Diamonds and Gold in Quarantine
Posted on April 22 2020
Happy belated birthday April babies! Like your birthstone, the diamond, you are precious but strong. Times are tough but you are tougher! Even though the celebration circumstances might not be ideal, the team at Skaska wants you to know that it’s ok to treat yourself to a little something (or somethings) that make you smile. All precious stones are beautiful and unique in their own way, but there’s just something special about diamonds. People tend to feel a little more confident, a little more powerful, when donning a diamond or hundred. After all, the word diamond comes from the Greek word meaning unbreakable.
We could all use a little of that sparkle right now; a little more confidence in our unbreakableness. But alas, we must be smart and careful with our purchases. Luckily, gold is one of the most valuable and dependable investments around. Think of yourself like an investor and, while some investors might prefer buying paper gold, you’d rather hold onto your precious metal first-hand. Skaska jewelry is solid gold paired with conflict free diamonds, so it’s nice to have one more piece of fine jewelry and one less concern about its quality or where it came from. Diamonds too retain value after years of being worn and enjoyed
Nowhere to go in your new baubles these days? No matter! While there are many options now to stay comfy without sacrificing style (we’re looking at you instagram ad loungewear) you don't have to let our accessory game slide either. Add Double-sided Diamond Hex Necklace to a v-neck t-shirt or button down for your afternoon Zoom meetings. The gold peak necklace and 5 Peak Banner Necklace are delicate with a little dazzle if you’d rather walk on the lighter side.
Your just-rolled-out-of-bed, messy topknot is no match for a pair of our Pear Shape Drop or 6 Peak hoop earrings. Elevate your waist-up look from quarantine couch potato to effortless influencer. If you don’t love a hoop or any dangle on your ear, then studs are an easy way to add some low-maintenance glitz all day and night; literally, from jeans to jammies! Rock a Floating Honeycomb as you settle into the couch for your third viewing of Tiger King or mix, match, and stack with an Itty Bitty Diamond and Diamond Circle stud while you sweat it out on your Peloton. All of these solid gold designs are durable, dainty and minimal.
Protip: If you tend to be a little rough on your jewelry, we recommend you opt for 14K, since it’s stronger and more durable than 18K. 14K gold contains 58.3% pure gold and 18K gold contains 75% gold. The more of the precious metal, the more delicate. A diamond, on the other hand, is the hardest substance known to man, making it strong as hell. When cared for properly, Skaska jewelry can be worn every day and maybe even passed on as an heirloom to the next generation.
Stay golden, all you cool cats and kittens.
