Turquoise. Emerald. Ruby. Amethyst. Antique, contemporary, or in the raw, everyone has a personal favorite when it comes to gemstones — I’m an opal kinda gal, myself. In fact, we at the Etsy Blog find these natural wonders so intriguing that we’re dedicating the month of June to the pursuit of jewels and gemstones. We’ll be exploring the meanings behind birthstones, how to buy an engagement ring, jewel-toned shopping guides (isn’t emerald a beautiful color?), historical styles and trends in jewelry, and how-to projects that integrate your favorite crystals. Needless to say, we’re excited to spend more time in the Jewelry category, swimming around in a mountain of jewels like virtual Scrooge McDucks.
We’ll also be digging into all the products inspired by jewels. These are gem soaps!
