Indian women prefer wearing either gold or glass bangles
Gold has a religious connotation in India and a deep social significance. Most Indian women prefer wearing either gold or glass bangles or combination of both. Primary distinguishing factor for these is the material that is used to make the bangles. There is no place for stagnation in Indian art and craft, for although forms are repeated, they are free from imitative intent.
Bangles made from lac are one of the oldest ones and among the brittle category too. Lac is clay like material which in molded in hot kilns-like places to make these bangles. Among the recent entrants are the rubber bangles that are worn more like a wrist band by youngsters while the plastic ones are there to add the trendy look. Lac bangles are made of shellac mixed with different colors to give a finest shape of bangles, using chatons, rhine sones, mirrors, beads etc.
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's clarity is graded
Diamonds with Slightly Included and better grading are progressively more expensive. These include; internal graining, cleavage, bearding, cavities, crystals or minerals, knots, feathers and clouds. After that, we go to the various grades of included diamonds. There are two types of flaws: an inclusion and a blemish. A blemish is something that mars the surface and distracts from diamond clarity.
This includes chips, pits, nicks, scratches, naturals, grain boundaries, and polish lines. The Internally Flawless diamond cannot have any inclusion, but may have surface blemishes. The diamond is then graded on the basis of five considerations: color, nature, position, size, and number. The clarity of the diamond is one of the primary determinants of price when it comes to rings, earrings, and other jewelry. This article will focus on how a diamond's clarity is graded.
