Bracelet are popular jewellery item
At Blue Nile, all our platinum bracelets are made of platinum. Blue Nile gold bracelets are made from the finest 18k. This provides a perfect match of beauty and durability. Pure 24k gold is soft and easily bent while 14k gold is mixed with other metals that potentially dull the color of your gold bracelet.
Our silver bracelets are crafted from the highest-quality pure sterling silver, and all are inspected for a fineness mark to ensure quality. Our sterling silver charm bracelets and charms are created exclusively for Blue Nile. Our high-quality charms feature a custom lobster claw, designed to precisely fit either of our unique bracelets.
Gems are silicates which can be very stable, hard minerals. Like gemstones, one of the characteristics of a precious metal is its rarity. A few gems are oxides and only one gem, diamond, is composed of a single element, carbon. Often, new names will be created for ordinary sounding minerals which sound prettier or more valuable, such as Moldavite for the green variety of tektites.
It could not be "precious" if it were common! This means that the metal must be malleable, that it can be bent, hammered, or otherwise shaped. Two other characteristics are also important. There are also many gemstones that are not true minerals, but which are gemstone varieties of recognized minerals.
Diamond jewellery is the most elegant form
Most people agree that diamond jewellery is the most elegant form of jewellery on the market. Common colors, such as white and yellow, are usually quite affordable. The two most commonly found colors are brown and yellow. While individuals often pay more for a fancy gemstone, white diamonds with a slight hint of color will be less expensive than truly colorless diamonds.
The website includes a great deal of gemological education focused on diamonds, including what they are and how to buy them. Remember that size does not necessarily translate into quality. The color of the diamond is another important issue. Rare colors, such as pink and blue, are the most expensive. The pink diamonds are the highest in price.
