October birthstones

Celebrate October with Dazzling Opal and Tourmaline

October Birthstone

October’s birthstones are two of the most versatile gemstones. Prized for their range of colors, opal and tourmaline have inspired jewelers, poets, and artists. Shakespeare called opal “the queen of gems” and Pliny the Elder wrote that within its depths, you could see “the living fire of the ruby, the glorious purple of the amethyst, the sea green of the emerald, all glittering together in an incredible mixture of light.” Opal’s unique play of color is caused by the way silica combines with water in the cavities of ancient rock formations.

Edwardian Splendor

She was Lily Elsie, a popular English stage star, best known for her role in 1907’s musical comedy, “The Merry Widow.” Lily began her career […]

Shopping in Style During Spring in Shoreditch

According the Middlesex County Justices, Shoreditch in the East End of London was once a haven for “dissolute, loose, and insolent people” or, as they are otherwise known, actors. Because Shoreditch was outside the jusrisdiction of the City of London’s puritanical leaders, it was an ideal location for plays like Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet to […]

True Blue Engagement Ring of the Week

Sapphires have long inspired cultures across the globe. In fact the word “sapphire” itself is a result of the jewel’s global reputation.
