Pearls are one of the most unique gemstones because they are produced by an unusual animal: The shelled mollusk. Throughout all of human history and across nearly all continents, pearls have had a very prominent cultural presence. From ancient Egyptians to Emperor Yu the Great of China’s Xia dynasty, this elegant gemstone has been a steadfast symbol of beauty, and it is equally as iconic in the 21st century. Check out some of Sherry Tinsman’s handcrafted pearl jewelry here.
Gaspéite is a very rare, yellowish-green mineral that doesn’t have as rich a history as pearls, but it’s a beautiful stone nonetheless. The name “gaspéite” comes from the region it was initially discovered in, the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec, Canada. The vibrant green gemstone can also be found in mines across several other countries, such as Australia, Italy, Greece, and South Africa, to name a few. In America, the Tinsman family crafts extraordinary handmade jewelry with gaspéite and sterling silver.
Another stone with a rich, extensive history is turquoise. That’s right, it’s not just a color. In fact, the color’s name is based on the turquoise stone in the first place. The mineral is opaque with a blueish-green hue, and its value has sustained for many years. It was even considered a holy stone in ancient Egypt, where turquoise-furnished graves were discovered that were made around 3000 BC. Sherry Tinsman Metalsmith has a vast collection of handmade turquoise jewelry available.
The three summer gemstones we discussed in this article will complement your summer outfits perfectly. When crafted by a skilled, passionate jeweler like Sherry Tinsman, pearls, gaspéite, and turquoise are gemstones you simply can’t go wrong with.
