Retaining Value over the Ages

At the time of their discovery, diamonds were valued because of their strength, brilliance, and ability to refract light and engrave metal. Diamonds were worn as adornments, used as cutting tools, served as a talisman to ward off evil, and were believed to provide protection in battle. Interestingly, diamonds were used as medical aid in the Dark Ages and were thought to cure illness and heal wounds when ingested. Diamonds are also the April birthstone, making Diamond Studs an excellent birthday present.

Diamonds: A Cut Above the Rest

With the surge in popularity of the precious stone, many companies and organizations began campaigns to educate jewelers and consumers about what to look for when selecting a diamond. As jewelers experimented with enhancing the diamond's visual appeal and presentation, new cutting techniques were adopted to help increase the stone's brilliance. Over time, several prominent shapes emerged as the most popular varieties, including round, oval, marquise, square (princess), and rectangular (emerald). The 4Cs of Diamonds - cut, color, clarity, and carat weight - are the most important characteristics to understand when making a diamond purchase.

St. Hildegard recommended the topaz as a cure for dim vision. After soaking a topaz in wine for three days and nights, rubbing the stone gently on the eyes would help. Some believed it could cure an even wider range of ailments, including the ability to ward off accidents and fires if kept in the home, and it could prevent nightmares if kept under a pillow.

Reflecting elegance, cultured pearls are highly sought after and regarded as one of the finest gems. A perfect complement to flashier gems, pearls have a distinct, serene beauty. For many centuries it was considered the most valuable.

 

How Do Cultured Whole Pearls Differ?

Akoya Cultured Pearls are the most familiar type of saltwater cultured pearl to most people in the US and other Western markets. Many customers think of white or cream-colored Akoyas as the classic pearl used for jewelry, especially single-strand necklaces. Japan and China both produce Akoya cultured pearls.

South Sea Cultured Pearls are saltwater cultured pearls sourced primarily from Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. These pearls can be white to silver or golden, depending on the type of oyster. Due to a long growth period, their large size and thick nacre, plus their limited critical growing conditions, are all factors contributing to their value.

Tahitian Cultured Pearls are cultivated primarily around the islands of French Polynesia. The most familiar of these is Tahiti. These saltwater cultured pearls sometimes referred to as black pearls, have a wide color range. They might be gray, black, or brown, and they can have blue, green, purple, or pink overtones.

The pearl is a symbol of perfection and incorruptibility and a symbol of long life and fertility. Our jewelry experts only select the best pearls for each of their exemplary designs.


 

Cubic Zirconia Studs

Acquire Colorless Perfection in Our CZ Studs

Did you know that the natural form of cubic zirconia is rare? That is why all cubic zirconia used in jewelry is synthesized, created by humans. Due to its low cost, durability, and close visual likeness to a diamond, synthetic cubic zirconia has remained the most important competitor for diamonds. It is flawless, having colorless perfection! Seek out the brilliance in our CZ Studs collection.

 
 

History & Current Trends

Although cubic zirconia was discovered as a natural mineral in 1937, crystals usable for faceting were first produced in 1969. A practical skull-melting technique was developed in the USSR in 1972, making commercial production feasible. At first, many jewelry retailers showed strong resistance to handling cubic zirconia, but now it has a current output of approximately 60 million carats per year, becoming the dominant diamond imitation. Thus, creating its own separate niche in the jeweler's range of goods.

Distinguishing Cubic Zirconia from the Diamond

  • HARDINESS. Approximately 8 on Mohs hardness scale versus a rating of 10 for diamonds.
  • CUT. Cubic Zirconia can be cut differently and "smoothed" compared to diamonds whose edges remain sharp because of the hardiness difference.
  • POLISHING. Diamonds will rarely show their polished marks, while CZ will show polishing marks along the same direction of polish.
  • DENSITY. The density of CZ is about 1.7 times that of a diamond, allowing skilled gem identifiers to tell the difference between the two by weight.
  • ENERGY. CZ is a thermal insulator, whereas the diamond is the most powerful thermal conductor.
  • COLOR. Only the rarest of diamonds are truly colorless. CZ is often entirely colorless, equivalent to a perfect "D" on a diamond's color grading scale.
