Marquise Shape Gems

Page  1  

While marquise shape gems have been around for a long time, the marquise gem stone jewelry is quite limited. One of the interesting thing about marquise gemstones is that, they are almost always worn by ladies. Not much of men's jewelry is made with gems of this shape. No particular reason for that but, it has been an established trend for many decades. There are a few issues that need to be understood and considered when cutting and setting marquise stones. A jewelry designer who does not care to understand the important issues related to marquise shape stones, will most likely end up making a jewel that is substandard and lacks durability.

Marquise shaped gems by virtue of their basic shape and dimensions, involve a higher rate of weight loss during the cutting process. This is one of the reasons why some gems are easier to find in marquise shape as compared to others. In general you can say that, larger marquise shaped gemstones are made in the low to medium priced gemstones. For example, you could get a 10mm x 5mm marquise shaped London blue topaz without much effort. But try getting the same gem shape and size, in a medium to good grade blue sapphire and you will surely have to do a lot of hunting.

We now come to the issue of setting marquise shape stones in jewelry. The gem mounting method should be thought of at the design stage itself. The tips of a marquise shaped gem are quite sharp and pointed, they are also likely to chip or break if left fully exposed. The ideal way to set a marquise shaped stone would be to border the entire stone with metal, this should ofcourse include the tips of the gemstone too. While all jewelry designs with marquise shaped gems cannot be made in this way, there is another option that can be considered. A type of setting that can effectively protect the pointed corners, uses 'V' shaped prongs that 'cap' the pointed corners. If you use this method to set a marquise shaped gemstone, make sure that the setting is neat and firmly holds the gemstone.

We now come to another interesting issue related to marquise gemstones. When setting a marquise gem, a significant degree of skill is required from the craftsman. Pressure applied needs to be just right, a higher than required pressure level can cause the pointed corners to break and this means a damaged gem stone. On the other hand, being extra cautious and applying too little pressure can give a loose gemstone fit. This can cause the stone to drop off the jewel. So as you might have guessed, the possibility of gemstone breakage during setting is quite high. This is one more reason for the limited production of jewelry with marquise shaped stones.

Who Is Kaisilver?

Having established itself as the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, Kaisilver now extends it's merchandise line to include gems. While there is no shortage of gem stones in the global market, reliable sources for the retail buyer requirements are not many. Most retail gem dealers work with limited inventories, this reduces buyer options. Another problem with these small dealers is the lack of information and reliability when it comes to gem authenticity and value for money. Kaisilver with it's wide network of gemstone mining and manufacturing resources, is the best source for gems of all types, shapes, sizes and cuts. With a support team that is compromised of jewelry and gemstone experts, the advice and suggestions made by the team relate to your requirements and not to fixed sales targets. The website shows a small sampling of the gems that we offer. You can infact request for just about any gem on the globe. All gems are sourced directly from the source, closely inspected and then custom cut by our expert cutters. With a buyer base that includes fashion models, government officials, casino and resort owners, lawyers, financial experts, students and professors, doctors and surgeons, sportsmen and newsreaders we have become the preferred choice for quality gems and jewelry. By cutting out middlemen commissions and multiple agents, we provide great value for your money. Our large online operation does not stop us from welcoming even the smallest order. Gold and silver jewelry is custom made with equal attention to quality, material and craftsmanship. You can choose from our designs or send us detailed for the style and design that you need.


How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
