Antique style jewelry is a popular look that is created by dipping the silver in an antiquing solution to darken the sterling silver to an aged patina which results in an aged antique style appearance. The antique silver effect is often used to create contrast and highlight details in the silverwork that would otherwise go unnoticed. Once all of the silver is oxidized black, the raised surface is polished to remove the patina and leave the deeper areas black for contrast. The oxidation is just a surface treatment and does not change the properties of the metal. It is possible to intentionally or accidentally remove the effect by using silver cleaning solutions or a buffing wheel.

Revered for its brilliant color, impressive durability, and unique brilliance, blue spinel has cemented its place as a sought-after gemstone in the world of jewelry.

Found in various parts of the world, including Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, and Vietnam, blue spinel has a remarkable geological origin. It forms in the earth's crust through a combination of elements such as aluminum, oxygen, and magnesium. The presence of trace elements contributes to the gem's distinct blue coloration.
Aside from its allure and beauty, blue spinel is also valued for its exceptional durability. Ranking 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness, it is a gemstone well-suited for everyday wear in various types of jewelry, from rings to necklaces and earrings. Jewelers love working with blue spinel due to its excellent toughness, allowing them to create intricate and stunning designs that highlight the gem's brilliance and color.
The popularity of blue spinel in modern times has grown steadily, as more people become aware of its existence and extraordinary attributes. It has found its way into both high-end and artisanal jewelry pieces, appealing to those who seek a unique gemstone alternative to more traditional options.
In conclusion, blue spinel is a mesmerizing gemstone that combines breathtaking beauty, durability, and rarity.
