Spring is here, and it is the time of year to give your home an in-depth cleaning. Spring cleaning is all about cleaning your home after the enclosed winter months. The weather has changed allowing you to comfortably open your home and clear it of the extra dust and clutter.
Spring cleaning isn’t your basic cleaning but more about clean in the deep corners of your closet. One place that gets missed more season than one is your jewelry box.
Too often we forget to clean out our jewelry boxes from the clutter or old pieces we no longer wear. Some of this is because of pieces are broken and hold too much of sentimental value to get rid of them. Or other pieces we haven’t gotten around to fixing. Cleaning your jewelry once a year isn’t enough, and it is important to remove clutter from your box so all the other pieces don’t tarnish over time. Here are 3 ideas for your old jewelry this Spring.
Stop Procrastinating and Bring your jewelry into Repair
That is right, Master Jewelers has an on-site jewelry repair center. We have expert jewelers with over 20 years of experience waiting to help you with your latest jewelry repair. The hardest part is walking through our doors and starting the process. We will walk you through every step of the repair.
Turn your Old Jewelry into Something New
A popular way to reuse your jewelry is to melt your precious metals and custom make a new piece. A great option for all those broken chains or old items you no longer use is to create a custom piece of jewelry. At Master Jewelers, we can custom make any jewelry design you have in mind. You don’t have to get rid of your jewelry to make a more favorable piece. Instead, use the sentimental pieces to make a new piece you will love. Making a new piece will keep the sentiment, but replace it with something you will love to wear.
Sell your precious Metals and earn cash back
Another idea for your less sentimental is to let us buy back your Gold Jewelry. Certified Gold and other precious metal Buyers like Master Jewelers will give you the daily market price per ounce. It is a win-win. You get rid of those meaningless pieces of jewelry and get cash back. Who knew you could earn cash from cleaning.
This Spring don’t put off cleaning your jewelry box. Maybe you have pieces that fit into each category and that is ok. We can help you figure out which pieces you would like to use for each category. Come into our Indianapolis location or visit us online to see how we can help!
Diamonds are a popular choice for many reasons. They are brilliantly beautiful and make an undeniable statement with any attire. If you struggle to be unique with your style don’t worry diamonds can still add an unexpected flair.
Here are Five Fun Facts why diamonds are the all-time respected gemstone.
- Diamonds are forever- This statement couldn’t be truer. Diamonds are billions of years old dating back to Roman times. In fact, it was the Romans who believed diamonds came to earth from the tips of Cupid’s arrows. Probably a big reason we associate diamonds with love and romance.
- Brilliant things come from pressure- Diamonds take form underneath the ground. Around 100 feet below, these beautiful gemstones appear on earth through deep volcanic eruptions. They derive by pressure and heat to take their place here on earth’s surface. It is no wonder Diamonds are the most highly respected and valuable gemstone.
- Diamond Strong– Diamonds are the hardest natural substance known. Known for its durability, the only thing to cause a diamond to scratch is another diamond. “Adamas” is Greek for invincible and is where the word diamond comes from. Believed to be so indestructible, diamonds were said to cure illness and protect those who wore them.
- Diamonds come from all over the world. Over time, the main sources of diamonds have changed hands because of rapid sales versus the quantity of diamonds. History dates back to 1400 when the Diamond Indian trade boomed that led to Brazil holding the number one spot. Until later in the 1800s, South Africa discovered a big diamond reserve. In the present time, Diamonds aren’t so secluded and mined all over the world. At Master Jewelers, we strive to purchase ONLY a conflict-free diamonds and source precious metals from environmental-conscious foundries.
- The Bigger the Better- While we see celebrities post their engagement rings or diamond encrusted chains none of that could compare to Cullinan diamond. Cullinan is the largest diamond found with a carat size of 3,106K. Diamond clarity and carats factor heavily into the value of the diamond. Using an experienced jeweler is important when purchasing any gemstone but more so when shopping for loose diamonds.

The first month of the new year, January. The celebration of new beginnings and self-improvement. January sets the tone for happiness, health and wealth we hope to see continue throughout the year. Many put their best foot forward hoping to start the year off right. The Garnet gemstone couldn’t be any more suitable for any other month. The gemstone comes in various colors. However, the Red Garnet is most popular and represents the birthdays in January.
A red Garnet has the vivid color of a pomegranate seed. Its usage dates back to BC times and can be found all over the world. The stone comes from a mineral that produces very durable gemstones. Used by Royals and the Rich, Garnet gemstones have remained popular throughout the years.
Legends say Garnet gemstones bring peace, prosperity, and good health. It also symbolizes valued and deep bonded friendship. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a January birthday, you are in luck. Designed custom jewelry with Garnets is a great way to create a one of kind gift.
Know your design
Garnets are used in a variety of settings. Earrings-studs or chandeliers are great for showcasing the Garnets true beauty. Pendant necklaces make a bold statement to any attire.
Typically White Gold and Yellow Gold are ideal for Garnet pieces. The yellow hues and silver tones bring out the vibrant red color of the gemstone. Silver is also an option, but be careful when pairing with metals like Rose Gold. The pink hues may clash with the red of the gemstone, this is where picking the right gemstone is important.
Pick your Shade of Red.
Just like Garnets come in different colors, they are also found in various shades of red. Don’t assume that all Garnets are the same color of red. This is important to your design and the style you are trying to create. The shade of red will complement your design or destroy it. Make sure you do your research and work with a jeweler you can trust.

It takes three birthstones to celebrate the month of December. Tanzanite, Zircon and Turquoise, all different shades of a beautiful blue. While these gemstones look very similar in color, they couldn’t be more different. Let’s look at each stone and what makes them distinctively unique.
Tanzanite is a rare deep blue-purple gemstone. Found near the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Recently discovered in the 1960s, Tanzanite grew popular quickly and treasured by many. There is a limited supply of Tanzanite making this beauty a rarity. Tanzanite is sometimes mistaken for Sapphire, but its distinct purplish-blue color will distinguish the difference. Buy Tanzanite to celebrate a December birthday or a 24th wedding anniversary or because you love the vibrant blue.
Zircon is the oldest mineral on earth. Its first discover dates back approximately 4.4 billion years ago, Zircon first found in the Earth’s crust. Because this mineral contains uranium, its structure and color have evolved over time. Giving us clues about our own Mother Nature. Zircon achieves different colors through different heating processes which is how the Blue Zircon is made. We can find this beautiful gem all over the world but Australia leads everyone in mining for Zircon.
Last but not least is Turquoise. Its name says everything about its color. This gemstone dates back to the 13 century and known for its common usage in the Native American jewelry. Turquoise is the primary birthstone of December. It also serves to represent an eleventh wedding anniversary. The gem is a light blue mixed with green tones and hues. Turquoise symbolizes protection, happiness, and friendship. Buying turquoise differs from a lot of other gemstones as they do not grade it on the 4C’s criteria. (Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat size) Turquoise is valued by its color, size, hardness, and matrix.
