Master craftsman and world traveler, Gary Stucchi designs unique pieces that you can treasure for a lifetime and share with future generations. The leading custom jeweler in Natick, Massachusetts, he has been designing and making jewelry since he was 10 years old: after making a pendant with his older brother, he knew he had found his calling. Recently he was commissioned by Wellesley College to create a custom pin for Madeleine Albright, noted jewelry collector. Gary designed an intricate, dimensional globe pin that represents the former Secretary of State's mastery of international diplomacy. Gary is also known for his popular "A Mother's Gift" collection of elegant stackable mother's rings. "It always seems that the simplest designs resonate with people," he says. "My inspiration is looking at what's not there: the blank canvas or the clear mind, where true creativity is born."
Exploration is the meaning attached to the iolite gemstone. This term comes from the tale of Leif Eriksson. When he and other legendary Viking explores ventured into the Atlantic searching for the new world, they used a naturally polarizing iolite lens to determine the exact position of the sun in order to navigate safely. This technique was made possible due to iolite's plechoism: its ability to display a different color for each different direction. It is violet blue from one angle, clear as water from another and a honey yellow from the top. This characteristic makes it difficult to cut an iolite because in the wrong shape, iolite's color will not be properly displayed. The color of an iolite is its most important value factor: the more pure and saturated the blue, the more valuable the iolite is. Historically called the "water sapphire," an iolite is a charming, blue gem with a steely hue that resembles the color of the ocean at dawn. Iolite is the gem of the 21st anniversary. All Gemvara jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a premium-quality iolite will be hand-selected to perfectly suit your design. Crafted in the United States, Gemvara's fine iolite jewelry is precious and personal, surely to be passed down for generations to come.
