We love our gemstones! At Avazera our heart skips a beat when we see pearls, moonstones, rubies, peridots, blue topaz, green aventurine, turquoise. Sorry there, we got carried away on a colourful tidal wave of enthusiasm! We’ll explain ourselves. Have any of you heard this quote – “what nature delivers to us is never stale. Because what nature creates has eternity in it” by Isaac Bashevis. And if that didn’t pull on your “soul” strings, we’re just going to drive this point a little bit more home. Ready? Unlike flowers whose beauty fades with time, gemstones are everlasting.
Now that we have mushily captured your attention, here are three reasons why your jewelry collection could be calling out for gemstones to be added to the family.
Gemstones for the Win!
1. Powers: Gemstones are fascinating! If you hop back in a time machine and go back thousands of years in history you will notice from the Stone Age, to the Romans, Egyptians, Greeks, traveling through the Middle Ages and onward almost every civilization has harnessed these natural beauties. But, what do moonstones, rubies, and other natural gemstones have in common? They are found-not created, manufactured or controlled. Once discovered, these perfectly imperfect splendors yield powers beyond fashion with also having the abilities to protect, heal, and soothe the wearer both physically and spiritually.
Avazera Facts: Did you know that the Ancient Romans used topaz to provide protection for travelers? Or, that in the Middle Ages, topaz was used to aid in helping those with asthma and insomnia. Talk about multitaskers!
But, that is only one out of many gemstones and there are many more powers to be explored! Have a look through our jewelry catalogue which outlines a variety of gemstones and their corresponding healing beliefs!
2. Original: Natural gemstones are beautifully rare, that many cannot be spared their mesmerizing and enchanting charm! In the words of Dr. Seuss “why fit in when you were born to stand out!” Truer words can never be spoken about gemstone jewelry. These splendors symbolically reflect the fact that all of us are beautifully different in our own ways, so why not have stunning jewelry that echoes that as well! Gemstones are nature’s way of saying “look how beautiful I can be” So let’s all join in!
3. Environmentally Friendly: Let us put into perspective how humans are treating this great blue and green planet. The Earth is 4.6 billion years old. If that time was scaled to 46 years, the human race has only been on Earth for four hours! The Industrial Revolution began an hour ago and in that short amount of time 50% of trees have destroyed. Just trees. Note, we haven’t even touched upon climate change, water, animals, and natural resources. However, with gemstone jewelry they require less energy to make and leave less of an imprint on the environment compared to artificial jewelry. A gemstones journey is very short – from the ground, clean, polish, cut, to jewelry! Here’s to looking ethically fabulous!
Now you can see why our enthusiasm and passion for gemstones keeps on growing. Jewelry that is both beautiful and powerful? That is nothing short of amazing! Let us know in the comments below which gemstones are your favourite and why!
