Gemstone stud earrings and real gold
mountings are still available here.
The gems are real natural gemstones in a
generous size. Each gem is 7 mm in width, in a classic round shape, and fully
faceted and polished to bring out the brilliant color and natural sparkle.
Red Garnet -
This gem is THE classic red gem for earrings. Every woman has, or needs, at
least one pair of garnet earrings.
A fashionable gem in a sweet orange-yellow hue. I think this is the most
attractive citrine color. Very nice earrings!
Paraiba Topaz - The intense blue-green
color of this gem stone is strikingly similar to the very costly Paraiba
Tourmaline from the same area.
Blue Topaz - This is our very popular
"Top Swiss Blue" gem. Always in style and very appealing.
Royal Amethyst -
The fabulous purple gem, this time from Brazil. It's a classic gem for earrings.
Amethyst always ranks among the top five most popular colored gems.
Oro Verde -
This beautiful and intriguing gem has an interesting name. Oro means
"gold" in the Spanish language and Verde means "green".
Oro Verde is a stunning gold-green colored gem in
the same family as citrine and amethyst.
These are all beautiful studs in a great size,
made with natural gems and 14 karat.gold mountings.
are solid 14 karat yellow gold... not gold plated nor even gold filled. The
posts and backs are also solid 14 karat gold.
Several years ago we were advised that the
price of commodities would continue to rise for the foreseeable future.
Financial and manufacturing trade groups were advising manufacturers to hedge
their basic materials.
For The Dorado Company, that meant buy as
many of the gold mountings and gems that we use to make our popular gemstone
earrings as we could afford.
So we bought a ton of each! Well, maybe
not a ton... but we bought a several years' supply. Now we're glad that we did.
Gold prices have tripled, and many manufacturers have switched to silver or
other metals to keep their jewelry affordable.
Our popular gemstone stud earrings are still
selling at the old price.

'Fancy Intense Pink' Diamond
Sells For $46 Million
Last month we wrote about a rare diamond to be auctioned by
Sotheby's in Geneva, Switzerland.
The gem is graded "fancy intense pink" and internally flawless.
This magnificent emerald cut diamond weighs 24.78 carats. It is generally
recognized as the largest fine pink diamond known to exist.
Sotheby's Geneva sold the diamond on November 16, 2010. Four
bidders competed for the gem. The bidding was finally won by Patti Wong, bidding
on behalf of British diamond magnate Laurence Graff.
Sotheby's estimated the diamond's sale price to approach $38 million USD.
It sold for a world record price of $46.1 million.
