Winter brings with it the joy of Christmas time, the romance of Valentine’s Day, and the passion of a cold winter’s night. Summer, though, brings its own pleasures; as the days get longer and the flowers bloom, our hearts look to brighter, more fun tokens of our affections. Though gold and silver are beautiful, and diamonds are a girl’s best friends, nothing says “summer love” like a stunning gemstone cluster necklace. Semi-precious jewellery is beautiful and economical, and is full of the sparkle, colour, and spontaneity of a summer love.
Amethyst, with its rich purple hues and deep spiritual connection, makes a lovely gift for a summer’s day. Amethyst clip-on earrings would make a wonderful gift for graduates, summer birthdays, or almost anyone; the beauty lies in that they would make an equally good present for a grandmother or a lover, a friend or a co-worker, a wife or a daughter. Picture her, also, in turquoise, the turquoise clip-on earrings bringing a hint of sky blue to her sun tanned summer skin. When making gift decisions then, consider semi-precious gemstone jewellery; its beauty is eternal, and its colours exquisite.
When deciding on a piece of jewellery, consider her skin tone. An olive-skinned beauty would look lovely in turquoise, where a fair-haired maiden might sparkle in amethyst, tiger’s eye or coral. Picture an onyx cabochon nestled against her fair skin, or a gemstone cluster necklace made up of many different colours to highlight her shifting moods and attitudes. A diamond may be forever, but a semi-precious stone is for today; their lower price and greater variety allow for a purchase without guilt or long-term commitment. If you have yet to reach the “jewellery” stage of a relationship, perhaps you have merely been considering the wrong type of jewellery; do not underestimate gemstones for their beauty and variety.
When you were a child, you could make gifts to make your mother smile. Now, it is somewhat more difficult, as the macaroni necklaces that so pleased her give way to more difficult gift-giving decisions. Mum will always love jewellery from you, however; consider a pair of amethyst clip-on earrings or a lovely gemstone cluster necklace to bring a smile to her face and remind her that you are thinking of her. It need not be a major financial investment, but a gemstone necklace says “I love you. I’m thinking about you.”
With summer time comes graduation. We see the children that we have nurtured move out of our homes and into their own, and see them blossom into the young men and women who will be the foundation of our society. As we look at our daughters, beautiful, young, and full of potential, we are filled with pride for the girls they have been and the women they will be. To commemorate this occasion, then, what better gift than that of semi-precious jewellery. She will receive gold, silver, and diamonds soon enough from all of the young men who have been beating down your door for years. From you, though, a splash of purple, a hint of sky blue; it is these which embody the youth and spontaneity that she holds dear.
As the days get longer, and you are thinking about what to get your wife for your anniversary, or your mother for her birthday, consider semi-precious gemstone jewellery. As the days get shorter again, she will see the amethyst clip-on earrings that you so thoughtfully gave her and remember the sunshine of summer, the roar of the sea, and the beauty of a garden walk. These memories of summer will carry her through the dreariness of winter, until Christmas, when you may again surprise her with a gemstone cluster necklace. It will bring a smile to her face and yours, as you have chosen a truly unique, economical, and thoughtful gift for the woman in your life which will not be soon forgotten.
