Some gemstones require slightly more care than diamond jewelry does. This is because they aren’t as tough according to the Mohs Hardness Scale. Please come in to Hoover’s Jewelers and we can talk about the best options available for you!

Birthstones for every month

Many stones are based off color, the more color the stone emits, the more beauty is conveyed. Below is a color Hue Scale and a Tone scale that may be able to answer some questions you may have. GIA and it’s Graduate Gemologists use these scales when appraising gems in the color they emit. The photo below, only covers a few gems, but our Gemologists and staff are happy to answer any questions you may have. It’s no question, gemstone jewelry is a beautiful choice.
