t natural—the color is created through treatment). The most valuable and expensive shades of topaz are deep orange with pink undertones called Imperial topaz, named after the Russian czars of the 19th century, and yellowish brown hue called sherry topaz.

The topaz birthstone symbolizes love and affection, and is said to bestow strength and intelligence on the person who wears it, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, and a gift of blue topaz is said to be a promise of love and fidelity.

Topaz and Citrine’s Famous Fans

Both of the November birthstones have a royal advocate in the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton (who was born in January, but maybe garnet isn’t her favorite?).  If you glimpsed her engagement photos with Prince William you may have assumed that her glittery pavé drop earrings were diamond, but they were actually made of white topaz (the “Hope Egg” design by Links of London). The Duchess also has a favorite pair of cushion-cut citrine drop earrings by Kiki McDonough, a popular British (but of course) jewelry designer, and has appeared in white topaz and blue topaz earrings by McDonough.  We think topaz and citrine are a perfect fit with the Duchess’s down-to-earth elegance, because they’re nearly as dazzling as more expensive precious gems but with a more sensible price tag.

Citrine has also had bursts of popularity in the Victorian Era, when queen Victoria added citrine elements to her her collection of royal jewelry. In the golden age of early Hollywood, global stars like Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford famously wore glamorous citrine pieces.

Settings with surprise or hidden diamond accents are particularly popular, with styles like our Waverly Diamond Ring and Demi Diamond Ring topping their list. The Waverly Diamond Ring setting features a seamlessly sparkling look with pavé diamond accents adorning the band, gallery, and wrapping the center gem in a glittering halo. The Demi Diamond Ring is a fan favorite with a hidden halo of diamonds resting underneath the center gem.

One of a Kind

It’s no surprise that unique stand-out styles would be favored by hip and cultured Atlanta. Atlantans love our Alvadora Diamond Ring – with 10% of all sales for this setting coming from this region! This truly exceptional vintage-inspired ring features a bezel-set center gem surrounded by lavishly detailed latticework and a halo of shimmering diamonds. The uniquely beautiful Primrose Diamond Ring is also a local favorite with its floral diamond clusters that embrace the glistening center gemstone. Beaded detailing adds an air of timeless elegance to this show-stopping ring.

Staying Golden


Our customers in the Atlanta area love the warm hues of 18K yellow gold and favor this metal type over others.

Uniquely Modern Black Fine Jewelry

Brilliant Earth - Wed, 10/21/2020 - 21:29

“Women who wear black live colorful lives.” — Neiman Marcus

One of our favorite rising trends that feels perfect for this time of year is black diamond and black rhodium jewelry. This modern and edgy look is perfect for anyone who favors minimalist style, those who are interested in a modern twist to ornate vintage looks, and everyone in between.

Diamonds can come in virtually every color in the rainbow, and black diamonds are becoming more and more popular. Because of their composition they are exceptionally durable, and their dark hue makes them particularly distinct and unique.

Black rhodium jewelry is another unique and beautiful way to incorporate a dark glimmer to your style. Although rhodium is typically white and used to create the lustrous finish for white gold, black rhodium is created with a special alloy to make it have a gunmetal dark appearance. Those who choose this metal finish love the way the black rhodium creates a dark canvas for their diamond or gemstone accents to pop.

Read on to discover some of our favorite black jewelry styles!

Round Black Diamond Stud Earrings

These eye-catching earrings feature a matched pair of round black diamonds secured in classic basket settings. These stud earrings are available in 18K white gold or 18K yellow gold, depending on your preference.

Pavé Bar Black Diamond Earrings

Two sleek rose gold bar studs glimmer with bordered pavé-set black diamonds for a chic take on a classic look. These black diamond earrings are perfect for everyday wear and are a unique addition to any earring stack.

Black Rhodium Cadenza Halo Diamond Engagement Ring

Glittering diamonds and light-catching milgrain form an ornate halo around the center gem in this breathtaking vintage-inspired ring. Black rhodium contrasts with the marquise-framed diamonds for a unique look.

Black Rhodium Nouveau Diamond Engagement Ring

This exquisite ring features shimmering pavé diamonds that form a chevron-shaped band above the center gemstone. Black rhodium contrasts with sparkling diamond accents and the center diamond or gemstone.

Horizon Black Diamond Wedding Ring

Stylish and edgy, this modern wedding band features a thin vertical row of black diamonds against a matte brushed finish. The softened inside edge provides increased comfort.

