Stephanie King Design » Elements of Stones

Archive for the 'Elements of Stones' Category

This is a first of a series of posts that will list stones and some of the attributes that they are said to possess besides of course enhancing one’s beauty. Many people wear particular stones because of the inherent benefits that they believe that stones have.
The first grouping will be gemstones that are well known and then as I write about others, I will add images.

DIAMOND (known as a girl’s best friend)
- enhances strengths and weaknesses.

RUBY (red)
-helps in matters of love

SAPPHIRE-(blue as well as other colours, e.g. pink, yellow)
-clears unwanted thoughts

-brings domestic bliss and loyalty

-promotes empathy

AMETHYST-(lavender to purple)
-calming, facilitates decision-making

Stephanie King Design » jade

Most people think of Jade as being only green but it actually comes in a variety of colours, naturally or through enhancement. The jade stones in these 2 pieces have not been enhanced and the colour is just so beautiful and very subtle. I will have a number of pieces available in jade in different colours at my Spring Open House in March. This allows for beautiful shades which are more affordable than naturally occurring colours.


Stephanie King Design » onyx

It is a hard stone and can also be carved and used to make decorative pieces such as boxes, and inlay work.Onyx is cut into many different shapes with differing finishes which makes jewellery designers happy. There is even onyx with a matte or unpolished surface.Black has always been a mainstay of fashion and as a result onyx figures prominently in many jewellery collections.


Stephanie King Design » pearls

Improvements were made to the farming of freshwater pearls These are grown in mussels but in the beginning they were not of very good shape or size but were inexpensive. Once it was understood how a pearl develops, oysters were seeded manually and thus cultured pearl farming was started. Freshwater pearl harvesters will add a small quantity of metal to the water so that pearls with colour will develop.

Stephanie King Design » amethyst

I always have a number of pieces in my collection and on my gallery page you will see a necklace with black ovals, onyx and 2 shades of amethyst as well as goldtone vintage chanel beads. These colours, once reserved for royalty or very old people in the case of dark purple, are now fashion forward shades and a highlight of the current and past few seasons.


Stephanie King Design » Amber

Amber, altho considered a gemstone and used for thousands of years in jewellery, is actually organic and is a tree resin which has become fossilized over millions of years. A few facts:-Amber is the lightest of weight of all gems; it is the only gem which is warm and feels good to the touch; Amber is the stone for the 10th wedding anniversary.
