Feeling Blue this December?

Posted on the 5th December 2014

We are feeling blue today…not in a bad way but in a Tanzanite and Turquoise kind of way as we present December’s two colourful birthstones. Tanzanite has a shade a blue that is the most beautiful, mesmerizing blue with that slight gleam of luxurious purple. The Masai tribes used to give Tanzanite to their wives after giving birth to their first child. It is also an excellent stone for meditation, tanzanite can help increase spiritual awareness and make you more sensitive to experiences. Tanzanite can be made into your very own piece of bespoke jewellery or even a show-stopping bespoke engagement ring. See what elegant < a href=http://www.holtsgems.com/search.aspx?keywords=tanzanite>Tanzanite pieces we have to offer at Holts, including birthstone pendants and earrings. The other blue December birthstone is the sky-blue Turquoise. This calming coloured gemstones is one of the most ancient stones as well as described as a Holy Stone by bringing good fortune. Turquoise can be a mysterious in the sense that it can change colour when worn due to the oils and moisture on a person’s skin. In ancient Egypt, the gemstone was worn around the neck or wrist as protection against unnatural death. If they changed colour, the wearer was thought to have reason to fear the approach of doom…how very superstitious. Holts have a very vibrant collection of on –trend Turquoise jewellery for you to lust over. Until next time!
