An Introduction to Fascinating Colored Diamonds

The pressure is on when it comes to buying gifts this time of year. Our brilliant jewelry gift ideas inspire you to get cracking with your shopping. Today, in our list are enigmatic colored diamonds.

When approaching to buy a diamond, any diamond – colored or regular, basic research is expected and recommended. In nature, diamonds are found in almost every color and hue you can possibly imagine; grey, white, yellow, red, green and brown. And contrary to popular belief, it is actually very rare to find a diamond that doesn’t have any color at all. So, what makes a diamond’s color so important when making a purchase? It comes down to the behavior and physics of light when it passes through different mediums.

Colored diamonds (e.g. black, brown, gray) can negatively affect light absorption, and thus the sparkle of the stone that we see. That is why white (colorless) diamonds are generally more valuable and commonly used in jewelry as they have better reflective qualities. Of course, the exceptions to this rule are the rare and much sought after colors of pink, red, blue and orange.

Tips for Buying Quality Colored Diamonds

To determine what the gem will look like up close, it is important to use some helpful identification tips.

  • Colored Diamond Color Quality

Whether a diamond is pink, blue, brown, or any other color, the hue may vary in its richness. If a diamond is color enhanced in a lab, it will usually have a more vibrant color. However, some gems are created to have a pastel color. With natural diamonds, the majority of colored stones do not have very vibrant colors. If they do, they tend to be more expensive. However, people who plan to use these diamonds to create unique jewelry will find them to be good investments. Yellow, pink, blue, black, and brown diamonds are some of the most popular colors. People who are trying to choose a color should also consider the setting for the stone. Smaller colored diamonds may accent a larger white diamond nicely. The color of the type of setting is also important to consider. Some types of metal may complement certain colors better.

  • Colored Diamond Grade

Colored diamonds are usually assigned a specific grade, which is different than the famous “four Cs” of diamond quality. The color grade refers to the richness of the stone’s hue. Color grades are assigned by the Gemological Institute of America, the Independent Gemological Institute, or the European Gemological Laboratory. It is important to know that not all gems are sent to one of these authorities for evaluation. If a diamond is certified by one of these institutes and has been graded, it will likely cost more than similar diamonds that are not certified. When sellers are not providing certified gems, another way to see a better picture of the stone’s color quality is to ask for a multi-angle video rather than several still photos.

Remember, for every 10,000 carats of white diamonds mined each year there are only 5-10 carats of colored diamonds found. Colored diamonds evoke a sense of romance and luxury. Their scarcity and stunning beauty make them spectacular additions to any collection.

Go Green with Our Rich Emerald Jewelries




Today, in our last minute gift giving guide, we showcase our radiant emerald jewelries which also coincide with our green theme day celebration sale. Our finest quality emerald gemstones have lush, saturated color in the richest green.

A Brief History

Emeralds are revered since ages and it’s so prized that carat for carat, a fine emerald could be 2x-3x times as valuable as a diamond. In the ancient Indian mythology, emerald was thought to be green of growing things.

Since the time of kings and queens of Babylon as early as 4000 BC, it was worshipped by the Incas and mentioned in the Holy Bible. Besides, Greek legend Aristotle had written that owning an emerald enhances one’s aura and vibe.

He also stated “An emerald hung from the neck or worn in a ring will prevent the falling sickness (epilepsy). We, therefore, commend noblemen that it be hanged about the necks of their children that they fall not into this complaint.”

Greater Significance on Health

Emerald is said to remove negativity and bring positive emotional energy. It soothes mind and maintains a sense of harmony and security. This not only helps bring back your life on track but also let you realize your true connection with the universe. It is also believed to bring good fortune as one your one act of kindness raises the entire vibration of the universe. In true sense, emeralds open the doors to perfect love and trust while instilling you with security.

The Importance of the Four C’s

Let’s take a look at each one, in order of importance.

Emerald Color

Color is the most visible factor for emerald. Natural emeralds occur between very light and very dark. The most sought for emerald colors are bluish green to pure green, with vivid color saturation and tone that’s not too dark.

Emerald Clarity

Normally, emeralds bear inclusions that are visible to the unaided eye. Most emeralds are treated with oil, resin, and/or polymers to reduce the appearance of inclusions and surface reaching breaks.

Emerald Cut

An emerald should be cut symmetrically with uniform facets that allow for paramount color and brilliance. The most popular cut is a square or rectangular step cut also called as emerald cut. This cut maximize the beauty of the emerald’s color to create a bright, lively stone.

Emerald Carat

Emerald experts agree that it’s better to buy a smaller emerald with excellent color quality than a larger one with poor color quality. Quality-for-quality, the price of emerald can rise dramatically as the size increases.
Rest assured, you just need to buy your emerald from a site that has high quality images of their stones, like MySolitaire.com. They can be the focal point in a ring, necklace, bracelet, and earrings like these beauties below.

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.
