ABOUT Gemstones

Gemstones are created by natural phenomena, with their colors determined by the elements present within them. Although there are about 200 different types of gemstones found in the world, only a select few are suitable for fine jewelry that will last a lifetime. Some gemstones may have inclusions or softness issues, which is a consideration when selecting a gemstone for an engagement ring. However, sapphires, emeralds, aquamarine, moissanite, and morganite are excellent alternatives to diamonds and are perfect for engagement rings.
