PURPLE has ancient associations with power and royalty.  It evokes artistic expression, mystery and the cosmos.  Also it’s 2018 Pantone® Color of the Year.
“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination…PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple takes our awareness and potential to a higher level,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
“From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection…it lights the way to what is yet to come.” Citing musical icons Prince, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix, Pantone noted that a deep purple like Ultra Violet has “long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance.”
Some of our favorite purple colored gemstones include: Amethyst, Tanzanite and even Purple color enhanced Diamonds.

Gift idea #7 . . . a “push” present for that special mom-to-be

Do you know someone who is expecting soon, or has recently given birth?

Consider a Push Present.

The popularity of the push present has soared recently. So what exactly is it?

Wikipedia defines “push present” as a gift a partner gives to the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child. In practice the present may be given before or after the birth, or even in the delivery room.

A recent survey of over 30,000 respondents by BabyCenter found that 38% of new mothers received a push present, and 55% of pregnant mothers wanted one, though fewer thought it was actually expected. About 40% of both groups said the baby itself was already a present and did not wish an additional reward.

It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the new mom.

Some ideas for push gifts include jewelry with the gemstone of the month the baby is due, a gold, silver or platinum disk with names, initials or birthstone. A delicate diamond pendant, pearl necklace or earrings.

The trend has generated a backlash, as some couples dislike the implicit materialism of push presents, and would prefer increased help in chores or baby care, or save the money for the child’s education. Anyway you decide to help the new mom, she deserves some extra love and attention.


According to etiquette expert Pamela Holland, there are no set guidelines for push presents. “The standard is that there is no standard,” she said. “It does make sense to have etiquette around wedding or baby shower gifts because you’re inviting other people into it. But this is far too intimate to have a rule.” In general it is the woman who lets her man know about push presents, not the other way around, although there can be peer pressure from friends to buy one on either the man or the woman.

Diamonds were the most popular gift in the form of an eternity ring, but also tablet computers, charm bracelets and designer watches and handbags were also popular gifts to celebrate a new arrival.

Some interesting facts about Citrine…

Did you know…

A trace of iron in Citrine’s structure is responsible for its yellow-to-orange color?

Citrine is rare in nature, so most Citrine on the market is the result of heat treatment of Amethyst.

Citrine is recognized as one the most popular and frequently purchased yellow gemstones.

In the days before modern gemology, its darkish yellow color caused it to be confused with topaz.

BIRTHSTONES & ANNIVERSARIES

Along with topaz, Citrine is a birthstone for November. It’s also recognized as the gem that commemorates the thirteenth anniversary.

How about it’s QUALITY?

The following factors combine to determine a Citrine’s value.

COLOR: Vivid yellows, reddish oranges, and earth tones are popular with consumers.

CLARITY: Eye-visible inclusions are not common in citrine. If present, they decrease its value.

CUT: Citrine might be carved, custom-cut, or calibrated for jewelry use.

CARAT WEIGHT: Citrine is available in a wide range of sizes for setting into a variety of jewelry styles.

WHY WE LOVE THIS GEMSTONE?

1) It’s affordable.

Even fine citrine has a modest price tag. Large gems remain affordable, as price per carat does not rise dramatically for larger sizes.

2) Geodes

Giant hollow crystal-lined amethyst geodes from areas like Brazil are often heated to become giant citrine “cathedrals.”

3) Ametrine

In Bolivia, amethyst and citrine colors can occur together in the same crystal. These unique gems are called ametrine.

SOME HISTORY…
Citrine was often used in the crowns and jewels worn by royals and rulers. This was
because it was associated with qualities of strength, tenacity, dedication, and resilience.
Aside from its healing properties it is reputed to increase creativity, and restore energy.
They are also widely believed to bestow good fortune and success to the wearer, and
are often called the success stone.  The properties are said to give the wearer a sense
of positive hope for what is ahead. The November Birthstone makes a wonderful
birthday, anniversary, or holiday gifts.

"... The forest's filled by morning light in amber and citrine
reveals the white tail doe who leaps, as blackbirds sound the cry.
A cherished world of light and dark and colors in between...."

What do moms REALLY want? Look no further than the bedroom…

 

No, it’s not what you’re thinking! But in a very unscientific survey of 6,000 mothers about what moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day, nearly 70 percent agree they would prefer two extra hours of sleep over a piece of expensive jewelry. For the other 30%, we’ve got you covered at The Gold Market!

Moms also agree that a sentimental gift from their child is preferable to a massage or a fancy makeover. More than 60 percent of moms who took the survey agree that they’d prefer an adorable, hand-made card from their kids instead of a day at the spa.

Moms are torn, however, on whether their idea of a perfect Mother’s Day involves spending the day surrounded by their kids, or relaxing in quiet solitude. Of the moms who answered the survey question, the votes were split 50/50.

Here are the top things that moms said they would love for Mother’s Day:

  1. Sleep
  2. Jewelry
  3. Candy
  4. Phone call
  5. Scented candle
  6. Brunch/Dinner with the family
  7. A clean house
  8. Flowers
  9. Breakfast in bed
  10. Car wash
