A Rainbow of Gemstone Jewelry in the Asheville, NC Area
You’re a Gem!
Gemstone jewelry is vivacious, unique, dramatic, flirty, and full of personality. Sound like you? The perfect colorful accompaniment to your favorite outfits, unique engagement ring, or anniversary gift, gemstone jewelry is an underrated category of distinctive and cost-effective jewelry. Precious stones — such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds — don't scratch easily and come in a variety of vivid colors. Amethyst, aquamarine, topaz, and other semi-precious stones are perfect for birthstone jewelry, mother's rings, or statement pieces to go with your favorite outfit. Gemstone jewelry is perfect for small gifts and tokens of love since it is affordable and available in a range of sizes and quality. A large selection of gemstone rings, earrings, and more are available at Parker's Karat Patch Jewelers.
Birthstones for the Birthday Queen
Birthstones and birthstone jewelry have long been traditional gifts — with the exception of April (diamonds), the other eleven months use colored gemstones to signify the month in which you were born. Depending on your birth month, you may even have multiple options for stones or gemstones that come in a variety of colors! September's sapphires aren't limited to blue but also come in pink, yellow, chocolate, and even black. June has two gemstone options — alexandrite and moonstone. Even though some gemstones like garnets (January) and topaz (December) are commonly seen in just a few shades, they actually come in many hues. Have fun with your jeweler choosing your favorite stone for the most special birthstone jewelry.
Blues in All Hues
Most gemstones occur naturally in more than one color; the most common shade may only be the easiest to source. Sapphires, tourmalines, and topaz come in a rainbow of colors. Amethyst, aquamarine, emeralds, and many others have different levels of saturation, from very light to rich, dark shades. If you're not totally in love with the colors of a stone but want the symbolism and significance of that particular gemstone, ask your jeweler if they can order additional colors or hues. The beauty of shopping at Parker's Karat Patch Jewelers is that no matter your color preference, there's a piece of gemstone jewelry for you.
Mother's rings, and the less-common but still beautiful mother's necklaces and bracelets, are a touching way to say "I love you." Mother's keepsake jewelry features gemstones to represent the month in which each child was born; for small families, the parents' birthdays can also add a nice touch to bring more color and variety to the jewelry. While rings are the most traditional, consider cluster earrings or a custom pendant instead. When styling mother's jewelry, don't be afraid to get creative — engraving initials, names, or birthdates can add a special touch and make the piece truly yours.
