It's important and advisable to learn about diamonds before you purchase one. Diamonds are complex, with many attributes that affect their overall beauty and quality.

Gemstones allow you to bring a lot of color to your jewelry. From the deep purple of amethyst to the delicate pink sapphire to the gentle butter-yellow tourmaline, gemstone jewelry allows you to show off your personality. Remember that gemstones too have different grades of quality, and it is important to educate yourself about the qualities that are assessed to determine the overall value of your chosen stone.
