If June were a color, it would be a shimmering, glimmering, nacreous white. June is a month full of sparkling sandy beaches, blushing brides and moonlit evenings, and those lucky enough to have a June birthday are bestowed with two of the loveliest birthstones: the lustrous pearl and the mesmerizing moonstone. These stunning gems also have a storied history around the necks, arms and ears of women saying “I do,” because their ethereal iridescence is the perfect complement to a flowing white gown. Speaking of “I do,” we at the store are thrilled and excited to celebrate the wedding of one of our own, Alexa, in less than a week. Congrats, Alexa and Russell! Come and check out our extensive collection of pearl and moonstone necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings, and find the perfect gift for a June baby or a bride-to-be.
Welcome to the merry month of May, everyone! In spite of the rainy day we’re having today, May’s arrival heralds the approach of glorious summer, and we’re all anticipating the long, warm days ahead. We know what you’re thinking. Isn’t there something else that happens in May, some holiday that inspires children everywhere to make elbow macaroni masterpieces and crayon-adorned coupon books?
That’s right, next Sunday is Mother’s Day. Why not pay us a visit beforehand to get Mom a little something special?
Did you know that May is also National Bicycle Month?
In celebration of all that May has to offer, why not plan a scenic family bike ride and picnic for next Sunday? Don’t forget to pack Mom’s favorite treats. Here’s to a sunnier weekend ahead, fit for such lovely adventures.
Hello, dear customers, and Happy April! For those of you who are subscribed to our email list, we’re trying something different this month. While WordPress is a lovely blogging platform, its email subscription service is a little clumsy for our taste. We have a feeling that many of you miss our email updates because they are sent from “WordPress” instead of “New Stone Age,” so starting today we are using Mail Chimp to manage email subscriptions. Hopefully, that will mean that you can find our content more easily. Let us know how you like it.
Now that we’ve got that boring update out of the way, how about that flashy blog headline? It’s true, folks: April is the best month in which to be born, because these spring babies can claim the fabulous, lustrous diamond as their birthstone. Perhaps you have a special April-born someone in your life, or perhaps you are that special someone. Perhaps you just love diamonds as much as we do. If you said yes to any of the above (and really, who doesn’t like diamonds?), take a look at the abundance of beautiful specimens we have in the store.
Since wedding season is fast approaching, we figured this month would also be the perfect time to showcase some of our marriage-worthy rings. Take note, proposal planners: if you’re going to put a ring on it, choose one of these stunners!
Come to New Stone Age for the stone of all stones, the dazzling diamond!
Greetings, customers! Hands up, those of you who are excited about the arrival of spring! The Vernal Equinox, which heralds the first day of the season, is only two days away.

Welcome spring through your own door with some colorful nods to this season of blossoms and growth.
Now that we’ve helped you bring the spirit of spring into your home, why not put some spring into your own step with some bright-hued jewelry?

Hello, friends. Summer, the season that our fair city does best, is officially here. We welcome the days that lend themselves to daydreaming – basking in the warm sunshine under canopies of fuchsia bougainvillea and violet jacaranda blossoms, discovering hidden coves along the Malibu coast, sipping cucumber cocktails on downtown rooftops in the late-evening light, stargazing bare-shouldered at the Griffith Observatory.
The bright summer sun that Los Angeles is famous for is a perfect foil for outrageous color. We’ve been busy filling the store with gorgeous hues from every inch of the color wheel. In fact, when photographing the store for the blog, we were inundated with so much brilliance that we were reminded of this:
This stunning image was taken in India during the Hindu festival of Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors. It celebrates, among other things, the end of winter and the return of brilliant color to the natural world. Revelers adorn themselves and each other with pigment in a dazzling array of hues.
We at New Stone Age find ourselves constantly inspired by anything that celebrates color, as one look in the shop will confirm, so when we found out about this marvelous festival, we had to share our excitement with you. Take a look at some of the beautiful hues in our store at the moment, and you’ll see that we are celebrating our very own festival of color. What better way to herald the coming of the summer solstice, of long days and warm nights, than to let the sunlight shine upon brilliant shades that reflect its true brilliance? This summer, let’s adorn Los Angeles like the jewel box it is.
New Stone Age wishes all of our readers a sunny, shimmery, saturated summer!
What’s that warm sensation blowing through the palm trees and kissing our shoulders? It may feel like the Santa Ana Winds have arrived out of season, but we know the real reason for this mid-winter summer: love is in the air! Los Angeles has so many lovebirds this year that it’s glowing. We’ve been caught up in the amorous fervor too, and our store window has become a wonderland of colorful hearts.
In the next few weeks, we’ll be stocking up on all the things a heart desires. Stop by to pick up the perfect valentine for your sweetheart, and stay tuned to our blog for more heartwarming hints.
(Oh, and psst, some of our sale jewelry has just been marked down from 30% off to 60% off! A deal like this happens once in a blue moon at New Stone Age, so hurry into the store while it lasts!)
