Gems and Gemology - Fun Articles on the Facinating Wold of Gemstones
Name your favorite color and there will be a gemstone for you to enjoy. The world of colored stones is nature’s art palette. In the Whiteflash Gems and Gemology section you will find fun and interesting articles on a variety of gems describing their properties and their history and lore.
Ever wonder what your birthstone is? Or that of a loved one? You can find out here. Or are you thinking about “Something Blue” and want to see what options might be available in a nice blue gemstone? You’ll find this and more in our Gems and Gemology education section.
It is true that Whiteflash is better known for ideal diamonds, and you will find in-depth articles on all aspects of diamonds, diamond grading, and diamond light performance in our Diamonds Education section. But we have many customers who love color gemstones and who have relied on Whiteflash through the years to provide gems for their special pieces and special occassions. These include rare and important gems such as natural, unheated Burma rubies and exotic one-of-a-kind Padparacha sapphires. We also routinely provide accent gems such as side stones for diamond centerpieces and small “surprise” gemstones set on the inside of engagement rings to personalize them in a very private and intimate way.
Whatever your interest in gemstones we hope you will find these articles interesting and useful. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have on topics not contained in this section. Our team consists of a dozen GIA Accredited Jewelry Professions and Graduate Gemologists with extensive experience in not only diamonds but also the fascinating world of color.
