Your Guide to Become a Jewelry Expert
Like diamonds, there are many factors that affect the quality of a gemstone. Let us study each of these factors in detail and understand how they help us judge the gemstone’s quality.
For every gem variety, color is the most important value factor which is evaluated in a similar way for each gem. The jewelry industry recognizes the quality of gemstones by these three components of color:-
Note: Gemstones may have been treated to improve their appearance or durability and may require special care.
The term clarity means purity of a gemstone and freedom from the tiny internal characteristics and impurities that affect the refraction of light rays hence reducing the brilliance of the gemstone. Clarity plays a major part in determining the quality of a gemstone which in turn helps in its evaluation. Pale or pastel shades of gemstones easily show the flaws and are therefore not in demand. Slightly included gemstones fetch a very good amount while flawless gemstones are very rare and hence carry huge prices.
Gems are sold by their weight and not by their size. The measurement used to weigh them is carat, which is one-fifth of a gram. Different gemstones have different densities (mass per unit volume), so two gems that appear to be of the same size may actually have different weights. For example, a one-carat Emerald and a one carat Ruby may have same weight but will not have the same size because each is a different mineral with a different density.
Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and Tsavorite Garnet are some gemstones which rarely are seen in large sizes. Large sizes of these gems demand very high price per carat when compared to its smaller counterparts. Whereas Amethyst, Citrine, Blue Topaz and Amber are easily available in large sizes and therefore quote normal price per carat like their smaller sized stones.
Gemstones are a masterpiece of nature, but it's the skilled hard work of the gem cutter that unleashes its Brilliance (amount of white light returning to the eye from a gemstone) and Beauty (the visual appeal which is a combination of color, cutting quality and surface appearance).
When we talk about cut we refer to two different things.
Symmetrical cuts and colorful light reflections with no dark or washed out areas represent the ideal characteristics of a good cut while an asymmetrical cut talks of its low quality.
