Why Jewellery Is Made Using Gemstones


gemstones-thumbnail.jpgGemstones. They’re often an important feature in jewellery. From pendants to earrings, they can range from a mere fashion statement to some important cultural significance.

But why are gemstones, out of everything else, used the most? Today, we’re going to answer that very question.

Versatility

Gemstones can go with almost any kind of accessory. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets… Every piece of jewellery you can name, you can probably fit a nice amethyst or pearl into it.

This is why you find such a selection in your typical jewellery shop. The most popular are topaz, sapphires, and diamonds, though others exist as close seconds.

Aesthetic

Sometimes, the simplest explanations are the best. Gemstones are chosen for jewellery simply because they look nice. But there’s definitely more to it than that.

Depending on the gemstone, they could complete your outfit like nothing else can. If you want a chic, elegant look, you can never go wrong with gemstones.

The thing about them is that they contain a timeless beauty, meaning they will never go out of fashion and will always look beautiful.

Again, this applies to almost every gemstone out there. Choosing one is merely a matter of preference.

Symbolism

Finally, we get to the most important part of gemstones - the meaning behind each stone. This can be anything from what the colour of stone symbolises in general to it being your birthstone.

For example, you may choose to wear sapphires to pass a wealthy, royal look, especially when paired with diamonds. On the other hand, you may choose to wear sapphires because you were born in September.

Whatever reason you choose to wear gemstones, you will find a nice selection in our store at Cuttings Jewellers.
