Voyagers Tip of the Month

 Diamonds, are April's Birthstone.
Traditional Diamonds are colorless, brilliant and just plain beautiful. 
However, those looking for a bit of creativity, fancy colored
Diamonds may be for you.

Fancy colored diamonds are almost as much fun as colored gemstones! Like colored gemstones, each one is different. They come in fabulously beautiful pale pinks, blues, pale to bright yellows, oranges, greens, and all those brown colors that are now given names like cognac and champagne.

        
traditional  - green - teal - black

The hardness of tradition and fancy colored diamonds contribute to its suitability as a gemstone. Because it can only be scratched by other diamonds, it maintains its polish extremely well. Unlike many other gems, it is well-suited to daily wear because of its resistance to abrasions.

If you're like most people, you would like to know more about how to buy a diamond. That's one of the reasons the American Gem Society came into existence over 70 years ago.  Thanks to these gemological pioneers, we now have precise standards for evaluating quality diamonds, commonly known as the 4 Cs: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight.  Diamonds of a different color, are called fancy colored diamonds, and fall under a different grading scale.

Reuse, Recycle, Repair, Remount and Redesign 

- 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.
