Choosing Best Gemstones for Jewelry Gifts Published on: 03/04/2020 by Royi Sal Jewelry Team - 1 Comment Are you at a loss for gift ideas when it comes to birthdays or wedding anniversaries or any special occasions? So we are all turning our attention to gift buying. Here are ways in Choosing Best Gemstones for Jewelry Gifts. Stone set jewelry is always a winner when it comes to gifts, but what colors make the best choices? Choosing a gemstone from the vast selection out there can be a daunting prospect. So we have put together some suggestions to consider when making or buying a stone set jewelry to give to someone special. Best Gemstones For Jewelry Gifts 1. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend The reason why ‘white’ or clear stones are so popular, because they go with absolutely everything, making them ideal for gifts. If your recipient loves sparkle, then go for a diamond, cubic zirconia or white Swarovski Gemstones which all display a fabulous play of color. It is advisable to keep the size of the gemstone ‘believable’ if you are unsure. Earrings in round brilliant or princess cut should be 4mm to 5mm and pendants around 6mm. If looking at a fancy cut, then you can afford to go a little bigger so the shape isn’t lost. There are many other ‘white’ options to choose from which offer their own unique characteristics. Moonstones have that fabulous opalescence which gives them a mystical quality. Rock crystal or quartz has a beautiful vitreous luster and glass-like appearance, which is more subtle than cubic zirconia as it doesn’t have the same color refraction. Finally, for refined sophistication, the soft luster of a good quality pearl is difficult to beat. 2. Something blue It is a widely accepted fact that blue is the nation’s favorite color. Therefore, it stands to reason that when faced with a rainbow of colored stone choices, blue is a good option to go for. The translucent varieties tend to be the most popular, so sky blue topaz and aquamarine are right at the top of the list. Opaque and intense turquoise is a perennial favorite. One of our bestselling blue stones is labradorite which has flashes of iridescent blue, as opposed to being blue in its entirety which makes an interesting alternative. 3. A quick word about pink Despite being popular, pink is not a color for everyone, not an ideal choice for gift giving. For a more feminine choice, purple color stones such as amethyst are a much safer option. 4. A darker twist Finally, if you are looking for a stone with a more little edge and a tad more unisex, there are some great choices that spring to mind. The graphite grey of hematite is a terrific crowd-pleaser due to its metallic luster, giving it a unique finish. Hematite tends to be cut en cabochon or as beads as it is easily carved. Black Onyx is another option, which looks good with polished silver. It is popular in men’s beaded bracelets but also works well in Art Deco-inspired pieces, set alongside sparkling cubic zirconia or diamonds. Hopefully, these suggestions will give you some inspiration when choosing gemstones for your stone set jewelry gifts this year. Choosing Best Gemstones for Jewelry Gifts. P.S.
