Wind and Fire
A lot of people took home Wind and Fire bracelets and Spectrum of Color earrings during the holidays. If you haven't seen them yet make sure that you stop in and check them out. The bracelets are fun and come in a variety of styles and the earrings have lots of color and sparkle too!
The Big Game

Hope you enjoy the big game later today. Craig will probably watch, even though the Packers are not playing. Hope everyone enjoys the game and the commercials too!
Happy Valentine's Day!
We know that everyone doesn't have a Valentine but you are all Valentines to us. We hope that you all enjoy the day and will accept our request to be our Valentine. We love you all!
Kimberly's Carats

Because of its wine-like color, Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. It was also believed that wearing amethyst prevented drunkeness.

Fine amethysts have been set in religious jewelry and royal crown jewels for ages. 
Jewelry Vending Machine
Have you heard about the jewelry vending machine in New York City? Jewelry designer Marla Aaron has developed the machine and has moved it around the city to different locations. Aaron who sells her jewelry at 40 brick and mortar stores around the world got the idea after seeing similar machines in Japan. So far the machine has been located near established shops or in secure areas but it weighs several hundred pounds and has security cameras to deter theft. What do you think? Would you buy fine jewelry from a vending machine?
February Birthstone
Februarys birthstone, Amethyst, was as expensive as ruby and emerald until the 19th Century, when Brazil’s large deposits were discovered. It was believed to prevent intoxication - amethystos means “not drunk” in ancient Greek. Today, as the most valued quartz variety, amethyst is in demand for designer pieces and mass - market jewelry alike, and its purple to pastel hues retain wide consumer appeal.
