The very concept of “Endless Summer” is one of abundance. It is a time to focus our energy on the good things in life and prolong them for as long as we possibly can. That, my dear friends, is why I am so excited to bring you today’s contributor. A long time favorite of ours, Friedasophie, is back to spread sunshine and keep the very idea of summer strong and warm in our lives.

Friedasophie is a San Francisco based designer, specializing in sustainable gems and stones. When combined with 14k gold filled metals, there is something so inherently luxurious and authentic about each piece that you feel like you are wearing your personality on your body. I have always been a huge fan of gem stones and find that wearing them as jewelry makes me feel more grounded, more stationed, more colorful. This Midnight Goldstone Star Necklace has been in the top five on my wishlist for longer than I care to admit. (Perhaps I should treat myself one these days!) And this Amethyst Stalactite Necklace? Sigh. It is far too gorgeous for my mere words. Friedasophie is a gem, to be sure.

Friedasophie is giving away one Green Garnet Nugget Necklace to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Thursday, September 19th.
Please visit Friedasophie and tell us: What is your favorite gemstone? Is it your birthstone? 
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, September 23rd, to see if you’ve won!

    My favorite gemstone is amethyst, not my birthstone which is peridot. I love it because when I was little purple was my favorite colour , shocking I know for a little girl, and favorite Great Uncle loved collecting and polishing gems. He introduced me to rock hunting and rock shows. He also made me a lovely amethyst bracelet that was lost over the years.

    My birth stone is the topaz, a beautiful stone. My favorite stone would be turquoise, because of its amazing colour. But the stone that holds the most magic for me is the sunstone. It was introduced to me by my very glamorous adventuring grandmother who would bring back strings of all sorts of stones from her adventures in India, Tibet and Nepal. She would explain what each one was. Sunstone always facinated me because it looks like it has glitter trapped inside. The childlike part of me still delights in all stones, but especially those with bright colours or sparkle!

    When I was little, my grandmother gave me a small necklace with a small ruby pendant. I’m not sure I would have loved rubies because they are my gemstone, but I certainly love them because I think of my grandmother and what seemed a necklace fit for royalty that I cherished as a child.

    Loving this necklace because it combines my birthstone “garnet” in a non-traditional color. My favorite gemstone are emeralds simply because they are my favorite color.

    The ruby! It is my birthstone, but the color red always gives me such happy feelings. My grandmother LOVED the color red. She had a red car, wore red clothes (She had red pants on before they were ever in style!) dyed her hair red and when she had to choose something she always went for the red one. The color red to me makes me think of her love, her excitement and the joy she had for the smallest things. The ruby reminds me of the little twinkle she had in her eye. I just adore it.

    Honestly – I love so many gemstones – it’s so difficult to choose. However, visiting your Etsy shop made it much easier:

    the edge has to go to my beloved birthstone: the awesome AQUAMARINE!

    And I must say you have so many breath-taking creations featuring the Aquamarine – you literally have my head spinning!

    Other top contenders are the Amethyst (my Honey/Hubby’s birthstone.) Also colorwise – I have a stong affinity for Carnelian. And while I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen or heard of it before,  your Peach Aragonite Gold Necklace truly took my breath away – and stole my heart, too!

    Thanks – LOVE your designs/creations!
