The Spring 2019 edition of our Gemology magazine is now shipping with orders - you'll receive your complimentary copy with the first order you place between February 1st 2019 and April 30th 2019, while stocks last. The new edition is packed from cover to cover with features on gemstones, jewelry and fashion, and here's a closer look at what's inside.
We're taking a look at the jewelry designs that defined the mid-20th century, from the mid-1940s all the way through to the end of the swinging 1960s. This style defining era contributed so many timeless looks to the jewelry world that many are still hugely popular today.
