Shopping In India : Know Your Jewellery - 19

Guys and gals, while buying the Indian Jewellery, please keep in mind some important tips and detailed information to choose the best jewellery for you.

Colour varies with the stone. Generally a stone with a uniform and deep colour is of greater value.

Karat is a measure of the purity of gold, whereas carat indicates the weight of gemstone.

Natural stones are formed by nature and are scarce. If a stone is flawless, it might be synthetic.

Simulated stones are the cheapest of all. In these, the optical properties closely resemble the real gem, but the chemical properties are different. A jewellery would easily know the difference. An example is a spinal or zircon versus a diamond.

Imitation stones may be made of glass or plastic, or may be composite stones consisting of a thin slice of the gem material beneath (doublet) or between (tripler) other material of no value.

Natural pearls are rare.

Cultured pearls are formed in exactly the same way as natural pearls, with the difference being that man has deliberately inserted an "irritant" (small bead) into oysters.

Simulated pearls look like the real thing, many of them are plastic!

A gemstone should have visual beauty, durability and rarity.
