New sparkly gems just arrived here at MaJe Gallery, to tantalize our eyes.

New Sparkly Gems – Pendants

Bill Booze is a master faceter of gemstones. That means he starts off with rough stones like these peridot samples…

Now look at the pendent on the left again, to see the result of Bill’s amazing skill in faceting gemstones to reveal the utmost clarity and sparkle within. Here’s that pendant on to give you an idea of the proportions.

New sparkly gems like this double peridot pendant look even better on a body.

A larger faceted round peridot is on top, while a smaller one is at the lower end of the arc. Sterling silver setting comes complete with 18″ sterling rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $400.

New sparkly gems like this 6.6 carat garnet in an emerald cut

If you love garnets, you know how unusual it is to find one this large without white or clear inclusions. At 6.6 carats, the clarity and depth of color on this beauty are inspiring. Set in a sterling silver setting, and comes complete with an 18″ sterling silver rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $500.

New sparkly gems like this triple-garnet pendant in sterling silver

An usual sterling silver setting for a trio of faceted round garnets shows that you enjoy beautiful jewelry with a unique character. These pendants are not for the woman who wants to look like everybody else. Includes 18″ sterling rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $400.

New Sparkly Gems – Rings

Even though March is nearly over, with aquamarine as the birthstone, I want to show you this new aquamarine ring from Bill Booze, our master faceter. The pale blue color looks stunning in this sterling silver setting.

The cool hue of this particular aquamarine is enhanced by the coolness of the sterling silver band and prongs. Check it out on my hand…

On the left, a pale pink morganite gem faceted by Bill Booze captures the imagination. In the same family as aquamarine (beryl), it is strong and brilliant with lots of sparkly – especially because of the additional facets Bill always adds to the underside of the gems he cuts. A simple sterling setting lets the stone show off its clarity. $400. Available in any size you need.

On the right is a spectacular smoky quartz stone, also faceted by Bill Booze. A very cool setting features an unusual sterling band with a squared-off top and 14k yellow gold prongs. $450. Available in any size you need.

New Sparkly Gems – Earrings

Okay, they’re actually glass that is as pretty as a gemstone. Enjoy these lovely new choices from Passiko.

Passiko tells the story about these mis-matched earrings she calls “Best Friend” earrings. Why is that? When you have a best friend, you have a lot of things in common…but not everything. Just like these earrings. Individually crafted from heavy sterling wire into beguiling curves and twists, and adorned with a hand-made glass bead by another artist from Washington’s peninsula. One-of-a-kind of course. These four are priced $32 – $38.

Thanks for coming along to see our new sparkly gems – and glass. Stop by to see them in person, and say hi!

Spectacular faceted aquamarine set in 14k gold

Finding aquamarines in this gorgeous shade of blue is becoming more and more difficult as they are harder to acquire due to over-mining. Our master faceted, Bill Booze, brought this out from his back stock, having purchased it over 20 years ago. The stunning color is enhanced by his masterful faceting techniques, resulting in a sparkling beauty that’s perfect for a very special March birthstone gift. Set in 14k yellow gold, the simple setting lets the stone show off its magic.
