Jewelry has been made to adorn nearly every body part, from hairpins to toe rings, and even genital jewelry. The word jewelry itself is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicized from the Old French "jouel", and beyond that, to the Latin word "jocale", meaning plaything. This ring is given as a symbol of love and friendship – but it is also commonly used as a wedding ring in Ireland. On the ring, the hands denote friendship, the heart symbolizes love, while the crown is a sign of loyalty.
Basic knowledge of jewelry
1. What are gems and jade?
Gemstones are broadly the most beautiful and rarest of stones. It includes two broad categories of gems and jade. The narrow sense of gems refers to single-crystal minerals that are naturally produced as a single substance (such as natural gold, diamond) or a compound (such as crystal, red and sapphire).
Jade refers to polycrystalline rocks composed of single or multiple minerals.
2. What is jade?
Jade is known as the king of jadeite. Its chemical composition is sodium aluminum silicate, and its mineral composition is pyroxene, mainly composed of jadeite. Its structure is a dense and massive aggregate of countless fine fibrous microcrystals with a blanket structure. It is very tough, can withstand a high impact force and pressure, and its products are durable.
The hardness of jadeite is 6.5-7 on the Mohs scale. The glass luster or pearl luster is usually translucent, and a few are transparent (full transparent is called "glass parts"). The fractures are uneven. The origin of jadeite is mainly concentrated in the Myitkyina Mengong area in northern Myanmar.
How to choose the right gemstone
There are no established rules or shortcuts for choosing gems. The most important thing you need to do is to follow your instincts.
For these gems, in addition to their value and status, their attractiveness lies in their unique ability to stimulate body vitality. As a natural conductor of energy, many people believe that gemstones will affect our vitality. This is why gem cutters only tend to cut quiet emeralds and sapphires in the afternoon because the vibrant energy of rubies can disrupt their sleep.
Ruby is a symbol of enthusiasm and represents the hottest light. They have sufficient hardness and durability, pure colors and are very suitable for daily wear.
The emerald, which is green like a leaf, is often regarded as a symbol of the season. Impurities in emeralds are usually visible to the naked eye. They have a very romantic name: Jardins, which stands for gardens in French.
Blue, as a color representing heaven and the ocean, can give a spiritual sublimation, and sapphire is second only to diamond in hardness. Among the sapphires, one of the rarest gems is Kashmir sapphire, because the surface has silk-like smooth rutile needles, it has a velvety appearance, and is therefore highly sought after, but the most important thing is the balance of Kashmir sapphire color and saturation.
