As August comes around, we’re here to introduce the birthstone for this month: Peridot.
Peridots are one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color: an olive-green. The intensity and tint of the green, however, depends on the percentage of iron in the crystal structure, so the color of individual Peridot gems can vary from yellow, to olive, to brownish-green.
Precious jewelry pieces are vibrant, strong pieces that add a lot of style with a touch of personality to your look. But with so many choices and stones available, finding the right piece can be a real challenge.To inspire your search, here are a few pieces for those who want to upgrade their style, without breaking the bank.

A gemstone will last a lifetime and should be selected with care. The right stone should resonate with your personality by bringing beauty and joy into your life while the wrong stone is likely to end up buried at the bottom of your jewelry box. Take the time to do a bit of research and reflect upon your needs, wants, and personality to ensure that you end up with the perfect stone.
To help set you on the path to your ideal gemstone, here is a guide to the four most common precious stones.
So this is really big news as per FTC(Federal Trade Commission) a lab grown diamond can now be called Diamond, it is not synthetic but actual Diamond which can be categorized as Cultured Diamond.
The FTC’s previous definition of a diamond stated: “A diamond is a natural mineral consisting essentially of pure carbon crystallized in the isometric system.” This is no longer applicable, the commission said Tuesday. The new listing does not include the word “natural.”
“When the commission first used this definition in 1956, there was only one type of diamond product on the market — natural stones mined from the earth,” the FTC said. “Since then, technological advances have made it possible to create diamonds in a laboratory. These stones have essentially the same optical, physical and chemical properties as mined diamonds. Thus, they are diamonds.”
In the ever-changing jewelry industry, new techniques and ideas keep coming up and throw few challenges at our door steps. One challenge in particular is: what is better, natural or lab grown diamonds?
The History of BirthStone
The idea of birthstones – a gemstone assigned to each month of the year – is thought to be an ancient one, and scholars trace it back to the Breastplate of Aaron that was described in the book of Exodus in the Bible. The Breastplate was a religious garment set with twelve gemstones that represented the twelve tribes of Israel. The gems were set in four rows of three: Sardius, topaz and carbuncle; emerald, sapphire and diamond; ligure, agate and amethyst; and beryl, onyx and jasper.
So how did we get from gemstones representing the twelve tribes of Israel to birthstones? The writings of Flavius Josephus (1st century AD) and St. Jerome (5th century AD) made the connection between the 12 stones in the Breastplate and the 12 signs of the zodiac. The idea was proposed that each of the gemstones had special powers associated with the corresponding astrological sign, and that wearing these stones at the right time would have therapeutic or talismanic benefits.
For individuals who were born within the month of a specific gemstone, that would become their birthstone.
An engagement ring is a ring indicating that the person wearing it is engaged to be married, especially in Western cultures. In Western countries, engagement rings are worn mostly by women, and rings can feature diamonds or other gemstones.
In some other cultures men and women wear matching rings. In some cultures, engagement rings are also used as wedding rings.
Before agreeing to marry, a couple may choose to buy and wear pre-engagement rings, also called promise rings. After marrying, the couple may wear both engagement rings and wedding rings, or if they prefer, only the wedding rings.
Types of Engagement Ring Offered by TriJewels
As we all know color of gold in natural form is yellow, bright yellow color specially 24K naturally found in mother earth.
Recently I feel over period of 20 years more and more people are wanting different colors of metal to wear.
Platinum was heavily advertised in early 2000’s but it being an expensive metal and heavy metal to wear, we jewelers started looking for alternative to platinum which could be cheaper and lighter to wear.
First, we tried silver but it was too light and very inexpensive and oxidizes faster, so we started experimenting with gold itself, with help of Alloys we started mixing it pure gold and come up with different gold colors in different purity form and that is how gold of different colors were born with time.
