Rare Gemstones

          What Defines A Rare Gem Stone 

As we analyze the internet data for searches we find that, a substantial volume of traffic is triggered by the search for rare gem stones. So what is it that defines a rare gem, how can the rarity of a gemstone be defined. In the simplest sense you could say that a rare gemstone is one that is found in limited quantity. In this case we define the term rare to mean, restricted availability of a gem. We set a parameter of supply to define whether a stone is rare or not. Unfortunately it is not as simple as that, in this report we talk more on this topic.

Rare gem type: You might have heard of gems that are found in very few or possibly, only in one part of the globe. For example, Tanzanite is found only in the African country of Tanzania. This means that there is not too much of Tanzanite on our planet, the gem can be referred to as a rare gem stone. Another such gem is Chrome Diopside, the world's gem requirements of this gem come from no other coutry besides Russia. We can therefore say that Tanzanite and even Chrome diopside are rarer as compared to many other gemstones. In this case the gem type itself defines it's rarity.

Rare gem size: Now let us talk about another popular gem stone aquamarine. Could you refer to this a rare gem based on type. Aquamarine is mined in Brazil, Madagascar, China and even some parts of Sri Lanka. As expected, the supply of aquamarine exceeds that of Tanzanite and Chrome Diopside. The definition of a rare gemstone takes an interesting twist here if you spoke of large aquamarine gems. A 20 carat aquamarine gem stone is not easy to find, you could surely say that aquamarine stones in such large sizes are rare gems. The important thing to understand is that there is no standard size that will classify the gem as rare, you will need to consider the type of gem stone too. So if you talked of Swiss Blue Topaz, finding a 20 to 30 carat piece should not be very difficult. But if you wanted an 80 carat swiss blue topaz gem, you would not find too many of them. So an 80 carat blue topaz could be defined as a rare gem stone.

Rare gem color: Another interesting feature that could push a stone to be called a rare gem. Morganite is a pink variety of beryl. Unlike pink sapphire or pink tourmaline, the color of a morganite gem is a very pale pink. The gem is neither very rare nor very abundantly available. But if you came across a 3 to 4 carat morganite gem that has a good shade of pink that is not very pale, you would say that it is a rare gemstone. Rare gems like rubies and sapphires can get even rarer if, your selection is restricted only to pieces with very good color. For example a natural ruby gemstone with a color that resembles the blood of a pigeon, is highly sought after but extremely rare.

Rare gem shape: Certain gems are always cut in some standard shapes. When the gem stone is seen in a shape that is not common for that gem, people refer to it as a rare gem stone. While this sounds okay, we would not strongly agree with this. A heart shape emerald gem is not common, but you could easily get an emerald cut to that shape! When you come across rubies cut in the shape of a leaf or blue topaz cut into the shape of a flower, the right term to be used would be 'fancy' shapes. Unless the gem is rare based on type or size, do not bundle it in the category of rare gem stones.

Rare and natural: It is expected that the term rare gemstones be reserved for natural stones. For example, a natural peridot that is the size of your thumb would be quite rare. But an artificial ruby that is manmade cannot be called rare even if, it matches the size of an automobile wheel. A gem quality natural turquoise that is around 40mm long would be called rare but, a reconstructed turquoise that is a whooping 200mm long should not be referred to as a rare gem stone.

Changing world: Though not much thought is given to this, a gem could be rare and then not rare after a few years or vice versa. If gem miners discover many more mines that can output gem quality tanzanite gems, we might need to cease referring to Tanzanite as a rare gemstone. A gem like aquamarine which is today mined in many countries, can become rarer after a few decades. In a more subtle way, gradual lack of availability of large sizes can push a gem into the rare gemstone category. Less than two decades ago, you could find Mozambique Red Garnets in the 6 to 8 carat range fairly easily. Today you would need to restrict your requirement to the 3 to 4 carat size range, if you need large volumes of big Mozambique Red Garnet gems.

This report on rare gemstones is compiled to clear confusions related to what is a rare gem stone Gem sellers are ready to pour imaginery data on buyers and push buyers to make an impulse purchase. We hope that this report will enable you to make a wise decision by separating facts from marketing hype. We have heard stories about Tanzanite depleting, we have heard that spessartite garnet is living it's last few pieces, we have heard that only a handful of tourmalines remain on our planet. This is sales talk that you should not believe, stay informed and make a sound decision.

Kaisilver handpicks and custom cuts all gem stones, we can procure and cut just about any gem stone on this planet for you. Rare gem sizes, shapes and ofcourse rare gem types are something that you can contact us for. So whether it is a gem that is rare as Axinite or a swiss blue topaz which is rare because of it's 40+ carat size, we can get it for you. Large heart shaped emeralds are rare because of their shape but, the fact that we get our gems including emeralds directly from the miners means that we can custom cut any shape or size for you. 


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.
