More about Gemstones
Welcome to the enchanting realm of gemstones, where each stone tells a story, and every colour holds a secret. At TJC, we believe that buying a gemstone is not just a transaction; it's a journey of discovery and learning. Our expertly crafted Gemstone Guide is designed to educate and inspire, ensuring that you choose a treasure that resonates with your spirit and lifestyle when you select a gemstone.
Understanding Gemstone Quality: The Four Cs
The lustre of a gemstone is its song, its clarity, the melody. When considering gemstone quality, recall the Four Cs: Colour, Clarity, Cut, and Carat weight. A gemstone's colour should be vibrant, evenly distributed, and without zoning. Clarity refers to the natural inclusions within a stone; the fewer, the better. The cut is a testament to a gem cutter's skill, influencing the stone's brilliance and fire. Lastly, the carat weight measures the gemstone's size, but remember, bigger isn't always better. Balance is key.
Choosing the Right Gemstone: Colour and Meaning
From sapphire's deep blues to amethyst's regal purples, gemstones come in a kaleidoscope of colours. Each hue is significant and often associated with certain qualities or birth months. Are you seeking courage? Try the rich red of ruby. Looking for tranquillity? Aquamarine's soothing blue might be your match. TJC's Gemstone Guide helps you decipher these colours and choose a gemstone that aligns with your desires and needs.
