Jewelers describe the color of a gemstone in terms of three characteristics: hue, saturation, and tone. A gemstone's basic color is its hue, and those with purer hues (for emeralds, green; for sapphires, blue; and for rubies, red) are generally considered more valuable. Often, however, a hint of another color can be detected. Saturation is a measure of the intensity or purity of a gem's hue and is determined by the degree to which gray or brown hues mute its defining color. Value tends to increase with saturation, so a fully saturated purplish blue sapphire may well be more expensive than a muted pure blue one. The tone of a gemstone, a measurement of its lightness or darkness, is usually given as light, medium-light, medium, medium-dark, or dark.
A flawless gemstone is rare and expensive. As with diamonds, most gemstones have inclusions, or tiny mineral flaws, that can be seen under magnification or by the careful eye. Make sure that any inclusions in the stone do not penetrate deeply into the gem, as this may cause it to break or crack. Clarity grades range from VVS (very, very slightly included) to I3, in which inclusions are prominent and severely affect the gemstone's beauty.
A gemstone's cut refers to its proportions and symmetry. In making a gemstone look appealing--the stone should be symmetrical in all dimensions so that it will appear balanced, and that its facets will reflect light evenly. Color should also be taken into account when cutting for optical efficiency. If a stone's color is highly saturated, a shallow cut will allow it to pass more light, while a deeper cut may increase the vividness of a less saturated gem. There is no generally accepted grading system for gemstone cut.
Though a gemstone's weight is usually given in carats, this may not give an accurate idea of its size, because different types of stone have different densities. Therefore, a one-carat sapphire or ruby will be smaller than a one-carat emerald, though they have the same weight, because sapphires and rubies (both a form of the mineral corundum) are more dense than emeralds.
Gemstones can also be measured in dimensions (diameter, length, and width). It is important to know the dimensions to ensure that the gemstone weight will be visible and well-proportioned in the setting.
Gemstones are often treated to enhance color and fill cracks. Please note: if a gemstone has been treated, this information will be provided in the specifications on the stone's product detail page.
There are various accepted techniques, depending on the type of stone:
Oils and resins are frequently used to fill surface-reaching fissures in emeralds and rubies. This process is not permanent; however, if a treated ruby or emerald is subjected to high heat, the filler may leak out of the stone.
Sapphires and rubies are often heated in a kiln or furnace to enhance their color. Such heat treatment, which is considered permanent, has been used for centuries.
Lightly colored sapphires may also undergo diffusion treatment. This is done by heating a stone in the presence of coloring elements such as titanium or iron, which causes a thin layer of color to be diffused into the stone's surface. Because this color layer is so thin, a diffusion-treated sapphire should not be re-polished.
To clean gemstone jewelry, first wipe it with a soft cloth to remove any dirt. Emeralds require only the use of a soft cloth, as cleaners may damage these soft gems. Sapphires and rubies can be cleaned with either an ultrasonic cleaner or a solution of one part ammonia to six parts water, with a soft brush. Store your gemstone jewelry in a soft cloth pouch or jewelry case so it does not touch other pieces in your collection. As with all jewelry, normal wear and tear can loosen prongs and settings, so it is a good idea to have it checked by a professional jeweler who can make repairs as needed.

Top Customer Reviews
My only complaint is that the chain is very slight and arrived very tangled; many people would not be patient enough to untangle the chain without breaking it.
Over all, this is a lovely sapphire pendant. I am glad I found it for my wife. It goes great with her pink sapphire ring.
The main pendant is about the size of a dime, and the pink stone is very bright, as are the surrounding white sapphires.
Because of the way that the chain goes through the two top sides of the setting, it also lies flat, and doesn't turn around the way that pendants often can.
It comes boxed and inside a tiny little pouch, which is perfect for storing it in. The presentation of this is very nice, and it would make a perfect gift.
My only concern is that the chain on this is very thin and delicate; for this price, I would have been surprised if the chain had been thicker, but it's so delicate that I could see it breaking easily with one accidental tug on it.
Unlike other reviewers, I've had no problems with the clasp; it's not overly small, and the spring hinge opens and closes easily.
It's a lovely piece that is perfect for gift-giving -- or for keeping yourself!
The stone looks nice enough, but together with the chain? It looks like something a child would wear.
Now, as stated in other reviews, the chain is so fine as to seemingly be impossible. I cannot imagine it sustaining a single accidental tug (like could happen when one is brushing one's hair or adjusting one's collar). I do not anticipate that it will last very long. However, it is worth noting that this very fine chain highlights the delicate nature of the diminutive pendant. So, in that aspect, it works. Nonetheless, it also needs to be noted that this chain has a simple spring-ring closure ... a lobster claw closure would be much easier for the owner to maneuver (and it would lend the product a slightly more luxe quality).
I think this would be the perfect gift for a "tween" or a teen. Very pretty, but very very delicate.
The necklace is a good length and hangs just right--not too low or high, just below the collarbone--and the synthetic, pink sapphire has sparkly facets that catch the light well. It is a subtle and delicate piece of jewelry.
It is also only $50, so this would be a great gift to buy if you are on a budget. However, I would suggest looking into buying Swarovski jewelry if you are on a budget, too. Some of it can be pricey, but you can find pretty pieces for around $50, and I LOVE how their crystals sparkle. They're gorgeous!
Anyway, the only negative thing I can say about this necklace is that the chain is VERY thin and weak. You have to handle it with extra care, and while wearing it, make sure you do not accidentally rip it. The chain can be easily replaced, if needed.
I give it five stars despite the one flaw.
