Natural Blue Diamonds: Most Precious Gemstones

The word 'diamond' is derived from an ancient Greek word. Diamonds are the hardest known naturally occurring substance on earth. These highly priced gemstones are known for their beauty, durability and strength. The hardness of diamonds depends on their degree of purity. Pure and flawless diamonds exhibit higher degree of hardness. The precious gemstones show extraordinary optical characteristics.
They appear clear, transparent and colorless. The treasured gemstones are widely used in jewelry, including broaches, necklaces, earrings and rings. Apart from existing in colorless form, diamonds also exist in colored form. Some colored diamonds are yellow, brown, green, purple, orange, red, pink, black and natural blue diamonds.
Colored diamonds are formed due to the presence of impurities in the crystal lattice. Natural blue diamonds are formed due to the presence of boron in the structure. The hues of blue vary depending on the amount of boron present. The intensity of blue color increases with increase in amount of boron. Different hues of blue found in natural blue diamonds are fancy blue, fancy dark blue, fancy light blue, fancy vivid blue, light blue, greenish blue, intense blue and deep grayish blue.
Natural blue diamonds are the rarest, most valuable and expensive. These colored gemstones account for less than 0.1 percent of the total diamonds produced across the world. These precious gemstones are valued more because of their rarity, legendary timeless mystique and regal beauty. These valuable gemstones were used in necklaces, crowns and other royal styled jewelry items worn by kings, queens and aristocrats. These blue colored gemstones symbolize calmness and serenity. They are considered a symbol of classic and sophisticated elegance.
These colored gemstones are very expensive. They can be priced at $550,000 to $580,000 per carat. Further, the value of these precious gemstones increases with the increase in purity and intensity of the color. The most valuable hues of blue are fancy, fancy vivid and fancy intense blue. A fancy light blue colored diamond can cost up to $70,000.
The most famous natural blue diamond in the world is the Hope diamond. The largest blue diamond originally weighed 112.25 carats when it was found in Golconda, India in early 1600s. The cut weight of the gemstone is 45.52 carats. The diamond is named after King Henry Philip Hope. The gemstone is known for its notorious past. The diamond was sold tothe King Louis XIV of France and it became a part of French Royal Treasury. The gemstone is now displayed in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.

The Most Popular Precious Gems and Stones in Jewelry Today

The typical jewelry aficionado can list her favorite gemstones without thinking. However, every woman has a slightly different wish list when it comes to rare rocks and precious metals. Aside from the fact that "diamonds are a girl's best friend," each and every precious gem gives its own hint as to the wearer's tastes and personality quirks.

The rarest gemstones - rubies, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds - tend to rank high in the gemstone popularity contest. Luckily for the gift buyer with an average annual income, not every jewel lover lusts after the world's most expensive rocks. The earthy tones of citrine stones and the royal colors of amethyst, for example, attract their fair share of fanfare.

Some of the world's best-selling gem stones aren't especially surprising - think diamonds - but others are a bit more curious. Here, then, are some of the world's most sought-after gems and stones.

Diamonds: These colorless sparklers aren't exactly the underdog of gemstones. In the U.S., men traditionally get down on one knee before their bride-to-be with a diamond ring in hand and countless cultural institutions - movies, novels, pop songs - have made specific mention of the diamond's endless appeal. Today, the diamond takes many new and popular forms, appearing in pinks, yellows, blues and black. This classic stone is popular among both genders and represents timeless elegance.

Pearls: Nothing underscores classic style like these soft white globes. Indeed, these rare beads have been immortalized by Glenn Miller's '40s swing hit "A String of Pearls" and iconic wearers like Jackie O. and Audrey Hepburn. Although you may not think of pearls as stones, they are in fact gems of the most organic order, formed when a tiny grain of sand finds its way into an oyster shell. Their popularity can be attributed to the fact that pearls are sleekly glamorous and can be worn with any attire. Although white tends to be the popular choice, gemstone buyers are drifting toward champagne and chocolate-colored pearls as well. Black pearls are counted among the rarest of these gems.

Peridot: The yellowish-green August birthstone has been gaining its fair share of traction in the rock popularity contest. Its newfound popularity among both designers and buyers may have much to do with its relative rarity. Olivine, the class of stone to which peridot belongs, may be incredibly abundant, but gem-quality peridot is not.

Emeralds: Even rarer than diamonds, emeralds can be difficult to obtain in large stone form. Perhaps this is a factor of their popularity: We all want that which is difficult to come by. The rarity of emeralds certainly contributes to their hefty price tags, but these soft green stones are beloved for more reason that one. Today, emeralds mined in Colombia make gorgeous additions to rings, pendants and necklaces.
