Humphrey Creole colored gemstone
Humphrey Colored Gemstone Hoop Earrings Stainless Steel 14*7mm
with clip mechanism, steel pin with colored gemstone 4x4mm
The side and inner surfaces of the hoop earrings are polished. The outer surface is matted. The hoop earrings run eccentrically (thicker at the top and thinner at the top) so that the stone does not pierce the inside and the hole in the ear is nicely covered. All edges are softened and feel soft. Humphrey uses a nickel free stainless steel.
The spring (patented clasp) is integrated in the earrings and cannot be lost. The weight is low. This ear jewelery is therefore also suitable for sensitive ears.
The colored gemstones are held in place by the force (tension) of the earring band. They seem to float in the earrings. To ensure this, two notches in the shape of colored gemstones are made in the splint using computer-controlled machines.
Humphrey has perfected this setting technique since the mid-1990s and offers a 2-year guarantee on the secure hold of the gemstone provided it is handled properly. However, the lifespan is unlimited. Most of the jewelry ever produced by Humphrey is still worn.
Topaz takes its name from an island in the Red Sea, which in ancient times was called Topazos. In fact, another mineral, olivine, which was long confused with topaz, was mined there. Another explanation of the name traces it back to the Sanskrit word tapas, meaning "fire" or "shining".
Known for at least 2000 years, topaz is one of the precious stones that form the foundations of the twelve gates to the city of God, New Jerusalem. These stones should serve as a symbol of beauty, splendor and as a defense against enemies.
The color of topaz range from yellow, light blue, light green, tawny, reddish brown, red, violet and colorless. Humphrey only uses blue and white topazes. Many topazes are changed in color by treatment. This also applies to our blue topazes, as these would otherwise result in enormous prices.
With a grade of 8 on the 10-part Mohs scale, topaz is one of the hardest of all gemstones - only diamond, sapphire and ruby are even harder.
Tourmaline Pink and Green:
The name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese word "tura mali". Translated, it means something like "stone with mixed colors".
An old legend from Egypt says that a tourmaline traveled over a rainbow on the long way from the center of the earth up to the sun. Along the way he took in all the colors of the rainbow. That is why it is still called the "gem of the rainbow". Tourmaline is available in more than 50 shades from colorless to pink, red, yellow, brown, green and blue to black. A single crystal can often have multiple colors.
Humphrey only uses pink and green tourmalines.
Thanks to its excellent hardness of 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, the stone is suitable for jewelery of all kinds.
Lolith Blue Violet:
According to an investigation, the iolite, also known as cordierite, is said to have been used for navigation in the Viking Age, even when the sky was overcast, due to its ability to make polarized light visible. This so-called sun stone is known from legendary traditions.
Iolite is derived from the Greek "ion" and means something like violet.
The predominant color of iolite is deep blue to blue-violet.
With a Mohs hardness of 7 to 7.5, iolite is one of the hard minerals
The amethyst is a stone that emits a special fascination because of its dark violet colour. The word violet means tremendous strength. The color occurs in nature wherever there is a special power and energy.
The name of amethyst comes from the ancient Greeks. They believed that the stone protects against drunkenness. According to an old legend, the amethyst was a nymph that Bacchus, the god of wine, fell in love with. However, the nymph did not return this love and his advances were blocked. She asked the goddess Diana for help and she turned her into a gemstone. When Bacchus realized he had lost his love, he poured his best wine over the stone, causing it to change color. This gave the stone a protective effect against drunkenness.
Gem quality amethyst is a popular and widely used gemstone. Amethyst's purple color ranges from a very light, slightly pink to a very dark purple. Dark purple stones are considered particularly valuable. Amethyst has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs hardness scale.
