A gemstone will be as effective as much as the parameters it meets. To gain maximum benefit one should first understand how gemstones work and what determines their price, and then finally how to use it to gain maximum benefit.

Let’s look at some factors which decide the price of a gemstone:

  1. Rarity and Diversity- Rarity is directly proportional to Gemstone price

Rarer gems obviously command a higher price. For example Gems like Diamonds, Sapphires, and Rubies are more expensive than gems like Garnets, Amethysts or Peridots etc. Thus they demand a higher price per carat

Nature creates precious Gemstones over millions of years and nature’s capacity to replenish fine specimens is limited. And this makes rare gems costlier.

Ruby is surely more expensive than a Peridot, You also know Burma Ruby is more expensive than a Thai. So what is the complication?

 Color! A Imperial Pigeon Blood Burma Ruby would command a higher price than a pinkish red Burma Ruby and the story goes on.

  1. Gemstone Color: One of the Most Vital Factor in Gemstone Pricing.

Gemstone color is made up of Hue Tone and Saturation. Color is one of the most critical and important factors as far as gemstones are concerned. The more pure the color, the higher the price. Color, as used here means that minimal to no hues of other colors are present in it. It should have high levels of saturation and also have the finest tones.

  1. Clarity: How Clarity Affects Gem Pricing

The clearer a gem, the higher its price. The lesser the visible inclusions the higher the price per carat. But also fine inclusions are proof that the gem is natural and untreated

  1. Cut/Shape: Symmetry is Directly Proportional to Price

Whatever may be the cut, it has to be made sure that the maximum play and penetration of light takes place so as to bring out the brilliance and scintillation of the color of the gemstone.

The more masterfully crafted the gemstone the better the polish and blemish free surface the costlier the gemstone.

  1. Gem Weight and Size and its affect on Gemstone Pricing.

The more the weight of the gemstone, the more the price. The price of precious colored gemstone increase with geometrical progression.

These factors and many more are the parameters which decide the price and value of a gemstone. The greater the clarity and color, the more a gem is rare, the cut, design and weight all affect the price of the gemstone.
