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.
A peridot symbolizes grace under pressure. It is thought to bring its wearer good luck and success, while calming nerves and dispelling negative emotions. The most important aspect to consider when buying a period is its color. Gemvara's peridot is a bright spring-green without the olive tones that can dampen this gem's sweet color. The brighter the color, the more valuable the peridot is. Cut is important as well, even more than clarity, since a well-cut peridot will shines in the light of the sun. Peridot is among the "greenest" of gems in another way too, since most peridot is mined, often by hand, by Native Americans on the San Carlos Reservation in Arizona. Peridot is the August birthstone, the zodiac stone for Leo, and the 16th anniversary gem. All Gemvara jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a premium-quality peridot will be hand-selected to perfectly suit your design. Crafted in the United States, Gemvara's fine peridot jewelry is precious and personal, surely to be passed down for generations to come.
