Amethyst is the birthstone for February, but everyone loves the purple hues of this stone.
Emerald is the exquisite deep green birthstone for May, and is one of my favorites.
The birthstones for June are pearl or alexandrite. Natural alexandrite is very difficult to obtain, but see our new Zandrite, described above. We also have rings and earrings featuring pearls.
July's birthstone is ruby, a beautiful deep red. Larger sizes are available by special order.
Peridot is the August birthstone. Its lovely yellowish-green color is subtle but striking. Peridot is also found here in New Mexico.
Blue sapphire is the birthstone for September, but ceylon sapphires from Sri Lanka are available in pink and yellow. Again, larger sizes are available by special order.
October's stone is pink tourmaline. Tourmaline comes in a multitude of other colors, including pink, red,green and blue and is probably my very favorite stone. An alternate birthstone is opal.
Zircon and blue topaz are the birthstones for December, with blue topaz being available in many more sizes and shapes. It can vary in color from light "sky" blue to a medium "Swiss blue" to a very rich, dark "London blue." We have selections in all these colors.
