Show your colors with precious colored gemstones from Wempe
The fact that precious gemstones come in every color imaginable is proof that nature produces the most beautiful things. Be it blue or red, delicately shimmering or richly radiant - a precious gemstone of any color and richness transforms a piece of jewelry into something very extraordinary and says a lot about its wearer. At Wempe, you will find jewelry with gemstones in all shapes, colors, and cuts. You can also find rings, necklaces, and bracelets set with multiple stones of the same color, or with gemstones in a range of different shades. Exciting contrasts and effects are also created by using different shades of gold. Our Colonna, Sundance, and Paradise BY KIM jewelry lines all showcase the most precious of gemstones in all of the colors of the rainbow.
How to find the highest quality gemstones
The color of a gemstone is one of the most important indicators of the quality of the stone, but this is also very subjective. For example, did you know that iron produces the deep blues in sapphires and chrome produces the deep reds in rubies? Another important thing to look for is transparency, as this will tell you how much a particular gemstone is worth, as a general rule, the more transparent a stone, the more valuable it is. The right cut will perfect the brilliance and refraction of light within a colorful gemstone. In the search for the most valuable of all precious stones, the same rule applies: the rarer, the more valuable.
Tips for caring for your jewelry set with precious gemstones
Since gemstones are often much softer than diamonds, jewelry with gemstones needs to be polished regularly. Regular cleaning is particularly useful for jewelry set with tourmalines, a special type of gemstone, as these stones can become electrically charged and attract more dirt and dust than others. We offer professional polishing, cleaning, and repairs for all jewelry purchased from us. We can also rework or alter any pieces of jewelry you already have as part of our jewelry service in our showrooms. We look forward to your visit!
