Gemstones and Clarity

Posted by Daily Jewelry On April - 20 - 2012

Gemstones:  Considering Clarity
Gemstones are unique in that they possess such vivid color and can be used on some wonderful pieces of jewelry, creating a dazzling impression to those greeting the wearer. However, gemstones are not considered on the same scale as diamonds when referring to clarity. It is almost expected the gemstones will have inclusions, because of the nature of these stones. So while, one may want to minimize the number of inclusions within a stone, clarity is not of the utmost importance.

What to Think About When Considering ClarityWhen looking at gemstones and their clarity, it is important to become familiar with the particular gemstone you are interested in. What is the norm for these gems in terms of inclusions? Forming a basis as to what is typical will help in valuing and assessing gems as you shop. Some gems have more inclusions than others, but may still be worth a pretty penny. Rubies and emeralds, for instance, will tend to have more inclusions than other stones — inclusions that will not necessarily affect their overall value.

Colored gems make great additions to a woman’s jewelry box. But they are also an investment. Consider your options carefully by comparing and you should find yourself a satisfied customer with a beautiful piece of gemstone jewelry in no time.

    Is it not true that Gem Stones are graded as A, AA, and AAA?
    What do each of these Grades mean, as far as clarity?

    Thank you,
