Guide To Buying Gemstone Jewelry

Gemstone jewelry not only accessorizes your fashion choice, it also allows you to show off to your friends as the gemstone ring, earring or any other piece of gemstone you will be wearing is of high quality. For you to buy the right unit you need to consider a number of factors such as:

Color of gemstone

According to professionals, the color of the jewelry you choose determines 50-70% of the unit’s value. Gemstone jewelry comes in different colors and it’s up to you to choose the one that is ideal for you. For you to choose the right color jewelry you need to consider three main factors: Hue, tone and saturation.

Hue: It’s the basic color of the gemstone. When making the purchase, go for units that exhibit a pure color. If the jewelry has to have other colors, they should be minimal.

Tone: The tone represents the depth of a gemstone color. It can be light or dark. Professionals put the tone in different categories that include: light, medium light, medium, medium dark and dark.

There are some unscrupulous sellers that might try to sell you other items posing them as gemstone. If you are keen you can tell a real gemstone by simply looking at it. A real gemstone shouldn’t be too dark or too light. The unit should have a bright, rich look. To tell the real color of the jewelry you should look at it at different lights.

Clarity of the jewelry

Clarity describes the presence or absence of flaws inside or outside the gemstone. While it’s rare to get a flawless gemstone, you shouldn’t settle for one that is of poor clarity. While jewelry with a poor clarity is cheap, it’s not of much value to you as it will give you a poor, cheap look.

To tell the clarity of the unit that you are buying you should examine it from the top. If there isn’t a flaw, the flaw won’t show up in the face up position; therefore, it won’t affect the value and beauty of your unit. If you aren’t experienced at picking flaws, take the jewelry to a professional who will examine it under a microscope.

Cut of gemstone

A properly cut gemstone jewelry is beautiful to look at as it reflects light across its surface when you hold it up. If the unit has a cut that is too deep and narrow the surface area will be dark. If the cut is too shallow and wide, the jewelry will have parts of it washed out and lifeless. When making the purchase go for a unit with an ideal cut and desired shape. The jewelry that you go for should be symmetrical in all dimensions so that it appears balanced.

Conclusion

These are the few factors that you should consider when buying gemstone jewelry. To buy a real, high quality unit buy it from a reputable gemstone store.

Why the Color White Does not Work For Everyone

White is a staple in most women's wardrobes. But believe it or not, it does not work for everyone. In fact stark white does not work for most women!

Every woman has a unique natural movement that is expressed in her body language, physical features, and overall approach to life. We look our best when we wear colors that match our natural movement and expression.

Let's look at white through a vibrational / movement lens. Imagine a scale where one end of the scale represents no movement and the other end of the scale represents very high movement. Where would you place stark white on that scale?

Think about it, white is still, constant, plain and pure. White is color with nothing added. It would go on the no movement side of the scale. If you are the type of woman with a higher more dynamic or buoyant nature, white is going to appear as though it is sitting on top of your body rather than becoming a part of your whole expression of beauty. If you are a woman with a more subdued nature, white is way to stark and cold for your natural warmth and comforting style. Women with a more structured, stylized nature look best in stark white.

Here are some substitutes for white for women with different natural movement levels. Changing your pure, stark whites to these honoring substitutes will bring life and vitality to your natural beauty.

If your natural movement is more buoyant and spontaneous, you will look best in winter white. Your naturally sunny nature is honored by the warmth of winter white.

If your natural movement is more subdued and gentle, you will look best in eggshell white. Adding the grayed undertone supports your relaxed, calm approach to life.

If your natural movement is more swift and dynamic, you will look best in a shade of light tan that we call wheat. This golden tan color honors your rich and substantial approach to life.

Pure / stark white when worn by the wrong woman will add years and the illusion of added pounds to your appearance. So throw away the idea that white is a neutral that everyone can wear. It's just not true.

Giving up your white is not as hard as you think. Replacing it with your version of white to honor your true nature will take years off your appearance and pounds off your body. And with results like that who would not want to give up their stark whites!

Knowing your true nature and natural movement and matching your clothing to honor this natural expression will bring out your true beauty to a level that will even surprise yourself.
