Real emerald vs fakes

One of the most beautiful and mysterious gems is considered an emerald. Royal stone and stars adore magnificent stone. The mineral is considered a symbol of power, wealth and wisdom. Emerald is able to change the life of its owner: it attracts luck and protects against disease. But a magical effect is possible only if the stone is real. Often unscrupulous sellers give out imitations as a natural mineral. To avoid cheating, it is important to know what a real emerald looks like, and by what criteria it can be distinguished from a fake.

What a genuine emerald looks like
Emerald is called “green ice”. This variety of beryl has a special cold shine and a green tint. The grassy color of the mineral is due to a small amount of chromium, which is present in its structure. Sometimes the role of chromium is vanadium, which affects the saturation and properties of beryl.

Those who want to buy a real stone should know what an emerald looks like and what characteristics of the mineral are key. The table will help to understand. Continue reading

How to make gold chains: 8 stages of the birth of a masterpiece

It’s hard to argue with the popularity of gold chains. Surely in each of your treasured caskets you will find one or several similar jewelry. They can look completely different depending on the type of weaving, style, weight and other factors. But such products are always universal, durable and loved.

True, the “fashionable” at that time was considered an exceptionally massive chain that only very wealthy men could afford. Continue reading

The main thing is for the bracelet to sit: we determine the size of the main “manual” jewelry

A bright, attractive, alluring bracelet has long turned from a powerful amulet (and this is how our ancestors perceived it) into a familiar and very important accessory. He is equally loved by both women and men, and without this decoration it is difficult to imagine a stylish image. A laconic chain or a dozen exaggerated items in a gypsy style, gold or jewelry, complemented by a clasp or inlaid with precious stones – in any case, the bracelet must not only be worn correctly.

First of all, you need to be able to determine the size of the bracelet on your hand. Perhaps this is even more important than choosing the right decoration design for you. You see, even the most beautiful product can lose all its attractiveness as soon as you try it on yourself. And all because our personality, features of appearance and style of clothing directly affect how the accessory will look at us. The size of the hand for the bracelet is a very important parameter when choosing this jewelry. The correct definition of the girth of the wrist will help to ensure that your favorite accessory becomes an integral complement to your image. Continue reading
