Crafty
Necklaces and other jewelry pieces that look like they were made at home are what’s in this fall. Many of the models are wearing pieces that seem to be made from leftover jewelry pieces held together with rings. If you’re envisioning a hodgepodge of jewelry, that’s exactly what it is, which means you can wear something that’s just as unique as you.

Earrings do not have to match, either. Feel free to wear two different ones that complement each other and the outfit.

Chokers
The 90s are back in the way of Chokers. Some are delicate while others are extraordinary. Some are using charms while others are using precious stones as the centerpiece for the Choker. Thick and thin chokers are in, so choose what you feel looks best on you and with your outfit.

The Meaning Behind the August Birthstone

The Meaning Behind the August Birthstone

August is a special month; it has claimed two birthstones! The Peridot and Spinel work together to empower and influence everyone who wears them. Anyone born in this month loves wearing both the lime green and ruby red birthstones because of how well they complement one another.

About Birthstones
Birthstones are colorful gemstones. In ancient times, gemstones were believed to possess magical powers. People often carried them around for luck, health, and wealth. This tradition has carried on to the present day, but they are not referred to as birthstones.

While back in the day, people simply carried around colors and attached the significance of each color to a power, the American Gem Society decided to give each color a name. The society also decided to pick birthstones for each month.

With so many gemstones in different colors, August ended up with two. People born in this month who wear the two birthstones (Peridot and Spinel) receive power, influence, protection, and happiness. The Peridot is what empowers and guides people, while the Spinel keeps people from harm and sadness away.

It’s possible to wear these beautiful gemstones by themselves or together. You can find the Peridot and Spinel in a large range of colors making it possible to ensure the two gemstones complement each other in a beautiful piece of jewelry. The Peridot can be yellowish, brown, bright lime, or olive green. The Spinel can be orange, pink, purple or red. Many of the Spinel gemstones can take on different colors when the light hits it from various directions.

Natural vs. Synthetic Gemstones: It’s All About the Energy

Natural vs. Synthetic Gemstones: It’s All About the Energy

HS_GemstoneGuide_Header

Here at FREYANA, we are often asked about the difference between natural and synthetic stones. Natural gemstones (the kind used in every FREYANA piece without exception) have spent millions of years forming in rocks deep in the earth. These gems are intrinsically valuable because they have taken lifetimes to create, and their supply is limited. Every quality of a natural gem, from the richness of its color to its tiniest inclusions (or lack thereof), tells a unique story of the temperature, pressure, minerals and other properties of its mother-rock, and no two such stories are exactly alike.

By contrast, artificial stones are manufactured chemically in laboratories, allowing for quick mass production. Their supply is infinite, and their intrinsic value limited. And while synthetic stones do a fair job mimicking the outwardly properties of natural gemstones, they cannot recreate the energy in a natural gemstone.

Natural gemstones have spent their lifetime soaking up the earth’s vibrations, and as a result are commonly believed to hold a certain energy. Indeed, the notion of a “birthstone” is based on the idea that a gemstone’s unique vibrations can be used to help attract or repel certain energies from certain individuals.

But even gemstones beyond the well known birthstones have such powers.

For instance, gemstones in the quartz family help individuals amplify their intentions. In other words, wear a quartz and the energy you put out into the world will return to you tenfold. Amethysts, which fall within this family, are particularly powerful for those seeking protection. Similarly, pyrite helps individuals remain focused and on the correct path towards positive things in your life. In fact, many believe that pyrite can take neutral energy and transform it into positive energy. Gemstones can even be used in combinations – for instance, combining citrine, smoky quartz and rose quartz can help guard your mind, body and heart.

So the next time you purchase a gorgeous piece, consider the energy you want to manifest into the world and let it guide your selection. Or combine gemstones as fillers in our signature filigreed lockets in order to express your own unique intentions, and keep them close to your heart.

What’s in your heart?

The Maharaja Ring – Freyana Royal Vintage Jewelry

The-Maharaja-Ring-Freyana-Royal-Vintage-Jewelry

When we think of vintage gemstone jewelry, we are often inspired by the Mogul Emperors who ruled the Indian subcontinent for hundreds of years. Paintings from that era show royalty dressed in regalia studded with gemstones, such as moonstone, citrine and peridot. The Freyana Maharaja Ring is inspired by the ornate wardrobe and the vivid palate of colors represented in the art and architecture of the old world. Moonstone was picked for for the Maharaja Ring for its beauty and gemstone meaning. Ancient royalty often held moonstones to balance their emotions and to bring a sense of calm while making important decisions. Today we can only imagine the political intrigue of the royal courtrooms and the lavishness of their lifestyle, but we can appreciate the modern day beauty of the moonstone. Let the Maharaja Ring bring a touch of vintage royalty and a sense of balance to your life.
