According to Forbes magazine, Sotheby’s just recently sold a sapphire for over 5 million dollars. This certainly speaks to both the rarity and the desirability of the precious stone. While not historically in the limelight as the white diamond has traditionally been, colored gemstones are gaining popularity with those who have an eye for both jewelry and fashion. Showing up on the wrists, fingers and necklines of Hollywood’s A-listers, these gemstones are gaining in popularity with women who desire elegance as well as something that is a little more avant-garde.
With the increased popularity of gemstones, there is now a formal grading system that allows buyers and sellers to be informed in their choice of stone and to verify its color and its clarity. While there is no disputing the beauty of the gemstones on today’s market, the added comfort of knowing your gemstone’s quality can be verified is an added bonus. Strikingly beautiful and impeccable quality? It seems colored gemstones might be here to stay.
