Gemstones & Birthstones
Gemstones and Pearls
While Diamonds have always represented raw power, with their awesome sparkle and scintillation, Gemstones, on the other hand, have their own equally compelling mystique.
Through the centuries, Gemstones have represented not only beauty and wealth, but also mythical protective powers from enemies and evil, medicinal homeopathic healing powers, and of course, supernatural powers under the zodiac signs (Birthstones).
Today, many also enjoy Gemstones for their vast, unique properties, including such stones that change color, depending on the type of light, such as Alexandrite; gemstones that form two distinct colors while growing as crystals, such as Watermelon Tourmaline; gemstones that are organic in origin, such as Amber, Coral, and Pearls; jewels that have "stars" like Star Sapphires; gemstones that have adularescence, like Moonstones; and gemstones that have play of color, such as Precious Opals.
At Dalzell & Co., we enjoy sharing our love of Gemstones through our large collection of Dalzell and Designer colored stone jewelry, as well as our loose (unmounted) Gemstones with which we're privileged to custom design your own dazzling, one of a kind piece of jewelry.
Through the ages, Birthstones have been thought to bring good luck, protection from enemies, as well as a cure for common ailments for the wearer. Today, Birthstones are a fun way to personalize a piece of jewelry, whether it be a Mother's Ring set with birthstones for each child's birthday, or as a nice pair of stud earrings. All of the stones offer a range of colors, sizes and price ranges, allowing you to find the perfect fit for the occasion at Dalzell Jewelers.
