Always in demand but never in plentiful supply, the popularity of Pink Sapphire is soaring and has been for some time. Pink Sapphires share a colour border with Ruby – some Pink Sapphires are so close to this border that they’re termed ‘Hot Pink’. When looking into a Pink Sapphire you’ll be awestruck by the shimmering mass of beautiful hues and tones within. Although the lighter pinks are incredibly beautiful, the price of more vivid pinks, especially if the clarity is good, can be thousands of pounds per carat.
Pink Sapphires were once even rarer than they are today. Thankfully as the 1990s drew to a close, deposits were found in Madagascar that was not only of a high quality but were also coming out of the ground in enough of a quantity that jewellers around the world could begin to showcase pieces in their display cases, and thus the gem began to grow rapidly in popularity. And one last thing, Pink Sapphire is associated with the zodiac star signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Taurus.
Said to be “a girl’s best friend”, the name Diamond derives from the ancient Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning invincible. The quality of this gem’s colour, clarity and cut are more tightly measured than for any other gemstone, and although there are various standards used across the globe, that of the Gemological Institution of America (GIA) is the most widely used. The value of similar carat weight of Diamonds can vary dramatically, based on their clarity and colour - and to some extents more importantly - how well the gemstone has been cut. Its very high refractive index is what gives the gem its famous sparkle; its strong lustre is described as an adamantine lustre.
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.
All gemstones can be damaged through wear and tear. Make sure you check for loose stones or damaged claws periodically. Always take your jewellery off whenever you are doing activities that might cause damage. Remember that household cleaners and chlorine in swimming pools can damage many gems.
Jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
