The February birthstone, amethyst, is said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage. At one time, only royalty could wear the gem. Ancient Greeks thought that the amethyst guarded against intoxication. In fact, amethyst comes from amethystos, a Greek word meaning “sober.” Whether you're shopping for a birthstone or a valentine gift, Lizzy's has a broad spectrum of heart-shaped lockets, rubies and pink topaz earrings, as well as Amethyst bracelets in stock in various shades of lavender to deep purple. Which occasion tops your list today . . . birthday or valentine?
The pearl's iridescent luminosity has bewitched men and women alike for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks wore pearls at their wedding ceremonies, believing they would promote marital bliss. This time-honored custom lives on today, with brides of many cultures wearing pearls to enhance their beauty and symbolize the purity of their love.
So greatly were pearls valued, they have even changed history. After accepting Cleopatra's wager that she could consume the wealth of an entire nation in one meal, Marc Antony watched as she removed a pearl earring, crushed it and drank the powder mixed with wine. Awed by her extravagant gesture, he became enamored, neglecting his duties to the Roman Empire.
Which pearl hue is your favorite? Pearls naturally occur in many tones of cream, pink and grey to black, green and blue. White and pink rosé are among the most popular shades. Peacock green and gold are among the rarest of the South Sea shades. Choose the shade you love the most, and look for evenly distributed and rich color.
Pearls are versatile accessories that add excitement to your attire. They are resilient and meant to be worn, but appropriate care helps preserve your investment. To protect your pearls' radiance, put on your jewelry after applying make-up and styling hair, and wipe off any perspiration gently before placing them back in your jewelry box.
Do you yearn for fashion accessories that combine timeless elegance with innovative new designs? Pearls may be the perfect choice! Almost by magic, nature transforms a grain of sand into a lustrous organic gemstone worthy of royalty. Your favorite length pearl strand may be waiting for you in Lizzy’s extensive collection.
“Eclecticism” is a key trend for 2016 – it is a combination of elements of contrasting styles; this year it is hippie style with Hollywood glamour. For example, bright fabrics and free-form clothing designs with stacks of bracelets, both metal and sparkly stones, add a touch of luxury with Bohemian chic. Either precious metals or costume jewelry, at Lizzy's our selection is incredible.
