Selecting Your Perfect Gemstone
Whether you’ve been dreaming of a beautiful diamond or coloured gem (or both!) you may have already discovered that selecting your ideal gemstone can be both complex and confusing.
There’s a wealth of technical terminology to wade through and it’s also wise to learn about the many tricks and treatments that can be used in the gemstone trade. Many gem treatments are entirely acceptable but some, quite frankly, are designed to deceive adding to the anxiety when sourcing your gemstone.
Julia believes that selecting your gemstone doesn’t have to be that way.
When choosing your gem with Julia, you’ll be presented with a selection of the very best ethically sourced diamonds and coloured stones that fit within your available budget - so whichever stone you choose, you’ll never have to worry about breaking the bank!
Julia will carefully guide you through each gemstone option, answering any questions you may have in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere - so you can take the time to choose the special gem that “speaks” to you.
And growing up on her grandfather’s diamond mine, Julia knows a thing or two about gemstones. As well as being a traditional fine jeweller, she is also a Certified Gemmologist of The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (known as Gem-A) as well a GIA Applied Jewellery Professional and member of the Gemological Institute of America Alumni Association.
Although she’s far too modest to mention it herself, Julia is also blessed with having “The Eye” – a term used in the diamond grading industry for someone with an exceptional ability to see the most subtle colour variations and the slightest inclusions in gems - and it’s a highly sought-after skill in those grading and selecting gemstones.
This means that nothing escapes Julia’s attention when selecting diamonds and coloured gemstones for her clients – ensuring you will only ever be shown the highest quality gems within your budget.
