what is a genuine gemstone?
Creating a love token that can bridge generations
Gemstones have been prized across our civilizations and the ages for their intrinsic worth as personal embellishment, as symbols of power, and perhaps more importantly, of love. We are committed to the art of perfecting the gemstone. We take what nature has given us and transform it into a token both given and received, as a gift of love that may hold its symbolic value over generations.
A gemstone is a mineral formed by nature which is cut and polished for use in jewelry or decoration. Gemstones are also frequently used for watches, writing instruments, and more recent consumer markets such as lifestyle electronics and eye-wear. Gemstones can be found in nature in different levels of quality, and can be judged according to four factors: beauty, durability, rarity, and value. The beauty of a gemstone depends on the perfection of the cut, which transforms the rough material into a valuable, sparkling and beautiful gemstone. Swarovski Gemstones are unique, as we take only the finest quality rough and cut it to perfection to make every jewelry piece truly special. Thanks to Swarovski’s exceptional expertise and innovative technology, our precision-cutting techniques bring out the maximum brilliance, fire, and color intensity of every single stone.
