Before buying jewelry or a fine stone, find out if it was treated in any way. If it was, find out how. There are several different types of treatment, and each one needs it's own type of care. Cleaning a treated gem using the wrong chemical might damage it.

When you and your partner are looking at engagement rings, make sure that the ring is cut in a style that will reflect your lives.

Find out more about the gems you look at. Ask about where they came from and to which category they belong. There are three different types: natural, synthetic and imitation. Imitation gems are made out of glass or plastic; natural and synthetic gems both consist of real gemstone. Natural gemstones are mined, while synthetic gems are artificially grown.

A beautiful, but quite often overlooked gemstone, is Alexandrite. Depending upon the lighting levels, the stone may appear alternately green or purple. It is often used in earrings, rings and pendants.

Try to purchase sets of jewelry as a gift for someone. Buying a set of jewelry can get you a deal many times. You can then give a piece of the set to a loved one on several different occasions. You will always have presents ready for your loved ones, even if you did not plan in advance.

If you are looking for diamond brilliance without the price tag, consider purchasing an illusion setting. An illusion setting involves placing a mirrored plate on your ring before the diamond is set. The diamond is mirrored when on your hand so that it appears larger and more sparkly. There's only one problem with this setting: it can be hard to fix if the piece becomes broken.
