Color Me Impressed!

If when we say Tsavorite, Sapphire, and Alexandrite, and you respond with “Girl, what?” then this is the place for you!

Tsavorite, Sapphire, and Alexandrite are some of the colored stones we choose for their beauty and rating on the Mohs hardness scale. Much like the people who wear them, they can endure just about everything life throws at them and look good doing it.

Sapphires

Sapphires, a September birthstone, have long been loved for their striking array of colors and surprising durability. Landing a whopping 9 out of 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, we can confidently say this about the Sapphire woman: She’s a tough one with an eye-catching look that just radiates intrigue, adventure, and rebellion. Along with Lab Grown Chatham Pink Champagne Sapphires, we also have lab-grown Chatham Orange Padparascha (available on request), named after the Sri Lankan lotus blossom. No matter what your true colors may be, you can put them on display with a Sapphire.

 

Tsavorite

A January birthstone, Tsavorite (pronounced Sav-or-ite) is said to be named for Tsavo East National Park in Kenya. While it was found in 1967 in Tanzania, Tiffany made the saturated, lighter-green stone popular in the ‘70s. And we’ll let you in on a little secret: Despite sharing a Mohs hardness of 7.5 with Emeralds, Tsavorites make Emeralds look the B-Team. With more sparkle, better durability, and a lower price tag, Tsavorite is the go-to green goddess. She’s low maintenance, too: Tsavorites don’t require oils or complicated treatments to stay strong and lustrous. They are self-care queens!

 

Alexandrite

As the June birthstone, Alexandrite honors Geminis with its duality. This versatile babe is deep purple by the bright light of day, but when the lights go down, she shines with deep blue and almost-teal tones. Alexandrite is a multidimensional showstopper just the like the people who wear it! If you really want to capture the kaleidoscope effect of this stone, lab-grown Alexandrite has that down to a science (pun intended). Since it’s also the gemstone associated with 55th wedding anniversaries and has a Mohs hardness of 8.5, Alexandrite is all about going the distance. Get a little Lexi in your life and there will never be a dull moment.

 

Diamonds

Oh, you know her: The beautiful, sparkling, "nothing quite like it" rare gem that is synonymous with engagement rings. Diamonds are the quintessential stone for go-getters and perfectionists with a classic bent. Formed from heat and compression over billions of years, Diamonds thrive under pressure and show us that beauty is worth waiting for. Remind you of anybody? For those of us who are little less patient and a lot more budget-conscious, Diamonds are still an option thanks to lab-grown stones made of crystallized carbon. And don’t worry; your secret is safe with us: you have to be a trained gemologist to tell the difference between natural Diamonds and their lab-grown sisters. Linda in HR (or your mother-in-law) will never know the difference and you can get much more bling for your money!

 

Salt and Pepper or Black Diamonds

You can have a clear conscience, too. Our natural white, black and color-enhanced Diamonds are ethically sourced using the Kimberley Process. Since you leave the Diamond expertise to us, we have chosen to source our Diamonds in the G-H color and SI 1-2 clarity. All that jargon means is that we choose the highest class where you can see the purity and quality with the naked eye, but still avoid a hefty price tag. Should you like something of higher value, we’ve got you covered! Feel free to reach out to our custom team and we’ll provide some options and pricing.

 

Stones like Topaz, Emeralds, and Morganite are too soft and will either chip or become cloudy within about a year. We refuse to sell you something that won't last the battle of guitar shreds, mad chef nights, and paint nights, to name a few - so we sought out the most durable colored stones in the most gorgeous colors.
