Sardonyx is a form of onyx and is recognized by its layers of reddish brown and white banding. It was popular with the ancient Greeks and Romans who carried into battle talismans of sardonyx engraved with images of heroes such as Mars or Hercules, believing that this would bring courage and victory. Because of its attractive banding, sardonyx has long been used to fashion cameos (carved raised figures) and intaglios (the reverse of cameos). This gemstone is found throughout the world. The most attractive specimens are found in India, but material also is mined in Czechoslovakia, Brazil, Uruguay, Germany, and in the United States.
We are proud to announce that we now carry Angelica jewelry.
With over 500 bracelets from which to choose and made in the USA using recycled metals, Angelica offers easily adjustable bracelets with charms that let a woman show how she feels, what she believes in and who she is. Angelica is from the Royal Chain Group, a 35-year-old, 2nd generation family-owned company and one of the country’s leading and most respected manufacturers of jewelry. In addition, $.25 of each bracelet is donated to Generation Rescue, a national organization committed to improving the quality of life for those affected with autism.
We would like to thank our customers … er, FANS, for voting us Best of the Best in the County Press. We’d like to thank you by offering this great special!
There’s no better way to demonstrate your love than by giving a ruby in celebration of a July birthday. Rubies arouse the senses, stir the imagination, and are said to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love. Ruby is a variety of the gems species corundum. It is harder than any natural gemstone except diamond, which means a ruby is durable enough for everyday wear. Fine-quality ruby is extremely rare, and the color of the gem is most important to its value. The most prized color is a medium or medium dark vivid red or slightly purplish red. If the gem is too light or has too much purple or orange, it will be called a fancy-color sapphire.
