Gemstones

Color

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.

Clarity

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.

Cut

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.

Size

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.

Gemstone Treatment

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.

Gemstone Care

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.

    Gift for mother-in-law and she loved them.
    Momma Roberts 2010
    I assumed they would be much smaller in real life compared to the picture; but they aren't, they are larger than I expected!
    Angela S. Moore
    Over all the stones are not as dark emerald and they're poorly set.

    Primary Stone Gem Type: emerald Verified Purchase
    These looked alright when they arrived, though they do look a bit cheap in real life and the stones are less brilliant when not under studio lighting. The bigger issue is that these earrings quickly rusted, which was not expected. My wife was initially happy with these and is now very disappointed in how cheap they turned-out.

    Overall, not worth the "sale" price (let alone the artificial list price).

    Primary Stone Gem Type: blue-sapphire Verified Purchase
    I chose this rating because I was expecting the earrings to be larger. When they arrived I had to get the magnifing glass out to see the sapphires. They are certainly not a large as they look in the illustration and therefore I was very dissapointed in them as I was expecting them to look like the picture!

    Primary Stone Gem Type: blue-sapphire Verified Purchase
    We just received these earrings, and the first thing that my wife and I said was that Amazon's magnified view of theses earrings is somewhat misleading making you believe that the stones are much larger than they actually are. My wife is very petite and she really likes the size of the hoops, and the overall quality seems good. Despite the disappointing stone size, my wife says that she would buy them again.

    Primary Stone Gem Type: blue-sapphire Verified Purchase
    Very disappointed! I bought the earrings and matching bracelet and planned to give them as an anniversary gift because I thought they would match the wedding and engagement rings, but the stones are black not blue. And the packaging has a motor oil smell! Add that to the fact that the earrings were scattered in the box rather than making a nice presentation. All-in-all, not what I expected and will be returning them.

    Primary Stone Gem Type: emerald Verified Purchase
    I over set my expectations with this item. If you rate this picture as a 10 than I got a 3 in the mail. Over all the stones are not as dark emerald and they're poorly set. I got this item as a anniversary gift to show effection toward my other half... Hope its not my last because truth be told it looks like I this item from a 75¢ machine minus the imprint of 14k. Lesson learned buy jewlery from the store not the internet.

    The earrings were a bit smaller than I expected but still very nice. They were a gift and she was very pleased with them. I likes the touch of gold on the silver to add to their versatility.

    Primary Stone Gem Type: emerald Verified Purchase
    I purchased these earrings as one of my gifts to my wife for Valentine's Day, from Amazon.com LLC. I thought the price was good if the earrings looked as good as advertised. I must say when I received them, they were a little disappointing! The picture of the product on the ad has the emeralds a deep and shiny emerald green color. When I looked at the earrings, the emeralds had a much lighter color than the ad, and were not as brilliant! In other words, the emeralds were not as prominent as they were depicted in the advertisement. Needless to say, I was a little disapointed, and there was not enough time left before Valentine's Day to make a change!
