  • The use of plant and animal motifs in jewelry designs is an ancient historic theme, prevalent since the time of ancient Egyptians and Greeks, and used during the various jewelry periods in history, reaching its climax during the Art Nouveau period at the turn of the 20th century between 1890 to 1905, and continued to prevail well into the 20th century, with modern jewelry designers like Jean Schlumberger, Paulding Farnham and others elevating the art to sophisticated and refined levels, receiving international acclamation. At every public auction conducted by the leading auction houses such as Christie's and Sotheby's such jewelry pieces incorporating plant and animal motifs, had featured and performed impressively. Creating a thread to bring together such impressive pieces following the success of the Kashmir sapphire, Ceylon sapphire, and Alexandrite threads, occurred to me as a regular participant in updating the successful threads.

  • Hello,

    I'm looking for a Demantoid Garnet; anywhere between 1 & 2 carats - to use for an engagement ring. I'm not particular in regards to point of origin or any inclusions - however I want it to be more green than yellow or brown. And of course genuine. Any cut will do. Please let me know what you can find.

    Thank you!

  • Fire Agate helps manifest Divine guidance through action, and assists
    one in taking decisive action in unclear circumstances. It increases
    passion, emotions, and reconnection to one's deepest desires, and
    provides the courage to take risks to fulfill those promptings. It is
    ideal to banish the stupor of a humdrum routine, and when one is wearing
    Fire Agate, it can also stir the emotions of others, sometimes
    facilitating attraction between mates.

    Fire agate can help with spiritual advancement and progression. It promotes and
    enhances energy, including meditation, ritual, and spiritual healing
    energies. It also balances masculine (active) and feminine (receptive)
    energies.

    Fire Agate, known as the spiritual flame of
    absolute perfection, carries a great mystery locked inside its deep
    brown crystal. You need only touch the stone and fiery embers ignite.

    writing and speaking. It can also heighten…
  • In spiritual work, hematite is an excellent stone to help keep
    yourself also connected to the Earth plane. Hematite is a stone that is
    most commonly used to ground and for protection.

    Hematite helps to absorb negative energy and calms in times of stress or worry.
    Hematite is a very protective stone and is great to carry to help you
    stay grounded in many situations. Hematite is also good for working with
    the Root Chakra, helping to transform negative energies into a more
    positive vibration. Those in relationships can benefit from the
    cooperation vibe coming from Hematite.

    Carry Hematite when in need of balance and equilibrium, or when having difficulty
    focusing energies. Hematite is known to improve your mental capability.
    It provides the person confidence to complete his dreams without feeling
    insecure about what others might think.

    Rainbow Hemitite enhances mental capabilities & original thinking. Dissolves negativity & reduces stress.

    Frankly speaking Joan your choice seems to be in perfect order. Schlumberger's ruby, diamond and gold pineapple brooch is indeed fantastic. The pineapple appears to be carved out of a single large crystal of ruby and is topped by another cabochon-cut…
