Buying Pearl Jewelries of Pure Oceanic Love

Pearls signify class and wealth, and easily encapsulate the energy and purity of the oceans. Each piece of pearl jewelry from MySolitaire is special and will be cherished forever. From the depths of the ocean, pearls are organic but they are also, formed and born from within their mother: Pearl oyster. Moreover, pearls are the official birthstone for June and Zodiac gemstone for Gemini and Cancer.

Types of pearls stated by American Gem Society

  • Natural Pearls

Natural pearls are extremely rare and most have already been harvested. They occur in the wild without any human assistance.

  • Cultured Pearls

Cultured pearls are grown in pearl farms. The mollusks are raised until they are old enough to accept the mother-of-pearl bead nucleus. Through a delicate surgical procedure, the technician implants the bead and then the mollusks are returned to the water and cared for while the pearl forms.

  • Saltwater Pearls

Saltwater pearls include the akoya cultured pearls grown in Japanese and Chinese waters. They range in size from 2mm (tiny) to 10mm (rare) and are usually white or cream in color and round in shape.

  • Freshwater Pearls

These pearls are grown in freshwater lakes, rivers, and ponds. They can also be produced in various shapes and in an array of pastel colors.

  • Imitation Pearls

Imitation pearls are usually a coated glass bead. Most have a high luster, but not the depth of luster seen on high quality cultured pearls.

While buying pearls

An easy way to test the authenticity of pearls is by rubbing it against another pearl. Imitation pearls glide across each other but cultured pearls feel gritty because of the layers of nacre. Many culture pearls undergo treatments to enhance their luster but that doesn’t make them less real.

Professional jewelers like MySolitaire will help the customers understand the true value of pearl jewelries. Trust upon jewelry stores who have a good history of ethical standards, even better who are members of Jewelers of America.

So while buying pearls, look for detailed information that includes but not restricted to product specifications. Pay attention to the quality & weight of the pearls just like going for any other precious stones.

Taking care of your pearls

To preserve your pearls glow:

  1. Never clean pearls with laundry detergents, chlorine bleach, or even an ultrasonic cleaner.
  2. Never store your pearls in any type of plastic bag. Plastic corrupts the surface of the pearl. Use a soft cloth bag instead.
  3. Avoid leaving pearls to direct source of heat.
  4. Pearls are to be kept where it can find little moisture so they don’t dry up.
  5. Use gentle soap to clean, and dry it up preferably in a cotton cloth.

Our hand-picked pearls are the perfect way to show your love!

A Reliable Guide on Buying Sapphire Jewelries

Instantly recognizable, sapphire is one of the hardest mineral found on earth with typically a rich blue color. Other colors include pink, white, and red (which are rubies). Sapphire is also the birthstone of September. This gemstone symbolizes purity, loyalty, and trust. With its alluring blue color, notable clarity and hardness, sapphire is the one of the most popular gemstones. Natural and lab-created sapphire jewelries make for impressive gifts to give your loved ones.

A Brief History

It is believed by many that sapphire derived its name from the Greek word ‘sapheiros’ which means blue. In the 13th century, it was said that if a person was untrue to their partner, the sapphire ring they wore would change color. So sapphires used to be a test of fidelity which made them a favorite with erstwhile kings and clergy.  Later, in the 18th and 19th centuries, diamonds from South America and Africa were available in plenty and hence their prices declined. This led many to conclude that sapphires, rubies, and emeralds were more valuable and rare than diamonds.  As a result, engagement rings with colored gemstones such as sapphire were more valued.

The most famous royal blue sapphire engagement ring in modern history was of Princess Diana’s sapphire ring, which Prince Harry gave to his fiancée, Catherine Middleton on their engagement. This ring features a 12 carat oval, blue diamond surrounded by a halo of 14 solitaire diamonds and is revered all over the world.

Along with being romantic symbols of commitment, sapphires are also said to boost productivity and keep the wearer from negative thoughts.

Today, young couples buy sapphire jewelry because of these very qualities like sincerity, truth, faithfulness and nobility. Blue, pink, or yellow, you get all the sapphire jewelry designs at MySolitaire.

4Cs of Sapphire

  • Color

A sapphire’s worth is determined by a combination of hue, tone and saturation. Hue is your first impression of a gem’s basic color. Tone is the darkness or lightness of a color. Saturation is a color’s strength or intensity.

The most highly valued blue sapphires will be cornflower blue in color without any modifying colors, such as gray, green or black. The saturation should be as strong as possible without darkening the tone. Also, it is important to examine a stone from all angles to determine the presence or degree of zoning (unattractive colors) before making a purchasing decision. Go for sapphires that aren’t blue as they are a great option if you want the unique appeal of a colorful center stone for a lesser price.

  • Cut

The stone’s cut isn’t as important as the cut of a diamond as it’s difficult to notice inclusion on darker gemstones. Asterism in a sapphire will only be revealed if the stone is cut as a cabochon. Look for a cabochon with a symmetrical outline and a star that’s centered when the gem rests on its base. The dome of the cabochon should be a bit high—about two-thirds of the stone’s width—to focus the star sharply. An oval-cut one has an inherited feel, while a round bezel setting gives off a contemporary touch.

