    Expert Titanium Refurbishment

    Titanium is an amazing element gaining popularity in watchmaking. It’s lighter, stronger and even more resistant to corrosion than steel—plus, since it doesn’t need to be alloyed, it’s hypoallergenic! Even though titanium is super strong and scratch-resistant, it still needs some TLC over time, but did you know that only specialists like us can do the job? The tricky thing about titanium is that routine tasks like polishing require specialized tools and equipment that many jewelers and watchmakers—who are used to working with favorites like gold, silver and stainless steel—simply don’t have. In fact, most watchmakers will tell you that titanium watches cannot be refurbished at all—but not us! Because…

    Designer Spotlight: Le Vian

    One of our favorite designers we carry in-store and online is Le Vian, a family-owned jewelry company with centuries of history. As far back as the 1400s, they were honing their magnificent craft, creating adornments and artifacts of unrivaled beauty.

Thanks to its composition of microscopic silica spheres, a rainbow of colors appears when this gemstone is exposed to light. There are many different types of opals that range from black to white and even red (known as a fire opal), each believed to bring good luck and protection to the wearer. The mysteriously beautiful opal is considered a delicate stone, coming in at 5.5 to 6 on the Mohs scale…

    Sapphire: September’s Birthstone

    For over a century, sapphire has been recognized as September’s official birthstone. The name “sapphire” comes from the Latin sapphirus and the Greek sappheiros, which both mean “blue stone,” though the gem comes in many other colors, too. Sapphires have been treasured and used in jewelry making for thousands of years, and it’s no mystery why! Not only is this gem stunningly beautiful, but it also scores a 9 on the Mohs scale—only one rank below the diamond—making it tough enough to wear daily without having to worry about chipping or scratching the stone. But it wasn’t just superb durability that attracted the ancients to sapphires—it was also something more…
