Gemstones are extracted from the Earth’s crust through mining and are transformed into beautiful shapes, sizes and cuts. Designers at the KGK group leave no stones unturned in coming up with both traditional and fancy designs to match the taste of buyers across age brackets.

Gemstones are fascinating; they go through a fine process of cutting and polishing to get the shape and colour the customer seeks. It is only after proper polishing and finishing that the gems can be used for jewellery making. This holds true for all gemstones such as emeralds, rubies, diamonds, topaz stones and other precious and semi-precious stones. Let’s take a look at some of the lesser known gemstones:

Amethyst

This beautiful purple coloured stone looks very pretty if moulded into a ring. Its purple colour can range from a very light shade to an extremely dark purple. Not only its beautiful colour but the wide availability of this gemstone in a variety of different shapes and sizes, make it far more popular.

Citrine

Citrine possesses a bright golden-orange colour. Its name has been derived from the French word ‘lemon’, which represents its light-yellowish colour. Most people choose a Citrine based on their personal preference for the shade, but Citrine mostly has a clear, radiant yellowish to brownish red colour.

Blue Topaz

Blue topaz is again a very popular form of topaz stone. Though topaz stones come in a variety of shades, varying from yellow to white, gold to pink, to orange, the blue topaz stone is one of its kinds. Sky blue in colour, the blue topaz is one of the rare stones that is incredibly beautiful.

Peridot

Peridot comes in a single shade i.e. ‘lime green’. It is the birthstone for those born in the month of August. Peridots are often used in conjunction with other coloured gemstones to form a rainbow. These are lighter than emeralds and are sometimes, used as a substitute for emeralds.

Garnet stone

Garnet is a multi-coloured stone that has beautiful orange to brown shades. It is the birthstone of those born in January.


Gemstones add a lot of colour to one’s life and they can be teamed with the trendiest of outfits.
