Amazing Treasures ~ Mother's Day Gift Guide

Amazing Treasures has an AMAZING selection of jewelry and gemstones.  With over 350 items in her shop you are sure to find something you can not live without!  So whether you are looking for a Mother's Day or graduation gift you will not be disappointed.  Here are a few items I picked out and some information from Amazing Treasures.

Laser Cut, 5.68 carat total weight of the finest sapphires that change shape according to the direction you look at them from.  Pretty cool I think!
I tested the gemstones myself using a refractometer (the tool used to identify gemstones) and they tested out as genuine Sapphire and of the finest quality.
These earrings have a drop of 24 mm or 1 inch and at their widest are 6 mm or 1/4 inch.  I urge you to research sapphires for a price comparison so you'll know how under priced these are.  They are in a setting of 925 SS and 18K White Gold Plated.

There's not a lot more I can say about these gorgeous, unique earrings.  You must see them up close and personal to realize how magical they are.  I was fortunate enough to purchase two sets of these gemstones and settings, thus, I have two pair.  I believe I am keeping one for myself.

I realize they are a bit expensive, but my price is extremely low for the carat weight and quality of gemstone.  You won't find anything like this in the chain jewelry stores at the mall!  You'd have to go to Park Avenue or Rodeo Drive to find something like this.
I just love this new style with the large gemstones surrounded by natural chocolate diamonds with enamel color enhancements.  Yes, genuine, earth mined Chocolate Diamonds.

This has 6.77 carats of beautiful faceted Prasiolite (Green Amethyst) with 0.19 carats of natural rough Chocolate Diamonds.  You can see the enamel colored areas which enhance the Prasiolite.

These are not big and bold pendants.  They sound as if they are due to the carat weight and appear a bit bold because of the striking colors.  This one measures, from the top of the bale to the bottom point 50 mm or 2 inches x 27 mm or 1 1/16 inches in width.  The bales are large so an omega will fit.

They are crafted of Fine 925 Sterling Silver to which Brass has been added for the gold color.

This is my very favorite ring!  8.44 Carat Amethyst Cabochon in Snake's mouth.  The snake itself is full of beautiful Rubies, 0.30 carats with 0.75 total carats of White Topaz.

Size 7, this unusual beauty measures 3/4 inch from knuckle to knuckle x 3/4 inch in width.  It sill rise above your finger 1/2 inch.  Only the snake's mouth with the Amethyst will be above your finger. You'll notice the rubies and white topaz stop at a point where your finger begins on the sides.  This makes for a very comfortable fit.

I wouldn't say this is an every day ring, but it could definitely be a "signature" ring.   Imagine opening this uniquely lovely ring on Christmas.  There will be either silent amazement or squealing with happiness and surprise.

Did I mention the metal is a silver alloy which has been white gold plated?  Well...It is!

3.23 Carats of Magic Topaz Gemstone carved into a face, then set into a filigreed setting of Fine 925 Sterling Silver makes for one fascinating pendant.  You won't find this at the mall!

The pendant measures, from the top of the bale to the very bottom 32 mm or 1 1/4 inches x 19 mm or 3/4 inch wide.  The gemstone alone measures 11 x 9 mm which is 7/16 inch x 3/8 inch.  The bale opening is large so an omega will fit as well as the standard sized chains.
