For those frightened of spiders or flying, wearing Aquamarine is said to suppress one’s phobias. Over recent years, the lighter, natural colour has become very popular amongst gemstone collectors, whereas often in the past it was heat-treated to remove any green tinges.
The youngest Diamonds are believed to have been formed over 100 million years ago! For the necessary conditions to occur naturally, it is believed that Diamonds were created some 90 to 120 miles beneath the Earth’s crust. The only other valuable gem on the planet to crystallise under these hostile conditions is Peridot. Although Africa is still a major supplier of Diamonds, today it holds less than 50% of the market share, and it cannot control the market as much as it once did.
White gold is usually enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
