Before going to a jeweler, a short course on stones by Marthan Lorand - Jewelry

Diamond

It is one of the oldest and most famous stones created by the Earth. Over 3 billion years ago, carbon rocks began to crystallize more than 250 kilometers underground. High pressure and high temperature are essential for the crystallization of carbon, the component of diamond. These conditions make it the hardest stone in the world, with a rating of 10 on the Mohs scale (a scale of stone hardness graduated from 0 to 10).

How diamonds are defined

  • Carat. The carat is the international unit of measurement in the world of gemstones. It corresponds to the weight of the stone, i.e. 1 carat = 0.20 grams. The weight of a stone depends on its density. For example, a one-carat diamond should ideally have a diameter of 6.4 mm. However, not all one-carat stones are the same size.
  • Color. Color depends on the amount of nitrogen in the original rough. The color criterion is evaluated in terms of letters: from "D" for the most beautiful color to "Z". The more nitrogen your diamond contains, the more yellow its color tends to be, and the less valuable it will be.
  • Clarity. Clarity is evaluated according to the natural inclusions present in your stone. These are caused by crystallization. Most inclusions are colorless and therefore invisible to the naked eye, and have no impact on the color of your stone. The purer your stone, the higher the grade.
  • Cut. Cut is evaluated not only on its shape, but also on the way it is cut. The symmetry of the facets impacts the brilliance of your diamond. This ensures perfect reflection of light.

Sapphire and ruby

They belong to the same family known as "corundum". They are differentiated by their components, which do not give the same color but retain the same properties, including hardness (9 on the Mohs scale). After diamonds, they are the hardest stones.

Historically, the most admired rubies were of a color known as "pigeon's blood" red, a deep red with a hint of blue, which came from Mogok in Burma. Today, due to the country's geopolitical situation, they have become very rare.

These days, rubies from Montepuez in Mozambique are the most common on the market for very fine stones. French jewellers have come to appreciate this intense color with a hint of pink.

By 1880, sapphires were making a name for themselves with their velvety, royal-blue color, which did not go unnoticed by the great jewelers. It was at this time that the most beautiful sapphires appeared: Kashmir sapphires. Their deep blue enchanted lovers of exceptional stones, but production unfortunately dried up in 1980. Today, Ceylon sapphires (blue or colored) are the most sought-after, especially by top jewelers.

Emerald

It is a stone of such distinctive, captivating green... Like aquamarine and morganite, emerald belongs to the beryl family. Emerald has numerous inclusions known as "gardens". These are inevitable during crystallization. Despite its hardness of 7.5 on the Mohs scale, emerald is considered the most "fragile" of all gemstones.

Since the 16th century, the finest emeralds have come from Colombia (known for producing the purest emeralds). In recent years, emeralds from Zambia and Brazil have become increasingly popular. This stone is a true miracle of nature in its design.

What you need to know to choose a stone

Diamonds are sold with an international laboratory certificate. The most reputable are the HRD (Antwerp) and above all the GIA (New York), the world's leading authority. This non-profit organization certifies a diamond's value according to the International Grading System based on the 4Cs (Carats, Color, Clarity, Cut). At Marthan Lorand, all diamonds from 0.30 carat are sold with an international laboratory certificate.

Other gems can receive a "Colored gem treatments". It is characterized by the modification and/or presence of colored foreign matter. The aim is to artificially improve the stone's appearance, color or weight. These treatments weaken the gem and do not last over time (they are reversible, the stone changing appearance over the years). At Marthan Lorand, you won't find any treated gemstones.
