Guide to Diamonds and Gemstones
Choosing the right stone is an important part of creating your custom jewelry. In addition to finding a color and shape that you love, the durability of your stone should be concurrent with your lifestyle, how often you will wear the stone, and the type of jewelry you are creating. Considering all of these factors will help ensure that your custom piece stays in excellent condition for years to come, and we will be there every step of the way to find the perfect stone for you.
Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds
Corundum is the mineral that is more commonly known as sapphires and rubies. Rubies are known for their red color and while sapphires are known by many as blue, they actually come in a huge variety of colors. Some sapphires even have multiple colors present in one stone or change color depending on the lighting conditions. We have a diversity of responsibly sourced Sapphires including ones from Montana.
We don't recommend Emeralds as center stones in everyday rings, as they can be brittle and require delicate care. Additionally, responsibly sourced emeralds are harder to source than other stones. However, we do have sources for both ethically sourced and lab grown emeralds if they are right for your project.
