Choosing the perfect gemstone

Precious and Semi-Precious gemstones have long been admired and worn for their unique and beautiful colours. There are a vast amount of different gemstones available on the market today and gemstones can be found in a huge spectrum of colours. When it comes to gemstones the Cut, Carat, Colour and Clarity are still important however additional points to consider are the Beauty, Rarity, Durability and Desirability of the gemstone.

Diamonds and gemstones such as Sapphire and Ruby are often the most popular choice for jewellery due to their hardness and durability. All gemstones vary in durability and some beautiful gemstones are not suitable for everyday jewellery such as engagement rings. 

The most popular gemstones are Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald, Aquamarine, Topaz, Amethyst, Opal, Pearl, Garnet, Citrine, Tanzanite and Tourmaline. Each gemstone is unique and some are prone inclusions such as Emeralds whilst others require lots of care and gentle wear such as opals and pearls. Some gemstones are treated to enhance colour or lessen the appearance of inclusions in the stone.
