What makes gemstones special?

26 Jul, 2022 | Gemstone | Gem Selection

Colored gemstones have been used in jewelry manufacturing by people from all walks of life for millennia. Aside from their beauty, gemstones are also recognized for their therapeutic abilities. There are a variety of factors that make a jewel distinctive. Besides the four C's of Diamonds, how can you assess the value of a precious or semi-precious gemstone?

What should you keep an eye out for when shopping for a diamond, ruby, or even tsavorite? We've made a thorough selection of precious stones to assist you in choosing the right one for your unique fine jewelry.

Colour and Tones:

Gemstones are valued based on their color and tone. Every gemstone has a distinct color that reflects, refracts, or disperses light. Tones, colors, and saturation define a gem's quality. Gemstones may be dark or bright. The stone's value increases with its uniformity. Dual-colored gemstones are of poorer grade. Saturation determines stone quality, and high-quality gemstones have intense color. Thus, imperfect stones are dirty or hazy. Rubies, amethysts, and sapphires are colorful, while diamonds are translucent.

Cut and Clarity:

Every gemstone is just a mineral crystal that was discovered in nature. Each of these gems has been shaped and polished to perfection. The cut of a diamond determines its price. Hence a diamond with a specific cut is more expensive than an uncut diamond. It's all about symmetry and clarity regarding the ideal cut. Every skilled cutter considers the stone's cartage weight and the number of scratches on the surface to maximize the stone's value.

Possibilities for Healing:

Healing powers may be found in most gemstones that are found in nature. People are recommended to choose it to depend on their zodiac sign to get the most out of their gemstone. Ruby's brilliant red color and red cosmic rays have made it a popular gemstone. Digestive and bone-related ailments are said to be alleviated by it. On the other hand, Emerald is well-known for its ability to treat IQ issues.

Dimensions and Shapes:

Colored stones in jewelry have become more prevalent in recent years. Gemstones may be found in a wide range of jewelry, from simple daily pieces to elaborate wedding heirlooms. Gemstones come in various sizes and shapes, depending on the kind of jewelry.

A mixture of natural and artificial:

Gemstones may be biological or mineral-based in their natural state. Their distinctive chemical structure and eye-catching color are found in abundance in nature. The earliest gemstone discovered in Russia was the Alexandrite. Due to its rarity and high cost, it is a natural product. On the other hand, synthetic stones may be created in a lab, making them more common than real stones. Because of their availability and provenance, these gemstones are classified as semi-precious or non-precious.
