Gemstone of the week: Garnet
Love is in the air, and the colour red is everywhere! Yes, its Valentines season. I’m not really into Valentine’s but i don’t begrudge other form enjoying the day and showing their loved ones they care. I’ve got my Valentine Blog swap all sorted! I just have to remember to post it tomorrow so it gets there on time. I’m looking forward to receiving my package too! I’m very excited. More on that when it gets here. Red is one of my favourite colour so i don’t mind every where being red for a few weeks! I’ve chosen GARNET as the gemstone of the week as it is (sometimes) RED!
Garnet is a semi-precious gemstone and I the birthstone for the month of January. Garnet comes in a variety of colours such as yellow, orange, green purple and blue, though Red is the most widely known colour. It’s not just a pretty stone; because it is a strong stone, it is used in industry as an abrasive. It can be mixed with high pressure water to create jets which can cut through steel!
I just sold this beautiful garnet necklace at jewellery party this weekend. My Client described it as elegant and simple.
Hosting a Jewellery party is so much fun and is worth the effort and hard work that goes into organising it. All our guest went left with smiles on their faces and beautiful exclusive jewellery to treasure.
