Gemstones are categorized in 2 distinct categories. Precious and Semi-Precious. Precious gems are Diamonds, Rubies, Emeralds, Sapphire etc. Semi-precious gems is everything else. This is according to the old terms but not necessary true these days. Due to the limited and rare supply, most stones are now valuable and fall in the precious stone category. Amethyst, Tourmaline, Moonstone, Coral, Citrine are popular gemstones in the semi-precious category. Depending on the reason to buy the gemstone and how you plan to wear it, will determine the correct gemstone. Now with astrology and other esoteric sciences gaining ground, people have realized there is a scientific reason why gemstones are worn and beneficial to you. Right gemstones are known to calibrate your body cycle and physiology that in turn lead to a better mental and physical state. If you are choosing gemstone for fashion, there are a few determining factors: • Budget • Daily or occasion wear • Statement piece or something to complement your outfit • Are you planning to build a jewelry wardrobe in a specific color scheme • Does it need to have astrology significance or is it a fashions piece Once you know the answer to the above questions, you will then understand whether you need to go in for a Precious stone or a semi-precious stone. Whether to buy a birthstone or something that catches your fancy. If it is fancy then what color suits you. Durability and the setting of the stone is very important. Is it going to be worn on a ring, pendant, earrings or bracelet. Gemstones worn on rings and bracelets needs to be more durable as they are subjected to a lot more work n wear. If it is going to be statement piece, the setting and design play an utmost priority over everything else. A simple design brings out the brilliance of the stone and you need to have a flawless and big gemstone for that setting. Intricate work and fancy pieces sometimes use smaller stones, as the gemstones themselves are used only to accentuate the design. This will be much cheaper and lighter on the pocket.
