Although Damon Washington majored in art, it was football that first put him in the spotlight. He excelled as a running back, first for Colorado State and later for the New York Giants. As a player, he began to collect jewelry, marveling at the detail and craftsmanship concentrated in something so small. After he left the NFL, he decided to turn his interest in jewelry into a career, studying jewelry design at the Gemological Institute of America. Today this renaissance man has his own jewelry design company, called Damon 2029, after the numbers he wore on the field. He is often inspired by artwork, his own or the work of masters, and colors and emotion help drive his design process. His jewelry has a bold flair worthy of his warrior spirit. As you might expect, Damon has designed jewelry for many NFL players, including Ron Dayne, Clark Haggans, Travis Laboy, James Farrior, Ron Dixon, and Thabiti Davis.
Fire Opal Quality
The fire opal is all about unity; in fact it symbolizes the unity of two polar opposites: fire and water. Fire opal forms when water seeps into silica-rich red, hot lava, filling all its crevices. Then the silica forms a solid gel, trapping the remaining water within its structure. This vivid gem's beauty also will remind you of flames. Color is the most important factor to consider in picking the perfect fire opal and a vivid orange hue means it is of fine quality. Unlike most opal, fire opal is faceted and has brilliance, as well as a bright, day-glow, orange color. Born in the fire of Mexico's volcanoes, fire opal's natural, bright orange color is unmatched in the gem kingdom. Cut is more important than clarity when choosing your fire opal because fire opal often has a welcome haziness that actually increases the vibrancy of its color. Opal is the October birthstone and the 14th anniversary gem. All Gemvara jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a premium-quality fire opal will be hand-selected to perfectly suit your design. Crafted in the United States, Gemvara's fine fire opal jewelry is precious and personal, surely to be passed down for generations to come.
