Precious gemstones are rare and include diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. Semi-precious gemstones are still sought after, but are more abundant and include a variety of colors. Peridot, amethyst, turquoise, pearl, coral, jade, and citrine are all examples of uniquely colored semi-precious stones. Exotic gemstones are stones that you should consider if you want to add an eclectic element to your style. Tanzanite, morganite, apatite, labradorite, and larimar are stunning exotic gemstones.


Like diamonds, you will want to consider the four C’s when purchasing gemstones: cut, clarity, color, and carat. One of the biggest differences: a flawless colored gemstone is actually rarer than a flawless diamond. Be aware that lab-created synthetic and simulated gemstones are out there. There's no shame in purchasing a gemstone that was created in a controlled lab environment or has been simulated to look like the real thing, but without flaws. Many gemstones are actually used as a part of gemstone energy therapy and are thought to possess healing qualities. Emerald is known as a stone that can promote intellectual thought. Rubies are used to help increase energy and creativity. And sapphires are believed to have a calming effect on people suffering from stress.
