Aquamarine’s watery name perfectly represents its beautiful pale dichroic colouring. This is one of the world’s most popular and well-known gemstones. Aquamarine is a real favourite of many gem collectors and in a world that’s becoming more and more polluted, Aquamarine offers us all a breath of fresh air. All members of the Beryl family obtain their colours by the presence of metallic elements, iron in the case of Aquamarine, without which pure Beryl remains colourless. Aquamarine’s younger sister Morganite is coloured by manganese, and its older and more complicated sister, Emerald, receives her personality from the presence of chromium, iron and vanadium. Aquamarine receives its colour from the presence of two types of iron, ferrous and ferric.
Until the late 1800s, Diamonds were among the rarest gemstones on the planet, and due to their incredible hardness, coupled with the belief that cutting them would reduce their magical powers, were often not faceted. In fact, it was not until the 1400s that the first rudimentary facets were being applied to the gem. Then, in the late 1800s, everything began to change with the discovery of Diamonds in South Africa. Through huge marketing campaigns by the owners of these new deposits, the new kid on the gem block went from being fairly unknown, to unquestionably the global leader within half a century.
White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal (usually nickel, Silver, or Palladium). 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.
