Indie Wed

What an exciting year already! I can’t believe it’s almost February!

Currently I’m preparing for my next big project, Indie Wed, an alternative to the traditional bridal expo. If you are getting married in the near future, or know someone who is, and you live in Chicago, then you should definitely try to attend this beautiful and artistic event.

At Indie Wed there will be many different vendors, giving you the opportunity to pick and choose one-of-a-kind wedding items such as jewelry, decorations, flower arrangements, cakes, music and much, much more! While picking and choosing the pieces to your unique wedding, you will also be supporting Chicago’s smaller, independent businesses.

I myself will be showing samples of wedding and engagement rings and I couldn’t be more excited to be part of this important event! For those of you interested in collaborating on rings, make sure to stop by my booth #54 on the first floor.

If you’re not getting married, but would like to reset your engagement ring or create an anniversary band, please don’t hesitate to contact us to set up an appointment. If you’re not in Chicago, please don’t let geography stop you. We work with people virtually all the time, it’s amazing how that technology works 😉

Indie Wed will take place on February 2nd, from 10 am until 4 pm at the Ravenswood Event Center. The entrance is located at 4043 N. Ravenswood Avenue, Chicago. Tickets are now on sale, please click here to purchase your ticket.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Rebecca Zemans News

What a wonderful Autumn we are having in Chicago! I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful fall weather as much as I am. I love to see the leaves change and get cozy on my couch with a nice cup of tea after a long day of work.

Because this time of year brings a sense of change and reflection, I decided to dedicate this post to everything that is new at Rebecca Zemans Jewelry.

First and most importantly, we have updated our Etsy Shop! If you are interested in buying jewelry from us, or are way ahead on your Christmas shopping, make sure to check out the jewelry here. Of course if you see something that you like, but you would like to add your own personal touch, then we are, as always, available and more than happy to set up an appointment to meet in person or talk on the phone.

Also, we are planning on introducing the ENTIRE Rebecca Zemans Team (RZT) to you in a new series of blog posts, because you guys need to know who helps create the magic in the studio, so stay tuned!

Peridot – Stone of the Month

Bright green peridot is the perfect stone for your summer wardrobe and one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color, an bright olive green. The vivacity and hue of the green, depends on how much iron is in the chemical make-up of the mineral. The color of the gems can vary from yellow-to lime-to olive-to brownish-green. The most valued color is a dark olive-green.

Green is the color of life, growth, balance and healing so the peridot was used frequently all over the ancient world and has become very popular again in modernity. It was used in Egyptian jewelry as far back as the early 2nd millennium B.C by high priests to guard against jealousy. The ancient Romans were also fond of this gem to relieve depression because of its green radiance, which doesn’t diminish even in unnatural light.

Peridots can be found all over the world and only comes in one color: various shades of green. The most beautiful ones are found on the border or Pakistan and Afghanistan and in Myanmar. The largest cut peridot is a 310 carat (62 g) stone which is housed in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.
