Men have adorned their bodies long before women, and many of the jewelry designs today are inspired by ancient symbolism and fashion.
Although jewelry houses have mainly focused on styles for women for the past two centuries, in recent years we’ve seen a rising trend of men wearing not just traditionally masculine styles but also gender fluid designs, such as beads and pearl necklaces.
Join us in celebrating Women’s History Month with a look at the incredible women who work at Greenland Ruby to bring our responsibly sourced rubies and pink sapphires to you.
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Greenland Ruby and our heart-shaped rubies and pink sapphires! Hearts have long been recognized not just as a symbol of LOVE but also sentimentality, passion, charity, and joy. Greenland Ruby’s fiery gems, formed nearly 3 billion years ago in the icy landscape of the arctic, symbolize the enduring love we hold for our family, friends and loved ones.
Looking ahead to 2022, the creatives in the jewelry industry are moving away from the big and sparkly combinations from the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s, and creating sleek modern jewelry that showcases colored gemstones in a new light.
The end of the year is special for countless cultures and people around the world! From Saint Nicholas Day and Christmas to St. Lucia Day, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Boxing Day, Omisoka and many others, families and loved ones look forward to gathering at this time of year.
It is believed that the first gemstone discoveries were accidental finds, stumbled upon by hunter-gatherers in streams or mud. Even unpolished, their color has fascinated human beings since the beginning of time.
Since the early 1900’s the signs of the zodiac, and more specifically months of birth, have been linked to gemstones. July is the month allocated to Rubies, so thought this would be a good time to tell you more about our favorite gem.
What’s not to love about these exquisite gems? Commonly known to be blue, sapphires actually come in a variety of colors; they can be colorless, yellow, green, orange, black, purple, pink and everything in between.
