When you think of DirectBuy, most people think of home improvement projects and big-time savings for members by enabling them to buy directly from manufacturers and their authorized suppliers. What’s not as well known is the variety of items members can buy from more than 700 (500 for Canada) top brands. That long list includes gemstones and jewelry, an item of interest for many consumers around Valentine’s Day, anniversaries and birthdays.
“The beauty of gemstones is not just in how nice they look, but what the stones symbolize. For example, garnet is the birthstone for January and for second anniversaries and represents strength and vitality. So, even if you don’t know much about jewelry, you can select a gemstone as a gift based on its meaning and the recipient will be touched by both how it looks and the thought behind it,” said Sara Shragal, of DirectBuy.
Some of the more popular gemstones, and their corresponding meanings, include:
Emerald – green, birthstone of May and the 20th anniversary gem; represents serenity.
Diamond, colorless or pale, the birthstone of April; represents courage and true love.
Sapphire, available in any color (red with deep blue is most popular), the birthstone of September; represents peace and happiness.
Ruby, red, the birthstone of July; represents love and wisdom.
Pearl, white with iridescent pink, but available in a variety of colors; birthstone of June and the 12th and 30th anniversary gem, represents modesty.
Aquamarine, medium blue with a touch of green, the birthstone of March; represents trust, harmony and friendship.
In addition to gemstones, DirectBuy also carries a variety of jewelry, ranging from high-end and everyday watches to engagement rings, lockets to bracelets.
“We’ve earned our reputation for helping people build the homes of their dreams at low, insider prices. With our selection of gemstones, we can make birthdays, anniversaries and, yes, Valentine’s Day a special memory with our gemstone and jewelry selections,” adds Shragal.
