About Black Onyx Cross Jewelry

Buying Guide

When you are shopping for black onyx jewelry, the most important value factor to consider is the craftsmanship of the gem and the jewelry piece. Common black onyx is cut in cabochons or flat slabs. Although all black onyx is opaque, premium black onyx is faceted just like a transparent gem so it can catch the light on its surface.

Gemvara's black onyx is faceted and polished for a surface that resembles more expensive gems like black diamond and black spinel. Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality faceted black onyx to perfectly suit your design.

What is the meaning of black onyx jewelry in the language of gems? Black onyx is said to have the power to reflect back negative energy and increase your determination to accomplish your goals. Black onyx shows you are the master of your own fate.

Black onyx is the 7th anniversary gem and a zodiac gem for the sign of Leo.

This basic black gem first became popular in Victorian times, when demand for mourning jewelry led jewelry designers to look for all-black gemstones. Black onyx is often seen in jewels of the Art Deco period, the perfect foil for diamond in black and white geometric designs.

All black onyx has its inky color enhanced to provide a dark even tone.

Because its color is such a nice contrast to white metal, black onyx jewelry is most often crafted in sterling silver or white gold.

Black onyx is a very durable gem perfect for everyday wear. Clean black onyx jewelry with mild dish soap: use a soft brush where dust collects.

Gemvara's fine quality black onyx jewelry is designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Jewelry Care

With a little care, your fine jewelry will keep its good looks forever. The best way to clean your jewelry is by soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ordinary dish detergent. If needed, use a soft brush where dust and soap can collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.

You won't have to clean your jewelry as often if you put it on after applying hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics. Be sure to remove your jewelry before strenuous activities like sports. Keep jewelry away from chlorine and other household chemicals. Always make sure it is dry and clean by wiping with a cloth before putting it away.

To protect the beauty of your jewelry, don't keep it in a tangle in a jewelry box. Remember, gems can scratch metal or each other. When you travel, make sure your jewelry pieces don't rub against each other in your bag. Store each piece separately or wrap each one in tissue paper or a soft cloth.
