Valentine’s Day is upon us.
It is time to show your loved ones what they really mean to you. Whether you love or hate this holiday, Valentine’s Day 2016 is gaining traction on our calendars at a rapid pace.
Never fear, A.JARON fine jewelry is ALWAYS here to help you.
Do yourself a favor and please avoid the nasty mysterious drug store chocolates and singing teddy bears.
Yes, red roses are beautiful… for about 5 days and then they start to fall apart.
Why not gift the love of your life with something that lasts a bit longer?
We have three ideas for you:
We can help you find something sparkly for your Love. We carry some of the finest non-heart-shaped jewelry on the planet. Your Valentine does NOT need another horribly-made heart shaped necklace that will fall apart in 5 seconds. How about a timeless amethyst bracelet which can be worn everyday? Your Love will enjoy the amethyst bracelet as it sparkles and shines so nicely in the office lighting?
Or, how about some BonBons that will last longer than one week? We create custom BonBon rings year round. They do not melt, or make anyone feel guilty about having more than three, or have terrible- guess what flavor this is supposed to be- taste. The BonBon Ring is a fabulous statement ring which can be worn everyday.
A.JARON Fine jewelry also offers world famous Wishlist service.
Don’t know what to get you Valentine? Afraid she might hate what you pick out? Are you just a terrible gift-buyer? That’s okay, we forgive you and we will not hold it against you. Tell your Significant Other to come in to A.JARON Studio, have a glass of champagne and shop our selection. We will then make a list of your Love’s jewelry loves and then help you pick an amazing piece based on their selections. We almost make it too easy.
Do you have a Valentine that doesn’t like traditional jewelry? Do you consider your Valentine to be a bit edgy? Does your Valentine like skulls? We have a nice variety of unconventional jewelry which would fit nicely into your Love’s jewelry wardrobe. Angel wings, skulls, crowns and snakes- we have pieces of jewelry featuring all of these symbols. Amanda is always available to design custom pieces as well. If you see a design, an image or even a tattoo that you would like to use as inspiration for a design- bring it to A.JARON Studio. Amanda Jaron will custom design the jewelry of your dreams and fantasies.
If you are considering an upcoming Engagement, A.JARON Fine Jewelry would LOVE to help you through the diamond selection process and the ring design process. Amanda Jaron has over 100 custom engagement ring designs in her portfolio.
She welcomes all design requests, no idea is too big or wild and no detail too small.
Call 239-596-8610 to schedule your Engagement Ring design appointment. We enjoy seeing couples in love and ready to take the plunge.
Now that Valentine’s Day 2016 is completely figured out- let A.JARON Fine Jewelry know what else we can do to help you.
How about Bon Bons? What is your favorite kind of petit four?
How about a strawberry cupcake ring?
Or a Lime mini-cupcake ring?
We also have cherry Bon Bon earrings.
As summer approaches, our thoughts and swimsuit bodies turn to the Sun.
We toast and tan ourselves on beach vacations, island getaways and cruises in the summer.
There has also been a surge of golden gowns making their way down the step and repeat of exclusive red carpet events.
At the 2015 Met Gala there were 6 golden gowns which walked the red carpet. Count it- Six of the same hue of gown that was not black or red. This is a very exciting moment for all that is gold.
More importantly it means that yellow gold is truly back. And it is being worn in the most bold way possible. Just look at Rhianna’s Guo Pei Haute Couture gown which she donned at the 2015 Met Gala; the gown inspired many in the fashion world and also many humorous photoshop memes. What is fashion and art if we can’t have a little bit of fun with it? I even read somewhere that Rhianna wore The Sun.
Here are the pieces of A.JARON fine jewelry, that we would pair with each of the golden gowns shown on the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala.
Stay Golden A.JARON fans!
Emerald Education, History and Lore of Emeralds
As the birthstone for May, the emerald, a symbol of rebirth, is believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. Emerald, derived from the word smaragdus, meaning green in Greek, was mined in Egypt as early as 330 B.C. Today, most of the world’s emeralds are mined in Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan, and Zambia. The availability of high-quality emerald is limited; consequently, treatments to improve clarity are performed regularly.
Emerald’s lush green has soothed souls and excited imaginations since antiquity. Rome’s Pliny the Elder described emerald in his Natural History, published in the first century AD: “…nothing greens greener” was his verdict. He described the use of emerald by early lapidaries, who “have no better method of restoring their eyes than by looking at the emerald, its soft, green color comforting and removing their weariness and lassitude.” Even today, the color green is known to relieve stress and eye strain.
There are other green gems, like tourmaline and peridot, but emerald is the one that’s always associated with the lushest landscapes and the richest greens. Ireland is the Emerald Isle. Seattle, in the US state of Washington, is the Emerald City. Thailand’s most sacred religious icon is called the Emerald Buddha, even though it’s carved from green jadeite.
The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating from at least 330 BC into the 1700s. Cleopatra was known to have a passion for emerald, and used it in her royal adornments.
Emeralds from what is now Colombia were part of the plunder when sixteenth-century Spanish explorers invaded the New World. The Incas had already been using emeralds in their jewelry and religious ceremonies for 500 years. The Spanish, who treasured gold and silver far more than gems, traded emeralds for precious metals. Their trades opened the eyes of European and Asian royalty to emerald’s majesty.
Emerald is the most famous member of the beryl family. Legends endowed the wearer with the ability to foresee the future when emerald was placed under the tongue, as well as to reveal truth and be protected against evil spells. Emerald was once also believed to cure diseases like cholera and malaria. Wearing an emerald was believed to reveal the truth or falseness of a lover’s oath as well as make one an eloquent speaker.
Legend also states that emerald was one of the four precious stones given by God to King Solomon. These four stones were said to have endowed the king with power over all creation.
Its color reflects new spring growth, which makes it the perfect choice of a birthstone for the month of May. It’s also the gemstone for twentieth and thirty-fifth wedding anniversaries.
