Charming interplay of colours

Coloured gems make for a striking focus of attention in jewellery, and their cheerful brightness makes them very popular particularly during the warmer months. The interplay of their natural colours creates a particularly charming effect in combination with diamonds, giving your jewellery an added brilliance.<br />

Admiration

Coloured gems are admired particularly for their special characteristics, for example their rarity and also their hardness. It is these characteristics that make coloured gems extremely suitable for jewellery manufacture, since they can be cut and set in jewellery items. In addition to these quality criteria, coloured gems are prized for their natural clarity and their colour, which make them so extraordinarily effective.

The most popular coloured gems are topaz, tourmaline, rose quartz, amethyst, citrine and peridot:

Wagner Living Stones Small - Farbedelstein

Topaz

Rich in colour variants, it is above all topaz that is used for large, high quality pieces. The rare blue topaz is also referred to as “noble topaz”.

 

Wagner Living Stones Diamonds – Topas

Wagner Jolie - Farbedelstein

Tourmaline

A similar variety of colours applies to tourmaline: colourless, pink, red, yellow, blue, green, violet, black and multi-coloured.

 

Wagner Jolie Oval Cut – Turmalin

Wagner Balou Heart - Farbedelstein

Rose quartz

Rose quartz is also highly distinctive, with a colour range extending from pale pink to bright pink.

 

Wagner Balou Heart – Rosenquarz

Amethyst

Amethyst, with its transparent and clear mid to dark violet colour, is a sought-after coloured gem which combines well with other coloured gems.

Citrine

Another favourite is citrine, with colour variants ranging from light to dark yellow and even to golden brown.

 

Wagner Balou Cushion – Citrin

Peridot

For example, it can be beautifully combined with peridot, with its predominant colours of yellow-green, olive green and brownish tones. Peridot is also sometimes referred to as chrysolite.

 

Wagner Balou & More Oval – Peridot

The hardness of gems is stated in Mohs. Diamonds are the hardest mineral on earth, with a Mohs hardness of 10. The coloured gems referred to above have a hardness of 7 Mohs. If handled carefully, gems are unlikely to be damaged. We recommend that you have your jewellery cleaned with ultrasonic cleaner at regular intervals in a goldsmith’s workshop that you trust, and also that you have the settings of coloured gems checked by an expert.

Farbedelsteine & Diamanten

Set in 18 karat gold, these coloured gems – perhaps in combination with diamonds – make for a fresh, youthful and subtle play of colours, for example in the Balou & More and Living Stones Classic jewellery collections. In the Jolie Collection from the House of Wagner, coloured gems are set as solitaires and are shown off to perfection with a diamond-studded ring band. Whatever coloured gem collection from Juwelier Wagner you choose, a truly special look – be it casual or elegant – is guaranteed.
