How to choose a gemstone

Nov 3, 2019 | Techniques

If a client wants us to source a gemstone, we usually obtain 3 or 4 to illustrate the differences in value. Sapphires are a very cost-effective coloured stone for setting in a ring. They are tough and will last a lifetime without scratching if taken care of. Pictured is 3 purple sapphires on Canadian and US bills.  If you have one compare it to the colour on your monitor. A modern camera still can not capture the colours (only 1/50th) that the eye can see. Think of taking a photo of the sunset and comparing it to the real thing. If possible it is best to choose one in person. We can help you choose a gemstone online with 25 years of experience. We also educate clients on cutting quality and clarity and colour saturation.
