This time of year, many of us are feeling overwhelmed with shopping lists and holiday events. One of the reasons it’s so stressful is because there are more gift options than ever before. At SAZ Gems and Jewelry, we thought we could take some stress off your plate and present some gemstones that make for perfect gifts.
Gemstones and jewelry have been given as gifts for centuries, and unlike fancy new technology gadgets, they won’t be replaced by something better in a few years. Take a look at some of these beautiful gift options that will make your friends and family will cherish for a long time to come.
14KT Yellow Gold Tsavorite Garnet Ring
Tsavorite is the stone of benevolence, vitality, prosperity, vigor, and compassion. It is believed to help its wearer discover the beauty within themselves and others. The name Tsavorite originated in 1967 when Tiffany decided to name it after the Tsavo East National Park in Kenya. This gorgeous ring makes for a great gift and is available in our studio for only $175. Click here to learn more about it.
Vintage Sterling Silver Lapis Lazuli Pendant Earrings
Known as a highly spiritual stone, Lapis Lazuli is considered the stone of truth and friendship. It brings harmony, love and protection to relationships. Its name stems from its deep blue color; ‘lapis’ is the Latin word for stone and ‘azula’ means blue. It was treasured by ancient civilizations for its vivid color. These earrings pair quite well with women who have blue eyes. Learn more about these earrings by clicking here.
