April's Birthstones: Herkimer Diamond & Quartz
Babes with April birthdays have long been considered “the lucky ones”, because the traditional birthstone for April is diamond!
Since diamonds are pricy, and often mined in conflict zones, we opt for quartz and Herkimer diamonds for an ethical alternative. Don’t worry, they still have that diamond sparkle that we all love, and they’re a stone you can feel great about wearing! Our Iridescent Ombré Rings have enough sparkle to stand on their own, but mix and match so well with other pieces.
Quartz is the master of all healing crystals. It is thought to amplify energy, and it’s a very powerful stone. Pair it with one of our other pieces to amplify an intention, or wear our Herkimer Diamond Cuff on its own. This crystal is thought to improve mental capabilities, protect from harm, and promote vitality & health.
Herkimer Diamonds are a variety of quartz, and they’re mined in Herkimer Country, NY. We often head to New York to collect more herkimers for the jewelry designs from a family-owned operation.
The Herkimer diamonds used in our Herkimer Diamond Studs are straight out of Herkimer County!
Herkimers have the physical shape of a diamond, and so much shine. They’re considered to be the most powerful of the quartz crystals.
For a fresh take on quartz, we love our Green Ombré Ring. It contains prasiolite, which is green quartz/amethyst. If your style is more colorful, this is the April birthstone ring for you.
