Matching Pairs

What are Gemstone Pairs?

Gemstone pairs are simply two gemstones matched as closely as possible in size, shape and color for use mainly as earrings but also for certain ring and brooch designs.

What are Gemstone Pairs used for?

The most obvious use for gemstone pairs is for earrings but they can also be incorporated into other jewelry designs. For example, rings with two stones - sometimes referred to as ‘toi et moi' or ‘forever us' rings - look fantastic with two identical gems on display.

Some ring designs have a main or 'center stone' with gemstones on either side called 'side stones' and matching gemstone pairs are ideal for this style.

Jewelry design is limited only by the imagination so there really is no end to the possibilities to using gemstone pairs in jewelry.

Many of our gemstone pairs are drilled for use with standardized pegs for earrings.

What type of Gemstone Pairs are available?

We currently have over 80 different gem types available as matching pairs. This includes the very popular amethysts, citrines, garnets, peridots, sapphires, topazes and zircons as well as a wonderful variety of less well-known gemstones such as spinels, sillimanites, prehnites and labradorites.

What sizes are available in Gemstone Pairs?

We have a complete range of sizes available as gemstone pairs from tiny diamonds just a few points in size all the way to large jasper or rhodochrosite cabochons which can weigh 20 carats each.

In between we have matching gemstone pairs of every type, color and shape in a range of sizes to suit any jewelry item whether custom made or standard settings.

How much are gemstone pairs?

Our gemstone pairs are available in many different types of gemstones so there will always be plenty of options to suit your budget.

For colored faceted gemstones, the prices can range from the very reasonable citrines, amethysts and peridots to the pricier sapphires, demantoid garnets and tanzanites.

Opaque cabochons in a variety of colors and patterns are always an affordable choice for gemstone pairs.

Generally buying gemstones in matching pairs is more expensive than in singles as there is a lot more material waste involved as well as the time taken to create or locate two identical stones.

What shapes are available in Gemstone Pairs?

We have examples of every common gemstone shape in our collection of gemstone pairs. The most popular shapes are round, oval, pear and marquise but square, trillion, cushion and octagon shapes are plentiful and we even have some flower and fancy shapes in stock.

What colors are available in Gemstone Pairs?

Although matching gemstones for color is one of the most challenging aspects of finding gemstone pairs we have pairs in every color you could possibly desire.

Blue, green, red and colorless gemstones are the most popular but we also have gemstone pairs in pink, yellow, orange and violet.

Bi-color and multi-color gemstones are very tricky to match perfectly but we do have a large number in stock and they can make very interesting jewelry items.

Gemstone Pairs Color Matching Tip

Finding gemstones for matching jewelry sets is not easy. If you buy a colored gemstone for a ring setting and at a later date decide to create some matching earrings it will be much more difficult to find a matching pair with identical color, clarity and cut. The best idea is to get all the gemstones at the same time, that way you will be sure to get the best possible match.

Can I filter Gemstone Pairs?

Yes, you can. We have a number of filters to help you find just the matching gemstones you need. On the left hand side we have all the different gem types that we currently stock in pairs as well as all the shapes available and at the top we have buttons to select color, clarity, price range, country of origin, size and more. Use these options to narrow down the selection until you get just the matching gemstone pair you need.

Are there any gemstones pairs that cannot be matched?

All gemstones can be found in matching pairs but it is harder to find partners for some more than others.

Certain gemstones such as tourmaline and tanzanite can appear to change color as they are viewed from different angles - a phenomenon called pleochroism. This makes them even more complicated to facet into identical stones as the angles and planes of the crystals within the stone have to match up too.

Others such as spectrolite, ammolite and opals are totally unique so we have to rely on the expert judgment of our in-house staff to find the closest possible matches.

Very easy to use and find what i was looking for for the holiday shopping, though the items descriptions at times felt vague espicially in regards to them being associated with zodiac signs. I understand that it's what some look for but for me it confused the expirence only slighty.
