Unique Gemstones for Artisan Jewelry

Unique Gemstones for Artisan Jewelry
Unique Gemstones for Artisan Jewelry

Artisan jewelry is the heart beat of our industry, creating one-of-a-kind pieces of art that capture the essence of each individual gemstone.

We at GemSelect recognize the influence of artisan jewelers and keep in stock a great range of interesting and motivating gemstones that we feel are ideal for use in exclusive handmade pieces of art.

It is very difficult to keep up with all the possible choices in the varied world of gemstones and you may have missed some of our more uncommon specimens.

We have broken down our gemstones into 3 or 4 ideal examples of distinct styles.

The artisanal craftsman will be able to draw inspiration from each splash of color, sparkle of light, swirl, twirl and whirl of pattern, curve and bump.

Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeter (mm)

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
