If your birthday falls in the month of August, you’re lucky to have two birthstones: peridot and spinel. These unheralded beauties offer countless pairing options and make unique statement pieces as well as dainty accents.

PERIDOT

Peridot is one of the few gemstones that comes in a single color — a gorgeous light green unaffected by artificial light. Peridot’s hardness is similar to quartz, so it’s an excellent choice for jewelry that gets daily wear.

The stone has been featured in fine jewelry for thousands of years. The ancient Romans nicknamed peridot the “evening emerald” because its color didn’t darken at night, and it was reportedly Cleopatra’s favorite gemstone.

HOW TO WEAR PERIDOT

Peridot looks best with warm skin tones and hazel or green eyes. The bright green stone pops when worn against white, beige, black or navy and adds a touch of color to simple, streamlined ensembles.

Since peridot mirrors the vibrant color of summer leaves and grass, it’s also perfect for creating an earthy, nature-inspired look. Pair it with earth tones such as browns, greens or yellows.

Finally, mixing and matching trendy stackable peridot rings or tennis bracelets with other brightly colored gems is an easy, fun way to incorporate this stone into your wardrobe.

SPINEL

This lesser-known gemstone occurs in a range of colors, including rose pink, deep red, lavender, violet, light and dark blue, orange, yellow, brown and black. Spinel has been mined for centuries, but it was often mistaken for other gemstones. One of the most famous spinel gemstones, known by the misnomer “Black Prince’s Ruby” due to its ruby-red hue, was set into England’s state crown and housed in the Tower of London. The most desirable spinel gemstones are vivid red, cobalt blue, bright pink or bright orange.

Spinel is considered to be a soothing stone, possessing calming energy, and is recommended for those suffering from stress. It’s also used to increase physical energy, vitality and stamina.

HOW TO WEAR SPINEL

Red-hued spinel stones are most striking on cool skin tones. Spinel and other red or pink gemstones are most flattering to brown eyes and also serve as a stunning contrast to blue eyes.

Because red spinel looks so similar to ruby, it can be styled just the way you would your favorite ruby jewelry. Try pairing this common shade of spinel with black dresses, summer stripes, florals, formal gowns and jeans and tees.

Black spinel looks sophisticated and subtle when paired with other neutrals such as beiges, whites, creams and grays. If you have long hair, wear it up to show off black spinel earrings.

Any cool blue shade of spinel will pop next to warm colors such as yellow, orange and red. Blue spinel also works well with other shades of blue and navy.

While diamonds and gemstones are the stars of the show when it comes to fine jewelry design, the precious metals that make up the setting are just as important to a piece’s look and quality. There’s no better foundation for your most treasured jewels than platinum and 18-karat gold.

18-KARAT GOLD

A karat is a measurement of a metal’s purity. 18-karat gold contains 75 percent gold and 25 percent alloyed metals such as silver, palladium, platinum and nickel to make it harder and more durable. And because 18-karat gold is 75 percent pure gold, it has a heavier, more luxurious feel than jewelry with less karats. This means that when you compare 18-karat and 14-karat rings with the exact same dimensions, the 18-karat ring will be heavier.

18-karat gold is the most popular karat weight for gold jewelry, as its strength prevents the prongs from weakening and the stones falling out. 18-karat gold is also less likely to tarnish.

Natural gold and color-saturated alloys are what give yellow gold its luxurious shine. The higher the number of karats, the deeper the rich, buttery yellow tone will be. Since 18-karat gold contains less other metals, its color typically looks richer and deeper than its 14-karat counterpart. The soft patina that develops over time is also specific to 18-karat yellow gold versus the lighter 14-karat gold.

ROSE GOLD

Rose gold first became fashionable in 19th-century Russia, which is why it was originally called “Russian gold.” By the time the Victorian era rolled around, rose gold jewelry dominated the jewelry scene along with yellow gold.   18-karat rose gold is actually an alloy containing 75 percent gold and 15 percent copper or some combination of copper and silver. Because rose gold is by definition an alloy of multiple metals, there is no such thing as “pure” rose gold.

Rose gold’s recent style comeback is the result of a few different factors. Rose gold lacks the more reflective “bling” effect demonstrated by metals like white gold and platinum, making it an understated, elegant alternative. Its romantic pink hue also happens to effortlessly flatter most skin tones.  What once was an uncommon metal worn only by Russian elites can now be found in watches, bangles and even engagement rings. In fact, this trend is so popular, we believe we’ll be looking at the world through rose-colored glasses for years to come.

PLATINUM

Platinum is the most precious metal in jewelry. Like gold, it is rare and heavy, but it is 60 percent heavier and 30 times more rare than gold. Because of its purity, platinum is hypoallergenic, so it’s perfect for people who are allergic to other metals. Platinum prongs offer excellent protection for diamonds, so your stones are less likely to budge when they’re set in platinum.

But platinum does more than just protect diamonds and gemstones. It makes very white diamonds appear bright by enhancing their brilliance. Platinum won’t cast colors into a diamond, and because it’s naturally white, it won’t fade or change colors over time.

You’ll find a lot of vintage platinum jewelry that looks almost the same as the day it was made — with stones intact — because of the its strength and durability. And when you consider the fact that the jewelry you buy today might someday become the heirloom pieces treasured by future generations, platinum is a beautiful choice.

october birthstone opal

Those lucky enough to be born in October have two birthstones: tourmaline and opal. Tourmaline is a popular stone because it comes in a variety of stunning colors (in fact, its name means “mixed stone” in Singhalese), while opals each have their own one-of-a-kind color pattern, making them totally unique.

