Found and appreciated around the world, colorful and shimmering cut gemstones share a universal appeal. The attraction of gemstone jewelry, with its numerous color and style combinations, is its ability to create, capture or replicate personal style. While most buyers likely choose gemstones for their beauty and to represent their feelings toward another, others choose gemstones for what they consider to be their therapeutic benefits, or their symbolism. When it comes to colored gemstones the traditional differentiation of precious and semi-precious gemstones are rarity: diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald were considered precious, while all other gemstones were considered semi-precious. Then there are lab-created, synthetic, and simulated gemstones, these resemble the beauty of more costly genuine gemstones and have been popular in jewelry for many hears. It is important to know, though, that the value of these imitations varies greatly, and their endless beauty depends on the kind of gem they are.
