THE COLOR WHEN BUYING PRECIOUS GEMSTONES

Color is the main characteristic when buying precious gemstones. It is always preferable to select a color gemstone with a few defects rather than the opposite. It is also highly recommended to seek assistance when choosing the color as the color of a prescious gemstone requires expertise in gemology. Color is broken down into:

  • its hue which identifies the primary and secondary colors.
  • its tone which is classified on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the darkest.
  • its saturation which gives the intensity and is rated from slight to intense.`
  • CLARITY WHEN BUYING PRECIOUS GEMSTONES:

  • Clarity is characterized by the inclusions that are found on natural stone and are broken down into 3 categories:
  • gemstones with no inclusions belonging to  type 1 which are generally semi-precious gemstones
  • gemstones which generally have inclusions of type 2 rubies and sapphires
  • gemstones which always have inclusions belonging to type 3 like emeralds.

WEIGHT IN CARATS

The price of a precious gemstone is also calculated according to its weight.  Nonetheless, as color stones are less regular than diamonds, their weight is not as standardized. For equal dimensions, an emerald will weigh 0.90 times the weight of a diamond, while a ruby and a sapphire will weigh 1.20 times the weight of a diamond.  The table below gives the average weight for a precious gemstone according to their dimensions.
