Crislu Sparkle CZ Eternity 7/8″ Circle Pendant with 16″ Chain 2.8 cttw

Cubic zirconia (CZ) is the cubic crystalline form of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2). The synthesized material is hard, optically flawless and usually colorless.  Because of its affordable cost, durability, and close visual likeness to diamonds, synthetic cubic zirconia has remained the most economically important competitor for diamonds since commercial production began in 1976

Another “diamond” option is crystal.

Crystal glass is produced by melting a mixture of quartz sand, minium, potash and soda at high temperatures.

And no one makes more stunning crystals than Swarovski.

Daniel Swarovski was born in northern Bohemia (now the Czech Republic, 20 km from the current border with Poland. His father was a glass cutter and owned a small glass factory. It was there that the young Swarovski served an apprentice, becoming skilled in the art of glass-cutting. In 1892 he patented an electric cutting machine that facilitated the production of crystal glass.

Easter is April 1st.

Passover starts March 30th.

After the religious meaning of the holidays I see flowers and pastels associated with Spring.

I still like Easter baskets.  Except now, I would rather find jewelry instead of candy inside those little plastic eggs.

Butterflies for Spring

 Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.

St. Patrick’s Day occurs on March 17, in observance of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.

Flowering Myrtle 16″ Adjustable Pearl Necklace by Michael Michaud

This unique jewelry is made by creating moulds directly from botanical elements in a process similar to lost-wax casting. While traditional lost-wax casting begins with a hand-carved model of wax, Michael Michaud instead uses an actual leaf, branch or flower in place of the wax model. A mould is created around the botanical element and as it is heated the plant matter burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mould of itself.
