Pearl – June’s Birthstone

For all those born in the month of June, your birthstone is the illustrious pearl. Seen as symbol of modesty, chastity and purity, the pearl is recognised as one of the oldest known gemstones.




Pearl Junes BirthstoneEach pearl is a true piece of art, formed entirely in nature. Born within molluscs such as oysters and mussels and used as a natural defence against irritants, the pearl is made up of layers of calcium carbonate with an incomparable shimmer.

Pearls can vary in colour from white to pinks, browns and blacks all depending on their place of birth and the levels of salt in the water. As the only gemstone derived from a living organism in the sea, the pearl requires no polishing to reveal its intrinsic beauty.

Pearl Jewellery at Fraser Hart

Pearls have been revered for their beauty for more than 4,000 years. Ancient Egyptians were so enamoured by this beautiful gem, they were often buried alongside them. Pharaoh Cleopatra was said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine in a bet, claiming she could consume the wealth of an entire nation in just one meal.

During the Dark Ages, knights wore pearls into battle to protect them from harm while fair noble ladies cherished gifts of pearl necklaces. Because of their high regard, a number of countries passed laws forbidding anyone other than nobility to wear them.

Today, the pearl is widely revered in the jewellery industry with its incomparable sheen and shimmer. Pairing perfectly with both yellow and white gold in a variety of styles, the humble pearls is beloved by all and a key staple in the traditional bridal outfit.

Emerald – May’s Birthstone

Named after the Greek word ‘smaragdos’ which translates into ‘green stone’, the Emerald has a long and rich history. At the earliest known gem market in Babylon in around 4,000 BC, an Emerald was dedicated by the Ancients to Venus, the Goddess of Love.




Cleopatra was also believed to have been extremely fond of the stone and claimed all the Egyptian Emerald mines for herself during her reign.

Emerald May Birthstone

Believed to be the month of rebirth, the Emerald has become widely recognised as the birthstone for May and is said to grant the wearer with good fortune, youth and foresight. The gemstone has a long standing relationship with the jewellery industry, having been mounted into a magnificent necklace set for the Russian jewellers of the 18th century and eventually inspiring the ‘Emerald Cut’ which is now used to cut diamonds. Nowadays, Emerald are the perfect gemstone for everything from a special pendant and earring set to your beloved and cherished engagement ring.

A symbol of loyalty, friendship and success this exquisite gemstone has become one of our most beloved and cherished precious stones and is the perfect gift for the May birthday in your life.

Interview with Connor Caffrey, Jewellers Apprentice at Fraser Hart

Within Fraser Hart, we have many different roles from our in-store Sales Consultants to our highly skilled watch and jewellery repairs team. From entering the world of Fraser Hart, the opportunity to grow and develop is encouraged daily and many of our Managers began their careers with us at entry level roles. Connor Caffrey is one such example. As the latest Jeweller Apprentice in our Glasgow workshop, he learns while he works – building his skills to one day become a fully qualified Jeweller. We sat down with Connor to discover what it is about the workshop that makes him tick. 




I started working at Fraser Hart nearly 4 years ago in the Watch Department of our Warehouse. I’ve always been curious about the repairs and workshop element of a jewellers so I decided to speak to the team about the possibility joining them.

Glasgow Workshop Team

It took about a year for everything to get organised but eventually I moved into the workshop and started my apprenticeship at the polishing wheel. With blocks of stainless steel, I practiced over and over again until my work was to the same high standard and finish as the rest of my team.

Polishing Wheel

Only then was I allowed to move onto the many jobs we have coming in every day from our stores and began to learn other skills such as ring re-sizing and soldering.

Resizing

Every day is so different in the workshop – some days I’m restoring someone’s wedding ring to its former shine, the next I’m extending a grandmothers chain so her great granddaughter can wear as an heirloom.

Connor Caffrey Goldsmiths Interview

A goldsmith’s apprenticeship lasts for 7 years so I’ve still got a lot to learn but I love the challenges I get every day and cannot wait to develop my skills further as the years go by.

If you’ve always wondered what it would be like to work in the luxury jewellery and watch industry, keep an eye out on our Linkedin and Careers pages for all our latest vacancies.

All I Want For Christmas

The bells are ringing in the distance, the wrapping paper has descended on the high street and people are dusting off last year’s Christmas hats. It may only be the beginning of November but here at Fraser Hart we are well and truly in the festive spirit. Our stores have dug out their Christmas trees, brushed up on those essential gift wrapping skills and started their letters to Santa and we’re encouraging everyone to get involved.

Here at Fraser Hart, we’re all about the traditional Christmas. Picture logs under the fire, stockings hung from the chimney (with care) and mince pies left on the table for Santa to munch during his visit. This year, we’ve brought a traditional, homely Christmas to our stores and wrapped up everything you need to make your Christmas extra special.

Apassionata SS15 Collection

Soon our days will be filled with golden brown tans, studded sandals and floral summer dresses (well a girl can dream, can’t she?) and summer will finally be back. Gone will be the days where scarves doubled as blankets and our hands clutched steaming cups of coffee just for sheer warmth. Instead of umm-ing and ahh-ing over which hat and glove set will keep us warm (and dry), we’ll be flicking through pastel blouses and colour matching our accessories to our favourite mini skirts.

Our buyers have been in the ‘Summer’ zone for months now researching emerging trends, looking at gaps in our current ranges and buying in some of the most beautiful lines they’ve seen to ensure that the Apassionata SS15 collection is the best we’ve ever had.
