Gem of the Hills community with you.  We opened The Village Goldsmith June 14, 1994 at 630 W. Hwy 50 in Clermont, and have
been in the same location, with the same phone number (352.394.4429), with the same owners, and the same dedication to
quality workmanship partnered with customer service.

While the consistency you have come to trust has been our watchword, we are looking
ahead to making small upgrades to keep pace with South Lake County’s ever changing population growth
and financial community; watch for them.  We have no interest or intention of becoming a box-store

This weeks Q & A:
  How often should I have my Jewelry inspected?

( See Internet Specials page for the answer )

Traditional Birthstones for December are the Turquoise, Blue Zircon & Deep Blue Tanzanite


The brilliant blue of Turquoise is in demand as an accessory for contemporary fashion and cultures around the globe revere the Turquoise
as a mystical and holy gemstone.  This gem is given to those born in December and to honor the 6th & 7th wedding anniversaries.
With Turquoise set in its familiar silver settings it is frequently being combined with yellow gold and other gems such as
Pearls, Carnelian, Coral & Moonstone.

Blue Zircon

A gem of great beauty and rarity can be mistaken for the far more expensive blue diamond.  The colors are long
favored by consumers because this breathtaking gem, with its superb brilliance and dispersion, looks more like a
diamond than any other stone.  The aqua-blue brightness of Zircon is tinged with shimmering teal and gives
energy & renewal to those who wear it.  This gem is frequently used to celebrate December birthdays
and 4th wedding anniversary.

Deep Blue Tanzanite

The deep vivid blue with a purplish tinge and dazzling intensity dances about the stone as it moves in the light.
This modern gemstone unknown until 1967 caused a world wide sensation and the one source for this gem
is the hills of northern Tanzania, near Mount Kilimanjaro.  The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA)
named Tanzanite as an alternative gem to celebrate December birthdays.

What ever the reason, the Blue Zircon, Turquoise & Deep Blue Tanzanite are always fabulous choices.
