Best Jewelry Stores in Dana Point Tell it All

What Happens by the Harbor in Dana Point Will Shock You!

Daniela and Eric met 7 years ago online in Dana Point, as most people tend to meet these days. Being skeptical of people you meet online, Daniela set up a time to meet with a 15 minute window.  She really had somewhere else to be after that 15 minutes. When she figured that if it wasn't a good match, then the quick meeting would be over and that would be that.

However, after the 15 minutes had expired to her surprise Eric leaned in and kissed her.  It was just the right kind of was perfect.  So instead of me leaving him at the bar, she asked him to join here on an adventure which he was happy to do.  After a year and a half of dating, Eric proposed to Daniela with an engagement ring he bought from a jeweler in Dana Point called Gems N’ Loans.

Why Gems N' Loans Has a Unique Collection of Exquisite Jewelry

Beyond the Masquerade
While the costume jewelry that appeared in the 1930s worn to embellish a costume or an outfit was attractive, it was usually constructed from inexpensive mass produced materials, mostly for consumers.

At your favorite jewelers in Dana Point, Gems N’ Loans likes to distinguish between jewelry that is fine and that which is only for costume.

What defines fine jewelry?

Fine jewelry of made to today, finds its roots dating back to the 19th century, and it consists of gold, platinum, and gemstones. Most predominant jewelry styles tend to conform to the artistic style of the times. 

Oddly enough, between 1910 and 1920, there was an artistic style known as Art Nouveau which became popular, and is described as abstract, flowing, containing flowers, serpents, and butterflies.

The depiction of women carved into the surfaces of many of this era's jewelry pieces, whether that be a brooch or a ring could be seen in the designs.

Designers began using techniques to decorate metals that were less expensive.

The difference between fine jewelry and costume jewelry is the quality of the metal used in the jewelry and the authenticity of the stones set into the pieces. Additionally, fine jewelry can last for generations, and it is often considered an investment or something worth collecting and passing down to family members.

Jewelers in Dana Point Offer 50% OFF Colored Gemstones

Lapis Lazuli and Gems N’ Loans Dana Point

In the fourteenth century, lapis lazuli stones were ground up and mixed with oils to create the highly prized and very expensive ultramarine used by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci’s in paintings in the Sistine Chapel. Ultramarine were also known as "blue gold,” because they were more expensive than gold in those days. Lapis was forbidden to commoners in ancient Egypt, and only royalty were permitted wear it. Blue was divine to them, so lapis was ground into a powder, then used to add color to the royal Egyptians and their statues. Lapis necklaces were also given to shy Egyptian children to help them be more courageous.

Ancient Hebrews believed the blue azurite in lapis was symbolic of heaven and the gold pyrite flecks symbolic of the sun, and some Biblical scholars believe that Moses' Ten Commandments were carved on lapis tablets.
