Square Gem Stone Rings, Essentials For Good Rings With Square Gemstones
Square gems might seem to be no different than gemstones with other shapes, but this is not so. You will find that many gems are not easy to find in square shapes, especially beyond a certain size. For example, a square 6mm blue sapphire might not be hard to find but, go beyond the 7mm square sizes and both rubies and sapphires will not be easy to find. The reason for this is really not lack of demand but, technically square gems by their shape and proportions involve a high degree of material loss during the cutting phase. Most gems loose around 60% to 90% of their weight when cut from the rough to the final cut material. Square shaped gems often give even lower yields than this,so manufacturers prefer not to cut those shapes.
Let us presume that you do manage to get a square gem or a ring with a square gemstone, you will need to make sure that the ring is well designed and crafted. The point is that the jeweler who sells you a square gem ring completes his obligations the moment you pay him or a few months later when the warranty on the ring expires. But you obviously want your gold or sterling silver square ring to give you many years of wearing pleasure, this is what longterm durability is all about. So what exactly are the essential features of a good square gem ring, we explain these in this report so do read and understand the details.
Design: This is the starting point for any jewel, most jewelry lovers think that design is only related to the external appearance of the ring. While appearance can be purely a personal preference of each individual buyer, there are more functions that a good design is expected to perform. The design of your square gem stone ring would define the way in which the square stone in your ring is mounted. The best mounting in terms of durability is to have the entire edge (all edges and corners) of the square gemstone bordered with gold. This is not always possible and some buyers feel that this gives the impression of, too much metal and too little stone. You can then strike a balance between style and safety and choose 'L' shaped right angled prongs for the gem mounting. These prongs will cover the pointed corners of the square stone and reduce the chances of them breaking or chipping.
Stone cutting: You might not be able to request for a specific cutting style if you choose a readymade ring with a square gem. But choosing a custom ring will give you more control over this. In most cases, the thinnest portion of a faceted gem are towards the edge of the gem stone. This is true of square shaped gems too, add the issue of pointed corners for a square gem and things get clearer. It would be good if the gem used in your square ring is cut with a slightly higher thickness towards the edges. A custom jewelry provider should be ablet to do this if he really has total control over the entire production process.
Craftsmanship: A good design and well cut gemstone can be wasted if the craftsmanship is substandard. When setting the square gemstone, a craftsman needs to put just the right amount of pressure on the edges and corners of the stone. Too much pressure can cause the edges and corners to snap or chip, too little pressure can make the setting loose. If you had to purchase a mass produced square gem stone ring, it is unlikely that each jewel can be given the individual attention that it deserves. A good custom ring with square gem can cater to each design and style and also give attention to the specific properties of each gem.
