Gemstones By Type

     Directstones Provides All Gems Custom Cut As Per Your Specifications    


If you were to talk about the types of gemstones available today, a gemologist would provide a scientific and detailed explanation that would go beyond the understanding of most gem stone buyers. For example, you could classify gems as being organic or inorganic. Amber is a gem that has an organic origin since it is formed from the sap of trees. Amethyst would be inorganic since it is basically a type of quartz which is a mineral rather than an organic substance.

However for most gem lovers, there is one important classification of gem types that is extremely important. Some gems are naturally formed and others are made by man. Gems produced in a factory might look awesome to the casual gem buyer but, they have a far lower value as compared to gems that are found naturally. Man made gems were at one time clubbed under one single name, they were called imitation gemstones. As the gems and jewelry industry grew, commercial exploitation of the consumer began to develop. Sellers started introducing confusing technical jargon in a bid to differentiate their factory made stones sold by other sellers. Imitation gems got further divided and came to be called, synthetic stones and lab created stones. A synthetic gem is basically a piece of material that resembles a natural gem only in color. For example, a piece of colored glass or resin could be called a synthetic ruby if it had a reddish color. When it comes to lab created gems, there is an effort made to clone a natural stone by it's chemical structure too. For example emerald is a type of beryl, a lab created emerald would be have the same chemical composition as a beryl. This would mean that the color that is imparted to natural emeralds also gets imparted to the lab created emerald. This is because the chemical structure of natural emeralds is copied and cloned into the lab created emerald too. So you now have natural gems, synthetic gems and lab created gems. Both synthetic and lab created stones are man made and should be priced lower than their natural counterparts.

Some gems are classified as birth stones, others as anniversary stones. Gemstones have also been alloted to each day of the week. The belief is that wearing certain types of gems can enhance certain positive benefits. Similarly other types of gems can reduce the effects of negatives thoughts, actions and events. While medicinal properties have also been attributed to many gems, it is not advisable to use gemstone theraphy as an alternative for professional medical advise.

There is one more characteristic by which many gem stones are grouped. You might have heard of transparent, transluscent and opaque gems. Some gems like citrine, peridot and garnet allow light to pass right through the stone, such gems are referred to as transparent gemstones. Gems like fire opal can sometimes be transparent and sometimes be partially transparent. Similarly jadeite can be opaque with no light going through or partially opaque. Gems which are neither fully transparent not fully opaque allow some light to pass through the gem, such stones are called transluscent gemstones.

It is generally seen that most gem manufacturers are interested in large orders. This is especially true when it comes to fairly inexpensive gems like citrine, red garnet, amethyst, smoky quartz etc. Gem buyers who need a single piece that is specifically cut according to their requirements, find it hard to get what they need. The Directstones.com resource strives to meet the requirements of such small buyers. You could be an ambitious designer all charged up to create that unique and wonderful jewel, the gemstone you need might be inexpensive but also hard to find in small quantities. We would urge you to discuss your requirements with us. You can always email us at sales@kaisilver.com with your requirements. We will procure even a single stone for you and custom cut it according to your specifications. While the gems on this website show some of the gems that we offer, there is no limit on which stone, size and shape you can order from us.

 

Who Is Kaisilver?

With a spectacular online track record that extends over 8 years, Kaisilver is today widely accepted as the global leader in online custom jewelry. A team of over 3,500 skilled craftsmen and gemstone cutters works on all custom jewelry orders received by us. Seven top notch designers drawn from five nations ensure that buyer requirements are well understood no matter which part of the globe they come from. This wide expertise allows us to produce high end jewelry of all types, modern, traditional, historic and even antique. The gemstones used in our jewelry are not leftovers, they are not drawn from a fixed inventory. We have instead developed and built a close network with the world's largest sources for gemstone mining and manufacturing. This gives us priority access to over 200 million carats of gems. In the majority of cases, fresh batches of gems are first made available to us. We then pick the cream of the lot and the remaining gems are returned to the gem manufacturer, that is the produce that then hits local markets in various countries.

So why then have many people not heard of Kaisilver. The reason is simple and straight forward. At Kaisilver we do not believe in spending big bills on advertising and publicity gimmicks. Though we do have fashion models and sportsmen in our customer list, we do not use them as sponsors for our custom jewelry. We realize that expensive showrooms and commission driven sales staff all add up on the price tag. The final buyer needs to bear all these overheads and this reduces the material value that the buyer derives for the price paid. We have as a policy, kept away from hiring sales staff. All customer service requirements are made by experts in gems and jewelry. We use customer satisfaction levels as a bench mark to measure staff capability and capacity. So it is customer satisfaction that keeps us in business and ensures a high growth rate.

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 sales@kaisilver.com 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.

Buyer Testimonials.

Fashion models, sportsmen, politicians, lawyers, financial experts, doctors and surgeons, members of the armed forces, newsreaders and journalists, students, casino and resort owners make up most of our buyer list.
