Stephanie Satow was born to design jewelry. When she was young, her jeweler father taught her how to cut the heads out of pennies with a jeweler's saw. That attention to detail informs her design to this day. After completing her training in jewelry design and fabrication by the age of 18, Stephanie knew she had found her calling. Stephanie's designs are classically tailored but with a feminine touch. A strong but elegant curve often breaks the plane of her design, rounding edges. She has an instinctive feel for what will make luxurious jewelry that will work every day, with everything you wear.
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.
