Red for Ruby, Green for Peridot, Aqua for Aquamarine

Tomorrow is the first day of July and the sultry days of summer are upon us!   The current temp here in Arlington is 103 degrees Fahrenheit!  But here are some cool jewelry pieces that  make the summer heat bearable!  
   Above, my new favorite aquamarine necklace is made with sparkling aquamarine rondelles and nuggets and one beautiful slightly translucent agate faceted oval, the perfect foil for the wonderful blue of the aquamarine.
In readiness for July whose birthstone is the ruby are the following bracelet and earrings.  First, a ruby bracelet gets some cool tones from gem-quality apatite and gleam from 14 karat gold-filled accents. Little charms of apatite and a larger sand dollar charm are on either side of the bracelet.  The focal point is a large flat, faceted ruby nugget!

Above, these ruby earrings with their pinkish glow cool down some with sterling silver and faceted aquamarine rondelles. The earwires are from Bali and have a hand-decorated sterling silver flower on the front. The ruby earrings below feature 14 karat gold-filled beads and accents and some of our favorite larger faceted ruby nuggets!

Below peridot faceted rondelles team up with greenish-gold freshwater coin pearls in this freshwater pearl bracelet with sterling silver.
The coin pearl necklace below has gleaming champagne coin pearls with what looks like a pearl on top of each coin.  They give this coin pearl necklace a pretty lacy effect.  14 karat gold-filled accents add sophistication to this classic necklace.

Cloisonne beads are focals in the bracelet and the earrings above. In the bracelet, the faceted rondelles are peridots; the toggle clasp and beads are gold vermeil.  The earrings have fan-shaped cloisonne beads, 14 karat gold-filled beads and earwires, and genuine emerald rondelles.
  Enjoy your summer and don't forget the FREE SHIPPING in the USA for purchases over $50.00!
