What makes jewelry? Gems
Also important are the “roads” optical properties, which determine such important “external” parameters as brilliance, “play of light” and “purity”. The shape of the cut also affects the cost. Fashion makes its adjustments, and, of course, all advertising costs somehow affect the price of the product. The most valuable stones, of course, are diamonds. A diamond is not only the main part of the jewelry, but also serves as a good investment. But beware, before you give a lot of money – make sure the value of the stone. Fakes are so good that it is very, very difficult to distinguish them with the naked eye. A couple of years ago, fraudsters tried to put on bail in one of Minsk banks a magnificent fake. To the credit of the security officers and the police, they were able to expose them, but the idea of the “operation” was very close to successful implementation. The forgery even successfully passed two examinations, but, fortunately, the security officers received information about the preparation of the scam, and managed to detain the criminals. The product label with precious stones contains information about them. For example, the entry 1 Cr-80 0.75 ½A means the following: 1 – the number of diamonds in the product, Cr-80 means that the stone has a round facet with 80 facets. Another is the cut “princess”, denoted as “Pr”, and “emerald” – “From”. 0.75 is the weight of a diamond in carats. If you forget – 1 carat is equal to 0.2 grams. When there are several small stones in the product, their total weight is indicated. ½ – diamond characteristics, color group and quality group, A (or B) – cut quality. The larger the stone, the more noticeable the eye characteristics. Ideally, they are both equal to 1. The maximum value is 6/6, these are the lowest characteristics of the characteristics. For small stones weighing up to 0.05 carats, you can practically ignore their value. Buying stones abroad, it is useful to require a certificate. Of course, it is advisable to check the stone with a detector of authenticity. But as already mentioned above, forgeries are very high-quality, for example, products made from so-called moissonite (silicon carbide) have parameters similar to diamonds, and a conventional detector does not detect them. The exception is the recently appeared devices measuring electrical conductivity. In general, it is better not to risk and entrust the expertise to specialists. Buy any jewelry, and even more so with precious stones, it is better in specialty stores. It gives a certain guarantee against fakes. Wear jewelry should be, adhering to certain rules. You should not try to look like a Christmas tree – one, maximum two, but beautiful products are enough. A set is not the maximum possible amount of jewelry on the body, but a combination, for example, of earrings with a bracelet or a necklace with a ring. Belonging to the day style – products made of silver and rock crystal. Gold and precious stones look better in the evening. Gold and silver are usually not combined with each other. As well as stones of various colors. Exception – cases when they are part of one decoration. Any jewelry is selected in such a way as to shade the color of the eyes, skin or hair. And, of course, they should fit into the overall style of the wearer’s clothing. And finally. Remember that joy will bring only the decoration that you like, and not chosen for reasons of prestige or value.
