Lose Yourself to the Rare Beauty of the Emerald

Deriving its name from Greece via Old French “esmeralde”, the emerald gemstone boasts a colour that is simply unparalleled…

A delicious green colour that is sure to complement any wearer, the emerald gemstone is a unique and beautiful stone that is becoming rare due to its limited availability. Due to its stunning magnificence, much legend has arisen from this gemstone such as bringing ‘good luck’ and ‘enhancing health and wellbeing’. Ancient Egyptians were also said to idolise the beauty of the emerald.

The history of the birthstone…

The birthstone came about when a connection to each of the birthstones was made to coincide with each month of the year and the 12 signs of the zodiac. With tastes, culture and society continuously advancing and changing, in our modern times the birthstone has become something many still hold close. Each month holds a different stone, and each stone has their own poem, and for this month of May which is represented by the emerald, we share a piece of the poem written by an unknown author:

“Who first beholds the light of day
In spring’s sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.”

A colour for harmony, balance and elegance…

With green representing harmony, balance, growth and hope, the emerald takes on an even more beautiful connotation linked with the wearer’s physical and emotional beauty. Said to rejuvenate, nurture and encourage, many who are attracted to the deep green of the emerald admire it for its intense colour and splendour.

Modern-day royalty still revere the emerald for its deep, gorgeous green colour

Queen Elizabeth II is said to be a big admirer of the emerald gemstone, and has so many jewels she needs a special room to house it all in (not including the Crown jewels!). Another well-known icon, Elizabeth Taylor, received an emerald brooch as a wedding present paired with an emerald necklace – donning herself in gorgeous greens.

Pop culture idol Christina Hendricks, known for her role in TV series Mad Men, has the emerald as her May birthstone, which would contrast beautifully with her magnificent auburn hair. She was also spotted at an event wearing a gorgeous emerald dress that showcased her voluptuous figure flawlessly and was set beautifully against her naturally light skin and deep auburn hair.

Complement your style with elegant emerald jewellery

The perfect colour to set against any skin type, the emerald gemstone boasts beauty, elegance and charm that is simply unmatched.

Make an Impression that Lasts with Aquamarine – the Gemstone of the Sea

Many believe aquamarines are solely available in blue, but at Kennedy Jewellers we have used unique green gemstones in our jewellery…

The aquamarine has been revered for its beauty and intensely blue colour, which is why it is named after the Latin words aqua, meaning water, and marina, which means the sea. But aquamarines do not always come in blue, and we at Kennedy Jewellers have taken advantage of this when using aquamarines in our designer jewellery to give our pieces a uniqueness that is unmatched.

Designer jewellery fit for a celebrity…

Celebrities such as Keira Knightly and quirky fashionista Lady Gaga both share birthdays this month, and both love jewellery designed to inspire, impress and make a statement. At Kennedy Jewellers in Coffs Harbour we have collaborated with prestigious designer Charlotte Lynggaard to make available one of the most beautiful and exclusive collections in Australia.

Utilising beautiful aquamarine gemstones, we are able to refine and perfect each piece to ultimate beauty, with every jewel telling its own story.

All about Amethysts

Looking for that perfect gift this month? You cannot go past the stunning amethyst…

Amethyst gemstones are vibrant and beautiful, which is why it is no surprise that many jewellers utilise the stunning appearance that naturally emanates in amethysts within the construction of their jewellery. At Kennedy Jewellers, we are lovers of the amethyst gemstone, and incorporate many different amethysts into our designer jewellery so you can adore and adorn them, too.

Amethysts are appealing to most as they are clear, brilliant and their appearance alters – meaning you could adorn yourself in amethysts and be continually surprised and delighted as their colours dance under different modes of light.

An amethyst’s beauty comes from within…

When looking at an amethyst, it is important to look for a balance of strong, deep purples whilst still retaining a hint of transparency – these amethysts are considered the most beautiful and the most valuable. Amethysts come in a wide variety of sizes, cuts and styles, choice in the end comes down to personal taste, finding the right stone that “sings” to you, a task we are ready and willing to assist you with. At Kennedy Jewellers in Coffs Harbour we are scrupulous about the gemstones we incorporate into our unique, one-of-a-kind jewellery and find it a pleasure explaining the nuances of our vast and unique fine gem collection.

The amethyst is the gift that keeps giving…

Amethyst was once used as a favoured jewellery gemstone by the ancient Egyptians, who are looked to even today for inspiration for modern jewellery designs. This makes amethyst the perfect gift for your loved one, with positive associations such as healing, positivity, balance and love. What better way to show you care than by giving beautiful amethyst birthstone jewellery this month?

Truly showcase your love and let it blossom this month with the gorgeous Lotus Pendant by Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen available at Kennedy Jewellers – a piece that incorporates beautiful Amethyst gemstones combined with 18ct yellow and rose gold with a hint of diamonds for a subtle trace of brilliance.

Look into the heart of this gorgeous amethyst ring and see yourself – at peace and in harmony with you and everything around you.
