Choosing Your Stone
With so many design decisions it can be intimidating to know where to start while customizing a piece of jewelry. It can help by prioritizing the things you know you wont budge on. Maybe a high quality stone is where you would like most of your budget to go, or maybe you have a specific band style at the front of your mind. If we know where to begin and a general budget, Beaudet Jewelry will strive to make your dreams a reality.
A great place to start when choosing a stone for your jewelry is with the color! Each variety of gemstone come in a large range of colors varying in both hue and tone. If we have a color range in mind we can then begin talking about clarity and cut.
Price ranges for stones vary widely based on a number of factors. Cut, clarity, and color are often the deciding factors on the value of a gemstone. Availability and color trend can also effect the value of a stone.
Not all stones are created equal. Stones have a variety of hardness' which can effect the longevity of the stone. At Beaudet Jewelry we strive to educate our customers on their purchasing decisions and how it will effect their jewelry for years to come!
