June's two birthstones include Pearl and Alexandrite. Here, we are featuring pearls, grown in nature either on their own or more commonly, with a little help, as with cultured pearls. Formed inside oysters, pearls retain their form direct from nature. Thought to be a symbol of purity, ancient Greeks believed that pearls were the hardened tears of joy from Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Why not give the one you love pearls for their June birthday. Stop by our store to see our collection of pearls or alexandrite for June.

Emeralds usher in Spring as May's birthstone with their rich green colors. Long symbolizing love and rebirth, emeralds were also considered to aid in fertility. Historically in Egypt, Cleopatra famously wore emeralds during her life, while mummies were often buried with emeralds symbolizing eternal youth. Today, emeralds remain one of the rarest of gems and pair well with both yellow and white gold and when enhanced with diamonds. Check out our Emerald selection online at http://FBJewelers.com or stop by our store for a special May birthday gift.

Popular from the Middle Ages, through Victorian times, the 20th Century and today, Zircon, with its light blue color is thought to increase confidence and compassion, while helping to bring its wearer closer to their goals.

One of October’s two birthstones is the Opal, known as the Queen of Gems since ancient time because it encompasses the colors of all other gems. As unique as our fingerprints, the reds, blues, yellows and greens of opals create truly one-of-a-kind gem stones. The beautiful colors change as you turn and move the Opal allowing the light to shift the iridescent flashes within the stone. This feature gives the opal the unique characteristic of “going with everything” and can be worn with any color. Visit Frith & Bradshaw Jewelers and let us help you select the perfect Opals to celebrate October. If you prefer Tourmaline, October’s other birthstone, we have tourmaline jewelry as well. Stop by and see our selection of fine custom and estate jewelry.

Sapphire is the birthstone for September. These beautiful gem stones are believed to represent honesty, loyalty, purity and trust. Many also believe it can cure physical ailments, especially eye infections, headaches, ear ache and thyroid problems. Not all sapphires are blue. Some rare sapphires can be found in shades of pink and orange. However, the blue sapphire is what most people envision, making them one of the most popular gems for jewelry.
