4Cs to Look for When Buying Loose Gemstones Online
COLOUR: Largely depending on three factors, hue, tone and saturation; the colour of a gemstone is determined. Each gemstone has a unique colour that distinguishes it from the other while also making it the only factor that audience swoon over a particular one. From bright colours to subtle ones, from iridescence to pleochroism, each gemstone houses a unique property of colour display.
CLARITY: A gemstone with less inclusions has a large clarity and thus also showcases a dazzling brilliance. On the other hand, a gemstone with a large amount of inclusion will also affect its appearance as compared to the one with less or negligible inclusions. Clarity of a stone is largely also interconnected on the way a stone is cut. The cutting and faceting of a stone enhances the appeal of the stone thus sometimes also overshadowing its appearance with inclusions.
CUT: Ranging from the simplest and standard cuts, we house a variety that we leave you charmed and suit your regal appeal and taste. From round, square, octagon, to baguette, cushion and trillion; you can see the art of cutting gemstone done with finesse in our collection. Achieved with only skill and precision, the cut and facets of a gemstone are what describe its beauty and brilliance.
CARAT WEIGHT: It is not always true that the larger the gemstone, more the carat weight. A larger gemstone may be less deep and have inclusions thus lowering its popularity and weight. While a small deep gemstone will be a more popular sort as their weight will mostly be hidden in the setting of a jewellery piece.
