Gemstone Jewelry History - Apples of Gold Jewelry Gemstone Jewelry History - Apples of Gold Jewelry

Gemstone Jewelry

(PRWEB) June 2, 2007 -- Apples of Gold Jewelry has launched its gemstone jewelry history, myth, and symbolism section with expert insight not only on gemstone history and gemstone properties, but on the historical and sometimes religious and often mythological stories that surround gemstone rings and jewelry.

These include such gemstone lore as the "Breastplate of Aaron", from whose Biblical origins and aura the stories behind various gemstones arose. Other stories include Dionysus and the story of the Amethyst, the Hawaiian legend of Pele in the peridot gemstone, the mesmerizing power of the emerald gemstone, the story of 'the Onyx, Eros (Cupid), and Aphrodite', and more.

Although not attempting to cover every gemstone 'under the sun', but instead focusing on some of the more popular ones, the rich and knowledgeable articles are composed with relentless depth and continuity, in contrast to the many mass produced, hastily written and often-irrelevant content that many websites produce nowadays simply as feed for the search engines.

The most noteworthy of gemstone articles is perhaps their historical approach to the story behind, "The Breastplate of Aaron", a ceremonial garment designed by God to be worn by Aaron, Moses' brother, as he sat over Israel in judgment during the Children of Israel's 40 year trek in the wilderness:

"And thou shall make a breastplate of judgment with cunning work…And thou shalt set it in settings of stones, even four rows of stones: and the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle…And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond. And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst. And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx and a jasper; they shall be set in gold in their enclosings. And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names…everyone with his name shall be according to the twelve tribes…And Aaron shall bear the names of the children in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the Lord continually" (Exodus 28, 15-30).

"Moses is said to have received divine instruction for the construction of the gemstone adornment during his forty years in the wilderness," writes Apples of Gold Jewelry staff writer. "Aaron, Moses' older brother and himself a priest of Israel, served dutifully as Moses' 'nabi' or spokesman to his people, to Pharaoh, and during ceremonies".

From this origin of powerful, Godly material we begin to fathom of foundations of gemstone lore and the many miraculous and powerful attributes often associated with gemstone jewelry.

Filled with gemstone history and stories that can simply be enjoyed, the new Apples of Gold Jewelry gemstone section embarks on the challenging task of finding the commonalities between each gemstone while describing the various gemological attributes of each major natural gem. The Apples of Gold Jewelry gemstone selection debuted in May 2007 with "The Breastplate of Aaron", and articles on emerald rings, peridot rings, amethyst rings, onyx jewelry, and more, with a dozen or so more articles to follow in the weeks and months ahead. Articles to follow include articles on the aquamarine, citrine, diamond, garnet, pearl, ruby, sapphire, tanzanite, and topaz gemstones.

In addition to their rich gemstone jewelry articles, Apples of Gold Jewelry offers numerous categories of diamond and gemstone rings set in 14k gold. The quality of their jewelry is exquisite and their gemstone ring prices are more than reasonable and well below retail jewelry -- a great companion to their jewelry articles.

With masterful craftsmanship in both jewelry, research, and historical materials, the Apples of Gold Jewelry gemstone section is worth a good, slow, and deliberate read that is meant not only to educate, but to entertain and to simply be slowly and deliberately savored.
