Diamonds as a gift

The most popular gems around the world are “girls’ best friends”. Diamonds are cut diamonds. These are some of the hardest substances on Earth. Their value and rarity is very high, and their age can be measured from 900 million to 3 billion years! They are considered a symbol of eternal love, so they are often used as stones for engagement rings. In addition to classic colorless diamonds, diamonds of rare fancy colors are gaining popularity in the world. These are stones of yellow, pink, green, blue and other colors. Such specimens are extremely rare and very expensive. They can also have a good investment attractiveness, provided the natural origin of the color and a favorable purchase price.

You can order the production of a ring with one central diamond or a ring with a “track” of small diamonds of the same size. Now diamond stud earrings and various pendants are also popular. Believe me, the future owner will be satisfied with such a pleasant precious surprise.

Rubies as a gift

Rubies are stones for strong natures. Their red color is not suitable for everyone. Therefore, it is better to find out directly how the person to whom you want to make a gift treats them. Keep in mind that the brighter the ruby color and the closer it is to pure spectral, the more expensive it is. Pink, purple, brownish or orange shades reduce the cost. The most expensive color for ruby is saturated red, and has a commercial name (“Pigeon blood”).

As for the deposits, the best and most expensive rubies come from Burma (Myanmar). Rubies from Mozambique are an excellent alternative. They are many times more affordable, while they can also have top-end characteristics of color and purity. Rubies, like sapphires, are also almost always ennobled. There is nothing to worry about if the heating was without any additives. But it’s better not to mess with rubies in which the cracks were filled with lead glass. At its core, it is already a cheap ruby-glass composite, which has little in common with a real rare natural stone.

Emeralds as a gift

Emeralds are the second most popular gemstones in the world. But when planning to buy an emerald as a gift, it is better to find out in advance how a person treats the green color. Does he prefer dark tones or light ones, or maybe he likes very bright ones? There are a lot of subtleties affecting the beauty of the stone here. It can be especially difficult with the perception of the purity of the stone. Cracks and inclusions, often observed in emeralds, can be perceived differently by different people.

Sapphires as a gift

Blue sapphires are precious stones, the color of which is also very desirable among both women and men. Classic sapphires range from light celestial tones to thick, almost inky black. The most expensive stones have a rich blue color, which in trade is called “Royal Blue”, i.e. “royal blue”. But keep in mind that these sapphires may be too dark. Therefore, let’s pay attention to the second top color of sapphire. It can be described as an intense blue color or “Cornflower Blue”. These are stones with a pleasant silky sheen caused by the reflection of light from the smallest needle inclusions of the mineral rutile. Such a sapphire, when exposed to light, seems to glow from the inside. A very beautiful sight! These stones are rare, and their price is quite high.

Moissanite as a gift

What is Moissanite? There is an opinion that the original is always much better than the analog. But, in the case of moissanite and diamonds, this is not quite true. Visually, moissanite cannot be distinguished from a diamond even by a professional, it is very often used even by Hollywood stars to ensure the safety of multimillion-dollar diamonds, they replace them in their jewelry with moissanites when a busy evening is expected. In terms of hardness, it is inferior to a diamond quite a bit. According to the Mohs scale, the hardness of a diamond is 10.0, and moissanite is 9.25.

Moissanites are the second hardest gemstones after diamonds. But this stone shines much better than a diamond, as it has a higher ability to refract light. Moissanite in jewelry will attract more attention than a diamond, since under equal conditions it will show the best play of color and shine.

Moissanite cannot be called a cheap stone. Among synthetic stones, it is perhaps the most expensive. But, in comparison with a diamond, its cost is several times less. It all depends on the size and quality of the stone, in some cases the price may differ by 10 times.
