Weddings by Werkheiser

Here at Werkheiser Jewelers, we know weddings… wedding jewelry that is!

We love to create those special pieces of jewelry that will last for a lifetime! Recently, we had a newly married couple send us some pictures from their gorgeous wedding abroad. We custom designed the bride’s engagement ring and also helped the couple with the creation of matching wedding bands.

Here are the pictures sent to us by  Sara & Andrej. Congratulations!

Birthstone of the Month: Ruby

Ruby has accumulated a host of legends over the centuries. People in India believed that rubies enabled their owners to live in peace with their enemies. In Burma (a ruby source since at least 600 AD—now called Myanmar), warriors possessed rubies to make them invincible in battle. However, it wasn’t enough to just wear the rubies. They had to insert them into their flesh and make them part of their bodies.

The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means “red.” The glowing red of ruby suggested an inextinguishable flame burning in the stone, even shining through clothing and able to boil water.
