Gems by James April Birthstone is Diamonds

Posted by on April 16, 2012 at 09:11 am

The birthstone for April is diamond!

Diamonds are forever, what else can we say here? And, today, there are more choices than ever. Diamonds in hues of yellow, red, pink, blue, and green range in intensity from faint to vivid. In general, the more saturated the color, the higher the value. In fact, diamonds sparkling with intense color are rare and very desirable as a result. Diamond is the anniversary gem for the 10th and 60th years of marriage.

NOTE: Diamonds of all colors, shapes and sizes can be special ordered from Gems by James. Please contact us for additional details.

October Birthstones Tourmaline OpalTourmaline: Tourmaline is one of the favorite gemstones among designers and collectors. It occurs naturally in a wide variety of colors and it is known for displaying multiple colors in the same gemstone.  One variety is known as watermelon tourmaline, which is green, pink, and white color bands.

Opal: The name opal is derived from the Greek “Opallos” meaning to see a change. In the case of opals, the radiance is seen as a change of color.  They range in color from milky white to black with flashes of yellow, orange, green, red, and blue.
