If you decide that you want to get a new jewelry or you are looking for the best present for a special person, then choosing the perfect ring is a great idea. However, before venturing to buy the first thing that seems nice, there is some basic information you need to know about gemstones in order to make the right decision. If you are to choose a blue topaz ring or any other type of gem, you should know that the topic is very complex and sometimes controversial. Fortunately, nowadays you are likely to find plenty of resources where you can read all the details you need to make an informed decision: books, magazines or dedicated online platforms. In case you are about to pay decent money on a garnet ring, you do your homework in advance and learn about the characteristics and particularities of each gem. This does not include only their color and shape, because there are many other features you may not know. Even if you may think that these are important only for experts, this is not actually true, because they will save you some money and stress. Being able to make the distinction between multiple products will help you choose the most qualitative one.
Buying jewelry as a present may seem a mainstream gesture, but you can actually transform it into something extremely thoughtful. You have probably heard about “personal stones”, and you can use this concept to show the person you are offering the present to that you took time to figure out the ideal gift. Nowadays, the trend (launched by some celebrities) of having such a talisman, has become something very popular. Even if sometimes the gem is a family heritage, you can try to choose the one associated with the zodiac sign of the person in question – it is said to bring good luck and establish a deep connection with the person wearing it. So whether you choose a garnet, a ruby or sapphire ring, make sure it matches the zodiac sign or at least the suitable color. Another thing you will have to decide upon is the shape of the gem, and here are the aspects you will have to consider: the table, the top (these are related to the top surface), the girdle (the band around the middle of the stone) and the pavilion (the bottom part). Besides this, the light is extremely important: any gem should be bright and catch the eye of the beholder, so make sure the cut and the shape are favoring its natural shine. The brightness is given not only by the original gem but also by the professionalism of the gemcutter, whose job is to get the best results out of a raw material.
In addition to this, the design is also something to remember, because a complicated one may cost you a bit more. Remember that buying a gem is not an easy task, because the category is extremely wide and probably unknown to you. So before investing in the actual jewel, invest some time in some research about this topic.
