Gemstone Education

Before making a purchase knowing the salient features of your gemstone is essential. At Bell Family Jewelers we can help you!

Gemstone Color

A gemstone is judged to be of the highest quality by its spotlessness of the hue, the intensity of the tone and color saturation. A gemstone would receive a high value if it is neither too light nor to dark and also has a few traces of colors in it.

Gemstone Cut

A gemstone is judged to be of the highest quality by its spotlessness of the hue, the intensity of the tone and color saturation. A gemstone would receive a high value if it is neither too light nor to dark and also has a few traces of colors in it.

Gemstone Enhancements

Heat-treatment is given to almost all colored gemstones and the process is called enhancement. Gemstones which are enhancement free and still have the color and clarity are extremely expensive. 

Gemstone Clarity

Most of the gemstones contain inclusions, which are made by tiny fractures. Even the most high quality gemstone has slight inclusions as flawless gemstones are a rarity and very expensive. 

Gemstone Size

The actual measure of the gemstone size cannot be evaluated by its carat eight. When a gemstone is set on jewelers, only the above surface can be viewed.

Gemstone Care

It is important that you take care of your precious gemstones so that they can become heirlooms.
