How to care Gemstone?
To remove any detergent, rinse the stone in the same temperature water as the soaking solution. This type of stone can be strung on silk or nylon thread, the silk being a better choice because it fails to accumulate as much dirt as nylon. For diamonds, sapphires, and rubies, bring an equal mixture of household cleaner and water to a boil.
Opals contain almost one-third water and are therefore particularly vulnerable to even moderate temperature changes. Remove from heat and allow the gemstones to soak in the solution until it cools. Thermal shock happens when a stone is instantly transported from one extreme temperature to another. They are all nature's gifts to us. There are more than 40 popular gem varieties and many rarer collector gemstones.
Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval. The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone.
This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.
