Coloured gemstones have long been a favourite of many in expressing their personalities. Although diamonds are the most popular stone, coloured gemstones offer more options in terms of expression and creativity.
Any coloured gemstone other than a ruby, emerald, or sapphire is considered a semi-precious gemstone. Generally speaking, semi-precious stones are more abundant than precious stones. As such, it is easier to find larger stones with excellent colouring for use in jewellery. The value of semi-precious stones varies from stone to stone depending on the availability of the mineral. Due to the wide range of colours available, semi-precious gemstones are the perfect choice for people wanting to create their own look in regards to their jewellery.
