Gemstones - Precious Minerals for Jewellery Making

The history of jewellery is almost as old as that of human beings, as adorning the body with small accessories has been a part of early customs. In addition to precious metals such as gold and silver, gemstones have been very popular for producing necklaces, rings, earrings or bracelets since ancient times. Rubies, sapphires, emeralds, opal, onyx, agate, and many more have been used to make jewellery. Among the most sought-after and, at the same time, most expensive gemstones are certainly diamonds but jewellery made of opal, amber, and moonstone is very popular among women and men.

Gemstones: Jewellery Stones with Special Qualities

It is difficult to distinguish between the terms gemstone, precious stone, or semi-precious stone in common usage. Sometimes all minerals used for jewellery production are considered gemstones, while other times, gemstones are generally equated with precious stones. Precious stones have some established criteria: They should have a certain level of hardness, be relatively rare, and not contain any foreign substances. Furthermore, precious stones should not be artificially produced. After all, their natural structures, shapes, and colours are what make them so unique, and turn the jewellery in which they are incorporated into genuine unique pieces. But gemstones captivate not only due to their appearance; many of them also carry special meanings. For example, some are considered protective stones against negative influences, lucky charms or symbolise harmony or passion. In addition, some gemstones are even said to have a healing effect or a positive influence on health. Some gemstones are said to promote balance, provide peace, strengthen self-confidence, or relieve stress.
