What is a gemstone?
A gemstone always comes from a set of crystals formed in rocks deep down. However, due to rock erosion and geological changes, some gemstones can be found on the surface in certain alluvial deposits (composed of mud or clay), river beds, as well as in the ocean.
These gems are called precious stones because they are rare, natural stones which correspond to the criteria of beauty and hardness defined by international gemologists. The name “precious stone” can only be used for a stone of natural origin.
The use of a precious stone in jewelry consists in the art of showcasing a precious gem on a precious metal. For millennia, diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires have been finely cut and highlighted by jewelers on unique jewelry such as rings, earrings, or necklaces.
