Precious and semi-precious gemstones are popular choices in all jewellery, whether it be for birthday gifts or engagement rings.
Throughout history gemstones have played a pivotal role in human culture across the world. Gemstones often play a leading role in myths as well as stories that have captivated us throughout their existence. We are reminded of dragons perched on great hills of jewels and gemstones adorning ancient Egyptian pharaohs from head to toe. This may have something to do with their association with healing and mystical vibrations. Alternatively, it could be because of their undeniably beguiling aesthetics.
Gemstones are formed deep beneath the earth’s surface, much like diamonds, but filled with intriguing abilities. For thousands of years, gemstones have been believed to have metaphysical powers that affect health, mood and even emotions.
These colourful beauties are loved the world over and adorn some of the most revered jewellery pieces like Empress Josephine’s (wife to Emperor Napoleon) tear drop shaped sapphire and diamond ring or Jackie O’s emerald and diamond engagement ring from John F. Kennedy.
