How to buy green emerald studs
Green emerald studs are not only beautiful, but also classy. An emerald gem is a precious stone used to make jewelry. Emerald jewelry is quite expensive, but worth the money. Here is how to buy green emerald studs.
You have to admit that the first thing that attracts you to any piece of jewelry is the color. The green color of the emerald is quite unique. There are three aspects of color- hue, tone and saturation. Hue is easy to understand, as it refers to the type of green the emerald has. Emeralds are either yellowish green or bluish green. The most common emerald color is the bluish green. Tone refers to the light on the emerald. A natural emerald is in the spectrum of very dark and very light. There is a misconception that emeralds of medium darkness to very dark are the best. Before coming into this conclusion, consider the saturation. Saturation is the aspect of color that gives it strength or intensity. Saturation falls between dull and vivid. An emerald with a dull saturation is not likely to impress your eyes.
The price of emerald studs is highly dependent on the color among other factors. A dark tone and high saturation will result in a higher price. However, it is possible to find a beautiful bright emerald with good saturation for a low price. It is wise to have a look at the emerald on the stud before purchasing it. With online shopping this can prove difficult. But there are online shopping market places that have high definition videos of their jewelry.
If you are precious stones enthusiast, then you will probably ask for certificate. With emeralds certificates do not matter. What is of importance is the level of attractiveness of the emerald. Emeralds, unlike diamonds and gold, do not have investment value. It is not possible to resell an emerald at a profit.
Clarity is an important factor in gems. In the case of emeralds, clarity refers to the inclusions. How does the emerald look inside? What makes the emerald different from the others? Inclusions in emeralds include bits of other minerals, crystals which are a result of the crystallization process and liquids. It is nearly impossible to find an emerald without inclusions. Unlike in other stones, inclusions in emeralds are considered natural. They are not used as a criterion to degrade the value of the jewelry. However do not be fooled into buying a stud with too many inclusions.
Contrary to what many people think, emeralds can handle falls. However, do not drop them on purpose. An emerald stud does not have to break when you drop it a small distance. Most others gems will beak, but emeralds are not that fragile.
Emeralds studs are nice pieces of jewelry to own. However, you have to be careful when purchasing them. There are many fakes in the world of gem jewelry.
