Diamonds are considered to be treasured gemstones. Diamonds are used in necklaces, bracelets, rings and in other types of jewelry. A diamond is well-suited for daily wear because it is not easily scratched.

Diamonds used for jewelry are graded according to the four Cs, which are commonly called carat, cut, color and clarity. These are very important aspects of a diamond. There are a variety of different cuts. There are round brilliant, marquise, pear shaped, oval, heart shaped and princess cut diamonds.

Diamonds are found and mined in various locations around the world. Central and southern Africa is responsible for nearly half the world’s diamond production. Canada, India, Zimbabwe, Angola, Brazil and Russia also produce significant sources of the mineral. Diamond fields were discovered in Africa in the 1870s.

Due to a diamond’s hardness, they are used for many applications other than jewelry. With such high demand for diamond in industry, scientists have been working on techniques to produce synthetic diamonds.

Gem-quality synthetic diamonds are also manufactured in a laboratory, such as cubic zirconia and silicon carbide. Chemical vapor deposition is one particular method of making synthetic diamonds. This method can produce crystals that are several millimeters in size but this technique is mostly used for coatings.

Emeralds, rubies and sapphires are also considered precious gems. There has been a traditional classification of gems that goes as far back as to the ancient Greeks in that some stones are labeled as precious and some as being semi-precious. Today, diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds are labeled precious stones with all of the other gemstones being classified as semi-precious stones. This can be a little confusing though, since a precious gemstone is not necessarily more valuable that a semi-precious one.

When looking for a gift for someone you love, whether it will be for a man or a woman, a visit to a local jewelry store is the place to start.
