Jewellery Shops Mansfield


You have looked in a number of the jewellery shops Mansfield customers have available to them and tried to pick out the perfect piece of jewellery. Whether you are looking at necklaces, rings or something different, it can be challenging to pick out something that is ideal for the situation. One of the things that can be challenging is picking the right stones from the multitude of pieces available in the jewellery shops Mansfield customers can visit.
When picking the right stones, there are a few things to consider.
The first is the colour of the stones. Although it might seem obvious, the colour of the stone is the most noticeable thing about a gemstone. When visiting jewellery shops, Mansfield customers will see diamonds which are a clear or white sparkle, sapphires which are generally a shade of blue, or rubies which are a shade of red. But there are other colours available as well, such as green peridot, violet tanzanite and milky opals. As well as the main colours, there are variations of shade within a type of stone. Take sapphires, for example. Whilst sapphires are blue, some people prefer the paler blue, whilst others like the darkest inky blue-black shades. Take the time, whilst shopping in the jewellery shops Mansfield has available, to find the stone that is right for you.
Additionally, the cut, or shape, makes a difference. A popular choice is the brilliant cut, the traditional ‘diamond shape’ which is known for its bright sparkle. But there are other shapes which can give a completely different appearance to the stone. Many have facets, or flat sides with sharply angled lines. However, an older style is to have cabochon stones, that is rounded and polished stones. They can give an eye-catching and vintage appearance to any piece.
Whilst shopping for your perfect jewellery in the jewellery shops Mansfield customers can visit, you need to consider the general wear and tear that the jewellery will receive. This will affect the choice of stone as well as how it is set in the jewellery. Not all gemstones are of equal strength, and not all the jewellery shops Mansfield customers can visit will advise you of this. Some stones are particularly hard – diamonds, sapphires and rubies are examples of very hard stones, rating 9 and 10 out of 10 on the Moh scale which is used to measure the hardness of stones. In contrast, emeralds and garnets rate between 7 and 8, whereas opals are closer to 5. The lower the hardness of a stone, the less resistant it is to knocks and bangs. When it comes to bracelets and rings in particular, softer stones are more suited to jewellery for occasions than for everyday wear.
