Valentine’s Day 2009 Jewelry

1 Feb

Diamond and Gemstone Jewelry

Valentine's Day is a wonderful time to tell someone you truly care about them. When you give the gift of jewelry they can be reminded of your love throughout the whole year. It is Geoffrey Chaucer we must thank for the invention of St. Valentine's Day. In his book Parliament of Foules, circa 1380, he described this festival as the day on which every bird chooses its partner. William Shakespeare confirmed this by declaring that the feast of love was to be on February 14th because on that day the birds began to mate.

Birthday Flower Jewelry

29 May

Birthday Flower Jewelry

birthstones are the first thing that comes to mind when we think of jewelry and birthstones, but Giovanni Design International has come up with another twist on the idea of birthdays and jewelry in their line of Birth Flower jewelry:

Each Giovanni Birth Flower is imbued with meaning and tells a story and history linked to love and happiness. November, for example, is represented by the Chrysanthemum, representing "abundance of compassion and devotion."

Birth Flowers can be worn as a pendant or brooch, and the collection also offers rings and earrings. "The origin of birth month flowers goes back to the Roman Empire, when it is believed that birthdays were first celebrated, We can't think of a better way to celebrate special occasions and birthdays than with a Birth Flower that will last forever — full of beauty, history and meaning."

Since May is about to leave us in a few days, I picked this flower (pictured) for all those who had a birthday this past month.

Hop on Easter Jewelry

Hop on Easter Jewelry

Easter is this weekend, and while this holiday is not one of the biggies for jewelry shopping, you'll still find plenty of Easter jewelry on the net. While I know Easter is actually a religious holiday, it is also a time that I think about my old pet rabbit, Mr. Bunny, a little dwarf rabbit who was with me for eleven years. So, this is in tribute to Mr. Bunny – lots of pretty bunny jewelry.

Pictured first is a rabbit pendants from Zulu Moon, who seems to have a pretty good silver charm and jewelry bunny collection, including these sterling bunny post earrings.

I also found some pewter bunny jewelry at the Bunny Bunch Boutique.

Here's also a sterling bunny charm on a chain from them.

An added plus to Bunny Bunch Boutique is that part of this company's proceeds goes to The Bunny Bunch S.P.C.R., a no-kill, non-profit rabbit rescue organization. (stepping on soap box) As a one time rabbit owner myself, I can attest to the fact that while rabbits are wonderful animals, they are not the easiest pets to take care of for various reasons. I know this time of year we often see pet stores selling these poor animals, but they are not like a gold fish. They take a good deal of care, much like a dog, probably even more so in some respects than you average house cat. So, organizations like this are really needed! (stepping off soap box)

St. Patrick’s Day Jewelry

St. Patrick's Day Jewelry

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays for a few reasons. First, it is the official dating anniversary for my husband and me. I dump one guy and found another on the same day! Actually, I had dumped my old boyfriend for about the zillionth time and realized it was time to move on to this other guy who I had been trying not to get to close to since I wasn't technically single at the time.

Another reason for loving this holiday is that March is often a month filled with changes and those are usually good changes, at least for me. So, I'm looking for some good luck jewelry to get lucky this month, and I found some great pieces over at Red Enevelope.

First, above is a horse shoe pendant and necklace. Not the most elegant of charms sometimes, but I think they pull it off:

This sterling-silver necklace includes 10 peridot stones, said to promote happiness and good cheer. With the prongs pointing up, the horseshoe symbol is believed to retain good luck.

Here's also a sterling silver bracelet: The native shamrock with three leaves is said to represent love, valor and wit.

Finally, I found these cute little peridot and sterling post earrings
