How To Choose & Buy Loose Gemstones: The Perfect Customizable Present

When special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries come, nothing is more thoughtful than getting your loved one a customizable present. Surprise your partner with a loose gemstone. Together, bring this precious stone into a shop to design a piece of one-of-a-kind jewelry. Knowing that there’s no one else in the world who has the same piece makes your gift even more meaningful. 

Why pick this present? Let’s count the ways:

  1. She can choose a design that fits her personal taste and style.
  2. It’s a thoughtful gift that she probably won’t purchase on her own. Furthermore, she can be creative 
  3. A loose gemstone always fits. 
  4. You can decide on a setting together.
  5. In a world of disposable products, custom jewelry lasts for generations.
  6. It can be a family heirloom.
  7. A personalized pendant, ring, or bracelet is a wonderful conversation piece.
  8. She can be hands-on during the design process. 

How to choose a gemstone

Consider the recipient’s lifestyle when picking the gem.

If your loved one is very hands-on and always on the go, go with a type of gem that’s hard enough to accompany her during her activities. Sapphire and diamond are well-known for their toughness. They don’t break easily and can stand up to daily wear as a ring. 

Look at the virtues the gemstone symbolizes.

Precious stones have been around since ancient times and over the years, people have associated them with certain virtues. For example, a citrine is believed to provide optimism, self-discipline, and power to its wearer. Meanwhile, aquamarine is thought to improve communication. 

Spruce up an engagement ring.

This is a wonderful idea if your partner has been planning to upgrade her ring. A new gemstone can add a pop of color to the original style of the ring. While some prefer to keep the addition simple, others want a more dramatic change into the design and metal color. 

Pick a birthstone that means a lot to her.

Birthstones come in a variety of shades. Aside from giving them a gem that symbolizes their birth month, you can pick any other significant date. A suggestion, if you met in December, choose a turquoise. She may also love a ring with both of your birthstones.

Think about what matches her interests, talents, and beauty.

What’s her favorite color? Will she be intrigued by the flash of color in an opal or the unusual inclusions in a rutilated gemstone? Perhaps, you want a gem that matches her eyes? If you know your recipient’s individual tastes, you’ll find a gem that will match her. 

You can always opt for a generic gift but choosing something that can be tailored to your loved one’s personality is priceless. Whether your sweetheart wants it in a bracelet, necklace, brooch, or ring, a loose gemstone is sure to fit perfectly.
