THE ARROW: 

The meaning of a solitary arrow represents defense and protection from harm.  It can also be used as a symbol of movement or direction or love.  I think it is so interesting that something that isn’t a heart could symbolize love, how unique! These simple arrow designs  have everyone talking.  I have been seeing arrow EVERYTHING lately and i am very happy about it! . These pendants completely remind me of “Cupids Arrow” and would make such a wonderful valentines day gift for someone special! The diamond arrow contains 1/10 carat total weight of  round cut diamonds. Both of these arrow pendants come with the chain and are  available in 14 karat yellow, white and rose (pink) gold.

-april birth stone-

What is it about diamonds that girls love? It could be that these colorless beauties are completely eye catching from all the light, sparkle, and color that these stones radiate. it could also be that each stone is completely different from one ANOTHER and are truly one of a kind! A GIFT OF A DIAMOND IS SYMBOLIC OF EVERLASTING LOVE AND IS THE OFFICIAL STONE FOR THE 60TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY (and is an acceptable gift for any special occasion)! IT SYMBOLIZES WISDOM, ENLIGHTENMENT, PURITY AND CLARITY. IT PROVIDES PROTECTION, PRESERVES PEACE AND GIVES THE WEARER POWER. THE DIAMOND ENCOURAGES SELF-CONFIDENCE AND A DESIRE FOR INDEPENDENCE WHILE COUNTERACTING JEALOUSY.

The name diamond is of Latin origin meaning “invincible.” Diamond’s are composed of very DENSELY packed carbon atoms. Diamonds and graphite are both Created from carbon, but under certain pressure and circumstances the atomic structure is organized differently. Even though they come from the same element The atomic structure itself makes a diamond the hardest substance on earth, and graphite a very soft substance! Diamonds are either colorless or can be red, yellow, brown, black, green, blue, pink or violet. Yellow is the most common fancy color and pink is the most rare. A diamond gets its blue color from the presence of boron, while yellow diamonds get their color from the presence of nitrogen.

When a diamond is not “gem quality” it is used in manufacturing and industry. The value of a diamond largely depends upon how skillfully and well it is cut. Diamond’s value is measured based on cut, color, clarity and carat weight, which is known as the “THE Four C’s”.
