9780943763729: Colored Gemstones, 3rd Edition: The Antoinette Matlins Buying Guide--How to Select, Buy, Care for & Enjoy Sapphires, Emeralds, Rubies and Other Colored Gems With Confidence and Knowl

Newly updated and expanded,
COLORED GEMSTONES gives you all the
information you need to buy, collect, sell―
or simply enjoy―sapphires, emeralds, rubies and
other colored gemstones with confidence and knowledge.

With more varieties than ever before to choose from, including altogether new gems, revolutionary new cuts and new ways to buy gems―such as Internet auctions and TV shopping―there has never been a more exciting time to buy or collect colored gemstones. But there are also new high-tech treatments and sophisticated frauds to look out for. Lack of information, error or misrepresentation can make the thrill of buying a gem or piece of jewelry confusing, intimidating, overwhelming and costly. Buyers need a source of expert guidance.

This practical, comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide provides all the information you need in order to know what to look for, and what to look out for, including:

  • What qualifies as a "gemstone"?
  • · How to evaluate color―and its impact on price.
  • Deciding between a natural gem and an enhanced gem ... and new glass-gemstone compositions.
  • Colored gemstone synthesis and treatment.
  • What to ask when buying the stone.
  • What to get in writing.
  • How to get what you want within your budget.
  • Price guides for popular gems, opals and synthetic stones.
  • Important information about buying on the Internet.
  • ... and much more!

Written by an “insider,” this easy-to-read guide is the “unofficial colored gemstone bible” for anyone who wants to get the most for their money and enjoy what they have purchased.

Newly updated and expanded is a key reference for any library catering to gemstone collectors and jewelry makers. This includes all the basics needed to assess gemstones and how to avoid common issues form how to identify a natural versus an enhanced gem to what to get in writing when purchasing, and how to establish and stay within budget. New gems, new cuts, and new buying methods via Internet and TV shopping are all covered here.
