We've cranked up the heat again with Scarlet Red Helenite. This is the very same volcanic wonder-gem that exploded onto the jewelry scene not too long ago. But today, we're offering it with a bold new look. This is everything you've ever wanted out of a red stone: the color, the cut, the fire... it's got fire to spare! And right now you can own this incredible creation at a price that's just as hot.
The beauty in the beast. On May 18th, 1980, one cataclysmic moment shook the world. Mount St. Helens awoke from its hundred-year slumber and erupted, sending a column of ash and smoke 80,000 feet into the atmosphere. Once the chaos cleared, something beautiful was discovered. An amazing creation was produced from the heated volcanic rock dust that had been left behind. Named "Helenite" after the mountain from which it was born, its striking appearance and amazing story captured the world's attention.
Burning desire. From passionate Southern Belles who need to be kissed, to lusty Hawthorne novels and swashbuckling heroes, the color scarlet has played a pivotal role in romances throughout history. So when we saw the smoldering, deep red color of this helenite, we knew there was only one name that would do it justice. And to make the necklace as impressive as possible, we put the fiery stone front and center. Dramatically prong-set in gold-layered .925 sterling silver, and surrounded by the white flash of lab-created DiamondAura® rounds, the ½-carat, pear-cut helenite is absolutely ablaze with light.
Magma-nificent. Mount St. Helens erupted only once, but the spectacular Scarlet Helenite Collection is just warming up. Complete your set with the matching pendant and earrings and we promise that you'll "fall in lava" all over again.
