Genuine Gems and Luxurious Pearls Jewelry are gemstones (also known as a gem, fine gem, jewel, precious stone, or semiprecious stone) is a mineral crystal cut and polished and used to make jewelry or other adornments.   However, certain rocks (such as lapis lazuli and opal) and organic materials that are not minerals (such as amber, jet, and pearl) are also used for jewelry and are thus frequently considered gemstones. Although most gemstones are hard, some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties with aesthetic value. Another factor that contributes to the worth of a gemstone is its scarcity.

There is no universally accepted grading system for gemstones. Diamonds are graded using a technique developed in the early 1950s by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Historically, all gemstones were graded by sight. The introduction of 10x magnification as the standard for grading clarity as part of the GIA system was a significant innovation. Other gemstones are still graded by eye. Material or flaws within a stone may be present as inclusions

Gemstone pricing and value are determined on the basis and features of the stone’s quality. These characteristics include clarity, rarity, lack of flaws, beauty, and the demand for such stones. Both colored gemstones and diamonds have different pricing influencers. Colored stones are priced based on market supply and demand, but diamonds are more complicated.  The value of a diamond can fluctuate depending on location, time, and the opinions of diamond vendors.

Gemstones are also valued by proponents of energy medicine due to their alleged healing properties.
