The Meaning Behind The February Birthstone: Amethyst

February 04, 2020

Everything you need to know about the Aquamarine gemstone

January 24, 2020

Aquamarine is one of the most popular and best-known gemstones. It's a pale to medium blue-green stone, similar in colour to the sky and sea. The delicate, cool blue colour suggests class and sophistication, a gorgeous alternative to a classic diamond in an engagement ring. Ranking at a 7.5/8 on the MOHS scale of hardness, Aquamarine is an incredible choice for an everyday ring. The hardness of the stone protects it to a large extent from getting damaged, meaning it's a brilliant choice for everyday wear. Aquamarine was first discovered in the Adun-Chalon mountains in Siberia in 1723.

January 17, 2020

Although the price of solid gold jewellery can vary significantly to plated, solid gold jewellery will last forever and hold its value over time. If you’re trying to determine whether to buy solid gold or gold plated piece, consider whether or not you’re looking for a precious piece that will last a lifetime, or a piece that will wear over time. Solid Gold vs Gold Plated Solid gold Solid gold in its purest form (24 karats) is too soft for everyday wear. As a result, it's alloyed with a base metal to give it strength and durability. Chupi casts in solid 14k gold using an ancie
