New Patriotic Lapel Pins

Now you can wear more than just an American Flag lapel pin to express your patriotic feelings about our country!  We have added several colorful new pins with flag motifs, as well as pins with traditional written expressions of God and Country.  For instance, an old-fashioned American shield design echoes the stars and stripes in a unique, enameled 14K Gold lapel pin, the #6073 "American Shield of Honor" pin, shown to the left. Another design is our "One Nation Under God" Lapel Pin , which allows you to wear the sentiment expressed in the words of our Pledge of Allegiance to our flag:   I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."  It is available in 14K white and yellow gold, as well as a more economical 10K yellow gold version. Find these designs and many, many more in the Patriotic Lapel Pins section of our Viridian Gold web

More Sterling Silver!

Gold just doesn't seem to want to go down in price, so more folks are looking to sterling silver as their precious metal of choice.  Sterling silver is an outstanding jewelry metal--on most people, jewelry made of silver acquires a beautiful, mellow patina as it ages.  Some silver jewelry, though, is plated with rhodium to retard tarnishing, and this plating will prevent that patina from developing--it also will mean that you should not have to polish the item.  At Viridian Gold, we always indicate if an item is rhodium plated. We have added lots of new silver items in the last several months.  Like our #1187 Princess-Cut CZ Silver Ring , shown above, and the matching CZ Necklace and Earring Set , item #2183 shown to the right. Check our our huge Sterling Silver Collection , and find your perfect locket, earrings, ring, pendant or pin! On some folks, their body chemistry just won't allow them to wear silver--it will turn black after only a few hours of wearing!  And, som

The Magic of Opal

The opal is unique among gemstones because of its composition; it is made of hydrated silica spheres. These spheres reflect the light striking the opal like tiny prisms, creating thousands of rainbows which change in color as the stone is moved. Historically, the opal has been a symbol of fidelity and assurance, and at Viridian Gold, you will find it paired with diamonds or other gemstones in beautiful jewelry pieces. For instance, our classic White Gold Opal and Diamond Pendant #5145 is composed of a cabochon polished white opal, set in a white gold design embellished with three high-quality brilliant-cut white diamonds. Opal comes in other base colors besides white. A good example is our Yellow Gold Pink Opal Briolette Earrings #4060 , which is one of several opal earring styles we offer.
