Precious Stones - Fascinating Gem Stones

A Precious Stone is a piece of rare mineral sometimes soft, which when cut and polished is used to make exclusive jewelry and other adornments. Known for their luster and healing powers worldwide; they have also been used since long for making precious jewelry. Most of the stones used worldwide are hand cut and so the exclusivity associated with them makes them very unique and expensive.

The stones are mostly handcrafted by our expert artisans with utmost care to preserve their natural form. These precious stones are available in faceted and cabochons types and in different shapes and sizes. We offer these precious stones in loose cut stones, stone strands, sorties, chips, rondelles, carved, necklace forms and in many more varieties.

Precious stones are also classified into different groups, species, and varieties like Ruby, Emerald & Sapphire.


This beautiful medium pink to blood red stone is the birthstone for July. The ruby is formed from the mineral corundum, also known as aluminum oxide, when it combines with chromium. Rubies are most highly prized for their size as well as their color, with the deep dark red varieties, being the most highly valued.


The emerald has always been popular for its dramatic green appearance when paired with gold. The emerald is produced when the mineral beryl is combined with chromium or vanadium in the earth. The inner light and reflective ability of the emerald, known as its fire, adds the warm appearance to the gem. Clarity and color are used in pricing emeralds with the deeper green to greenish blue colors with lots of clarity and fire the most highly valued.


The final true precious stone is the beautiful blue sapphire. Sapphire is actually made from the same minerals as rubies, just with different ratios that produce the blue color. Sapphire is very hard and is used in many types of applications other than jewelry. Believe it or not there are many different colors of sapphires, although anything but the blue color is of less value, unless you happen to have a rare salmon or deep pink colored sapphire. There are purple, clear, yellow, green and even orange and brown sapphires that may be used in jewelry, although they are typically not common.

Separating precious stones into these types of groups helps to identify their composition, their color, and their origin. Precious stones also have a refractive index, dispersion, specific gravity, hardness, cleavage, fracture, and luster. Each of these features is important when assessing the value of the stone.
