Gold bangles are the most expensive ones
Bangles are also an important part of jewellery as earrings and chains. All types of bangles are worn by women in pairs, with one or bunch of bangles in both hands. There are many types of bangles in India such as gold, metal, glass, silver, plastic, platinum and wood.
Gold bangles are the most expensive ones so first bangles were made from metal. To look more attractive Indian women started wearing gold and glass bangles in combination, instead of wearing only gold bangles. These bangles are smooth with some texture or set with stones. They are worn in groups, so any arm movement that you make will create pleasant sounds. In traditional functions like marriage glass bangles are mostly preferred.
Gemstones are identified by gemologists
Gemstones are identified by gemologists. The first characteristic a gemologist uses to identify a gemstone is its chemical composition. Gems are characterized in terms of refractive index, dispersion, specific gravity, hardness, cleavage, fracture, and luster. They may exhibit pleochroism or double refraction. Who describe gems and their characteristics using technical terminology specific to the field of gemology.
Next, many gems are crystals which are classified by their crystal system such as cubic or trigonal or monoclinic. They may have luminescence and a distinctive absorption spectrum. For example, diamonds are made of carbon (C) and rubies of aluminium oxide (Al2O3). Another term used is habit, the form the gem is usually found in. For example diamonds, which have a cubic crystal system, are often found as octahedrons.
Care for Antique Gemstones
Gemstones are a valuable part of any piece of antique jewellery. Common sense is the best preventative measure when caring for any antique gemstone. Although the metal components of ornaments often receive the most attention, gemstone care is equally as important.
Hairdryers should never be used to dry freshly-cleaned gemstones, and no pieces should ever come in contact with chlorine. It is crucial to protect antique jewellery as a whole, in order to maintain as much value as possible over time.
