About the gemstone

The jewel beetle, or Sternocera aequisignata, is a species of beetle belonging to the Buprestidae family. Historically, these vibrant wings were sewn into Victorian-era gowns, like sequins. They were farmed in Thailand- the shells collected after they died of natural causes. HBJ loves jewel beetle wings for their iridescence and vibrancy. 
Origins: Farmed in Thailand
Care: Jewel beetle wings are very delicate. Jewel beetle wing jewelry is typically backed with epoxy to help stabilize it, but they need to be handled with great care: no abrasive surfaces, knocking about, etc. It is an organic material, so avoid chemicals at all costs.

Diamonds are renowned for their clarity and classic cuts, but Hannah Blount Jewelry loves more unusual diamonds that come in a variety of colors and qualities. Diamonds that hold striking and organic inclusions tell the most interesting stories and offer even more beauty and wonder within their singular structures.
MOHs Hardness: 10
Origins: Sourced from around the world, any diamond that enters the United States must go through the Kimberley Process. While this is not a perfect program, it helps to eliminate conflict diamonds in today’s market.
Care: While diamonds are the earth’s hardest gemstone, they can still break. Avoid dropping diamonds onto hard surfaces. To clean your diamond piece, soak in warm, soapy water and remove any dirt with a toothbrush or the like. It is safe to clean with an ultrasonic and steam cleaner.
Healing Properties: Diamonds are believed to promote radiance, self-sovereignty, and fearlessness.
Birthstone: April
Anniversary: 60th and 75th

The Story of Vanity

Celebrating the often discouraged act of adorning oneself, the Vanity collection combines glamour with grit, and naturalistic curiosities with industrial elements. Growing up in a world that said a desire to be beautiful was vain, Hannah learned through time and her artwork that connecting to beauty is an ultimate form of empowerment. The one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces of the Vanity collection incorporate Hannah’s love of atypical gemstones and prong settings. The gemstones found in Vanity are hand-selected for their obvious beauty, but more often for what makes them more obscure: vibrancy in unexpected hues, garish silhouettes, and striking inclusions that deem them traditionally flawed. But it is through their perfect imperfections that Hannah is given a canvas to celebrate her love of making, design, beauty, and unbridled creativity. Contrasting delicacy with severity and subtlety with singularity, the Vanity collection is a love story to femininity and ardent self-love. Shop the full Vanity Collection
