In the serene land of the Himalayas live the Tibetans, a group of indigenous people who have played a significant role in the history of arts and crafts. Every work of art made by Tibetan hands would spark intrigue and amazement – each one reflecting the heart and soul of the craftsman who made it.

For thousands of years, Tibetan artisans have produced very intricate designs of art masterpieces, particularly jewelry. Tibetans regard art as part of their whole being and each masterpiece they create is full of love, meaning and cultural value.

Turquoise and coral are the most revered and highly venerated gemstones among Tibetans. However, it is turquoise that elaborately embellishes most of their jewelry
masterpieces as they believe it to have tremendous protective power and esoteric beauty.

One of the oldest gemstones known to man, turquoise has fascinated emperors and monarchs throughout history. This gem was believed to possess immense value that only
those of high social rank were worthy of owning. It was highly revered not only by Tibetans in Ancient times but also by Egyptians, Persians and Romans.

The highly skilled Tibetan master artisans at JeGem painstakingly handcraft our turquoise Tibetan jewelry in the proud tradition of their ancestors’ remarkable artistic heritage.

The Kaleidoscope Gem

Opal JewelryWhen it comes to gemstones, few can match the amazing display of color that high quality opals produce. But have you ever wondered just how those magical kaleidoscope displays are created?

Opal‘s magical interplay of colors – which is actually called opalescence – is created by its internal composition of tiny hexagonal or cubic silica spheres. As they catch and diffract the light, these spheres are capable of producing every color in the visible spectrum in opal’s distinctive kaleidoscope effect.

The exact combination of colors they produce depends on the specific composition of each opal, and this is also how the quality of the stone is determined. The most vivid displays are seen in precious opal with silica spheres of equal size packed tightly into evenly-spaced lattices.

At JeGem, we select the finest opals in a wide range of colors. Today, roughly 97% of the world’s opal comes from Australia and at JeGem, we have an extensive selection of Australian black opal and Australian white opal jewelry for you to choose from. Also coming from Australia is a small group of rare variety solid black boulder opal. However, we also offer a wide range of highly sought-after and very collectible opal jewelry featuring the much rarer African opal, Merlinite opal, Mexican fire opal and Peruvian opal.

Our delightful opal jewelry collections feature a wide array of one-of-a-kind artisan handcrafted rings, earrings, bracelets and pendants that are sure to cast a spell on you.

Bring a little magic into your life, with stunning opal jewelry from JeGem.

The Lore of Mother of Pearl

Mother of Pearl JewelryMother of Pearl was discovered as far back as 500 – 600 AD. Often used in art, mother of pearl made its appearance in jewelry and other adornments in later years. Many tribes and cultures that first possessed mother of pearl valued the oysters more than the pearls.  Early history depicts Polynesians using the pearls as marbles.

The mother of pearl is not a stone but a by-product of the oyster.  The luster of a pearl is formed within the oyster shell, created by a combination of calcium carbonate and conchiolin. Mother of pearl oysters are often found in warm, tropical seas.

There is much lore surrounding the mother of pearl.  Many believe the pearl can heal wounds. Because the pearl is made of calcium and our bodies use calcium, this could have some validity.  Many believe that used as a powder, the pearl improves eyesight and lessens the effects of cataracts. Some believe that those who wear the pearl will grow in faith.

Wearing mother of pearl enhances confidence, decision-making ability, and creativity.   The lore of mother of pearl says that your ability to focus will be enhanced. At one time it is thought that those who actually swallowed a pearl would live to be immortal.

Mother of pearl brings purity and clarity to your life when you are wearing it.  Known as a gem that reflects a mothers love, it brings protection to the mother who wears it.

Find your favorite piece of Mother of pearl jewelry at JeGem.com. Available in a wide variety of artisan-handcrafted designs!