TOURMALINE

Egyptian legend has it that tourmaline is found in all colors because it traveled along a rainbow and gathered every color. Tourmaline is believed to strengthen the body and spirit, especially the nervous system. It is also said to inspire creativity and was used as a talisman by artists and writers.

Tourmaline is a favorite among jewelry designers and collectors today because of its variety of colors (often found within the same gemstone), including cranberry red, hot magenta, bubblegum pink, peach and orange, canary yellow, mint, grass and forest green, ocean blue and violet.

FUN FACTS ABOUT TOURMALINE

-Tourmaline is found in many regions of the world, including Brazil, Afghanistan, East Africa and the United States.

-Bi-color or tri-color gems are formed in different color combinations such as the watermelon tourmaline. It features a pink center, a white ring and a green edge—just like its namesake.

-Tourmalines can become electrically charged when heated and then allowed to cool.

-The stones are thought to relieve stress, cleanse the mind and enhance energy.

OPALS

In ancient times, the opal was known as the Queen of Gems because it contained the colors of all other gems. They were greatly valued by ancient monarchs for their protective powers. Opals were worn as jewelry and in crowns to ward off evil and to protect the wearer’s eyesight.

Today, opals are prized for their versatility—with so many color combinations, they can be worn with a variety of wardrobe options. An opal’s beauty is the product of the contrast between its color and its background. Some individuals prefer the calming flashes of blues and greens, while others love the vibrant reds and yellows.

FUN FACTS ABOUT OPALS

-In 2008, NASA announced the discovery of opal deposits on Mars!

-Opals are the modern anniversary gifts for the 14th and 34th year of marriage.

-Opals are associated with purity, hope and innocence.

-Australia is home to 97 percent of the opals found in the world. The other 3 percent can be found in Mexico, Brazil, China, Guatemala, Honduras, Hungary, Japan and the United States.

-Australia’s Lightning Ridge is known for its rare and stunning black opals.

-The most precious opals display broad patterns covering the surface and all the colors of the rainbow.

Eiseman Ruby Birthstone

If you were lucky enough to be born in July, the ruby is your birthstone. Said to represent love, passion, courage, heat and power, rubies have been the prized possessions of emperors and kings throughout the ages.

Eiseman Ruby Birthstone

It has been said that the ruby’s red glow comes from an internal flame that cannot be extinguished, making it a symbol of everlasting love. Legends also say that, when worn on the left hand, a ruby will bring good fortune to its wearer. Given that rubies are rarer and more expensive than diamonds (and the mythology about love and passion associated with them), they make perfect engagement rings and anniversary bands.

7.04ct_vivid_red_oval_ruby_ring.jpgCoined the King of Gems, the ruby is one of the most highly prized gems throughout history—but that doesn’t mean they should only be brought out for special occasions. Any day you wear a ruby becomes a special occasion!

Eiseman Ruby Birthstone- Bracelet

Fun Facts About Rubies

  • The word “ruby” comes from the Latin word  rubens, which means red.
  • In 2011, an 8.24-carat ruby ring belonging to Elizabeth Taylor sold at auction for $4.2 million, with the price per carat amounting to approximately $500,000.
  • A ruby is a traditional gift for 15th or 40th anniversaries.
  • Ancient tribes believed that a ruby thrown into a pot of water would cause it to boil instantly.
  • Rubies are extremely strong, registering 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness. They are as strong as sapphires and only a tad softer than diamonds.
  • The history of ruby mining dates back more than 2,500 years.
  • Rubies without imperfections are exceptionally rare and command prices even higher than diamonds of a similar weight and quality.
MARSALA

Somewhere between wine and terracotta lives Marsala—an earthy, reddish hue that’s been named Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015.

MARSALA

The Pantone company, which touts itself as the “global authority on color,” says: “Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind, and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

MARSALA

Equally at home in traditional or modern designs, Marsala is also a versatile color for weddings. And even though deep red is usually associated with fall and winter weddings, Marsala paired with blush and ivory makes a gorgeous palette for any season. Pair the Color of the Year with yellow and gold for a springy look, or with bright corals and oranges for a summery atmosphere. Together with pink, gray and cream, Marsala feels very romantic. The color has a sophisticated earthiness, which makes it look beautiful with a variety of metallics like gold, rose gold and copper.

MARSALA

When it comes to wedding flowers, bright pops of Marsala garden roses and hydrangeas are stunning. Dark red peonies and dahlias in lush bouquets full of dark, leafy greens (we love them layered with eucalyptus leaves) evoke a romantic quality. And Marsala dahlias make beautiful boutonnieres. Put flowers in your hair and handfuls of wine-colored petals in the tiny hands of your flower girl.

MARSALA

A gorgeous white bridal gown surrounded by Marsala bridesmaids’ dresses is sure to draw the eye. And a groom and groomsmen in muted blue suits with Marsala ties and matching boutonnieres would look utterly charming. Add touches of Marsala to your reception with linens, chair ties and candles. Artfully arranged seating cards and wedding favors—like bottles of wine with personalized labels—can also play into the theme.

MARSALA

Finally, this lush and inviting color looks good against every skin tone. Sephora already has an entire collection of shadows, blushes, lipsticks and nail polishes dedicated to it! And last—but never least—add some elegant, unexpected bridal jewelry in the form of Marsala-toned rings, earrings and necklaces.
