|Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) / Gemstone Measurement|
Most of your gems have measurements like 6 x 4 x 3 mm. But I notice some of the gems have only two measurements, such as 6 x 3 mm. Why is that?
The measurements we give for most of our gems are length by width by depth, with the measurements in millimeters. For round gems, however, we give just two measurements, since the length and width are the same. So when you see a set of measurements like 6 x 3 mm, it means the gem is round and 6 mm is the measurement for the diameter.
