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.
Diamonds boast many features
Diamonds boast many features that make them stand out from other gemstones. Diamonds are now sold online at safe, reputable, and secure sites. The good news is that consumers need no longer purchase a diamond in a physical jewelry store. One of the best features is that they are naturally available in a wide range of colors, giving consumers many options when it comes to creating a customized piece of jewelry.
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. Clarity and weight are other important qualities when it comes to diamonds. The modern diamond comes in a wide range of prices, meaning that almost anyone can afford a diamond of some kind. Unlike the brown and yellow diamonds, blue diamonds are not as common in nature.
How Durable is My Gemstone Jewellery?
First of all a note about the hardness and therefore relative durability of gemstones. To measure hardness, the jewellery industry uses the Mohs scale. This gem-trade standard, conceived by Friedrich Mohs in 1812, measures the ability of a gem or mineral to resist abrasion damage.
Diamond at 10 is the hardest whereas talc at 1 is the softest. Popular gemstones like amethyst and citrine register 7 whereas rubies and sapphires register 9. Most of us come off the beach on the first day with the 3 sís all achieved - rings caked in sand, sea-salt and suntan lotion. Nude sunbathing, as far as silver and gold jewellery is concerned, is a must! Remember also that sand will scratch the surface of precious metals.
