Happy Halloween: The 3 Spookiest Gemstones

It’s Halloween! Whether you’re young enough to trick-or-treat or old enough to find joy in passing out the candy instead, everyone loves a little bit of heart-pumping, goosebump-giving spookiness on this fall holiday. Not a fan of the horror movies? We’ve rounded up the 3 spookiest gemstones we can think of… celebrate with us instead! The Hope Diamond We’re starting off strong with what is potentially the most famous blue diamond in all of history. The Hope Diamond can be traced back for centuries, mostly due to the dark strand of mischief that follows it. Named for the Hope family who owned the diamond in the mid 19th century, this stone weighs a whopping 45.25 carats and is believed to have originated in India in the 17th century. Murders, curses, and unlucky souls have compounded upon this stone, but so has the price tag… each time a new story unfolds. Sounds a little fishy, no? KOH-I-NOOR Sometimes known as “Mountain of Light,” the Koh-i-Noor is a huge diamond weighing over 105 carats. Ownership has changed hands many times throughout the centuries, but the desire to own this precious stone has led to bloodshed, wars, and many forms of deception. Sources have dated the fantastic jewel back to 3000 BC, but others place it closer to the 1650’s— all agree that the stone is of Indian origin. Ultimately, the British became owner of the diamond… and the association of misfortune that came with it. As the Koh-i-Noor developed a strong history of betrayal, it became a symbol of bad luck to any man who wore it. For this reason, only female members of the royal family ever wear it to this day. Delhi Purple Sapphire Have you ever read The Purple Sapphire by Edward Heron-Allen? Maybe give it a go. Also hailing from India, this The tale of woe that surrounds the gem’s lore was uncovered by a curator at London’s Natural History Museum. Along with the stone, the curator found a typewritten note detailing the misfortune that would befall the owner of the sapphire. One of alleged cursed was Edward Heron-Allen, himself. He immediately ran into difficulties upon receiving the stone, which led him to believe the gemstone was cursed. Each time he attempted to part with the stone, it found its way back to him. At Sorg Jewelers we pride ourselves on service, having offered outstanding guidance and craftsmanship for over 120 years. From custom pieces to folkloric traditions, we have you covered from the moment you walk through our doors. Have more questions about the world of gemstones?

Getting to Know the Diamond: The King of Stones

The diamond is perhaps the most well-known gemstone—found in the quintessential engagement ring, countless songs (Marylin and Rihanna, anyone?), and in almost every movie, tv-show, and pop culture medium you can think of. It is revered for its color, or lack thereof, but can present in nearly any color you can imagine. What you may not know, however, is that this April birthstone boasts many folkloric and symbolic connections throughout the ancient and modern-day world. When it comes to choosing a piece, all of us at Sorg Jewelers want our clients to feel completely in the loop from start to finish. Join us on this month’s birthstone journey as we uncover and learn about the King of Stones.  The Stone of Healing Many ancient civilizations believed that diamonds were the physical embodiment of lightning on earth and that they, in turn, boasted incredible healing powers. Brain diseases and toxins in the blood, among many other ailments, were thought to be curable if the afflicted possessed and wore the coveted stone. It was not until the turn of the Renaissance when Pope Clement VII ingested a medicine based made of powdered diamonds and died, that it was understood eating diamonds would go on to kill more people than it helped. Diamonds in Ancient Greece and Rome The Romans and Greeks believed diamonds to be the tears of the gods or pieces of broken shooting stars. The idea of diamonds equating to love dates back to Roman literature which claimed that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds. This idea is seen in Classical Greek philosopher Plato’s writings too, as he believed diamonds to be living beings that could think and feel. Creativity and Mental Health Hildegard of Bingen, the German mystic, went as far as to claim that sucking on diamonds could prevent lying, fear, and anxiety. Legends state that diamonds can induce creativity and imagination in those who wear them. People have claimed the gems can open their minds to impossible ideas and make them possible—such as the manifestation of wealth and abundance.  ...
