Instantly identifiable, there is little confusion to what stone a turquoise gem is. Minerals like copper and iron give it distinctive blue and green tones and its matrix of brown, gray and gold can either increase its value or decrease its beauty depending on your personal preference.
Turquoise was love at first sight for Karen. Her eye for turquoise developed early on as she was raised near the region famous for mining this rich, blue gem. The stone features heavily in the jewelry of indigenous tribes of the US Southwest region, holding importance as an attractor of good fortune and a provider of strength.
“When people think of diamonds they think white and bright, not dark and black. But the black tells its own unique tale.” - Karen Karch
The Black Diamonds we set in our designs are carefully selected, avoiding those with unattractive visible flaws and inconsistent color. We prefer to use rose-cut and round brilliant cut gemstones to maximize their glimmer. Having used black diamonds for so many years, we know the questions that most people have so we’ve highlighted some important info for those interested in adding black diamonds to their jewelry assortment.
It all began when we created Mini Milagros-inspired Charms for our Karch Wolfe Collection. Although we’d heard the term gold-filled before, we weren’t completely clear what it really was. Gold-filled chains entered our radar as a possible solution to maintaining the golden look we hoped for at an optimal price.
As our research continued, we soon discovered gold-filled was an excellent option. Excited by the response to the launch of these designs, we've added more products to the Karch Wolfe Collection highlighting the amazing look of 14k gold-filled baubles. With a wide selection of chunkier chains as well as hoops with detachable multi-chain charms, there are plenty of golden treasures to collect.