Black Rhodium Demi Diamond Engagement Ring

This eye-catching black rhodium engagement ring features a glittering hidden halo of diamonds that wraps around the center gem for an extra pop of shimmer.

8 Unique October Birthstone Gifts

Brilliant Earth - Thu, 10/01/2020 - 15:22

 

If you’re holiday or birthday shopping for someone born in October, a piece of jewelry featuring October’s birthstone makes for a timeless treasure.

October has two birthstones, opal and tourmaline. Opals are popularly known for their milky, rainbow-colored glow and fire. With hues ranging across the whole color spectrum, opals fit well with many different tastes. In the past, opals were believed to symbolize purity and hope. Because of their unique smooth but fiery look, opals are most often polished in the cabochon style — a style where a gem is shaped and polished instead of faceted.

Like opal, tourmaline is also admired for its wide variety of colors. According to ancient legend, the stone traveled along a rainbow collecting all of the rainbow’s colors, which is why tourmaline is found in such a multitude of hues. It has also been believed to strengthen mind, body, and spirit. Although this beautiful gem comes in a variety of tones, pink tourmalines are the most popular option for October birthstone birthday gifts.

Both of these gemstones have inspired jewelry makers for many years, resulting in beautiful vintage pieces that span the decades. These unique pieces are perfect for the October-born friends and family members in your life. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite opal and tourmaline gifts below as inspiration!

Your Questions About Lab Diamonds Answered

Brilliant Earth - Wed, 09/30/2020 - 20:27

Lab diamonds continue to rise in popularity, and this growing interest brings with it an increased amount of questions!

To dispel misunderstandings and debunk some lab diamond myths, we’ve pulled together our customers’ most common questions about lab diamonds.

Question 1: Are lab diamonds real or are lab created diamonds fake? Are lab created diamonds the same as cubic zirconia?

Answer: Lab created diamonds are real diamonds! Lab diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds, and are not diamond simulants like moissanite or cubic zirconia. Diamond simulants look similar to diamonds, but are not true carbon crystals, and most people will be able to tell the difference between diamonds and cubic zirconia or moissanite with the naked eye. The human eye cannot distinguish between a lab diamond and a naturally mined diamond, however, since they are visually and physically identical. Lab grown diamonds can be distinguished from natural diamonds only when specialized equipment is used by professional gemologists to test them.

Question 2: What are lab grown diamonds? How are lab diamonds made?

Answer: Lab created diamonds are grown from the tiny carbon seeds of pre-existing diamonds. Advanced technology – either extreme pressure and heat or a special deposition process known as CVD – mimics the natural method of diamond formation within the earth’s mantle. These man made diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since they are made of the same material as natural diamonds, they offer the same brilliance and hardness of natural diamonds.

Question 3: Are lab diamonds good quality?

Answer: Like naturally mined diamonds, lab diamonds cover the entire spectrum of diamond quality. You can find lab created diamonds of every cut, color, clarity, and carat weight, including flawless white diamonds with no inclusions. Since they are chemically the same as natural diamonds, they do not have lower durability and will not get cloudy over time.

Question 4: How much are lab diamonds? Are lab diamonds cheaper than natural diamonds?

Answer: Lab created diamonds offer excellent value and are slightly more affordable than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality. Because of this, lab diamonds can be a great option for engagement ring shoppers looking to get a larger center diamond within their budget. Additionally, fancy colored lab diamonds sell at comparatively reasonable prices compared to their natural colored diamond counterparts, making it more affordable to opt for something like a pink, blue, or yellow diamond.

Question 5: Are lab diamonds GIA certified? Can you appraise lab grown diamonds?

Answer: Lab created diamonds are certified by a number of the world’s leading gem grading labs including GIA, IGI, HRD, and GCAL. Lab created diamonds available for purchase should always come with a gem certification identifying them as laboratory grown. Lab grown diamonds can also easily be appraised and insured, just like naturally mined diamonds.

Question 6: How are lab diamonds different? Why would I choose a lab grown diamond?

Answer: There are many factors that make lab diamonds an attractive choice for diamond shoppers. As previously mentioned, lab diamonds are usually more affordable than comparable natural diamonds. For couples looking to optimize on the size of the center diamond for their engagement ring, this can mean that a lab diamond is the best choice for them. Others are drawn to lab grown diamonds because they are a responsible choice given that no new mining is required. If a mined diamond is the right choice for you, however, our natural diamonds are Beyond Conflict Free and sourced from specific mines that have demonstrated their commitment to following internationally recognized labor, trade, & environmental standards.
