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.

    Primary Stone Gem Type: blue-sapphire Verified Purchase
    I bought these 14k Yellow Gold Sapphire and Diamond J-Hoop Earrings as a birthday gift for a family member.

    She adores the creative earring design - slightly offset J-shaped curves of eight dark blue sapphires and eleven bright round diamonds on each J-Hoop earring.

    The earrings are about 1/2" wide and 2/3" long.

    Although small enough for everyday wear, these earrings are exquisitely made and won't go unnoticed. She's happy with all the attention that these sapphire and diamond earrings receive!

    SEE MY PHOTOS IN CUSTOMER IMAGES

    The diamonds in these earrings are clear and bright. According to the 'Jewelry Information' the color is IJ, clarity is 11-12. So, whatever imperfections that exist in these diamonds are not discernible without x10 magnification. I don't think that would ever be a problem! :))

    DIAMOND SPECS: Minimum total gem weight is 0.09 carats. The diamonds are cut to a 'Good' grade - a typical cut for tiny diamonds. Diamonds with a 'Good' cut grade reflect most of the light entering them. These diamonds are tiny but they sparkle well enough for the price.

    The sapphires are natural. They are very dark blue with a minimum total gem weight of 0.48 carats.

    Set in 14k yellow gold, these elegantly styled dark blue sapphire and diamond earrings are perfect for adding a touch of glitz and glam to your wardrobe - whether it's for work or a night on the town.

    The earrings are attractively packaged in a regal blue suede box ... so I didn't have to gift wrap! :))

    Hope this review was helpful ... Jeffrey A. (Jeff)

    The earings are beautiful, but very small. This would be a wonderful gift for a child or teen. If I had not received discounts bringing the price under $90 I would have sent them back.

    But they are beautiful. I am going to give them to my 12 year old neice for her birthday.

    I ordered these earrings for my daughters birthday as sapphire is her birthstone. The ordering was easy and the delivery was really fast. The earrings are beautiful, the only thing is, I was a little disappointed in the size, I thought they would be a little larger. However, my daughter loves them and that's all that matters. Also, the price was fantastic. I will definately shop Amazon again!!

    Just OK, they were much smaller than I expected. Do not purchase for a woman who's hair may fall near the ears as these earrings will not be seen

    The picture of these earrings is somewhat misleading. I had expected a larger hoop. Quality is good compared to cost. If you like to wear large hoops, these probably are not for you.

    These earrings are smaller than I thought, but they almost match perfectly with a pendant I purchased. They look great and I wear them quite often. I would definitely recommend these earrings, before they're gone.

    I purchased these but I feel the stones are very small and the sapphires aren't really blue-
    they look black-- I didn't return them - just didn't bother. I wouldn't really recommend them
