Sea Blue Aquamarine

From the palest sky-blue to a deep sea-blue, the value of an aquamarine is determined by the color which is determined by traces of iron, the more intense and vivid the blue, the more valuable the gem. The origin of Sea Blue Aquamarine® is lbadan, a city in the hiliy, forested region of southwestern Nigeria.

Aquamarine symbolizes youth, hope, health and fidelity. Legend tells that this soothing blue gem also places a soothing calm in marriage.

Sea Blue Aquamarine® can be found within several Le Vian® brands depending on its accent stones: with Chocolate Diamonds®, le Vian Chocolatier®; with Blueberry Diamonds®, Le Vian Exotics®.

"Le Vian® aimed to find the perfect balance between soothing blue deep blue for its Sea Blue Aquamarine®, the March birthdstone, which uses the more saturated blues of ® and brings out their pedigree with special Le Vian® cutting techniques. "

MINT JULEP QUARTZTM

Quartz Family | Mohs Scale: 7-7.5

In its purest form, quartz is colorless but is also found in many spectacular colors. Le Vian® offers many different flavors of quartz in its collections including the soothing mint green Mint Julep Quartz™.

"Mint Julep Quartz™ is the ideal gem for big stone designs with a soothing mint green flavor."

NEOPOLITAN OPALTM

The lore of opals is plentiful, just like the variety of colors found in this fascinating, kaleidoscopic gem. The Romans believed it was the most powerful of gems and named the stone "opalus". The Greeks thought opals gave them the power of prediction. Europeans saw a symbol of hope, purity and truth. One famous opal "The Burning of Troy" was given by Napoleon to Josephine.

Internal diffraction is what creates the colors you see in an opal and provides its shimmering iridescence. The colors dependent on the size of the silica spheres within the stone. Small spheres show blue, the largest show red and other colors too. The value is determined by the amount of color play within the stone although for many the colors and patterns favored are personal taste.

Neopolitan Opal™ comes from only one mine - the new Yahwah mine in Ethiopia - and features an intriguing play of background colors combined with a captivating iridescence which blends deliciously with Le Vian® flavors of gold and diamonds, especially Strawberry Gold® and Chocolate Diamonds®

"What Le Vian® loves about Ethiopian Chocolate OpalTM is the unmatched iridescence, the flavorful body, and the higher hardness and durability compared to the milky look and softness of the Australian variety."

BLUEBERRY SAPPHIRETM

Throughout history, sapphires have always been associated with the color blue, perhaps most likely due to their name, which comes from the Greek word sappheiros (blue stone). Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. In history, clergy members wore the gem to symbolize Heaven. In ancient Greece and Rome, the royals believed sapphires protected them from envy and harm. Sapphires have also been closely associated with romance and the royals, most recently in modern times. In 1981, Prince Charles gave Lady Diana Spencer a blue sapphire engagement ring. The same ring was later given to Kate Middleton by Prince William

But all sapphires are not blue and, in fact, come in a rainbow of colors including varying shades of blue as well as “fancy sapphires” in pink, yellow, orange, lavender, purple. Blues can be pure blue but may have a range from greenish blue to violet blue. The blue in a sapphire is the result of trace elements of iron and titanium; the more iron in the sapphire, the darker the blue.

Le Vian® offers both classic and contemporary looks with its Blueberry Sapphires® which were chosen from mines in Mozambique.

"Le Vian® utilizes exacting standards for its genuine sapphires, choosing only those with a rich royal blue, blueberry flavor for designs which feature the September birthstone"

FOREST GREEN TSAVORITETM

Tsavorite is a green garnet and, like other garnets, forms within metamorphic rocks; its rareness comes from its specific need for more unusual rock chemistries and special conditions to be in place in order for it to form.
The brilliant, high-grade green garnet is named in honor of the area in which it has only been found, the Tzavo National Park and the Tzavo River. The color scale of this gem is fresh and invigorating, ranging from a spring-like pale green to an intensely bluish-green to a deep forest green, which is the flavor of Le Viang Forest Green TsavoriteTM.

"We chose Honey GoldTM as a backdrop which intensifies the lively green flavor of Forest Green TsavoriteTM, one of the brightest green gems in the 50 Shades of GreenTM trend"
