Gemstones & Gemstone Jewellery

Apr 12, 2023

Wear your favorite gemstones in our beautiful sterling silver settings

All our gemstone jewellery is set in 925 Sterling Silver. We have many different styles and sizes ranging from your everyday solid set gemstone to delicate filigree settings. Some pieces are single set gemstones and some are multi set, giving your the advantage of having several different gemstones in one piece that compliment each other, not only on looks, but also in healing properties. Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver but is generally too soft for producing jewellery, therefore 925 sterling silver is used to give the jewellery durability and strength. Chemically silver is not very reactive, however when exposed to some atmospheric pollutants, silver will very slowly produce a green/black tarnish which is easily removed by a gentle polish with a silver polishing cloth.

The importance of selecting the correct gemstone

When buying gemstones it isn't always about choosing the right colour, though colour is one of the most important factors. Choosing the correct gemstone jewellery will reflect both your personality and fashion style. It is also important to look for the correct stone if you are using them for their vibrational or healing properties. You need to consider not only the healing, metaphysical, emotional or physical properties, but wearability, durability, versatility, availability and also affordability. these are all very important aspects when choosing the correct peice for your needs.

There are several other perhaps lesser factors to consider when purchasing your gemstones and gemstone jewellery. They are quality, colour, clarity and cut. Sometimes the gemstone will attract you and this is perhaps because it is the gemstone you truly need, or perhaps have an affinity with it and simply love the colour, shape and style.

Whatever you do, make sure that you hold the piece before purchasing it. Take note of how it makes you feel and any experience that comes with it. This will often be a good indicator that you have chosen the correct gemstone. We also supply a short write-up about your stone on purchase outlining it's most common properties. You can also look at our list of meanings below to help you in choosing the right stone before you even step foot in our Cairns store.