  • Clarity

Sapphires with extremely high clarity are rare. So, need not to worry looking for a flawless stone as long as there aren’t major dark inclusions. Besides, the price comes down significantly with more inclusions on the gemstone.

  • Carat

Sapphires can range in size from a few points to hundreds of carats. Generally, blue sapphires weigh less than 5 carats as large sapphires are exceedingly rare.

Treatment

Heating is one common treatment, particularly for blue sapphires. The results are stable and durable, and heat-treated blue sapphires typically retain their enhanced effects permanently. Because of this, the practice is commonly accepted in the colored stone market.

Look for sapphires with beautiful, custom designed settings done by our artisans!

In black diamonds consistency of the color is equally important. So a good quality diamond will have a rich blackish color which spreads evenly across the stone. Also, it is not unusual for black diamonds to have minor surface inclusions and polishing lines.

Today maximum number of black diamonds available in the market are enhanced by a safe form of irradiation and heat. However, they are absolutely natural and real diamonds that have been treated to improve the color.

Revealing Expert Advice On Exquisite Morganite Jewelries

Morganite is a beautiful, soft pink gemstone and an expression of elegance. It’s increasingly becoming popular as a choice of jewelry among both sexes due to its high durability and affordability, especially allowing for its rarity.

A member of the beryl family, morganite shows a range of pink colors due to traces of manganese. It is pastel or pale in color by nature and known for its transparent peach-pink shade though it also occurs as soft pink, violet-pink, or pale salmon. Also, strong color in morganite is rare, and gems usually have to be large to achieve the finest color. Like most beryls, morganite makes an excellent jewelry stone.

How Morganite Distinguishes from Other Gemstones

Here are a few of the gemological properties of morganite to understand:

  • Its durability is rated as excellent.
  • Its hardness is 7.5 – 8.0 on the Mohs hardness scale which is comparable to emerald, topaz, and spinel.
  • Its refractive index is 1.560 – 1.600, and its specific gravity is 2.67 – 2.90.

These characteristics help identify morganite as beryl and distinguish it from other pink gemstones.

Determining The Perfect Color

As you may know, the most important factor in determining the value of a colored gemstone is: Color.

Medium light to medium pink, clean stones with custom cuts are the most valuable. Very light and included stones are on the lower end of the value spectrum. As morganite frequently occurs in larger crystals, the increase in price with size is very even. Surprisingly, smaller morganites, if they show good color, can be more valuable than larger ones.

Morganite is commonly heat treated to remove yellow and orange hues and to achieve a purely pink stone. This type of enhancement has an excellent stability rating, and the stone requires no special treatment once it has been enhanced.

Morganite is a Type2 gemstone, which means they are usually found with few inclusions. The best quality morganite is “clean” and free of visible inclusions of any kind. It exhibits an attractive vitreous lustre when cut and polished. Morganite engagement rings with highest clarity grades are considered more admired and valued.

Why Black Diamond Stud Earrings Are So Popular

Black diamond studs add a touch of style and poise and are revered for their unique light absorbing properties. Unlike colorless diamonds, cut, color, clarity, and carat weight do not apply to black diamonds. They weigh lighter than colorless diamonds and often have minor inclusions due to their coloring. These seductive black diamond stud earrings have increased in popularity in recent years and will be sure to turn heads.

Associating earrings with just women is a thing of the past. Now, with the evolving trend in fashion, men are more than ever interested in earrings, jewelry and stylish accessories. A lot of men, especially famous personalities, wear this look!

Black studs stuck well with men because of its bold color. Celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Michael Jordan, and David Beckham are known for wearing black diamond studs such as the one below.

Black_Diamond_Stud_Earrings_361802_1_Even though men’s earrings with diamond studs have always been popular, every now and often we see different geometric that are trending for men’s earrings. Celebrities like Harrison Ford, Ne-Yo, Usher, and Chris Brown are seen wearing princess cut diamond studs on red carpet events or as a part of their everyday outfit.

Certifying Black Diamond Stud Earrings

How does diamond certification come into play with black diamond studs? Many jewelers don’t provide grading certificates for pre-set pairs of diamond studs.

However, if you are going for a DIY pair of stud earrings and starting with loose diamonds, you should definitely seek out a GIA or AGSL certificate. All of the loose diamonds in our collection at MySolitaire are certified, so you can design a pair of black diamond studs with two certified stones.

Assuming your jeweler is a trusted and certified professional, he will provide you with the real thing and not an enhanced copy. Clarity is the most important aspect of black diamond quality; however, the quality standards of black diamonds are very different. Always seek the GIA certificate and receive the original copy with your jewelry purchase, as you can trust that the GIA only grades natural black diamonds as an assurance of its genuineness. With the affordable prices, it is worth your while to own the real offer, which is only available at select diamond stores like MySolitaire.
