Our Quality Standards


Clarity

Clarity is defined as the degree to which the stone is free of inclusions. Unlike a shape, size or weight, the factor of clarity is not as easy to determine. Clarity ranges from Beads which appear perfect under a 10X magnifier (called flawless) to those which show a major number of flaws to the unaided eye. In between are gemstones that are called "eye clean" which we usually call "EC". The more expensive the gemstone type, the more clarity faults or flaws are acceptable. An emerald with flaws visible to the unaided eye is acceptable; a garnet with such flaws might not be.

Color

As like same clarity, color factor is also slightly difficult to determine because it applies according to stone like all colorless gemstones such as silver topaz or diamonds, should be as colorless as possible and colored gemstone should have that color as rich as possible. In almost all cases of faceted, colored gemstones, the color should be as deep as possible without being opaque.
