Voyagers Jewelry Tip of the Month:
As late winter creates cabin fever,
we begin to think of Spring and all its colors,
as we raise a toast to the Emerald Isle.
Color appeals to our feelings directly. It makes us happy and cheerful,
livens us up or calms us down, and has a magical or liberating effect.
And where is color more lasting and more beautifully captured
than in a gemstone? In the fascinating world of precious stones,
emeralds glow in the fieriest green imaginable.
Aquamarines sparkle in a whole range of blues –
from the light blue of the sky to the deep blue of the sea.
Yet, how many people are aware of the fact that these gems,
different as they are, belong to a single family?
Aquamarine and emerald are both beryls.
Beryl gemstones come from granite, and in rough form are generally
tubular in shape. Ranging from to 7-8 on the Mohrs hardness scale
these gemstones are brittle but due to the wide variety of colors, are
still one the most popular and expensive.
Aquamarine, is the Birthstone

Reuse, Recycle, Repair, Remount
Unique and Custom creations are Voyagers specialty -
unlike most jewelers,
we do all work in house and are able to work with existing pieces to
make them "new" again from a good cleaning and polishing to adding
stones or reusing a part of the old design to create a new piece. This
ability to create brand new from scratch, innovative designs, to reusing
and redesigning existing pieces allows Voyagers to be your personal and
full service jewelers. We do free estimates for any design.
As always, we recommend that you regularly have your jewelry checked &
inspected. We can do that while you wait ... as well as keep
your jewelry sparkling & clean.....
After cleaning, we
will check for any missing stones; inspect each stone for
tightness; and look for chips, nicks and breakage.
Prongs, shanks and mountings will be inspected for wear and cracks.
If repairs are needed, we will make suggestions and discuss possible
options with you.
