Emerald has been a wellspring of mystery and the symbol of immortality and faith. When you look at it closely yourself, you would understand why it is one of the most highly prized of all gems, as well as one of the rarest and most valuable.
Emerald weighing more than several carats are extremely rare and costly. A fine stone of good color, which is deep green with a tinge of yellow or blue, and free of inclusions and flaws, may be harder to get. In Shiraz Jewelry, we have a wide selection of emeralds for you to choose. Only the finest qualities are transparent. Often the emerald is clouded by inclusions (liquid or gas bubbles, healing cracks, and foreign crystals). These are not classified as faults, but are evidence as to genuineness of the stone as compared with synthetic and other imitations.
It is important for you to distinguish emeralds which are synthetic and original. We'll teach you how !
The color of Emerald is much looking forward by people to make jewelries, especially to match with some dress collection. You'll love emeralds if green is your favorite color.
Diamond is the best-known gem. It signifies love, eternity, strength, and everlasting affection. For those reasons you will buy it when you propose someone special in a form of engagement ring and/or wedding jewelry.
The value of a diamond depends on these factors: color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. Large diamonds are rarer than small ones, and therefore more valuable. However, the price of a diamond does not go up in simple steps along with size !
Color is the most important single factor that contributes to the value of a diamond. Several grading scales are currently in use; on the GIA scale, for example, the highest-quality color grades are D, E, and F - all corresponding to a pure "white" color with no tinge of yellow. To the untrained eye, two diamonds may both appear "white", whereas one might actually be F and the other J on the GIA scale, and the difference in price could be as much as 35 percent.
In Shiraz Jewelry, you will deepen the level of understanding about diamond, and we stand on your side to help you. Remember, only buy diamond in Chiang Mai from a reputable shop.
