With their characteristic light to dark green color, emeralds are among one of the most popular natural gemstones. They are a type of beryl with a hardness of 7,5-8. Their distinguishing features include small cracks and inclusions which are proof of their natural origins. Together with rubies and sapphires, they make up the big three of gemstones.
COLOR: Emerald jewelry has a rare shade of green. The cool blend of blue and green is typical of these stones and no other stone can completely replace or imitate it. This color is caused by the addition of chromium in the stone's mineral structure.
CUT: Because of their popularity, a special type of cut called the "emerald cut" was developed for emeralds. This is a rectangular or square cut that better protects the stone from stress as a result of wear and tear and that enhances its brilliance and color. Emeralds are often cut into traditional round and oval shapes, which stand out especially in rings and necklaces.
WEIGHT: The weight of an emerald is expressed in carats (ct) to 2 decimal places - 1 ct = 0.20 g. With earrings and jewelry which have multiple emeralds, we always state the total number of carats of all the stones.
CARE: Emeralds are fragile and relatively sensitive, so they should avoid any impact or hot water. Cleaning should ideally only be done with a damp cloth. For a more complete overall look, rub the emerald with a cotton bud dipped in oil.
In the process of evaluating and certifying diamonds, they are assessed based on four fundamental parameters which are called the 4Cs: cut, clarity, color, and carat. These four properties then significantly influence the price of a diamond.
CUT: The right cut gives a diamond its radiant luster. The most popular cut is a round one known as the brilliant cut. Diamonds can also be cut into a wide array of “fantasy” cuts which include the marquise, baguette, heart, teardrop, oval, and princess (a three-sided or four-sided cut with sharp corners which is especially popular for engagement rings).
CLARITY: Clarity is determined by the number, size, and distribution of any inclusions (internal impurities) in a diamond:
- IF (Internally Flawless) – clear diamonds without any inclusions,
- VVS 1, VVS 2 (Very Very Slightly Included) – diamonds with very small inclusions,
- VS 1, VS 2 (Very Slightly Included) – diamonds with small inclusions,
- SI 1, SI 2 (Slightly Included) – diamonds with inclusions which can be seen with a magnifying glass,
- I1, I2, I3 (Included), also labeled as “P” in the Czech Republic – diamonds with medium to larger inclusions visible to the naked eye.
COLOR: The color of colorless to yellow diamonds is evaluated based on an international scale:
- D to F – colorless diamonds;
- G to J – near colorless diamonds;
- K to M – diamonds with a touch of yellow;
- N to Z – diamonds with a brown-yellow color.
Other colors of diamonds are simply called fancy. Some of our color diamonds are treated to enhance their color.
CARAT: The weight of diamonds is quoted in carats (ct), expressed to two decimal places, for example 0.25 ct. One (1) ct is equal to 0.2 grams. With earrings and jewelry which has multiple diamonds, we always state the total number of carats of all the diamonds.
