If you’re talking about spring, there is no way you can ignore the lush green beauty of an emerald. Since the beginning of time, this gemstone has been admired for its timeless appeal, which looks even more magnificent when teamed up with diamonds.
Did You Know? It is extremely rare to find a natural emerald without any inclusions. Due to this, a high-quality emerald (without flaws) will often be more expensive than a top-quality diamond of the same weight.
The gorgeous hue of this gemstone is majorly responsible for its ever-increasing demand. Morganites are available in shades of peach and pink, and are typically very clean (considerably free from inclusions or flaws). The excellent transparency it showcases has further made this gem much sought-after, especially in rings.
Did You Know? Morganite is named after John Pierpont “J.P.” Morgan, a renowned American banker and gemstone collector.
Both coffee and diamonds have had a long history of alluring millions across the globe. Together, they create a heady combination that’s caught the eye of every discerning jewelry enthusiast. This particular variety of diamond gets its name after its hue, which resembles a cup of rich espresso. The popularity of coffee diamonds has soared in recent times due to its availability in both subtle and elaborate designs, including gorgeous vintage styles.
Did You Know? Not only are brown diamonds the most commonly mined colored diamonds across the globe, they are also the most affordable ones.
Tranquil yet stunning in appearance, an aquamarine is without doubt one of the most desired semi-precious stones in the world. Akin to the sea, the enticing hue of this gemstone ranges in shades of green-blue, pastel blue and greenish-blue. Naturally occurring sea-blue aquamarines are extremely rare, which makes them a prized possession.
Did You Know? The largest cut aquamarine in the world can be found at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. It’s called the Dom Pedro and weighs a jaw-dropping 10,363 carats.
This brilliant gemstone with a deep purple hue was once affordable only by the royals. Since then large deposits of this gem found across the world has made it accessible to everyone. Today, an amethyst is widely used in a variety of jewelry pieces that showcase its captivating beauty.
