Gemstones

Rubies, emeralds, and sapphires - even fancy colored diamonds! The options for colored stones in fine jewelry are endless; earrings, pendants, rings . . the list goes on. Precious and semi-precious gemstones feature in birthstone jewelry, anniversary jewelry, engagement rings, and all those pieces which exist just for fun.

Gemstones are valued slightly differently from diamonds. Natural stones come in a variety of colors, sizes, and clarity, all of which impact the value of the stone. A sapphire can be a deep velvety blue, or a bright sparkling pink. A ruby can range from an opaque pinkish-red to a deep transparent blood-red. The best gemstones exhibit intense color, firey brilliance, and sparkling transparency.
