Unique gifts: Buying Vintage Jewelry in Washington, DC
Vintage pieces are one-of-a-kind. They are often handmade, always distinctive and even sometimes created by techniques no longer practiced today. When selecting a gift for someone with a June birthday you can choose from the following gemstones:
- Pearls: This is the only gemstone made by a living creature. The finest pearls appear creamy white because of their naturally reflective luster but there are cultured freshwater pearls that can be dyed colors such as yellow, green, pink and black.
- Moonstone: A misty stone that the ancient Romans and Greeks associated with deities of the moon. The stone is formed in layers, giving the surface a glowing appearance when light falls between them.
- Alexandrite: A very rare, color-shifting stone supposedly named for Russian Czar Alexander II. It is often described by gem aficionados as “Emerald by day, ruby by night.”
