Semiprecious Gemstone Jewelry







RHODONITE is named after the Greek word for Rose, Rhodon. The color usually ranges from delicate to dark pink, red, peach-to-salmon, and orange - sometimes with a gray-to-black manganese matrix (streaks) of varying thickness. Stones may be light or very dark, and have a vitreous luster that sometimes appears “pearly.” While some Rhodonite stones are highly polished(like the ones in Miriam's Salmon-Pink and Black Necklace), others in Miriam’s Rhodonite jewelry collection are created using coarse or textured stones that show fine granular aggregates, giving them a flat granite-like finish. Both Rhodonite varieties are beautiful! Rhodonite is found in Australia, Finland, Japan, Canada, Madagascar, Mexico, the Urals in Russia, Sweden, South Africa, Tanzania, and in the United States in New Jersey. Rhodonite is sometimes confused with Rhodochrosite, which has raspberry red and pink tones, and a creamy white marble coloration that appears as light to dark stripes with zigzag bands.

The Gemological Institute of America Inc (GIA) calls pearls the best-loved gems of all time. The most familar colors are white and cream (a light yellowish brown). Black, gray, and silver are also common, but the range of pearl colors extends to every hue. The main color, or "body color," is often modifed by additional colors called "overtones," which are typically pink or rose, green, purple, or blue. Some pearls also show an iridescent quality phenomenon known as "orient." Below is Miriam's Pink Pearl Collection. Although difficult to photograph, many of the pearls in this collection show this lovely iridescent quality. Click here to see Miriam's Pearl Collection in other colors.

Rose Quartz is the rosy pink variety of Quartz, which comes in a rainbow of colors as well as crystal clear. The pink to rose red color is completely unique, unlike any other pink mineral species. The pink color is usually soft, ranging from very light pink to medium pink in intensity. Most stones are hazy (or turbid) and translucent - too cloudy to be used as a cut gemstone. In fact, a clear gemstone quality Rose Quartz is rare.
