Charlene K Onyx Necklace Collections

Onyx is banded chalcedony that is found in many different colors including commonly black and white.

The opacity of black onyx is all the more striking when paired with 14K gold vermeil or sterling silver for the high-impact designs.

Origin of Black Onyx

Onyx is considered to be a protective stone worn when facing adversaries in battles or conflicts of all kinds. There is myth about onyx that says the goddess Venus was resting on the banks of the Indus River. As she slept, Cupid used the point of one of his enchanted arrows to give her a manicure. The parings of her nails then fell into the waters of the sacred river. Since the nails were of heavenly origin, they sank to the river bottom and were metamorphosed into onyx.

There are a lot of interesting stories and myths about onyx, from Indians and Persians believing that wearing onyx protected them from the evil eye; to placing onyx on the stomach of a pregnant woman in labor would reduce the labor pain and bring on earlier delivery. Onyx has been used for protection, defense against negativity. Onyx is said to help with your rejuvenation, intuition, balance, grounding, self-confidence and more. Seriously, Google Black Onyx.

Regardless of the origin, the meaning or the reason; these beautiful black onyx necklace collections from Charlene K are STUNNING!! For more information about our Onyx collections, please contact us at: info@CharleneK.com

Charlene K Green Turquoise Gold Ring

Lime Green Turquoise is very popular for its bright color that stands out in Southwestern Jewelry. The lime green color also goes great with other colorful gemstones such as Coral, Spiny Oyster, Lapis, Sugilite and even Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. Lime Green Turquoise is one of the most desirable colors in multi-colored Inlaid Jewelry as well. It is truly a beautiful gemstone and is also a rarity for Turquoise to be Lime Green. Lime Green Turquoise actually lacks certain minerals (mainly copper) which is the reason it is colored lime green. There are other gemstones such as Faustite, Calcasiderite and Variscite that come close to Lime Green Turquoise but they are not actually Turquoise.

Charlene K Fresh Water Pearl Collection

What is Pearl? A hard, lustrous spherical mass, typically white or bluish-gray, formed within the shell of a pearl oyster or other bivalve mollusk and highly prized as a gem.

Freshwater pearls form in various species of freshwater mussels, family Unionidae, which live in lakes, rivers, ponds and other bodies of fresh water.

The value of the pearls in jewelry is determined by a combination of the luster, color, size, lack of surface flaw and symmetry that are appropriate for the type of pearl under consideration. Among those attributes, luster is the most important differentiator of pearl quality according to jewelers.

All factors being equal, however, the larger the pearl the more valuable it is. Large, perfectly round pearls are rare and highly valued. Teardrop-shaped pearls are often used in pendants.

Shapes: Pearls come in eight basic shapes: round, semi-round, button, drop, pear, oval, baroque, circled and double bouldered. Perfectly round pearls are the rarest and most valuable shape. Semi-rounds are also used in necklaces or in pieces where the shape of the pearl can be disguised to look like it is a perfectly round pearl. Button pearls are like a slightly flattened round pearl and can also make a necklace, but are more often used in single pendants or earrings where the back half of the pearl is covered, making it look like a larger, rounder pearl.

Drop and pear shaped pearls are sometimes referred to as teardrop pearls and are most often seen in earrings, pendants, or as a center pearl in a necklace. Baroque pearls have a different appeal; they are often highly irregular with unique and interesting shapes. They are also commonly seen in necklaces. Circled pearls are characterized by concentric ridges, or rings, around the body of the pearl.

In general, cultured pearls are less valuable than natural pearls, whereas imitation pearls have almost no value. One way that jewelers can determine whether a pearl is cultured or natural is to have a gemlab perform an X-ray examination of the pearl. If X-rays reveals a nucleus, the pearl is likely a bead-nucleated saltwater pearl. If no nucleus is present, but irregular and small dark inner spots indicating a cavity are visible, combined with concentric rings of organic substance, the pearl is likely a cultured freshwater. Cultured freshwater pearls can often be confused for natural pearls which present as homogeneous pictures which continuously darken toward the surface of the pearl. Natural pearls will often show larger cavities where organic matter has dried out and decomposed.
