Color, clarity and rarity make a stone to be called as ‘Precious Gem’. There are many debates and arguments about the ‘Precious Gems’ in terms of their type and kinds. As per the holy Bible there are several ‘Precious Stones’, namely; Agate, Amethyst, Beryl, Carbuncle, Carnelian, Chalcedony, Chodchod, Chrysolite, Chrsophrasus, Coral, Crystal, Diamond, Emerald, Hyacinth, Jasper, Ligurus, Onyx, Sardonyx, Pearl, Ruby, Sapphire and Topaz. However, the modern International Jewelry Industry defines only four Gemstones to fall under the category of ‘Precious Gems’. They are Diamond, Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire. We will discuss about these four major ‘Precious Gems’ starting with Diamond.

Diamonds are said to be the girl’s best friend and believe it or not they are crazy about the Diamond Jewelry and collect them as much as they can. Diamond is the hardest mineral known as of today and is primarily rich in carbon. Diamond is also graded according to the cut, color, clarity and carat to be sold in the market. The trade of Diamond is done on international level in loose and jewelry forms. Loose diamonds are further categorized into rough and finished diamonds. The rough diamonds may prove to be risky purchase as it may loose its value in the finishing process and may break of prove to be of lesser value then expected. Hence, the trading of finished diamonds and diamonds jewelry is done popularly across the globe. 

Emerald on the other hand is rich in Beryl mineral and also has traces of chromium. Like diamond, the grading system for Emerald is same and then this wonderful ‘Precious Gem’ is sold and bought easily in the market based on the grades given. Emeralds are also treated in the jewelry manufacturing units to enhance the quality of this natural stone and sell it for a higher price. Emerald is generally green in color with the shades of green and a little transparency. The Emerald Jewelry is very popular among people from different countries and it is often mixed with other ‘Precious Gems’ to make a piece of jewelry like necklace, earrings and rings.
