About Gemstone Rings
Gemstones refer to a colored stone rather than a diamond, and includes both precious and semi-precious stones. While technically, pearls and amber are not gemstones because they are organic, both jewelers and consumers refer to them as gemstones when it comes to jewelry. The most common metals for gemstone rings are platinum, white, yellow, and rose gold.
Gemstone Ring Designs
Gemstones come in every imaginable color and tones. Most transparent gemstones are cut with facets, which reflect light back. Opaque gemstones such as jade and turquoise are usually cut in cabochons, rounded shapes, as are opals, which can be opaque or translucent. Cabochons have a softer look because of their rounded edges.
Stunning Gems - Three classic gemstones classified as precious are emeralds, rubies and sapphires.
- Lustrous Colors - The ideal gemstone cut for faceted stones maximizes the color’s intensity and the reflections of light back to the person looking at it. However, the right color is a matter of personal taste. In amethyst, for example, both the richest purple and the lightest lilac shades are both prized.
- Durability - Diamonds are famous for being the hardest gemstone, followed by corundum (ruby and sapphire), topaz, and quartz (amethyst, citrine, rose quartz, and more). Quartz is slightly harder than a steel nail, to give you a sense for comparison.
- Bold Settings - Vintage engagement rings often showcase bold settings featuring stunning precious and semi-precious gemstones.
