I like to gift jewelry during the holidays, for many obvious reasons, but the main one being that jewelry is a gift that lasts a lifetime. Personalization is an aspect I take very seriously when it comes to jewelry because I think it makes it even more special. However, not everyone wants a name plate necklace, or monogram piece…we’re talking personalization on a subtle scale: birthstone jewelry!
Luckily, Hunt Country Jewelers exists because they create some of the best birthstone jewels around. The secret to their success is that they are able to import gemstone rough straight from the source, from all over the world, and cut it themselves! They get most of their rough from East Africa, but they also import from China, South America and even Russia, occasionally. This is truly a small business that does it all–from rough to finished piece. The variety of gemstones that they offer is quite vast, so they truly have a birthstone for every month!
The above photos are all unique gemstones from Hunt Country Jewelers–you’ve got aquamarine, peridot and tourmaline in the first photo, along with peridot, pearls, amethyst, citrine, and more aquamarine. The photo with the rings features sapphire, tanzanite and zircon! So juicy and bold, you can see why gemstone jewelry makes a wonderful gift and the quality you get from Hunt Country Jewelers is unlike any other!
I absolutely love birthstone jewelry and think it makes a great holiday gift because the possibilities are endless! The gemstone doesn’t have to represent the intended person–it could stand for children, significant others, or even the month in which something eventful/meaningful happened. I lucked out because I adore my birthstone: sapphires! However, I also love opals and although I wasn’t born in October, I did get married in October, so in my world, opals are just as much my stone as are sapphires. You can do this too!
