Precious Colored Gemstone Jewelry

By Ruth Bishop Subscribe to RSS | December 23rd 2011 | Views:

The usual girl may consider diamonds to be her best friend, but some girls prefer the company of gemstones. There's just something about those brilliant colors that grab the eye and bring a happiness that diamonds don't always deliver. What is it about gemstones jewelry that makes it so appealing, so inviting? Is it simply the variety of colors? Who knows? Either way, gemstones can take your jewelry collection to the next level, adding variety and excitement in ways that traditional diamonds just can't.

Emerald, amethyst, aquamarine, garnet, blue and green topaz, citrine, opal, onyx, peridot, pearl, ruby, sapphire, ruby, lemon quartz, and tanzanite – we have various choices to choose from. However, there is a lot more to jewelry than its eye appeal. Jewelry is actually a mix of various attributes that give it its overall value and acceptance. A beautiful piece of green gem may be given different names and may have different price because there is something beyond its color and glitter that assorts it into gems of different value and price. For instance at first look zircon looks almost similar to diamond in terms of eye appeal and refractive index but diamond is more precious due to its durability and hardness.

While investing your time, money and sentiments in a piece of jewelry, the thing you need to check is any defect or loose fitting. How disappointing it would be if ring’s gem fell out within few days of purchase. To ensure that your jewelry lasts long you have to rule out this factor at the time of purchase itself. See if all the settings are at place or not. Check out for any loose prongs and faulty fittings. Also check if there are any sharp edges or uneven surfaces.

After scrutinizing the defects put your eyes on overall appeal of the jewelry. There is no point of a neck set studded with expensive gems if there is no color and design sense in it. Choosing right jewelry is somewhat similar to choosing cloths. If it doesn’t suit your eyes than it surely lacks something you are looking for.

Like diamonds, colored gemstones have their four Cs’ as well namely color, carat, clarity and cut. Color is the most prominent of all. No matter what stone you are choosing the best one’s are in vivid and intense primary hue apart from gems that are naturally pastel shaded like aquamarine. Ask your jeweler to show it to you under various lights to judge gem’s right color. While cut and carat merely depend upon the jewelry piece you are buying, clarity is something you have to ask your jeweler to help you with. One thing to keep in mind here is that not all the stone are crystal clean some naturally come included and are softer in nature so ask your jeweler to help you with it. The simplest thing to do would be asking for a certification to confirm the authenticity and grading of gem.
