Recycling Gold

A few images of the process of recycling gold.
Old gold Jewellery is put in a crucible, after removing the gemstones.

Heat is applied with a torch until the gold melts

The liquid gold is poured in a small mould and becomes an ingot, ready to make new recycled gold jewellery.

Precious gemstones of May

Who first beholds the light of day
In spring's sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.

May birthstones are emerald, agate and chrysoprase.
Sapphire and Emerald ring

Emerald is known as the “stone of successful love”. It brings loyalty and brings domestic bliss. It enhances unconditional love, unity and promotes friendship. Keeps partnerships in balance and can signal unfaithfulness if it changes colour. Emerald stimulates the heart chakra, having a healing effect on the emotions as well as the physical heart. It ensures physical, emotional and mental equilibrium, bringing harmony to all areas of ones life. Focusing intention and raising consciousness, it brings in positive actions, eliminating negativity and enhancing the ability to enjoy life to the fullest.

Emerald enhances psychic abilities, opens clairvoyance, and stimulates the use of greater mental capacity. It helps bring awareness of the unknown to conscious recognition, imparting reason and wisdom. Emerald assists in inciting activity and focus in ones actions. It strengthens memory and imparts clarity of thought. It inspires a deep inner knowing, promoting truth and discernment.

Le muguet porte bonheur - Lily of the valley for Luck


Bouquet de MuguetChers amis, Dear friends,
On 1st May 1561,  King Charles IX  decided to offer every Lady in the Cour a Lily of the Valley flower, as a lucky charm. It was the day before his coronnation. This tradition is still valid 452 years later in France, as we still offer each one another Lily of the Valley for good luck.
Voilà 452 ans, aujourd'hui, que perdure, en France, la coutume d'offrande du muguet. C'est, en effet, le 1er mai 1561 que le roi Charles IX, à la veille de son couronnement, décida d'offrir à toutes les dames de la Cour un brin de muguet, en guise de porte-bonheur.

Happy "fête du muguet".
