Our Quality Standards


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 that 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.

As like the same clarity, the color factor is also slightly difficult to determine because it applies according to the stone like all colorless gemstones such as silver topaz or diamonds, should be as colorless as possible and colored gemstones 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.
